I've grabbed:

Psychonauts

Which I'm enjoying quite a bit.

VVVVVV

Haven't played any of this yet.

Super Hexagon

Which refuses to launch at the moment. I think I'm missing a 32bit library.

A Story About My Uncle

I enjoyed a lets play of it, but it isn't as great to actually play thus far.

MIND: Path to Thalamus Enhanced Edition

Not sure yet. Feels like it's aiming for something it doesn't quite hit. Pretty, though.

A Bird Story

I cried twice. I'd be picking up To The Moon based off of this.

NEO Scavenger

Played enough to know I'll like it, but that's all.

Shelter 2

I've already failed my kittens. :(

Crypt of the NecroDancer

As yet unopened, but I've wanted it for a while

TIS-100

Satisfying. I wish I had a mechanical keyboard and a CRT to play on.

Dropsy

?????

Braid

Another game I've wanted for ages.

Good games, Dropsy is actually one of my all time favorites as far as the artistic elements of a game are concerned. Beautiful, sad, and silly all at once. Chris Schlarb does an amazing job on the soundtrack, and I really appreciate that there are no words in the game.

VVVVVV is tough as shit at times, play with a controller if you can.

Braid's great, I played the whole thing in one sitting. Fight the urge to look up solutions to any of the puzzles.

I haven't checked to see if they're on sale, but two great puzzle games that don't seem to be that widely known are Snakebird and A Good Snowman is Hard to Build, if you're into that sort of thing. Be warned, Snakebird will take your sanity.

I just beat it. Took me a long while to realize that he was adding new drawings of his friends in his bedroom.
