You know, it's probably a good thing that PAX Prime 2013 is a 4-day show this year. There's a ton of games as always from the big dogs, but the indies. Man, the indies are killing it this year. From within the massive Indie Mega Booth, to a bunch of other smaller titles scattered across the show floor, there's just so many games from smaller studios that everyone NEEDS to play. 

So as always with every PAX, we narrowed down the list and picked our top 10 favorite games of the show that were playable: 

It's never easy picking just ten. And yeah, technically a top fifteen given there's two Pokemon titles, and that Sports Friends is comprised of Hokra, Super Pole Riders, BaraBariBall, and Johann Sebastian Joust. We've talked about some of these games in the past before, but there's a good amount we just got to see for the very first here at Prime. We'll have previews on some of the newer stuff coming to you soon so you can see exactly why we dug ones like Crypt of the Necromancer, Pixel Junk Inc., and Samurai Gunn.

Until then, go vote for the game you're looking forward to the most in our community choice category for PAX Prime.

Warning: Girlvania is not a very good Metroidvania

When I see the faux suffix "vania" at the end of a word, I have a Pavlovian reaction. Visions of whipping flying decapitated Medusa heads in mid-air, exploring a Victorian mansion that defies all concepts of sound architectur...more
