Once again, I have selected for the list a game with no "end." You would think I'd learn by now. Anyway, Terraria is a charming little indie platformer/exploration/construction game. If you mixed Minecraft with Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, this is about what you'd get. The game is fun, open, interesting, and very very free-form. You start out on the surface with some very basic tools and start tunneling, fighting monsters, and building stuff. The game is a lot of fun, but also a bit of work, so I would recommend it, but I would also recommend it not be the ONLY game you're playing. Still, very enjoyable and charming. It's also quite inexpensive, and the creators have released 5 content updates since it came out, which was less than a year ago. A fantastic value for a $10 download-only game.
