Crysis 2 holiday locale

The IGF awards have shown that this has been an amazing year for indie games. Minecraft we've all heard of, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent is great, too. But there are dozens of other gems to discover and play. Have a look at the IGF winners this year, many of them are free to play, or at least have demos to try.

Or perhaps you'd rather stare at some gorgeous gaming images instead. Duncan Harris' shots of Crysis are extraordinary. If you're looking for a new desktop background, it's certainly worth checking them out. But that's enough sightseeing, we're here to round up everything that's been going on in PC gaming into a handy list. Here it be.
