I do a lot of research looking for Indie games. Because of Game Review Hero now I find games even when I am not looking for them. It has gotten to the point where I am almost crippled with anxiety when I find a page like this.

It seems innocuous right? A single page with a video and some links to games, but each of the links has a couple links on it. Then you find a site like this one, this one, or this one which has hundreds of games listed and 90% of them are crap…

The Indie Game Universe

It often leads down the proverbial rat hole, from the depths of which I find myself steeped in so many free games I’m not sure what to do with myself. I came to a realization today though. These types of sites are a whole new classification in the gaming universe. I have decided to dub them gaming nebulae. Some of them we know about, like Kongregate, New Grounds and ModDB. Some have been around a long time, some of them are larger than others, but all of them have one thing in common: they are troves for finding interesting games to play.

Clearly I will never run out of games to add to Game Review Hero.

Ugh, I found another one.
