SuperBrothers: Sword & Sorcery EP
LIMBO
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Psychonauts
Bastion
Lone Survivor
Braid
Super Meat Boy

Over 560,000 bundles sold to date, over $4.7 million dollars raised! That is absolutely insane.

Humble Indie Bundle must be one of the greatest things ever conceived.

Full agree and this bundle in particular is beyond amazing... I got it before they added Braid and Super Meat Boy, now it's even better. If you like gaming and you don't get this... something is terribly wrong with you.

Dear god, they actually ported ES to a piece of celery!

Just played Psychonauts for a few hours, it's is a ridiculous amount of fun. I hope to find time to play more of it soon.

I busted open Braid for the very first time... my mind it not quite up to puzzles right now. About to try Super Meat Boy.

I beat Braid a while ago, I think it was in one of the past bundles. Super Meat Boy is a bit too difficult for me, it's something I'd prefer to play on a console. A lot of fun though. Very MegaMan-esque.

For me, Limbo is the gem in that bundle. Absolutely fascinated by that game from start to finish - it's a testament to what indi games can be like. I didn't think I'd like it, but those game mechanics are just so fluid and right for the job. Put the over-rated Braid and Meat Boy to one side and give Limbo a go :D.
Health, ammo.... and bacon and eggs.
