Although this game released way back in 2012, we recently revisited it and have discovered that it is just as fun the twentieth playthrough as it was the first time we played it. Hotline Miami is an 80s-themed game where protagonists Jacket and Biker are assigned to kill members of the Russian Mafia.
There’s no shortage of gore, and the game’s killer soundtrack will really get your blood pumping. If you haven’t played Hotline Miami, you should check it out and find out what all the buzz is about! You can buy Hotline Miami for $10 on Steam, GOG, and the PlayStation Store.
The Binding of Isaac
For us, this game is actually extremely sad. In The Binding of Isaac, you play as a naked little boy named Isaac who is forced to retreat into the basement to avoid being killed by his overly zealous mother. In the basement, Isaac encounters a slew of terrifying beasts that he must fight against using… his tears.
The game is an extremely challenging dungeon crawler, and you’ll never play through the same game twice. There are interesting items to pick up, like one that makes Isaac cry blood (gruesome), and a wide variety of rooms to explore. How large is Isaac’s cellar? Well, you have to buy the game to find out! You can buy The Binding of Isaac for $5 on Steam. Additionally, you can find The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth on most platforms (albeit for a higher price point).
