Year of release: 2007

Some people may not even remember the dinky little PSN indie game Everyday Shooter, but those who do know that it was a surprisingly addictive and fascinating experience. Made by indie developer Jonathan Mak, it combined a dynamic soundtrack with easy-to-love twin stick shooter controls for an experience that was good for five minutes or five hours of play. Everything from the graphics to the music itself feels handmade, but not cheap. Every projectile, enemy and explosion adds to the ever-changing soundtrack. It's hypnotizing in a way. If you've never experienced it, do yourself a favor and download Everyday Shooter.
