Indie PC Gaming for the Console Connoisseur

Indie gaming on the PC is easier than you might think. Here's an introduction to getting started, and some games you might enjoy.

People are always saying to me that they can’t game on their PC because it’s not powerful enough, or it doesn’t have this, or it doesn’t have that. Well, I’m here to tell you that might not be true.  While playing AAA games and other major releases may require hardcore gaming rigs, there are a lot of lower budget indie games available that are cheap and easily playable on the most basic of systems.
