Microsoft's Xbox Live Indie Games platform isn't exactly the main draw for the console, but it still has its fans. Let's see what those fans thought of 2009's lineup.

IndieGames have compiled two lists profiling the highest rated games on the service in both the US and United Kindom. Remember: these aren't the most popular games, or those raking in the most cash. They're the ones that have the highest user ratings.

As you'll see, some of the games have had a little media coverage, but others haven't, so don't go blaming exposure for the results. Blame the quality.
