    The reason why I didn't put newgrounds is that it is mostly a site for free games. The purpose of the list is to provide resources for indies who are interested in selling their games. Though newgrounds may be a nice site to send out a free remixed version of a commercial game, the audience skews more towards those who are there for free games and are generally not the buying type.
