Check out some sweet independent games from John Murphy. The surreal game Acid Couch even has some great soundtrack composition by Andy Nelson and Dan Polak. It's OK if you have to visit the freak-out tent.
From John's website:
I think that I get the most inspiration for game design from socializing and experiencing the world. It seems like most of the people around me only think of games as software and themselves as software developers. While this isn’t inaccurate, I am mostly interested in creating engaging experiences for other people, and so I spend a lot more of my time out in the world than most game development students that I know. I am always looking to observe and experience everything that people (myself included) find to be fun or interesting.
