1001 Video Games

Cave Story appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Legacy

In many ways the game has set a trend in quality for indie platformers. This has also led to it being brought up in discussions about originality in the indie games community. New games, even often of a completely different genre, are often described as Cave Story rip-offs, but mostly not seriously and rather as a running gag.
