I played Psychonauts (got it as part of the Indie Bundle V) and I was surprised how much it sucks despite all the critical praise. The writing is amusing, but that's all it has going for it. Game-wise it's just an old N64 platformer but with frustrating controls and a camera. If you're going to make me do generic platforming, at least give me smooth controls and camera. I might be able to forgive the terrible gameplay if it had good atmosphere, but the graphics are ugly as hell and I can't stand the whole 'wacky music' thing. No wonder this game didn't sell well.

Sword and Sworcery EP, on the other hand, is proving to be pretty good. It's light on the gameplay end, but it's more about the atmosphere of the graphics and music, which I think are excellent.
