So I recently finished playing Journey, the game by That Game Company, which from what the credits say our very own Dan Paladin did some work on. Despite this though I thought this to be a very boring game from beginning to end. Perhaps I'm missing the message, but then again a clue here or there would help. I guess I got some clues every time I prayed at an alter and got some cryptic vague flashback, but it didn't really help.
I heard that some people can instantly pop up and help you on your journey, which is what happened to me and to be completely honest that was the best aspect of the game. I didn't know where we were going, what we were doing, or even the point of it all was, but I was enjoying this ride with this random stranger that I had never met and who had played the game before, so that was fun. However without him I probably would have just been exploring this world.
Speaking of that, this world is absolutely beautiful, it is truly one of the most breathtaking games on the PS3. With nothing really telling me much about the world or why I should give a damn though, it loses its appeal pretty quickly. The journey with a random friend is what made this game for me.
Now it is time I take my first steps into the Mass Effect world.
So what have ya'll been playing?
