Not sure if anyone's played Fez yet, but, for those who have, did you get a sense of nostalgia playing the game?
Not even in the context of video games, but life. Fez reminded me of being a kid again. The game is beautiful, the puzzles are awesome and the entire game is exploration. That's it. FInding those cubes. And when he finds enough, Gomez floats smiling above the ground, the cube shines, and there's this urge to simply smile.
The music is gorgeous as well. These almost-melancholic arpeggios of 8-bit musical notes shape the game into nostalgia.
It's like innocence. It's like that's what it sells. A sense of innocence and young wonder.
It's a breath of fresh air from Gears of War and MW3. I love these games, but sometimes I just want to relax and drift away.
Anyone have thoughts about this game?
