Journey is the most moving, beautiful, well crafted game I have played this gen. I haven't got genuinely emotional playing a game for years, but this one got me, mostly grinning in pleasure or slack jawed in awe but by the end, proper emotionally invested. |
The game design, art style and soundtrack are all amazing too, thatgamecompany must have some ridiculously talented staff.
Met several other players during my playthrough which were the highlights; wordlessly cooperating with a stranger in a beautiful, mysterious game world was brilliant. Sticking with one companion for a long stretch, especially the last hour or so, is particularly rewarding. Helping, exploring and mucking about with someone you know absolutely nothing about is a genius idea and is so well done it becomes a real joy.
A really beautiful, moving, playful game. Miniature masterpiece.
