I've been really waiting for this one. I'm curious to see how it functions in play. As I get older, I find I am more drawn to "games are art" games and less towards the classic genres of RPG, action, shooter, etc.

I usually don't "get" those "art" games, but this game's premise is just so unique and interesting.

I'm on the fence about "art" games. For me, it depends on how interactive they are. Some of them are little more than interactive movies where you control the camera, but others are entertaining as well as "artful".

Did you ever play Child Of Eden, Joe?

I didn't understand Flower, it was advertised as a new Zen like experience but it's built entirely on a pretty common game concept of collecting all the shiny things. A cool message, but a pretty boring chore.

Maybe I'll take more LSD before playing their next game.

I've been a little curious about Child of Eden. Never played it, though.

... whereas I thought Flower was a beautiful statement about hope and rebirth.

I'm mostly with you, joe, about games that are too much of a movie and not enough of a game. I don't necessarily call that art, though. And I actually like it if the story is good. Like, I really loved Heavy Rain. But I really hated FFXIII and, truly, I felt like I played more in Heavy Rain.

That's neither here nor there, though. I point to games like Flower or Ico as striking a nice balance between art and game. Generally not a lot of replay value and yet I probably have gone back more times to them then to, say, Call of Duty 4.

I'm not the normal gamer, though.

I've had my eye on this one for a while now.

By the way, on the complete other end of the spectrum, Twisted Metal PS3 is awesome.

Really? I was getting kind of frustrated with it.

And Joe: I was curious. I heard nothing but good things about it until it came out but it wandered into obscurity the moment it was released. Given your previous statement and what I know about it, it seemed like a game that you would have liked. Just curious.

I share True's views about Journey; I was nervous after it basically disappeared.

As for Twisted Metal, I'll have a review up sometime in the next seven days.
