Title: Finally went back and finished Braid.

I decided to go back and plough through this game today, after stopping for some reason not long after it first released. Yeah, the story isn't much, but it is an absolutely beautiful game to play, and the puzzles are very clever.

I got all the achievements for it except the speed run. I can't see myself doing the whole game in 45 minutes.

Me neither, I stopped short of the speed run (and didn't get the hidden bonuses either that apparently reveal a little more text at the end of it).

Although I needed help with some of the puzzles, I deliberately kept myself from any information regarding the story, so the twist in the final level came as a very clever surprise. Apart from that, well, it's all a little vague for my taste. Reminds me of literature classes in high school where we were supposedly expected to see all kinds of symbolism when I just wanted to enjoy the story.

Yeah, the story was nicely written, but it was just fragments... and it was written to sound deeper than it actually was.
