First off, before you put another 10 hours into Skyrim, or finish that one side quest on Mass Effect 3 or even do an other 15 useless matches of Call of Duty, download this game and experience the masterpiece for yourself. The object of the game is simple, Make your way to the big shinning light. In the midst of that, you as a red hooded, nameless hero goes on a quest. You are not only determined, but you are emotionally destroyed in some ways, your in the middle of a big desert by yourself, or so you may come to think. Until you will come across someone who is working towards the same goal as you. Your heart jumps and you will with excitement in the lonely desert. Your empty emotion is now replaced with a bit of joy. Although you can only communicate with small chirping you still feel connected to them.
These are just some of the emotions you will have while playing through Journey. Journey is not as much about the game as it is the artistic experience, much like Shadow of the Colossus, Braid and Flower. Rather Journey easily fills the red hooded hero as yourself. The story book feel to the game adds to the immersion of the piece. The stringed instruments lightly compliment each foot step you take. In Journey, you and the controller become one in your quest.
But don't just take my word or anyone's word for it. Go download this game and experience Journey for yourself. Please enjoy.
