Summary: Journey, for me, was a magical experience. When I sit down a reflect on the games I've played since December last year, many of them fall into the "interactive movie" category. There's nothing wrong with that. The Last of Us, had me thinking about its themes long after I'd finished the game, and Arkham City is an excellent story that would hold up to any of the Batman stories in any other medium.
Summary: Without a doubt, Journey had the best ending of any video game ever. I played it two times, the first time online and the second off-. Both times led me to half-sadness/tears with the other half of joy. If you just play "dude" games like FIFA or COD or s*** like that, this game isnt for you. If you, however, want to experience something meaningful from a game, this is, without a doubt, the best thing you could play. The other games aren't bad too.
the only game i have ever played that moved me to tears.

Summary: very VERY few things make me cry, i've watched some of the most emotionally moving things but nothing can come close to this. Journey is the only game that i have ever played that moved me to tears, and not from sadness but tears of joy. its been a long time since i cried from being happy and not sad. hands down journey is one of the best games in history. no contest.
Summary: After the first time through the game I knew this one is one of my favorites It is a total experience of the senses AND there are no guns or talking You may interact with another person on line and you can not speak to them If guns and blowing things up is your thing, you probably will not like this game.
Summary: This game was one of the most moving experiences of my life, and that is a grand statement for an indie video game that only takes a couple hours to complete. It is simplicity itself; your little pilgrim character must traverse a vast landscape to reach a shining mountaintop of truth, always visible in the distance (unless you are below ground).
Summary: I've played through this game at least 4 maybe 5 or 6 times. You discover something new each time you play. The sound track is beautiful and rich, the imagery in this game is breath taking. I can definitely see why it won awards. So amazing..there just aren't words to describe how beautiful every part of this game is. Even though there is no speech in this game, the story is told in a fantastic way and in a sense, it sort of lets you choose what message it gives you...
Summary: I got this for Christmas, and finally decided to try it out last night after the kids went to sleep. The game is fascinating. I would say that the pace is "patient" rather than "slow." Specifically, the game seems to wait for you while you explore and soak in the ambience. It gently nudges you in the right direction in very subtle ways. The storyline is linear, but the game does not make you feel like it's pushing you through a straight and narrow tunnel.
