JOURNEY, Best game i had ever played

Sat Oct 13, 2012, 9:13 AM
This got to be the most amazing game i had ever played in my entire life. Been a gamer for almost 30 years, played all type of games, including hentai games, hhahahahha. But i was not satisfied at 100%, i mean final fantasy 7, zelda, shadow of the colosus, call of duty, pacman. All games were amazing, especially Shadow of the Colossus that almost gave me a 95% satisfaction.



And i asked myself, i had seen it all, i topped the gaming genre, i wont cry again for the beauty and sadness like Shadow of the Colossus anymore.



I WAS WRONG-

I bought the collectors edition, i highly recommend it.


There were times i just sight and enjoyed the view of the landscapes, hearing the wind sound, then i noticed the loneliness, and felt bad, so each time i saw a companion i was so happy to begin a journey with them. I felt sad when a monster eats my companions, you truly care about them.

At first i was like damn there is another player go away, leave me play alone, but the more you play, the more loneliness you feel, that its a joy to see another traveler.



I wont spoil the game, but its too short, but somehow felts like a life time.



The game contains also flower and flow, plus other 3 minigames, incredible concept art, and soundtrack with amazing pieces like this one.

BEST DESCRIPTION OF THE GAME

Let me tell you of my journey:
I wandered towards a mountain in the distance. I did not know why.
I came across a desert full of ruins. It piqued my curiosity.
I came across a city covered in sand. It showed me what true beauty means.
I came across a cave. It was dreamlike, yet cruel.
I came across a temple. It opened my eyes.
I came across the mountain. It made me cry.
I walked into the light. It made me smile.
However, there is one thing I remember the best:
On my way I met a friend.

  • Listening to: Go-aqualia
  • Reading: imagine fx
  • Watching: Game of thrones
  • Playing: Battlefield 3
  • Eating: my pride
  • Drinking: My own tears

I'm very tempted to purchase this game but it looks very short... 12,99 euros => 16,80 US$ for about 3 gaming hours... That looks a little bit pricey for me... I may wait a discount but unfortunately Sony looks not ready (considering the good sales) to make an effort by making a real discount for this game... and the collector edition is even not available here in France :upset: only on the PSN where games are more expansive than boxed games...

I also bought the collector's edition just the other week, and love the game :D Who knows, maybe i met you. I agree that it is an amazing game, unlike anything else I have ever played.

It's a very gripping and emotional experience. Hats off to the developers.

siempre quise jugarlo, y ahora más! lastima que no tengo play 3 T-T. Yo no lo compararia con SOTC porque si bien tiene similaridades no son lo mismo...
PD: si te gustan los OST te recomiendo el de final fantasy XII, son 4 hermosos cds.

As an aspiring game design student, it was humbling to see how much Journey accomplished on such a small premise. They did it right, and I don't think any other game will come close to matching that kind of experience for years (unless ThatGameCompany outdoes themselves).

It's a bit expensive, but you should get the artbook. It has way more art than what came with the collector's edition, and all the processes they went through for each part of the game. It's truly beautiful. I might actually be having a Journey themed wedding in 2 years. :>

Yeah, the two player is absolutely fascinating, especially as it applies to the concept of the Hero’s Journey and how you rely on other player’s guidance, and in later playings you become the role of the guide for new players. Very Circle-of-Life-ish.

Also surreal to be able to play any sort of game online without someone spamming profanities.

Oh my god.

On your recommendation I checked out the music, went to the website, looked at the screen shots and movies there.

I was enchanted immediately. I couldn't stop talking about it with my husband.

Later tonight, I picked him up from our friends' house...where they had the game and he played through it. Even watching it, it was an amazing experience.

Thank you so much for letting us know about it! :hug:

We're planning to, even though we don't have a PS3 yet. When we do get one, Journey is the first game we'll have. Well, and the other two in the collector's edition. :)

And yeah, the music is phenomenal. We found the entire track set on Youtube, and have been playing it nonstop. So breathtaking.

I remember how I had such a good partner the first time I played it, and how touching it was for me to get smacked by one of the dragons and for him to come over to me after it happened instead of charging on.

Just finished playing it for the first time. I am really shy when it comes to playing 'online' so I was nervous at first. But yes I ended up bonding and caring for this stranger once we found each other. This is a ground breaking game-a new and wonderful experience. Glad you enjoyed it as well Else.

I agree. This is a very beautiful game. I met someone who basically helped me with most of the achievements in the game. I was so grateful with him, he even gave me a heart at the end (so sweet).

I played Flower as well, never played Flow. I agree. The games by this company are beautiful and we absolutely need more games like this.

This is my fan art of it. (Exposure LOL)

I wish I had a PS3, I really really really want to play this game. Have been evading all sorts of Let's plays or gameplay footage, for the chance that someday I'd be able to play it with a clean mind.
Wish they'd bring it out for PC, would pay big monies...

The same for Shadow of the Colossus, Ico,...

Ah well, you can't have everything I guess. If the PS3 price ever reaches rock bottom I'll just buy one and scavenge ebay for these games probably.

O. God.

I just listed to a track in the OST. The simple beauty and elegance, the sheer emotion, the brilliance; I think I'm in love...
Scratch all I said. I want this game NOW. With a passion of a thousand suns.

Although I can't deny that Journey is indeed an incredible game and experience with some of the most stunning visual moments I have ever seen in games ... Shadow of the Colossus is still the pinnacle of video game perfection in my eyes.

Do you have a nintendo DS? there are lots of games with good stories on that :)

also have you played assassins creed? the gameplay is not as tight as something like shadow of the colossus...but the story is awesome (especially if you play 1,2, brotherhood and revelations...the ending is great and emotionally fulfilling)

imagine exploring a giant city to this song:

It's a weird feeling seeing me and companion huddle up together at the end of the game. And I've played the ending like 10 times. I don't get all sentimental over games but this one has that effect naturally, like it's a part of the game to jump and float around with a total stranger and in some way silently communicate with them.

Kinda feels like this: [link]

(I also did a cosplay of the Journeyer's). There is so much to Thatgamecompany and how they make their games. It's stunning the things they do.
