So Uncharted 3 was released the other day, and of course I picked it up and completed day one (it's getting to be a bad habit, buy a game, finish game, wait for next game!) Now I know your wondering, what does this have to do with inFamous? Well guess what game went straight back on? Correct (apart from the one person that said Battlefield 3, you naughty boy)
Now I'm not saying Uncharted 3 is a bad game, far from it, it's a very good game that I'll continue to play for years to come, it'll be in my top 5 of the year, it's just not as powerful. Let me explain:
I've come to regard games as important a medium as music, films and books, and the most powerful examples from any movie book song etc etc are ones that make you think, make you laugh and by extention make you cry. Now anyone who's seen my post's here and on The Escapist will know that inFamous 2 made me cry, and I don't mean a "Oh that was a sad ending, boo hoo, let's make a cuppa" I'm talking full on "That was so sad" sat on the sofa crying for an hour! I've played the game countless times through (tho only once evil) an I still cry at the end. That's a powerful ability and one that Uncharted 3, as good as it is, hasn't done for me.
Let me know what you think and if your on The Escapist drop me a friend request, I'm putowtin.
Light Love and Peace.
