One of the best games of last year, and surprisingly heartfelt. The story is as immersive and deep as you allow it to be (point and click really plays into this), but you're essentially an exile from society and you have to compete against other teams who have the...

This prequel gets the best parts of the original and improves upon the formula, once again great music, better visuals and amazing inmemersiveness. Once again the music is god-tier, with Daughter being the main star. Very relaxing and emotional, like the original.
It's no surprise that Journey got about a gazillion GOTY awards - it really pioneered this space of games being something *else*. You can communicate without words, explore a meditative world and become part of something bigger. The soundtrack is amazing!
