    So a 6 hour mash up of Half life 2 and Bioshock won lol.

    It's alright but not half overrated.

    I'm going to lend Dishonored from my mate and see what the deal is as I've heard so many good things.

    Its a very decent game but its debatable whether its worthy of this award over other titles, i guess its down to personal preference in the end. I liked it even if i did get a little board of it, i thought the artistic style was nice too.

    Spot on, all about opinions.

    I loved it myself and it was top of my list for last year.

    I enjoyed what I have played of Dishonored. Whether it deserves any award at all is trivial to me. As much as a review score versus the content of said review. It's a game well worth playing and if you enjoy this type of game then you should at least have a look.

    My problem with Dishonored became apparent on Monday when I decided to jump in after not playing for a few months.

    I am right near the end, I appear where I left off the last time and I have no idea where I am. I have little recollection of what has most recently transpired and as a result I no longer have a connection with the narrative or my reason for being in that predicament. This isn't so much a problem with the game mechanically or otherwise. This is a problem entirely my own. I neglected it for far too long and now cannot re-connect. It would have served me better to have stuck with the game to the end while it was still fresh. And in not doing so I have lost the motivation to re-learn the essentials.

    Sorry Arkane. You really did make a purty game Smile

    I'm guilty of the same thing - last night I spent a good fifteen minutes reading about Uncharted 3 to work out what had happened! I struggle to remember all the points of a game as I play, but have no problem with a film, which is weird.

    Journey, for me, deserves the praise, but I think it's a little different for those coming in to the game knowing more about it.

    For instance
    Show Spoiler the whole multiplayer aspect was only apparent at the end of the game. The other travellers were never explicitly real players and it was a surprise to see the PSN names appear at the end after the first run through where you'd only meet maybe one or two of them.

    Then, when you did realise, it was the mystery of the white robes and finding all the secrets the game had to offer, leading to multiple play throughs. Plus, I found myself leading other players through parts of the game without being able to utter a single word. There was more collaboration there than in many games built around co-op.

    Me too, its very hard to get back into a game when your half way through and return to it months later. Its not just a matter of following the story line again its remembering how to actually play it and its made harder because your usually at an advanced part of the game where more skill is needed, skill which you may have forgotten. Sometimes i wonder if it would be better to just wipe the save file and start again.
    Its true what you said that this does not happen with films or TV, i can go back to a TV series or movie half way through months later and connect with it no problem. Maybe its the interactive side of things with videogames.
