Too many games!

I have this coming (and a few other pre-ordered). Now I see they released an Uncharted 1 and 2 combo pack. I never played either of them so I'd like to get that too. But already playing Deus Ex Revolution too! I need to quit my job. Need more time to play video game.

Both are among the best video games I've ever played.

The only flaw with the game is how desolate it is. No interactions with people, no towns... nothing. Pretty much the open plains and areas where the Colossi are. Story is very interesting and the boss fights are incredible though. It's the only game I've ever liked that was so empty with so little interactions.


what you state as a flaw is the game's biggest asset and in fact its what the game is all about. the feeling of solitude and otherworld is just amazing. adding up more elements to the game would have spoil the general mood of it and ruined that special feeling about it.

I am heartedly looking forward to grabbing this collection for my PS3. I cant wait!

troll hunter is spot on. that's the feeling you're meant to get. when you, or anyone else who perhaps felt the same way or plays it for the first time when this is realeased feels this, embrace it. the fact you still enjoyed it at least says you're almost there.

stupidly i made a thread on this a couple days, i checked for one but clearly missed this one. i think i like talking about these games too much.

I just beat Ico.

This was one of the best ending sequences in any game I've played. From the final battle to the ending cut-scene to the post-credits sequence, perfection. What a great overall game too.

I'll probably pick this up after I'm done with Rage.
