Papo & Yo: A Mirror of My Childhood [GAMINGtruth]

Though not a perfect game, the indie title explores new territory--and tells a haunting tale worth exploring. (Papo & Yo, PS3) 8/10

This is probably the only review that juxtaposes the theme of the game with a real life experience. Very interesting and worth reading. Thank you, Louis.

Truth often makes the best opinion. Well written, and a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Great article and amazing game. My father had a temper and most likely suffered from clinical depression which would lead to some ridiculous mood swings that came out of absolutely nowhere but he wasn't an alcoholic and I was never really physically abused by the guy aside from the occasional slap after doing something that probably deserved one. Still though this game hit me on that same deep level, I found the ending devastating and I'd put it easily in second place for my game of the year.

Not that I'm bitching about it getting less than a 9 or anything. It's a hard game to recommend. I loved every moment of it and gushed about it in an email to a friend, my review of it was full of words like, 'beautiful' and 'moving'. I really respect my friend's intelligence but he hated the game. Writing back with a review full of words like, 'clipping' and 'collision detection'. I think it depends on which kind of gamer you are and how much lack of technical polish you're able to overlook.

That's very true. In so many ways the game is so perfect, and I was mostly able to get over the glitches and such.

Thank you for sharing your experiences, too. The game brings out people's emotions, that's for sure.
