Why Papo & Yo Should Be Game of the Year

Kotaku - Papo & Yo did something that too few games manage to do: it let me step into the life of another, actual-living-breathing person. And once I did that, I played through an experience that showed me how that person got through a painful relationship and was left with a lesson that I too could pick and use if I needed it. (Papo & Yo, PS3)

Kotoku being stupid as usual. They dont relies GOTY is an opinion so it can be any game. Some people GOTY is Mark of the Ninja while others are Journey. There is no official GOTY.

Yes, there is. It's Uncharted 2. It has won GOTY every year since 2009.

I was looking forward to the game for a good while but I found it had a few too many issues. Heck one of the puzzles was broken for me at the time and I haven't gone back to it since.

You more than likely were doing the puzzle wrong. This is a game that takes a lot of skill.

None of the puzzles I played were at all broken, and the game can be completed. In fact you don't really have to think very hard to complete them, but just like the entire game, they are just pleasant to complete.

I would recommend going back and trying again because it's worth seeing through to the end, even if you need to use a walkthrough.

@ Killzoner99, I don't believe the game requires a whole lot of skill, but I guess everyone is different.

Simply breathtaking game. You will never find an experience like it anywhere but the PS3.
Long Live Play

One of the best games of 2012. Definitely a narrative masterpiece. It is something that I recommend to ANY gamer out there with a heart and/or imagination.

The game is lovely. Its puzzles are not incredibly challenging or sophisticated, but it's highly original, expressive, wacky and whimsical. The music is unique, original and marries the rest of the game to perfection. The background to the story and characters is actually quite mature and satisfying, despite its childish and fun-looking exterior. The visuals, much like The Unfinished Swan and Journey, are excellent. That's my best description of one of the finest examples of a modern indie game.

The story is really good and sad. I think some people didnt even realise what the story is about
