Revisiting Deadly Premonition

Deadly Premonition begins with our protagonist, FBI agent Francis York Morgan, traveling to the backwater town of Greenvale in the dead of night.

Make no mistake, Deadly Premonition is a very weird game. Released for Xbox 360 in early 2010 and now reissued as a Director's Cut for PS3, it's not the type of game boardrooms traditionally green light. For the average gamer, it's a dog. It looks ugly and it's confusing. Deadly Premonition, by most units of measurement, is a failure.

So why is it considered by some - and by me - to be among the best games of the current console generation? (Deadly Premonition, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut, PS3, Xbox 360)
