JB writes: Deadly Premonition. A game that apparently divided reviewers when it first appeared. The cover of the copy I have says 10/10. I knew, however, when Steph handed me her copy to borrow, that I was heading for a nightmare of controlling hell. I think it helped to know it would be torture, because it did stop me rage quitting at the beginning.
Apparently, it was panned when it came out. It promptly went on to acquire a cult following (as these things do), and now nobody can decide whether it is brilliant or terrible, or both. I think it might actually be both. There are moments, playing this game, where I think, this is genius. Or I fall over laughing. And other times I want to kill everybody involved in making this game. In the face.
