Was I the only one who couldn't get into Braid? Normally I love indie games, and I played a good hour and a half of it. I just couldn't get into it though for some reason.

Lol @GotG

It sparked interest towards indie games among the console crowds for sure but that was it, nothing more.

Yep, same. I got it dirt-cheap from PSN. After playing it for a while I couldn't believe how it had been so hyped up. Nothing spectacular there. Never played it again either.

No I absoluyely loved it, it the highest rated indie ever made, and I agree with the critics

whereas Limbo and Jounrey were more style over substance this had both atruly mind bending experience and definitely in my top 10 of the generation

@podya and actually it was spectacular, shame you didn't 'get it' I only played once becasue I had such an amazing experience with it I didnt want to change my perfect memory of it

Well.. It could just be my taste in games as well. It wasn't anything about "not getting it". Because what is it really to get? It is a 2D platformer with a gimmick.

I didn't like Limbo either. I just didn't have any FUN with those games. And that is the main purpose of games for me. To be entertained.

Journey seemed fun and unique from the demo, but I never bought it.

No actually, Braid had a really neat story. But you don't really understand the story until you beat the game. One of my favorite games for sure.

ZeoN1348d ago

It was nice after all.

Right lets not get ahead of ourselves, its a good game but GOTG....I don't think so.

cyphertech1348d ago

I feel like I'm the only person who still remembers and loves this game. Loved the ending.

Chrono1348d ago

I finished this game but really wasn't anything special. To say it's the game of the generation means you haven't played many games.

gillri1348d ago

For me its the most special indie ever made a truly mind bending experience

I've played virtually every AAA title game this generation and this ranks in my top 10
