Continue Play takes a look at one of the most memorable moments of Phil Fish's infamous game FEZ.
Oh man...Fez... An amazing game that seemed simple in premise but opened up to be something much, much more for those that wanted to dive deeper. The only game in recent history that had me dedicated enough to TAKE NOTES IN A NOTEBOOK in an attempt to solve it's ciphers and puzzles without looking things up online. The last game that had me that engrossed was the original Myst game way back in its heyday. It's a shame that Phil Fish is so arrogant and does not 'play well with others' that he basically forced himself out of the business. Don't get me wrong, I certainly give hardcore props to the man, but he got in his own way after the release. Unfortunately, I think many people will forget all about Fez in coming years. I will, however, have my notebook and will always look back fondly on it.
Yeah it was such an amazing game. Without defending the way he reacted, there's no denying that Fish was the target of a pretty concentrated campaign of abuse and unpleasantness. I hope that someday he decides to return to the industry, because Fez II really deserves to get made :)
