Brutal Legend gave me the gift of metal

Brutal Legend and its mullet-bearing roadies, fire-spewing engine blocks, and axe-wielding hero gave me the gift of metal. (Brutal Legend, PS3, Xbox 360)

Another title from my pile of "wish I got around to playing them" games.

Yeah, same here.

Except mine is a metaphorical pile, because I don't have the money to buy games and not play them...

Mine was too.

Haha, I finally got around to playing this just this past week. It's pretty cheap on amazon/eBay.

I never liked metal but I gotta admit, some of the music was good. From the easy to listen to Mr. Crowley by Ozzy Osbourne to the ridiculously well placed Cry of the Banshee (really, there's nothing like driving around the game with that song on).

Decent game, nearly perfect game world, touching story that's still funny and Jack Black (whatever your opinion on him) does perfect as Eddie Riggs.

It fits the atmosphere of Halloween (I'm also playing Double Fine's other game that fits the season Costume Quest). Everyone should try it out used on eBay or new on amazon. It's about $10.

I know exactly what this guy's talking about. I realized that I actually enjoy heavy metal after playing through Brutal Legend earlier this year.

It was a great game but traveling took AGES even in the cool car, upgraded by Mr. Osbourne.

There needs to be more games like this that capture the essence of rock and metal. I loved this game, the soundtrack and the characters were a joy.

Spread the word of Metal, melt some faces and blow some minds.

I did go back and start listening to a ton of Sabbath and Judas Priest (members of both bands are featured in the game) when I was playing Brutal Legend. AND I HAVE NOT STOPPED LISTENING TO THEM EVER SINCE.

You can't kill the metal. That's all you know.

Oh, and I do not need a microphone.
