Step 1: Download Gametap Player
Step 2: Play Free Until 12/31/2007
It's really as easy as that, no joke. One of the greatest games of all time that very few have played is really now free for about a month and a week.
Psychonauts IS one of the best games ever created and the main inspiration for 2007's highest rated game Super Mario Galaxy.
Nice find and news. I suggest you all to play it. Everyone, PS3 fans, 360 fans, Wii fans, PC fans, PSP/PC fans, movies fans, game fans, art fans, PLAY THIS MASTERPIECE.
Every chapter of this game is a different game on it's own and the whole Super Mario Galaxy could be described as only one of Psych...'s chapters. Every chapter has different story, game mechanic, design and is a full and unique game on it's own. PLAY it dammit.
If you ever played a game and liked it, you're gonna love this masterpiece. If you haven't played it, as Yahtzee said, you deserve punishment. Seriously, I love BioShock, Assassins Creed, God of War, Gears of War, Zack & Wiki, Shadow of Colossus, Okami and many other modern classics BUT Psychonauts deserves it's own special category.
It's perfection in innovation, art and level design. PLAY IT. I ask all of you, all gamers, please play Psychonauts.
UPDATE: Agreed with felman87. BUY this masterpiece now, PLEASE.
It’s not revolutionary by any means, nor is it particularly long, but thanks to some clever creative control the game delivers a funny, engrossing and downright weird experience unlike most other platform adventures. [July 2005, p.104]
What about that? :)
"It’s not revolutionary" They must have been high or something. Every single level of Psychonauts is a completely different game. I'm SURE that they never finished the game because if they ever got to Milkman level, they would have never said such thing. Or The Fish City level. Or the Theatre thing...
games(TM) fails. Psychonauts is the must have game of the last 7-8 years. It's a game design school. A level design school. And an art school. The game's only weakness are it's platform controls and camera to some degree. Also, Psychonauts has something that 99% games lack: Actually funny and effective humor.
How about buying Psychonauts? It's $20 well spent!
For all of you Xbox360 users, Note: That the Xbox Games Marketplace is coming out soon, and Psyconauts will be available. All the games cost 10$.
no thanks, if i play it it'll be on a console
Come on, it's worth it even with Mouse and Keyboard. Not perfect by Psychonauts is beyond that. Also, it's available for all last gen consoles, please go and buy it. Psychonauts IS one of those games that every true gamer HAS to play.
The game is slow and not really incredible at first but after you have traveled to a few brains, the game starts to shine as one of the best games ever created.
Also, check this great review of Psychonauts by Zero Punctuation's Yahtzee:
"Psychonauts is the must have game of the last 7-8 years. It's a game design school. A level design school. And an art school. The game's only weakness are it's platform controls and camera to some degree."
What a terrible job you have done of selling this game.....you point out that apart from the great artistic and design qualities, it lacks the fundamentals of any 3d platforming game.....sharp controls and a good camera.
I didn't say it's control and camera are bad. They are not as good as the rest of the game (Namely being groundbreaking and among best of all time) :)
Yep it is indeed one of the best games. Too bad I completed it not long ago :(
i will give it a try.i have always heard great things about the game so will download it once it becomes available.Also will try that game Undertow.seems like a very cool game.
