The Last Guardian came out today… I didn’t even realise. One of my most anticipated games that I wouldn’t get to play this year and I didn’t even know it was out, if that doesn’t tell you the state of the game I don’t know what will.
It’s not that the game is bad, far from it. It’s a breath of fresh air in this current gaming climate and is a great game at times. The problem is that this is Team god damn Ico, makers of my personal critically greatest game ever created and this game which has been in development for around 10 years has come out to be… good. Not amazing, not great, not genre defining, just good. It’s a shame as it seems to be the trend with games coming out recently.
However I am not too sad. My girlfriend gave me a christmas present early, an original PS2 copy of Shadow of the Colossus, so I think I shall dry my tears by playing this incredible game. Maybe it will help ease the pain a little. That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
