Wish you were here (WYWH)...

Played through Journey again the other night. This game is remarkable - a near perfect distillation of The Hero's Journey in game medium. Like its story, the controls are simple and intuitive (two buttons, two sticks), meaning that almost anyone can play and experience the wonder.

And don't get me started on the soundtrack, the score, an invisible force, moves the player through both trial and victory, like a tide, rising, crashing, and ultimately dissolving.

A must-play masterpiece. See more moments below...
