You've curiously clicked on this article because your wondering what my definition of a great game is and why I'm and you should be excited for Psychonauts 2, so let's get down to it, I've played like 80% of the game's out there, some I found enjoyable, others I found were quite boring to play, but I finished them just to see what they had to offer, here's a example, when I bought splinter cell blacklist, I had not known much about it, I had played the last one conviction

A great game for action/stealth gamers

I was looking forward to the sort of prologue that conviction offered, but instead it was I felt a little bland, as a opener for a game, my expectations were high, so after a level or two later I decided to switch games for the time being, a couple of weeks later I decided to give it a go, and I did quite enjoy my second play of the game, it picked up majorly after the first three levels, and the whole game was quite good, now what I'm saying is that you can't judge a game by its cover or its first levels, the same goes for the Cel Shaded Prince of Persia the controls felt awful because im use to running and the assassins creed game mechanics, I felt as it was a lazily made game and switched off the console, now I love the Prince of Persia series, my favorite being the two thrones, but the Cel Shaded PoP was great once you get to playing it, now enough about that, let's venture on to my definition of what a great game is

Some games stand of of the crowd like Psychonauts

Is it the graphics ? Is it the gameplay ? Is it the worlds and the characters we play as and are around us ? So many things define a great game, in some cases its all and in some only one of those make it a awesome game to play, the greatest games I've played are half-life, the legend of Zelda ocarina of time, dawn of war, and several other including Psychonauts the list would consume the entire page if I listed them all, I've recently bought thief and I wanted to see what the series had to offer, I've never played any of the thief series before so this was my first time, the concept seemed fun, the game is great in itself, but I found the world and the characters to be well in simple terms boring. The gameplay is great and the mechanics are good, its just the game world and story that lead me to fill empty unpone playing it

Games like BioShock Infinite are vibrant and like nothing I've ever seen before, not once was I bored with that game, the same goes for the likes of Metal Gear Rising, the combat, the characters, the script, were all executed properly, so this brings me to Psychonauts

Metal Gear Rising is definitely worth your money

Some games feature action packed openers but they're not always good, hey look at ocarina of time, one of the best games if not the best game out there, any gamer would agree if he or she played it, that nothing comes close to it, the opener on it was simple (example) not a action packed sword fight with explosions in the background, games like rayman 2 and sonic adventure, ratchet & clank, Psychonauts most will not play these titles today because they're all busy with the new games, talking openers I love Psychonauts opener
