Finally got around to finishing this title. It came out when I was in South Africa, and I wanted it so bad I could taste it. This is one of the rare times when the game actually lived up to that level of expectation.
It's been out for awhile, and everyone has dissected it much better than I could have anyways, but I'd just like to challenge the haters who don't believe that video games can possibly be art to give this one a shot. Just stupendously good, and not in a video-gamey way.
