I've always agreed with that spoiler rule. However, we're the minority.

I beat the game today. I’m not going to rehash what others have already said. I thought the dark environments, dim light and use of lighting sources to be superb. Probably the best example in a video game yet. Voice acting was top notch. I had no issues with any of the adult themes. That being said, I understand why the diverse reviews of this game exist - many young or conservative players probably don’t want themes of homosexuality, bisexuality, gender roles, or body type expectations. Game stories of this weight didn’t exist when I was younger and honestly, I don’t know how teenage CopperTom would have viewed such things. Does anyone know if the game was originally supposed to be more open world, like the early Seattle section with the map? After that, the game was very linear. I was expecting this to be on this generation’s Mount Rushmore of games, but I’m not quite sure it got there.


I agree with this. This game is very very good, but I think the pacing makes it drag a bit. Definitely belongs in the conversation for best game of the generation, but not in that top tier of all time games.

Also, I believe it was mentioned by Druckman in a podcast that they did consider making more of the game open world in the conceptual phase, but they were afraid the narrative structure would suffer.

Mark Lanegan's Daylight In The Nocturnal House would fit this game's soundtrack (at least the instrumental) to an f'ing T.
