    Default Bastion - fucking amazing game.

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/107100/

    If you haven't tried this game yet, play it. Bastion plays like a simple hack and slash sort of game, but the artistic & narrative technique used are both exceptionally unique, and very well done. The ambiance created and developed throughout the game is something that caught me entirely off guard.

    I'm just frustrated that it isn't an FPS, Strategy Game, or MMO - because I'd just die to be able to give these guys some free positive publicity via a sterling review.

    EDIT: Don't let the graphics put you off. The game looks and feels nothing like what your first impression of the screen shots might lead you to believe.

    I'll only try it if it has full loot pvp sandbox, the ability to build your own house and custom hats.

    Otherwise no care.

    Well, it doesn't quite have that.

    Yes, Bastion is fucking amazing, and if you haven't tried it yet then shame on you.

    It proves that games CAN be art

    Saw this a few days ago when I got another game. Screenshots and description (hack and slash) didn't really get me interested. Got this:

    Avadon: The Black Fortress. Old school RPG with lots of dialogue. Haven't got far into it but it looks decent. By the same guy as Geneforge and a bunch of others

    It was made by that one decent reviewer that used to work at gamespot a while back, the dude who reviewed World of Warcraft.

    Heh, it's not a bad game. Definitely a cool way to tell a story.


    Yummy.

    The gameplay videos reminded me of the old PSX game Brave Fencer Musashi, which was an awesome game. Guess I'll give it a shot.

    Demo is up on steam, so can always try that out first. I am checking this out.

    Edit: Just ran through the entire demo. Clever little game. The narrator's gravely voice certainly adds to the fun factor of the game. Melee and ranged attacks are a fun mix. Nice visuals with the art, like something from an old school ps1 rpg but are sharp and clean.

    I'll probably happily get this on a steam sale.

    This was my exact thought. Regardless of whether anyone enjoys the gameplay, the fact of the matter is that this game is art. Genuinely.

    It's not a matter of games "can be" art. They are art already. They express their art through interactivity. Bastion, while possibly an amazing game, is no more art than World of Warcraft.
