Last night, I played Journey for the first time. (No spoilers below, don't worry! I encourage commenters not to be spoilish either!)

I think around the second stage, I met another person, and we played through the game all the way to the end. Despite having known the game was designed around random meetings with other people online, I always thought it'd just be kind of  hindrance or possibly annoying to have someone else mucking around in my lonely desert toilings.

'Davideogamer'! If you are out there somewhere, I hope you realize you made what would have been an awesome game experience into a FREAKING UNBELIEVABLE ONE.

To ANYONE who plays Journey on the PS3.. I hope that your first run through is met with another traveler, because you would not believe the sort of experience the whole thing evolves into. In many ways, it does this without you even realizing it. I could wax poetic about it for a paragraph but like many reviews I read about it on the net, I concur, the less said about the game to those who haven't played it, the better.

I mean the game would have been very cool alone but.. oh man.

Like I said in my last journal. It's a great year to be a gamer. Journey was amazing. That is all.

I knew nothing of the game when I bought it, and the whole time during my first play through I was trying to figure out if I was playing with a smart NPC or another player that connected to me. When the credits rolled around and it said "Player(s) you met along the way" I was like o____O
ThatGameCompany rocks. Their games are art.

I very much agree! Gorgeous environment, loved the soundtrack, and the multiplayer feature was very enjoyable. During my first playthrough, I met someone in the second stage who was also new to the game. Neither of us knew what to expect, but we powered through and finished the rest of the puzzles and chapters together. I accidentally fell back during the ending stage and took my time finishing it, and when I finally made it, I saw that my buddy had been waiting for me. I'm sorry that I skipped out on the credits and never found out who my companion was. So whoever you are, thank you so much! <3

Agh, I'm so jealous! I want to play that game soooooo badly, but I don't even have a PS3 yet! :iconlazycryplz:

I think by the time I get to it, I might get people who've played it already or a possible troll. >_<
But I can't say yet.

This sounds like a rather exciting game..... can't say I've ever heard about it before, but may have to do a bit of research (research, of course being googling "Journey video game" and clicking on the first thing I see).

You know, sometimes I wish that I could forget that I ever played the game or knew anything about it, just so that I can discover it again...

That sounds so amazing~ I don't even usually play video games (somehow? all my friends are gamers, though) and I really want to play it, haha
