Wow it took only 7? years to finally see people hating on Journey? lmao

I believe Journey is the single most overrated game of all time, and it's not even that it's bad, it's good for what it is - a small and short and simple indie format game where you go from point A to point B for 3 hours and mostly just walk. But some people claiming that it's the best game of the decade, and I have even seen the best game they ever played? Complete utter nonsense. The only explanation I can come up with is that Journey was released at the peak time of Call of Duty and some people's senses had been atrophied. 

It obviously just comes down to preference. 

I'd nominate Bioshock as being the most overrated. Possibly GTA IV. 

Journey is one of my favourites. The soundtrack is absolutely incredible and was perfectly synced with the beautiful visuals. The movements were satisfying and I liked how it was open to interpretation. Its just a very unique game. 

Its only something I would play through once or twice though, similarly to how you can watch a movie and really enjoy it, but you know you will never watch it again. Its kind of a once off experience. 

You can't possibly think journey is better than gta4 or bioshock, thats just crazy. Those games are much more open, have much better mechanics, varied gameplay, s much better story, not to mention longevity, voice acting, writing, etc all you do in journey is walk forward for 2 hours and thats it. 

Journey can't be compared to big AAA games, in no way shape or form. Journey is at best a 10dollar indie game, even tough I'd never pay that much for it.

I played it years ago in the PS3, finished it but didn't like it tbh.



Liked it and it's pretty chill but not immensely fun.

I played through it about 20 times. It's a different experience with different people. In one of my play throughs I met up with someone also interested in exploring behind the scenes. We managed to find a way to get out of the level in the caves scene by boosting each other with the maxed out scarves. We explored there in the dark for nearly an hour, magical experience. Also with the maximum scarf boost you can speed run entire sections while boosting each other. No need to build the bridge or activate the platforms in the large tower. At the end you can communicate by drawing things in the sand, but you already sort of developed a language by pinging during the game.

I met a lot of awesome people from all over the world while playing Journey, it was a great experience. And that soundtrack is so powerful, great stuff, especially while skiing downhill and flying up at the end. Plus so touching when you both struggle to get one more step forward, pings slowly dying out while struggling in the snow.

Man, I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen someone mention Journey since like... 2014?

It’s a pretty looking game I guess... lol.

Sony just gave it away for free because of the coronavirus.

Well Sony is giving it for free so slinging some dirt on it was unavoidable.

I personally feel it is overrated. Probably one of the most overrated games.
I never got into it and never beat it. No matter how much I tried to like it.



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

It is funny that so many people think it is overrated because they don't like it... If that was a criterea any game over 80 should be called overrated because there will be plenty of people that don't like the game.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

I enjoyed the 1 hour of gameplay it gave me but it really wasn't anything special.

Highly overrated.
