From What I Can Tell
From what I can tell (not having played the game), this is simply just a pile of crap prototype selling for a wild price that people seem to be buying due to the pure fact that they think it's "art" because it's short and simple. Maybe they only like it because they think they can see through it, know the real meaning to it and that anyone that dislikes the game is a "brain-dead fool that doesn't understand art". Am I right? I think I am.

"It's not a game, it's an experience." Really? Keep on telling yourself that because from what I can tell it's really not, so stop thinking you're some sort of master race that thinks a game's good because it's short and crap.

Call me heartless or whatever you want to call me, because if something else triggered in my mind when I first heard of this game, I may have bought it and really enjoyed it. But you know what? I didn't. It's as simple as that.

I bet I could make a better game idea in seconds. You know what? I will.
< that's a cage. You play as a guy that's in it. You finally get out one day. You venture outside, you do some other meaningless crap and in the middle of that find photos of your family. The game ends. You're free.

And there you have it, a 59 year old male's opinion on this piece of muck and the players that think they have some sort of advanced mind set and a high IQ because they "understand" it.

tl;dr: Short, meaningless and stupid does not mean art. It means you're getting money taken from you. 'Ya done goofed.

This cannot be real. This has to be some bunch of students in an art college somewhere, trying to get a reaction for their "project". Please do not respond.

I actually passed this on to a heap of college psych students.

They're curious why a 59 year old, with a games list matching a mid 20's age group and a tendency to play for very short periods in each (hello), would stoop to such a silly yet vehement attack on a product he's never played.

If it is arts students (really?!) sorta think lecturer should be marking a little lower on this assignment because it lacks the believability one might expect from half decent students.

Dave?

PS: I am going to put my money on a certain forum individual who appears to run 2 accounts.

From what I can tell (not having read the review), this is simply somebody shouting controversial opinions based mainly in his perception of defenders of the game and not the game itself.

I bet I could make a better thread idea in seconds. You know what? I will.
The thread envolves the creator of said thread playing through a video game, and then giving his opinions on the game itself, unrelated to his thoughts on the gaming community.

tl;dr: "Too long", unqualified and hostile does not mean an opinion anybody will take seriously.

I liked it. It wasn't really a game, and I wouldn't call it art... It's just a different experiance... it's interesting to say the least, contemplating over the games meaning as you play it.
