Gorgeous game. I was in tears within the opening moments.

RE: What Game Are You 100% Sold On.
@marcel I agree entirely. I haven't been able to get it off of my mind since I saw the Microsoft conference, and the extra vid i've seen afterwards has only furthered that.
Comes across as a really sinister Monty Python, and that unsettles me. Wonderfully. :)
RE: What is your favorite game and why?
Scholar Of The First Sin.
Became an incredibly personal game for me, with a story which continues to fascinate and ignite me, dancing back and forth with very real world stuff which became a huge part of the experience.
Beyond that, the fascinating development process - spotlighting the sheer genius of Yui Tanimura. A man who not only came onboard to rescue a broken game and get it shipped on time, but as solo director created some of Souls very finest levels as the Three Crowns Trilogy DLC. Still refusing to let the game go Tanimura continued with Scholar, remixing enemy placements, story, continuity, as well as introducing the character of the Scholar himself.
I continue to be utterly smitten with it.
But never forgetting the magnificence of Demon's Souls.
Still a terrifying enigma, with stunning design work and a world which pushes needles into me whenever I play it.
I've been here since importing the US Special Edition all those many moons ago, and I still can't quite get the measure of Miyazaki's first Souls game.
