Dreamfall: The longest Journey is a kickass game that everyone here should play. If you like Psychonauts and Beyond Good and Evil, I think you would like this game. I just finished it today. I was totally hooked on it. It's an 3rd person adventure game that has one of the most engrossing storylines I've ever seen in a game. And some of the best voice acting too. It's sort of slow paced, and the combat is kinda crappy, but seriously the game is incredibly enjoyable and I loved it.

I know some of you have x-box's. Darth, Halo, and Zelda I think. That's what I played it on. It's also on the PC but I think you sort of need a fancy comp to play it. Regardless if you guys see this game give it a chance. It won't dissapoint. Games like this Psychonauts, Beyond Good and Evil, and others are overlooked gems that kick so much bootay.

I was mulling over getting this game over Steam a while back... the demo refused to work on my computer so I opted for SiN instead. What's the combat system, etc like?

Looks like a fun game. I like the ability to change perspectives or choose your path (etc, etc). I think most games still have a main mission that your character has to do regardless of allegiances.

It would've been really weird and probably not fitting for Psychonauts (as well as bumping the rating to M) if it had allowed you to become evil. Solve their problems or have them drift further in madness, stop the brain-thieving or join to take over the world, dwelve into a troubled mind for answers or "convince" them to do your bidding...

I keep hearing that the demo wasn't too hot. I have a crappy computer though and it could never even dream of running the game unfortaunately. All the screen shots and videos that I see of the PC version are absolutely beautiful. The xbox version looks alright but not as good as the PC. But who cares, screw PC's.

There really is only one path to take on the game. There's no like alternative routes or different endings to get. You can change up what people say in conversations for different information and stuff at times but thats about it. You can't become evil or anything. You can be an ass during converstions if you want.

The storyline is left open for alot of interpation and theories, maybe that might intrest you too.

As it stands for this current game generation Psychonauts, Beyond Good and Evil, Dreamfall, Metal arms, and Halo 1/2, are my top games at the moment. This list might change if I think about it more. But these guys stand out at the moment.

Dreamfall is considerably better than Psychonauts.

I dunno about that. I like both games. But I would have to give the edge to Psychonauts because of the humor, art, and the fact that it's a platformer and I love me some platforms. But it is close.

I am resurrecting this thread because I thought Dreamfall was great too. The "combat system" was MEH though. It would have been fine to just leave out.

I'm sort of the same way about games. People's opinions vary alot, it's usually best to see for yourself if you like something or not.
