My Psychonauts rant
I know the game has been out for awhile, but I'm new to this place and really need to vent all my love for this incredible game. Bear with me because I have all of this stuff built up since none of my friends really like the game. Sooo..., I like Psychonauts because:

It has some of the most genuinely funny writing in a videogame

The characters are human and easy to relate to

BRILLIANT level design and concept

In a world full of bland FPS and cheesy RPG's, Psychonauts is keeping the great genre of platforming alive

Some of the greatest boss battles in a game

Brilliant mix of stellar collecting, puzzle solving and exploration

Gives me that "kid in a candy store" feeling that can't be beat. I simply love this game and can't talk about it enough. That's been my rant for today. Time to go lay down and catch a breather.

I loved the giant meat guy, might of been obvious and a bit formulatic, but still very fun and unique.

Yep, since the dawn of time bosses have been obvious and formulaic (remember the blinking-red-light-bulb-on-head-asaurus rex?) but the bosses in this game were soooo unique, I mean really, bullfights, den-mothers, butchers, critics, and censors? What's not to love!?

I'll tell you what's not to love.

The tunnle of [slash]doom[/slash] love.

And Oly, that pumpkin's obession with that damn rabbit almost killed my sanity A LOT!

Must agree with Darth at this point.
