It’s funny how snap judgments can alter the course of your tastes for years, and actually end up causing you to deny yourself things you otherwise might enjoy. That’s pretty much all I have time to say today on the subject of the two Tomb Raider games I’m currently playing through, though I will bend the physical laws of time/space/reality long enough to add: I should have been playing these games since 1997.
When I related this revelation to one of my chums on AIM, he informed me that he recently had a similar experience with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Which was like, shit, there’s another series I’ve never touched that would very likely fill me with a warm, loving glow.
What other action/adventure games are out there that can be described as “exploring is fun, platforming is wicked fun, combat is stupid but easy”? And I’ll preempt your recommendation of Shadow of the Colossus by pointing out that I already own it, but its naked disc has never been anywhere near my PlayStation.
What the hell is the matter with me?
