    The Last Guardian

    Bags of atmosphere and charm with stunning animation but gives me horrific motion sickness so sadly must be binned :(
    You haven't missed much. I just endured to the end because I thought I should and I probably should have just binned it. Agree with Roguey - most overrated game this gen.

    I've played worse games this gen, but the controls are a bag of dicks which made the whole thing frustrating.

    I really enjoyed it. But then I'm not a soulless monster.

    Be honest, it's because you're obsessed with defecating and there's a trophy for seeing Trico take a dump, isn't it?

    I was sold once I saw they'd accurately modelled his giant anus.

    Is Angry Goose a prequel to Angry Birds or summat?

    @Tomo Eh... I get the joke, but in all honesty the reasons I'm cool on both games are pretty different. Also, I'd put Arsehole Goose in the category of "disappointment", which is a long way up the spectrum from The Last Guardian as it ranks in as "shit".

    Arsehole Goose is a lovely idea. When the game actually works, it is charming and hilarious. The problem is that those moments are too few and far between. Between them, there's a lot of faffing around with the pixel-perfect precision sometimes needed to grab stuff, plus wrestling with really irritating controls. I stand by my view that it's a better game to watch than it is to play.

    Last Guardian, on the other hand, is just a bad idea badly executed. I know it has pedigree and it gets a lot of leeway based on that. But it's no Shadow of the Colossus. There's no clever commentary on the nature of gaming and no thematic depth. It's just "dawww, cute boy and cute animal" cheap emotional manipulation. The gaming equivalent of those mail-order animal figurines that everybody has some weird aunt obsessed with collecting. The fact that the controls are crap, the camera awful and the gameplay frustrating and dull (trying to stand on the exact right pixel to make the stupid fucking creature perform the action it blatantly needs to) just adds insult to injury.

    Arsehole Goose makes me a bit sad (though I'd still rate it a 6/10, so more good than bad), while Last Guardian makes me outright cross.
