I’ve talked to you good folks in the past about how interesting it can be to observe other people whilst they are in the process of playing a game. Most of the times I’ll take the role of a witness when a friend wants to experience a game that isn’t necessarily within their grasp – mostly due to platform-exclusive titles. The PlayStation 3 is probably the goldmine equivalent of exclusive titles and I have had a variety of piquant opportunities to observe the way other people play games like Journey, The Last Of Us and Heavy Rain. All three of these titles have options to play the game in their own respective ways and while I do prefer to play any given game myself and experience the feel of it all – there certainly is an undeniable and herbaceous aspect that makes for an experience on its own without having to fondle a controller.
Journey contains an explorable world with no one correct way to approach the end of any given area, The Last Of Us provides different ways of dealing with clicking internal jugular vein-hungry beasties and Heavy Rain has different choices, different scenarios and dialogue options. Each one of these games is noteworthy in its own ambrosial way when you watch someone else play, but this depends entirely on your own preferences. Not everyone will have the patience to observe someone crashing into every lamp post in Grand Theft Auto V.
If you are in the 0.42% of gamers out there with a sufficient patience to observe another person playing; which games make for aromatic popcorn games?
(P.S. I don’t see this overtaking the conventional way of watching movies, but it would be an interesting idea to pitch to your group of friends.)
