Journey is beautiful to look at, listen to, and play. It’s peaceful, melancholic, joyous, and comforting.
Journey‘s multiplayer is the best. Make the trek with a stranger you might randomly encounter, or go it alone — either is fine. And seamless! And free of negativity since there’s no voice chat, just the sing-songy chirping of a button press, conveying… something… that someone else will, hopefully, interpret.
Journey gives one a sense that there’s something greater, either “out there” or “among us,” but it never aims to make one feel (completely) insignificant.
Journey is perfect, and I might have cried at the end.
