Oh. I played the PC demo, which was the first few minutes of the actual game. It ended when you fix the hovercraft and beat the Domz with it.

Yeah that would leave a better impression I think.

Wasn't the oddworld series pretty successful? The first two games must have been rather well received to warrant so many sequels.

You hadn't played the entire game? You seriously have far less than a fragment of information. And I'm personally jealous of you if you end up playing the full game, it's a wonderful experience.

Miscommunication. I've played the game from start to finish at least four times. (Gamecube version)

Yes, I wish I had one of those magic pens in Men in Black, so I could forget about the game, then enjoy it again as the first time. But wait, wouldn't I end up exactly in the same state of mind?

What does not work is hibrids of every kind of game, those flawed and amazing games that are greater-than-great and immersive as no other. Anachronox, Gothic, Outcast, Omikron: The Nomad Soul, or the last aditions which were much more successful: Fahrenheit and Dreamfall.

Please accept Advent Rising into the list. Just for the sake of it.
