Journey - Best PS3 Exclusive 2012
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment of America
Can we call this category a "no contest"? Journey is the first downloadable title on consoles to receive a perfect score from GameRevolution. Not even Limbo or Braid were able to do this. But even if there's disagreement over the perfect score, Journey easily wins the award over the other nominees for its brilliant art design, cooperative multiplayer, and poignant story told without a single word apart from the joyous cries of musical notes.
Jenova Chen's thatgamecompany, through flOw and flower, has always brought innovative, minimalist, and peaceful titles to the indie space, showing that Zen-like serenity has a place in gaming and is a quality that most developers miss or ignore due to the easily marketable popularity of violent murder simulators. Journey dares to be different, and the very first time you glide down the silky, sunlit dunes of sand, it makes its case. With monumentally quiet power.
