Journey came out some time ago, to great acclaim, but it was Playstation 3 exclusive, and I had an X-Box. It's now been released for Playstation 4, and I have one of those, so I've finally had a chance to try it.

You start as a cloaked figure in a desert. On the horizon you can see a mountain with a light. And so, with bare instruction and no understanding, you start toward it.
Journey is a combination of evocative music and visual beauty and a story stripped of any language that you understand. It is very short, but I think is the sort of precious jewel of a game that you keep by for the grey days, when you want to be uplifted.
