This is where videogame reviews have got to:

"I was looking for a moment of revelation akin to what Rilke wrote: "Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love." Sadly, that moment never comes.
The art that I've come to respect is messy and opaque. It's the world of The Wire, the paintings of Francis Bacon, the shrill dirtiness of The Clash. I like mess and Journey is too clean for my liking. I want self-doubt, confusion, loss, disgust, failure - then I want triumph. That's a journey more to my liking and my reality."
