I don't want to play Bastion, but I feel so guilty about it. Everything surrounding the gameplay seems novel and/or well-done, but there's just something about actually playing it that doesn't grab me. I played the XBLA trial a while ago and was kind of underwhelmed, if memory serves. I just find myself oddly disinterested in an isometric action game.
So, please somebody sell me on this game. It's been so well-regarded and it's only $5 on Steam today. Is the story itself interactive, or is it only an RPG insofar as you level skills and get loot? If you can make meaningful choices to affect the plot, I'd be much more interested in playing.
So yeah... help! (Or not! Not everybody has to like every game, obviously)
