I keep hearing people say this is almost like an ARG in video game form, but it also seems completely pointless.
Is there any point to it or is it just a bunch of obtuse puzzles that lead to nothing?
Like all the "story" bits I've seen just seem like completely throw away moments that have just been thrown in as mechanically as possible to stitch everything together.
I kind of want to buy it to find out why everyone is talking about it but it really just seems like a bunch of nothing. Like there is this really intricate and complex wrapping surrounding a hollow core.
I can appreciate a game with interesting puzzle for the sake of interesting puzzles, but it seems like Fez is trying to do something more with it and either fails completely at it because no one is talking about it or there just isn't any point to it at all and it is just solving puzzles to solve puzzles.
So answer my question.
