After the ten minute gameplay video from September 2010, I decided I was going to play the game and didn't need to see any more media coverage for it. It took a lot longer to come out than I'd hoped, but I managed to only watch/read a sentence or two from various stories and videos since then. Now that I've beaten the game, what'd I miss? Any good interviews, trailers that show something interesting that might've been cut, or whatever else that anyone recommends I go back and see? Or good spoiler stuff from the past two weeks?
I feel like I made the right choice in not consuming anything else about the game, and it was pretty amazing playing it with little idea of what I was getting into. I was kind of surprised by how gory it was, like I was really not expecting to gouge someone's chest cavity with a spinning hook, but wasn't a big deal once I got used to it. Otherwise it was all pleasant surprises -- I'd totally recommend that if you know you're going to play a game that's getting a lot of press to just ignore it until after you play it (though to be fair, I did check review scores before buying just to be sure it wasn't a technically broken mess or anything).
