Ok, is it just me or does Bastion seem to be way too high in the GB reviewers' list of top 10 games of the year? I know Greg Kasavin is a personal friend & former colleague to most of the GB crew, and I am well aware he worked his way into the industry from being a game blogger, but still.. I just don't think its necessary to slather so much praise on a mediocre digital-only release just because you want to see your friend succeed in the industry.
I found the narration to be the best part of the game. The gameplay and environment, while fun, was just far too repetitive to consider it within my top ten, let alone in the top 5 like many of the GB crew have done.
