Back of box quote

#1 Edited by Droop (1916 posts) -

So I bought the Limbo Special Edition, and look what is on the back of the box!

Is this the first Giant Bomb quote to make it to a retail product?

No, it isn't.

It's 10:30 pm and im sitting in my dark warm room after a long tiring day. Then I read this. And now I'm in the mood to put on my headphones and go through the Limbo journey again in its deafening silence.

Limbo is kinda okay I guess, I'm not done with it yet. Nuts and Bolts, now there's a masterpiece.

I wander what the worst box quote ever printed on a box was.

probably the bullshit in the OP.

I'm guessing it's a Shoemaker quote.

The one right there in the OP is pretty bad and wrong. Jeff is the only one in the office who got LIMBO right

Limbo's okay, i guess. But i always say that: Limbo works better in a cinematic way, than in a game way.

I have never played Limbo, but gauging popular opinion... time has not favored Limbo.

"Limbo is as close to perfect at what it does as a game to get"

The fuck does that even mean? Something about the wording in that makes no sense to me.

Never it into limbo, it had a nice art style, but I guess I got down right bored, bu I've never been a huge puzzle game fan to begin with.

Wait.. why is there a box for Limbo?

It means to say that Limbo comes closer to achieving its set ambitions than most games.

Time? Meaning less than 2 years? If that's the 'time' it takes for games hard to go back to then the games industry is fucked. I guess the original Mario Bros hasn't been favoured by time either?

It was all about the atmosphere with that game. A 2D sidescrolling platformer never really did that as well before Limbo came out which probably blew people away without them noticing why exactly. The gameplay is fairly simple but in context it's really effective with high potential for emotional resonance.

@RazielCuts: I meant how popular opinion has turned against it. But okay, insinuate I'm a turd.

Ha, probably still true about Nuts & Bolts being the best 360 exclusive. Maybe Shadow Complex.

@Cloudenvy: Is that technically a quote or just an award? I mean I'm sure someone did actually say it at some point, but still... Feels iffy. Also fuck yeah Nuts and Bolts!

At least it isn't as bad as IGN's quote for Mass Effect 3.

They said it was a masterpiece? Really? I knew Brad loved that game but man. Mannn...
