    brialinza's The Talos Principle (PC)

    [March 2, 2017 11:58:46 PM]
    Just finished section B, but it seems that I need some more sigils (things you get from puzzles) to progress further into section C. Anyway, I tried climbing the tower, and the sense of rebellion I felt was intense. I didn't know if it was right or wrong, but I wanted to get to the bottom of everything and understand it. I didn't get too far with a puzzle that happened to be up there, though, and eventually fell off the tower curious to see what would happen if I jumped from that far of a distance. To my dismay, I did not explode nor was there a cool animation.

    Anywho, I love this game even more for the philosophical ideas it presents in the computer terminal documents, and also the bits of memory that come from the thoughts of one girl. It's truly an amazing experience, I have to say, and this game is one of my top favorites because of that! Sure, not everyone may look for intelligent and meaningful thinking in games, but I for one am. Thus, I can say that this game has been worth playing.

    Played pretty late into the night. This game is addicting, that's for certain...

    Anywho, the computer is asking more interesting questions regarding consciousness and I seem to be answering in ways it sees as interesting. I have a very meta view of everything anyway, so the idea of consciousness is pretty basic to me. I love this game so much, I have to say. The more and more I play it, the more I get to think about, well, everything! The puzzles are very tricky sometimes, but it's nice to have that mental workout! I appreciate this game so far for what it's worth.

    Also, I do not know still whether or not I should follow the directions of the big voice in the sky. A terminal I went to brought up ideas of how I shouldn't trust it, or at least to take care with everything.

    Definitely a very interesting game by far. Leaves open quite a lot of mystery, and I found myself enjoying a lot of the mental workout with the puzzles. Already, what with the perspective of the game, I've been thinking in very existential terms about intelligence and what makes us different from robots. A lot of the text presented in the console systems is especially interesting to read and think over. I am still left thinking, though, where am I exactly? This game seems to be all one big simulation by the looks of it with glitches appearing here and there in the levels. It is rather obscure, and I feel as though I do not have the big picture of everything quite yet.

    I'll have to see where this game goes next. I'm excited! I don't know if I'll follow the godly voice's directions or not, but I guess whatever I decide to do this game will have a very interesting story to tell.
