RetreatToLove wrote:Catherine presented us with thought-provoking, profound subject matter, elucidates us through the puzzle mechanic the phases adults must go through. The mechanics stands in close juxtaposition with the narrative. Its contemporary setting, contemporary conflicts feel familiar and intimate, resembling Yasojiro Ozu's Tokyo Story or Akira Kurosawa's Ikiru, life-affirming stories that stand the test of time.
Quest-based narrative just feels like incoherent rambling of a drunk,socialist bar attendant who randomly quotes Karl Marx for credibility, resembling garbage like comic books that seem to incorporate some political,scientific interests to look mature, although they are still seen as juvenile garbage without artistic merit.
Ultimately, quest-based stories have to disappear. They can not compete with the likes of Syberia or Catherine.
Do you even realize that you are, in fact, the drunk, socialist bar attendant here?
Now get me a scotch and soda.
