Videogame Review: InFamous in Retrospect

InFamous came out in 2009 along side such giants as Batman Arkham Asylum, Uncharted 2, and Assassin’s Creed 2 and is a PS3 exclusive.  Its an easy game to overlook in a world where most people prefer the 360 over the PS3.  Stack that on top of a cross platform release of a game with a similar concept (open world super villain game) Prototype and it wouldn’t surprise me if you missed Infamous.

The strangest part for me about Infamous is how much I loved it when I played it and then how much I stopped caring about afterwards.  I started playing it again recently, going on an evil play through, and this game still blows me away which was entirely unexpected.  Many aspects of Infamous at release were ahead of its time and a lot of those aspects are still ahead of present games.  No start screen, it just loads, say what?  That’s c-ra-zy!
