Psychonauts 2 | A great game I don’t love – DEBUG MODE

I’ve been looking forward to this game since it was announced waaaay back in 2015. That’s a long time to anticipate release and the anticipation was even stronger because the original game came out waaaay, waaay back in 2005. That game was a bit of a cult classic – big on personality and flavor but not so successful in terms of sales.

This video is a lot of me grappling with why this game didn’t land for me with quite the impact I expected. I think it’s quite good. But it’s one of those sequels that feels like it could have happened shortly after the original but instead there was a weirdly long gap. It reminds me of Incredibles 2 in that regard – although this game doesn’t have that movie’s problem of repeating plot points and thematic elements. It’s definitely its own original story.
