What a waste of time

These games are garbage. They are incredibly boring, and I didn't even know the controls or purpose to 4 of them.

Journey - you walk around waiting for something to happen in the desert. It doesn't. Congratulations, you beat the game.

Flower - the only game with any semblance of gameplay. You play as flower pedals guided by the wind. More fun than it sounds, but the appeal dies out after 20 minutes or so.

Flow - what the lleh is this? I played this for a half hour and still had no idea what I was doing or how you win.

The three other games I forgot the names to - Boring, forgetable. Great for provoking suicidal ideations.

All in all, I would rather be impaled by a dull rusty pike than play this garbage ever again. The other reviews talk about how this is "relaxing" and a fresh concept in gaming. If you want to relax, sit outside on a sunny day, you will enjoy that 50 times more. As far as how fresh and creative these games are, I don't understand what is creative about it. Each game is literally one idea that is stretched out to make a game. Every level is the same, graphics are boring and uninspired. I gained no enjoyment from this game. If anything, my hatred and disdain prompted me to communicate this with anyone who may glance upon this heap of garbage.

This isn't a game disc, guys! There's no games on this disk, it's all commentary and behind the scenes; you have to DOWNLOAD the games from the store in order to play them! You still have to PAY in order to play the games! I am unable to download anything from online, so this ended up completely USELESS! AVOID AT ALL COSTS (unless you actually have one of these games, then you might find something nice about it)!

Really, really boring

If you're looking for a piece of interactive art, I guess "Journey" (and some of the other games included in this collection) would fit the bill. However, if you're looking for an actual game to play - something that has conflict, definition, and a sense of direction - then this collection is definitely not for you. I know it wasn't for me. I've played a lot of bad games in my time, but this is one of the very few games I would actually call boring; not bad, just BORING. The way people were hyping it as "ZOMG, game of teh decayde", I was expecting "Journey" to be some kind of unique, defining experience. Instead, I just wandered around a desert for thirty minutes or so until I finally decided to pack it in.
