Too responsive controls aside, Old Man’s Journey is a beautiful, affecting experience from start to finish that rewards players that are willing to take their time and admire each scene in full before forging ahead. While it’s a short trip—even carefully-paced players will likely finish it within a few hours—learning the entire story and purpose of the journey provides insight and light on subsequent playthroughs, which inevitably feel slightly different.
The result is a game that reminds me of a picture postcard, or maybe a whimsical poem written by a friend on a long journey. Old Man’s Journey is sweet, meandering and undemanding, a pleasant while-away that's full of feeling, at least for as long as the journey lasts.
Simplicity is the biggest strength of Old Man’s Journey. It doesn’t require you to be a genius or a master gamer, but to have a penchant for something more oft-kilter. That it manages to be a satisfying experience all without saying a single word is remarkable and definitely worth a look.
