Video Proof: Deadly Premonition Is A Great Game


Posted April 22, 2010 - By Stephen Johnson

At the risk of angering Roger Ebert, survival horror game Deadly Premonition is the greatest work of Art ever created in human history.

DP has terrible controls, last-gen graphics, and glitches galore. But I'm convinced that the crapped-out elements of the game actually make it a better experience. It's a game about interactions between opposites, and combining DP's awesome, wacked out writing with its clunky gameplay is one of a thousand opposite pairs in the game, including the main character himself. Agent York, whose alternate personality Zach functions as York's own, internal opposite.

Deadly Premonition is self-aware, and constantly, obliquely referencing itself. Like In the video below, Agent York is talking to himself in his car. He seems to be discussing the joy you can find in ancient VHS cult movies, movies that are both "bad" and amazingly joyful, but he's actually taking about Deadly Premonition itself. Check it out:

Is this genius, or am I insane? Or both??
