InFAMOUS, the 2009 super-powered open-world action title, made huge waves when it released as a PlayStation 3 exclusive. The game came courtesy of Sucker Punch, the creators of Sly Cooper. It follows the adventures of Cole MacGrath as he either cleans up the streets of Empire City or terrorizes its citizens. MacGrath seems to be responsible for a massive blast in the center of the city, which starts him on a journey to clear his name and uncover the truth of what happened.
Does inFAMOUS deserve to be held up as one of the best games period?
Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.
