Lost Odyssey is “better than loving a real person”

Lonely on Valentine’s Day? Singapore’s Xbox division understands and takes this opportunity to suggest games with strong single player elements for “you to become lost in for the duration of Valentine's Day.” This is a marketing list, but the tongue-in-cheek humor makes it notable. For instance, “Lost Odyssey should provide more than enough material for you to sequester yourself in a dark room for the entire week, let alone the day. You might even fall in love with the enthralling story and expansive landscapes, which is better than loving a real person, because the game won't squeeze the toothpaste from the middle of the tube.” (Well when it is explained that way….)

The best quote is about Portal, which the author claims is “the cheap date of the gaming industry, but boy, does it put out.” Even though this is a joke, I wonder what would happen if Microsoft’s North American Xbox division said something similar about Portal, Halo or any other Xbox 360 title.
