How to steal from Elder Scrolls and not get away with it photo
How to steal from Elder Scrolls and not get away with it
by Allistair Pinsof

Limbo of the Lost is the stuff nightmares are made of (see above) and the stuff of lawsuits, as well.

It's a perfect storm of all things terrible that makes a game in the adventure genre -- a genre that even at its worst can only be subpar -- so vapid, bizarre, and poorly executed that it somehow transcends the ridiculous and becomes a surreal, captivating experience.

And if you get a distinct Elder Scrolls or World of Warcraft vibe, or suddenly feel nostalgic for Beetlejuice, it likely has to do with Limbo of the Lost stealing art from all those things. Having the ghost of better games linger over one of the most terrible games of all time is what makes Limbo of the Lost an oddity and a trash classic.
