Deadly Premonition is THE greatest game ever made

Deadly Premonition released yesterday, although if you weren't reading Destructoid, you wouldn't have known. The budget horror game launched with no fanfare, and I had to actually get my copy from under the counter at my local GameStop, because nobody thought to put it on the store shelf. 

This, dear friends, is a crime.

Deadly Premonition is absolutely amazing, and to prove it, I present to you the greatest cutscene in videogame history. There is too much brilliance to list. The music, the contrived nature of the comedy, the facial expressions, the fact that the woman explains how a town clock works; just everything about it is perfect. Oh, and the sound on the video is not screwed up. The music actually is too loud, and that bit where the woman's voice is barely audible is part of the game. That's how fantastic this title is!

Our review will come as soon as it's been completed, but we kind of never want it to end.
