Opening with a question, does anyone know what that song is in the new trailer?
OK, I have figured out 5 reasons why I'm excited about LBP and I would hope that at least one of them resonates with you and awakens that excitement that you've seen from everyone else for this game but which you haven't quite felt yourself.
1) The Gameplay Itself
Its an effortlessly simple idea. Plonk some obstacles between you and the finish and see what happens. Its pure and simple 2D platforming but not in the retro sense, moving in and out to other layers of the stage and the physics make LBP a 2D platformer without the stigma that's attatched to most modern 2D platformers.
Please Nadeo. I am on my knees and begging you, give me console Trackmania. This is the big one. If LBP itself blows chunks, if the sharing alone works it could open the door to loads more games based around user created content. Even if you don't want to play LBP, at least get excited for what it could mean for future games.
