Really, sales figures shouldn't bother me, and I shouldn't really be favouring one game over the other, but I have to admit — when I heard that Journey was the PSN's biggest selling game of 2012 so far, pushing Angry Birds into second place... I smiled.
Don't get me wrong, I like Angry Birds. I own and have played so much Angry Birds, and I don't resent its success at all. I do however, like to celebrate when an brilliant, traditionally niche, smart game like Journey has commercial success. I think that's a good thing, and an important point to note anytime people doubt the commercial potential of interesting, cool game ideas.
