Watch All Of Lost Odyssey, Without Actually Playing It

Last week, I wrote about the remarkable short stories of Lost Odyssey, an Xbox 360-exclusive role-playing game that played with prose in some delightful ways. This morning, a reader named Nabil showed me a video project he put together last year.

To quote Nabil: "I recorded the entirety of the game and then edited into episodes, so it can be enjoyed as a series. Anyone can understand the video, even those who are not familiar with the game or video games in general. It is not only a collection of cutscenes put one after the other. There are also gameplay sections, and a lot of editing work to make the whole thing flow like a real TV show or movie."

You can watch the first episode above, or the whole series as a playlist here. (Yep, the subtitles are in French, but the voices are in English.)

Of course, watching the game doesn't really compare to putting your hands on a controller, but if you can't get your hands on Lost Odyssey or you just want to experience the story, this seems like the perfect way to do it.

    This is one of the biggest, if not THE biggest games I regret not finishing. I managed to get to about the 3rd disc three times but never completed it. So for me this is as good as it gets now.

    Oh good! I got to the open sea part and then the game slipped away from me...

    Japanese voice track is better

      I agree with the voices themselves being better (Listening to Cooke in English hurt), but since the game's lip-synced for the English dub, the Japanese language track hurts the cinematic feel.

        That explains the odd lip synching.

    Lost Odyssey is without a doubt my top JRPG of this generation. Nuanced characters that grow beyond their archetypes, great writing, an excellent soundtrack and a cool battle system.

    What a legend, I loved the absolute stool out of this game.
