The Binding of Isaac review
“The Binding of Isaac is a cartoony dungeon crawl where the player pilots a small child through the labyrinth which is his mom’s basement. Isaac ran into the basement because his mother is convinced that she has been commanded by a higher power to sacrifice her son.” This was the description (or close to it) given to me by my older brother as he tried to convince me to play Isaac for the first time. I was resistant, but with good reason. My older brother was (and still is) known to have strange taste in general, and those preferences really seemed to go off the rails when it came to music, movies, and games. That, and the fact that defeating Freudian enemies by crying seemed like something I could accomplish on my own in my room.
