Not many people knew of Metro 2033 prior to its launch. It wasn’t well marketed or hyped despite its Xbox 360 (and PC) exclusivity status. And aside from a handful of trailers, it barely received any press attention. So how did I hear of it and why did I pick it up? To be frank, none of my reasons were for the game itself. I picked it up because:
- There was a EB Games/GameStop Power Trade promotion for it
- I was impressed by the tech
- I wanted to try an Eastern European game
Silly reasons, but more interesting than simply “because it looked cool” wouldn’t you agree?
