The end goal of any video game might be to make it to the final screen, but for the game Journey, it's also about the time you spend getting there: stunning graphics, innovative cooperative gameplay and a Grammy-nominated score elevate Journey to a new level of player experience. Players take on the persona of a single robed figure, moving through a sandy desert and ruined city on their way to the top of a mountain. Along the way, players encounter mysterious characters—some helpful, and some harmful--and experience temporary collaborations with other people playing the game. 

In the end, however, it's up to the robed figure to make it to the top of the mountain alone.
