Words can’t even begin to describe my excitement for the upcoming collaboration between cult video game master Tim Schaefer and, well, Cookie Monster. Even though Once Upon a Monster is probably going to be aimed squarely at a demographic much younger than me, the combination of Schaefer’s wit and penchant for unique and innovative games and the nostalgic love for Sesame Street is enough to make me want to play this game. Heck, I’m way more excited for Once Upon a Monster than I am for any of the really big titles coming out, like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. I might even put Batman: Arkham City second to this. That’s just how much I love Schaefer’s games and the creative genius that pours out of the Jim Henson Company. Maybe I’ll be eating my words when the game is released, but right now, I’m totally sold.
Once Upon a Monster comes out October 11, 2011.
