With the PlayStation 4 rapidly approaching to be revealed, developers have continued to show how they can influence people in a positive manner, which will hopefully continue as the industry heads into the next-generation.
According to a report from GamesIndustry on Friday, a gamer who played the game "Journey" sent out an email to the developer talking about how the game had a profound effect on her.
This is the kind of thing that tends to not get much attention from anti-gaming media and public figures.
The person wrote "Your game practically changed my life.
"It was the most fun I had with him since he'd been diagnosed. My father passed in the spring of 2012, only a few months after his diagnosis.
"Weeks after his death, I could finally return myself to play video games. I tried to play 'Journey,' and I could barely get past the title screen without breaking down into tears.
" In my own experience with 'Journey,' it was about him and his journey to the ultimate end, and I believe we encountered your game at the most perfect time. I want to thank you for the game that changed my life, the game who's beauty brings tears to my eyes.
"'Journey' is quite possibly the best game I've ever played. I continue to play it, always remembering the joy it brought and continues to bring. I'm Sophia, I'm 15, and your game changed my life for the better," she said.
