Is Limbo going to be another overrated game like Braid was?

To me, every game, no matter how crappy/trashy is art. But both Braid/LIMBO aims for a more contemporary style and look of 'art' at least according to the general public. Which is all about minimalism, 'more than meets the eye' story mechanic and an openly interpretable gameplay/story.

Braid wasn't bad it was just okay. The puzzles were ridiculously aggravating though (and the hour trophy was just a spit in the face). Limbo was 2 hours long, no story, slow gameplay, great atmosphere and was $15 , I actually picked Limbo over Shadow complex and wish I could get a refund.

I was playing the pc version and they had a 45 minute challenge for the whole game. I beat it in 42

The PS3 version has a speed run as well. I played it over and over until I could get under 45 minutes for that one trophy. I had to play it like 7 times, but I got it.

Plus, you could always go and look for the stars in Braid...

Braid is so much better than limbo.

Limbo is ridiculously short for the price of entry.
Currently under construction, opening August 1st. Feedback welcome.
