Basically, have you ever played a video game that made you angry, sad, or even cry? Emotional. Could be with a particular ending to a game that frustrated you, or a plot point that happens that actually makes you sad, or even have a few tears.etc.
Papo & Yo does both. Its story toys with your full range of emotions: happiness, anger, pain, fear, sadness. It was the first and only game ever to make me tear up.
Everybody gives a lot of credit to Journey for being a beautiful, emotional game, but I found its story to be too nebulous to really connect with. While it is visually superior, it doesn't hold a candle to it the concrete emotional story of Papo & Yo.
