The Last Guardian: New Gameplay Details, 2016 Release Confirmed

New gameplay details have emerged for The Last Guardian, Sony’s hotly anticipated action-adventure game. Issue 294 of Edge Magazine has early impressions and an interview with designer Fumito Ueda.

If the past few decades’ worth of science fiction movies have taught us anything, it’s that aliens rarely come in peace. They might appear in the form of a massive armada or shape-shifting monsters, but their goal is always the same — destroy humanity and take over the world.

This list takes a look at how close some of cinema’s most famous aliens came to ultimate victory, and how much of humanity was displaced along the way.
