Twin Peaks + Silent Hill + GTA3 = ?

My sister told me about this game called "Deadly Premonition." Although the cover of it looks like some gruesome scene out of Resident Evil or somesuch, it's apparently closer to an adventure-game type thing. A really surreal adventure-game type thing. This made me think about why there isn't more surrealism in video games. I guess people are only just starting to think of games as an artistic medium, and surrealism doesn't exactly lead to commercial success. I think it's pretty cool, or at least amusing.

The FBI agent you play also talks to his invisible friend named Zach.

How... bizarre. But entertaining.
