** Fans of the Perry-led era vs. fans of the Steve-Augeri/Arnel-Pineda eras. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement And that's all we'll say on that.]]

* BestLevelEver: The Apotheosis stage and the level with the sandsurfing are the most likely to be brought up in conversation on forums, for nothing but the sheer levels of SceneryPorn and {{HSQ}} they contain.

to:

* BestLevelEver: SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Yes, it's good enough to stand on the same page as the band Journey. It plays on a recurring motif that can be heard in its simplest form in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLfj3pAlrs4 Nascence]]", the first song, and at its most awe-inspiring in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypNgvc6c6Cc Apotheosis]]", the very last song.
** While all the music you hear throughout is amazing, the ending credits song "I Was Born For This" just tops them all. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_wkJ377LzU You can listen to it here]].
** Now has the honour of being the very first videogame soundtrack ''ever'' [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/12/06/journeys-soundtrack-nominated-for-a-grammy to be nominated for a Grammy Award]]! And not just some small obscure award either, [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome it got nominated for Best Score]], placing Austin Wintory amongst heavyweights like JohnWilliams, HansZimmer, HowardShore and [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor]]. Not to mention that to be recognized alongside the former [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments was also a lifelong dream of Wintory's]].

* FaceOfTheBand: Steve Perry, who was hired because the record company felt that Gregg Rolie wasn't distinctive enough and the band needed a clear front-man. Even after Perry left the band, he is still the member who is most associated with the band. Journey's new lead singer Arnel Pineda has had some small success becoming this ''outside'' of the US, but in the States, where most Journey fans think the band broke up after Steve Perry left, he's pretty much a complete unknown. And a majority of people in the US who have heard of him only did so because there was a video on YouTube about how Journey "got back together" with the introduction of the new singer, and now are "in exile" playing in the foreign market now that their fame in the US has "diminished."

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)", a song that is much darker than the band's more famous output, and awesome because of it.

* NeverLiveItDown: Although Jonathan Cain was reportedly upset when ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' tore into the much-derided [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LatorN4P9aA "Separate Ways"]] video (a staple of the early years of Creator/{{MTV}}), he has since admitted to being embarrassed by it.

* NarmCharm: "Don't Stop Believin'" is a little ''too'' feel-good for its own good, but almost everyone doesn't care anyway.

* StopHelpingMe: An interesting example, in that it's not only perpetrated by other players but is almost certainly done without malice: the second chapter features a bridge which, if crossed without repairing it completely, will reward a trophy. Unfortunately some nice person will often see you 'struggling' and take pity on you by fixing the bridge section you obviously didn't see, undermining the whole endeavour.
** Of course, you can go offline and get the achievement by yourself if other players continue to rebuild the bridge.
** Some more experienced players, upon observing they've been paired with a less experienced player, can be a little forceful, not giving the new player a chance to be the one to "sing" to release flags, flying carpets and reveal glyphs, rushing straight to the "solutions" to the puzzles and the locations of items rather than taking the back seat and allowing the newer player to work at their own pace.
