I've played a bunch of narrative-driven games over the past few years (Oxenfree, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Fran Bow, to name a few) and while several of these games resonated deeply with me, I think What Remains of Edith Finch just might be my favorite one of them all.

It's an undeniably gorgeous game, telling the stories of the Finch family in beautifully-crafted, poetic vignettes that incorporate surprising game mechanics in sometimes-surreal, sometimes-too real backdrops.

It's a short game -- just about two hours to complete all of the stories -- but it feels like the perfect length.

Everyone should play What Remains of Edith Finch, even if you're not interested in "walking simulators" -- just as long as you're remotely interested in playing a game with emotional investment attached.
