What Remains of Edith Finch is the best representation of what a video game can be. It doesn’t need super in-depth gameplay mechanics, lifelike worlds filled with hundreds of hours of quests and thousands of NPCs to talk to. All a game needs are great mechanics that are built around the story to help make it feel more intimate.

Despite being left wanting a bit more, What Remains of Edith Finch is a one of those examples of truly interactive storytelling. In gaming, there are many examples of titles that are lauded for their narrative that don’t quite hold up when compared to genre contemporaries in other mediums. There have been and will certainly be many more diatribes that explore this phenomenon.

In Edith Finch, death is a certainty and life is the surprise. Its stories are enchanting, despite their unhappy ends. I was sad I never had the chance to know the Finches while they were alive, but thankful for the opportunity, however brief, to learn a bit about them. The final farewell left me crying, but What Remains of Edith Finch is, without doubt, love.

Andre familier har nogle mærkelige traditioner. Hvad der kan virke normalt for mig, kan se mærkeligt ud, når man ser det på afstand. Når min familie kørte rundt med campingvognen i Europa, råbte alle medlemmer i bilen: "uhhhhhhhh MØRKE" hver gang vi...

Pomysłów na pojedyncze dania nie brakło, ale każde z nich trzeba smakować z osobna, bo razem nie łączą się w spójną ucztę. Zarówno w aspekcie rozgrywki, jak i fabuły, która zdaje się być jedynie pretekstem do snucia bardzo pomysłowych, ale mimo...
