I loved the first Samorost game years ago but never clicked with the second one and didn't like Machinarium. Maybe I've just gone off point 'n' click adventure games though. I bought both DOTT and Grim Fandango remasters and haven't touched them. :(

25. What Remains of Edith Finch: a woman returns to her childhood home to explore the circumstances of the individual deaths of her family members. So far so Gone Home, and indeed in the opening minutes it does seem like this is going to be a walking simulator by the numbers. The exploration of the house is just a framing device though and when you get into each family member's room it kicks off a playable vignette that tells their story. These vignettes vary wildly in length, mechanics, mood and even graphical style but they're all engaging and excellent. You never know what each story will entail and the compellingly fanciful nature of them pulls you through the game in a way no other 'walking simulator' has ever managed. There was even a lovely little nod to the studio's previous game, An Unfinished Swan, that made me smile when I came across it. The way interaction is handled throughout makes it another example of something that just could not be done in any other medium which is always nice to see. The absolutely only criticism I think could be levelled at it is that £15 for a few hours is maybe a bit steep. Frankly I couldn't give a shit and thought it was worth every penny because but undoubtedly others will moan about that. Anyway, it's fucking awesome: go play it.

Some random thoughts:

Mad Max is one of the most underrated and is probably the best GTA clone i've ever played. Some parts are of absolute beauty and memorable, like the church in the middle of the desert and the airport.

Symphony of the night is not as good as most people say. It's too easy, and the second part really drags on. The Aria games and Order of Ecclesia are much better.

The first Witcher 3 expansion keeps the high standards of the main game. Absolutely sublime writing and characters and puts all the other AAA developers to shame.

A stunning and beautiful metroidvanian Dark Souls.

Not for casuls cause it's absolutely rock hard; especially that true boss. Actually I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't even kill him. I accidentally triggered the middle ending (there's 3) trying to wack the first of the two bosses so I could grab some magic for the last fight, like a dick. I kinda lost interest after an hour of the same guys so, y'know, I don't care. 39 hours and 90% completion biches.

It looks and sounds lovely and is genuinely quite funny, but I wasn't motivated to get all the assorted endings because they mostly meant playing the same thing over and over with just minor different decisions. Not least because the further in you get the less obvious what those different decisions actually are so you could end up spending time going through all the same content and not even getting a different ending because you missed something.

It's nice to have some games that have a definite start and end point, as a lot of the games I play seem to never have an end, or release more levels all the time.

Have you tried things like "Quiet, Please"?

That's a puzzle game (is there a better name for this genre? Things like Dizzy and stuff) that's only short.

I will have a look at it now.

I don't mind longer puzzle games, I currently have Day of the Tentacle on the go, but I find it difficult to remember where I was sometimes.
