The Game Hoard (Jun 24, 2019)
The mystery behind the Finch family curse is reason enough to want to explore the absurd abandoned family home that already has a strong identity from how it was built and what was left behind, but when What Remains of Edith Finch begins to tell you the stories of Edith’s unfortunate relatives, it then evolves from a well-crafted bit of narrative exploration into a marvelous tale that features imaginative and enjoyable flights of fancy. History is conveyed with such creative artistry to it that each tale enraptures with its new but accessible form of play and its commitment to its style and message. The shorter and simpler Finch histories you find would already be a step above reading simple notes, but when paired with some of the top quality creations created for certain members, its hard not to crave more from a game that already takes the design of walking simulators and injects them with energy and interactivity without sacrificing atmospheric detail or an emotional narrative.

The exceptional story and inventive gameplay design makes Giant Sparrow's title a memorable trailblazer for walking sims. It sets a new bar for what the genre is capable of in its interactivity, and all narrative adventure games that arrive after Edith Finch may now have to consider challenging players with more than diary reading and tape playing. It's said that, in their infancy, each new medium copies the one it's following. In some ways, games are the successor to movies and we've seen plenty of cinematic games that crib the format of feature films. To take nothing away from such games, What Remains of Edith Finch is a shining example of what video games do uniquely well.
