In all honesty, I more than enjoyed the story of What Remains of Edith Finch. It’s a refreshing, first-person tale, different from what I usually play. The visuals are amazing, and there’s always a puzzle or plot twist to keep you on your toes. It’s also a story within a story, and its creators carefully composed it this way in order to intrigue the player. In other words, it’s a game worth every minute of gameplay.
