Firewatch is an interesting game that I'd like not to talk much about to avoid spoilers, but the main jist of the game is that it's a mystery game that is basically an interactive narrative akin to Dear Esther. Although unlike Dear Esther this game has a bit more personality and plot.

I've played about an hour of this game and it's a breath of fresh air in terms of video game narratives. At 20 bucks (17 right now on Steam) I would highly recommend giving this one a try.

Also, if you don't care about spoilers, here's me playing the first hour of the game very poorly with a friend of mine.

Bought and finished it the day it came out (also worth mentioning, for those who have PS Plus it's on a bit of a discount on PSN, too). It's an absolutely gorgeous looking game. It was the first time I really used the Share feature on PS4 just so I could show off the beauty to friends.

I remember seeing the trailer to this at E3 I think, looked interesting. Don't know if I'll ever get it, but I can sense it being a possible PS+ game for some month down the line.

I finished this game yesterday and thought it was just okay.
The voice-acting, dialouge and art are all great but the story was really unsatisfying

Am I the only one who thought this was PS4 exclusive? I got on Steam the other day and saw it on there and freaked the hell out. Unfortunately, I had already spent money on other games on sale, so this one will have to wait, but this was one of my most anticipated last E3. I thought I'd have to wait until I got a PS4.

I thought it was PS4/PC exclusive so I was surprised to see One listed in the video in the OP myself.

EDIT: Oh wait, it seems the video title is just wrong lol

Game is on sale right now for PS Plus members if there is anyone who is interested but was waiting to take the plunge.

I beat this several months ago, and man what a game it was. Really stirred up several emotions for me. I have a couple funny stories from when I played if anyone is still interested, but man I kind of hope we see more games like this In the future.
