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

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.
