Before you say it, I know what your thinking, video games are nothing like books! Well sure most games aren’t, a lot have virtually no storyline and character’s that have almost zero personality or connection. But out in the world, there are some video games that if you like books, you will love.
1. Life Is Strange (Available on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and iPhone and Android phones)
Life Is Strange is an episodic video game that follows teenager Max Caulfield who suddenly discovers that she can rewind time. But that’s not all Max has to deal with, there’s something going down in Arcadia Bay and Max is having visions of a devastating future. Life Is Strange is centered around your decisions, how you decide effects the future and everyone involved.
I LOVE Life Is Strange, so much that I can’t even put it into words. No game has ever made me feel or love so much ever. You know that feeling you get when you are obsessed with the characters in your favourite books? Well, this is exactly the same, I care so much about Max and Chloe, it’s a little weird. Not to mention the story, it’s an amazing mystery that ties in perfectly with high school life. As well as the fact that no matter how many times you play it, you always find something new. Life Is Strange is a game designed to make you feel, love, and tear you into pieces while you make grueling decisions.
2. Oxenfree (Available on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, iPhone and Android phones)
Oxenfree is a supernatural horror mystery that follows a group of friends who go to Edwards Island for the yearly beach bash. But soon everything goes spookily wrong after the main character Alex accidentally lets something dangerous onto the island.
This a beautifully designed game that also relies heavily on your decisions. Not only is the game very spooky (don’t play with surround sound headphones on) but the mystery storyline is addicting. You also get a detailed look into the character’s and their relationships as you discover the mystery of the island. And I can assure you, you will be playing this game at least twice.
3. What Remains of Edith Finch (Available on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation)
What Remains of Edith Finch follows young Edith as she revisits her abandoned family home to discover the stories of her deceased family members.
This game is a ‘walking simulator’ game so the main focus is the story. It’s paired with beautiful graphics and hauntingly dark stories. It is very heavy and a little messed up at times but it creates an entire world around you and will leave you stunned with emotion at the end.
