What Remains of Edith Finch Game of the Year

AAA games may have had a banner year, but there was a lot to love in the indie scene as well. Developer Giant Sparrow’s newest title, , was the best of the bunch. The dev's first title since 2012’s incredible debut , the title tells a terrific tale about a terrifically unlucky family. Visiting her childhood home, Edith wanders through one of the most fully-realised spaces we’ve ever seen in a game. During this exploration, we are treated to a collection of exceptional vignettes that detail the demises of the other members of Edith’s family as Edith works to complete a family tree and scrapbook for her as-of-yet unborn child. It’s the digital equivalent of a collection of short stories, and it’s phenomenal. The writing in the broadest sense is melancholic and quite bleak, but the game isn’t devoid of levity and brighter moments.
