Favorite Video Game:
Life is Strange was an electrifying experience for me, featuring a wacky, genre-bending story, subdued, affecting characters, beautiful, minimalist visuals, and dynamic, adventure-style gameplay. Throw in the killer soundtrack and an easy platinum and it’s a perfect package!
Favorite Video Game Memory:
Playing through and beating the P.T. demo with friends is one of my most memorable moments with games. Focused solely on finding our way through the labyrinthine hallways of the game’s setting, we were totally caught off guard by the few jump scares the game has.
