Life is Strange
Format Xbox 360 | Release 2015 This is another title that focuses on character. The relationship between protagonist Max and her best friend Chloe is a touching and heartfelt one. The whole idea that Max has the ability to manipulate time doesn’t seem all that important in the grand scheme of things. The game has some cheesy dialogue at times but it makes up for it by being so well-observed. All your decisions have an emotional weight, right up to the final moments where you’re forced to make a tough choice. This wouldn’t be so poignant if the developers hadn’t already done the narrative legwork.
