Firewatch introduces you to the main character through a simple text adventure but within five minutes you become completely emotionally attached to him. Having such a close connection to the protagonist from the start makes all of your choices throughout more considered. The story is unveiled through walkie-talkie conversations with a fellow fire lookout, who you never actually meet during the game. To tell such a compelling story in this way is reason enough to make this list.
