Games with great narration
I don't know why, but some gruff, gravely voice describing your character's inner thoughts can make even the most simplistic game seem epic. Games like that usually make me want to plant roots and play until the end, when I'm bleary-eyed, hungry, shaking with a full bladder, but weirdly satisfied. Probably my three fave examples are Nihilumbra (leave me alone, stupid void), Bastion and Thomas Was Alone. Anyone else know where I'm coming from, plus what are your favourites?
