Touching, sad, and brilliant; a story worth forgiving the limited interactivity to experience.

Though it only took me just under two hours to complete, the second the credits stopped rolling I immediately restarted What Remains of Edith Finch. Each of the vignettes is so distinct and surprising that I didn't have enough time to absorb and dissect what I had just played before being whisked away to the next one. But after fully piecing together the threads of the family and sifting through the allegories of their final moments, I was left with a beautiful, heartbreaking mosaic that exudes life, even when mired in death.

An elegiac, memorable and affecting tale of the misfortunes suffered by the members of a deeply eccentric family.

A compelling story well told, and although it's still not very interactive the variety and artfulness of the presentation feels like something only a video game could do.

The diversity in the Finches' final moments means you've always got another cool story just around the corner, and Edith's personal journey is also interesting

Giant Sparrow's follow-up to The Unfinished Swan is a beautifully melancholy collection of parables.

Even as I rolled my eyes at the chilchéd final moments, as the credits rolled, I found myself remembering the dark, cluttered halls of the Finch house, and the way the game denied me closure on every mystery they may contain.

By the end of What Remains of Edith Finch, I felt close to the Finch family. I felt close in a way that only games could articulate with their unique interactive language. I was a kid on a swing, trying to get as high as he can. I was a baby in a bathtub. I was a curious, hungry kid. What Remains of Edith Finch doesn't just tell you about the tragic history of the Finch family, it allows you to embody it.
