What Remains of Edith Finch Review
What Remains of Edith Finch is a game that succeeds in recreating the childhood joy of reading a book and being utterly transported into its pages, only to reach the end and realize it’s not real. It goes without saying that this game sets a new benchmark for storytelling, and the imaginative ways in which it's done, all the while dealing with death in a delicate and poignant way. As Edith, players travel back to the Finch family home in Washington to explore her ancestral history after recent family events drive her to learn more about herself and the Finches. Edith explores the house through regular doors and secret passageways, as well as the individual rooms of deceased family members who have been preserved like frozen moments in time. Players experience varied stories related to particular family members, with thematic and gameplay elements that change from story to story. This is one of the best story driven walking simulators out there! The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Firewatch, Gone Home, every one of those were superb, but this had something even more. It's an exceptionally well-told story, an anthology of remembrances experienced through the eyes of each family member at the precipice of their demise.
