I have to say it bothers me the two games I'm looking forward to most this year are the Life is Strange Prequel and the Star Wars Battlefront sequel. This is really not a year with much in the way of pickings after the monumental failure of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. I admit, I think Life is Strange is a game which shows how Telltale SHOULD do their games but have so far manifestly failed to do so. It's a "one and done" narrative so you have the option of saving lives or failing to save lives so the narrative actually can look very different with a genuinely different ending at the end. The fact you can reverse time and change your choices also makes save scumming into part of the narrative itself. I'm a huge Twin Peaks fan so it and Deadly Premonition also get a lot of passes on their flaws. Even if I feel a trifle strange being a 37 year old man playing a time traveling teenage girl. But I'm actually invested in the upcoming sequel in a "Fire Walk With Me" sort of way.
