    If anyone’s interested in my personal recommendations, in no particular order…

    To the Moon is the biggest emotional ride you’ll ever receive from a videogame, and likely will ever experience until Kan Gao’s next game. This man is an artist at manipulating emotions, and this game embodies the absolute best of a mix between a good, emotional romance film and a Disney film. It may sound soppy, and to a degree it is, but it’s also mature, intelligent, funny, and clever. The story bases around helping people who are about to die achieve their dream by altering their memories, the characters you play are a part of an institution which perform this act. By the end, you’ll feel emotionally exhausted and you will both love and hate Kan Gao for it. He’s a magnificent bastard who weaves one hell of an engaging story.

    The Blackwell Bundle is a pretty great little series about a lady and her ghost private eye friend. The story really ramps up in the fourth installment and they’ve managed to keep it exciting and interesting over the course of a number of games. The stories of each game are fun in their own right, too, as you spend a sizeable chunk of each game discovering the truth of a person’s death and helping their ghost to rest in peace. It’s unusual, the sort of thing that could only ever come out of the indie scene, but in a good way.

    Gemini Rue also follows the ‘strange, but in a good way’ design ethic of indie as it’s a very strange little title that plays around with mystery, philosophy, and existential crises really well, and it pulls all this together in a brilliant little plot. I could tell you more, but it’s not knowing that makes this game. Suffice it to say, the intro into it will likely draw you in fairly fast — and the revelation at the end actually caught me off guard. This one is fantastic if you enjoy a game which is more questions than answers, at least right up until the end of the game, where they manage to tie it all up with aplomb.

    Botanicula is a surprisingly clever little thing, it’s more of a toy to a degree than an adventure because it doesn’t really toss brain-bending puzzles your way. But that absolutely does not make it a bad game! Oh no, not at all. I’ll admit that it has a slow buildup, but everyone who’s stuck with it will tell you that it’s truly worth it. It’s like experiencing life in an alternate dimension, and helping to save not the Universe (for once), but simply your own little home tree. But that tree is a home to such a variety of bizarre and genuinely alien life that you have to see it for yourself. You’d do yourself a disservice by not playing this, as it’ll play on your mind for days after. It’s unforgettable. And it has one of my favourite endings of any game.

    The others are varying levels of good to okay, but these are the ones I personally recommend the most.

    To reply in kind: What, you really think that selling point & click adventure games to an anti-intellectual collective who prefer Call of Duty is really going to work?
