Why it's on the list: I heard through the grapevine just how insane this game's storytelling is. I was not disappointed.
How I played it: Xbox One
When I played it: January 2018
How far I got:
- Finished the main story and a couple of side missions (I might go back to mop up)
- 290 / 1360 Achievement Points
What I thought:
This game... it's really, really something. The gameplay itself is nothing particularly special, even if the shooting is pretty satisfying once you start dual-wielding shotguns. But the story, the cutscenes... man. It's something to see, it really is. It balances emotion with sheer ridiculous bombast in a way I've never seen before, in a game or a movie. Combine that with some genuinely engaging writing, interesting characters, and moments that left my jaw hanging, and this ends up being more than worth playing.
