Default What games are you playing now?

Played Black Mirror for some 4-5 hours yesterday. It's been a LONG time since I played an adventure game for that long in one session.

I started this playthrough a long time ago - and I got stuck at one point, and I just left it.

Now, I'm the sort of person who can almost never remember the details of stories in games - simply because I've played literally thousands of them. They just don't stick - and I have to work at remembering even after only a few weeks after getting back to a savegame.

But, in this case - most everything is pretty clear, even after 6-12 months (I really don't remember when I began this playthrough).

There's something about this game that just feels perfect to my tastes in classic adventure games. It's just the right balance of NPC interaction, exploration and cerebral challenges. It's not a hard game - and I'd probably say it is on the easy side, but that suits me just fine.

The atmosphere is great and the story is really intriguing so far. I just reached Chapter 2 - and I look forward to getting back to it.

If you're into a really traditional point/click adventure with a good dose of gothic horror/mystery - I highly recommend this one. In terms of horror - it's not scary at all, but it does have a very foreboding atmosphere. But it's definitely more of a mystery and a nice slow burn experience.
