What Remains of Edith Finch
I don't think I've ever played a game like this. The storytelling in What Remains of Edith Finch is among the best I have ever seen in video games. You play as Edith, a girl trying to learn how each member in her family tree was killed. You simply walk throughout your house investigating for secrets and knowledge. This is a very narrative driven game, where even the dialogue interacts with the environment.
Where the game shines is when you learn about each death in the family. You are transported to the moment they died, but each story is told through a completely unique perspective and uses completely different storytelling devices. If you ever wanted a perfect visual to show students the many different and creative ways to write, this is the game to play.
