    What Remains of Edith Finch has been on my radar for some time. Halloween seems a good time for it.

      Me, too! Looks like I'll be hitting Microsoft Rewards for some free Xbox gift cards.

      As I get older, I find I tend to be drawn more to these story based games. I just finished Gone Home and Layers of Fear. Both very excellent narratives and gameplay that doesn't have me tearing my hair out and throwing my controller in disgust. :)

        Yeah, my non-gaming wife has enjoyed Thimbleweed Park and Sexy Brutale with me. Low-key / can't die type of games are great for us to do together.

          I just played 'The Park', which was very short (about 2 and a half hours if you take your time and read everything), but great atmosphere and mythology. Story didn't really pay off, though.

          Now I'm onto "Life is Strange", which has been engrossing, even though the protagonist is a 13 year old girl who is in to photography. Just finished chapter 1. Another great just walk around and explore and take your time sort of game.
