Musings of Mudora XII: Memories of the Moon

old

How’s that for an alliterative title? I’ve recently begun a sort of “indie game binge” wherein I play a bunch of indie games that I’ve heard promising things about. They’re a nice break from the 15+ hour blockbusters that I’ve been playing and give me a wider spectrum of games-played for our end of the year podcast. The shorter playtime may also explain why RtP! has made more than one post in the same week! Wow! But moving on to the main topic, and boy what a topic it is, I’ll start off by saying it’s a shame this game escaped my radar in 2011 because Freebird’s To The Moon would have rivaled Ghost Trick as my pick for best game story of the year.

The Best Video Game Stories of 2011 by Lost Link

best stories

2011 was a good year for video games with a lot of big releases during the last quarter. I haven’t even been able to start a few that I wanted to play (thanks Skyrim!). Unlike one of my notorious accomplices b-rock, I try to dedicate my time to a single gaming experience before moving on to the next. I feel more immersed and focused on the game’s story and characters. That, or my memory won’t allow me to save multiple princesses at once. But as the year is up I must pause and reflect upon the games that have stood out among the crowd and captured my imagination.
