The Path
 / 

I haven’t tried The Path, the new game from Tale of Tales, but I gotta give a priori props to a project that can earn this kind of paragraph:

I’m left feeling incredibly unsure about how to express my negative feelings, having attempted this paragraph half a dozen times. I don’t want to give anything away that happens in the game, but I do want to discuss my experience of playing as Ruby, and why it genuinely upset me. I think this is The Path’s greatest achievement — to be capable of being genuinely upsetting.

And then check out the comments. This is not the kind of convo you usually get about a new game release. Granted, this is all on Rock Paper Shotgun, which is already sort of the New Yorker of game blogs. But even so.
