I recently played Life is strange and I absolutely loved the atmosphere of being free to walk around a realistic American school, town and so on, at least where the missions allowed you, are there any games that function in a similar way? Not the time warping thing or the story, but with that kind of environment and freedom to just explore it?
I guess I can count in The long dark as well, that’s a survival game, but you still have American/Canadian inspired locations and you’re free to walk anywhere you want and just discover places. I hated the last 2 chapters of the Life is strange because they were too linear and you couldn’t go around, it felt like a boring cutscene that doesn’t seem to end, so I don’t want stuff like that.
How does Firewatch stack up in all this?
