I agree. And Bryan is also a great suporter of the gaming community. He and his wife (who also played a character in D:BH) are always taking part in fan conventions and streaming games on Twitch

In  a certain way.... this kind of game is reminiscent of the point-and-click genre that was hugely popular in the 90´s on PC Gaming. It has a similar feel in terms of gameplay (given it´s 3D instead of 2D) but it is not as puzzle-heavy as those games were back in the day. Instead, it´s more focused on decision-making, story and (sometimes) branching paths.

What makes me wonder why some so-called "seasoned gamers" or "hardcore gamers", when reviewing interactive dramas, have such hard time digging the concept and are always falling on the same "it´s not a game" falacy. I mean, people who actually experienced those kind of games back in the day, they were expected to be more open-minded when reviewing it, even if it´s not their favorite genre.

That said, I do understand that this genre may not please certain audiences. It has a demo, I´d recommend give it a try.

I don't even bother with people calling it "not a game". I like the experience and funnily enough have loaned the game to 4 people that also liked it.

Don't spoil yourself with Youtube.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

No, it ain‘t, not even in a certain way. QD games belong to the game genre https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_interactive_movies and have not much in common with point & click adventure games.

Here are some examples for recently released point & click adventure games:

Unforseen Incidents: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YcCZCnXvaOc

Classic point & click games have a fraction of QD games‘ budget. The reason is that - in the best case - millions of people are willing to buy interactive movies these days, but only some ten thousands worldwide buy p&c games. Even Ron Gilbert‘s last (and excellent) point&click game "Thimbleweed Park" from 2017 didn‘t sell enough to earn him enough money to make another game (Ron Gilbert is a legendary game designer among point&click fans, he created the first two "Monkey Island" games for LucasArts).

BTW, I like some interactive movies (Life Is Strange, Tales from the Borderlands, The Wolf Among Us, King‘s Quest [2015], Ken Follett‘s Pillars of the Earth).

"Detroit Become Human" has the best / most interesting characters of the year for me! :)
Great News, I am very happy for the developers. Thanks for the info.
The atmosphere is incredible and I particularly liked the emotions + psychology elements.

edit: Yes, of course. 4x times. Last time with two friends & my brother together with their own decisions. These nights will forever be unforgotten in my heart ; ) @JamesKirbyBond007

This makes me want a brother to game with,my sisters are not interested in it at all :p

All the ones you listed at most would be at most interactive cartoon =p

It makes me sad that there isn't public for point and click anymore. I loved The Dig and Full Throttle back in the time and enjoyed a lot the remake of the second.

I loved Hank, he's the reason I did a 3rd play through just to antagonize him with Conner. Better performance than Arthur indeed.



The super seller Detroit is now at 19,99$ at Amazon. Yeah!
