#26: Child of Light
The concept of beauty is an interesting one, to be sure. We all have our own ideas on what is beautiful and what makes something truly beautiful. And many of us, myself included, are always searching for those things that reval their beauty to us. I consider Child of Light to be a truly beautiful game. Whether it be its incredible graphical art style, or the stunning soundtrack helmed by Coeur de Pirate, or even the simple yet touching fairy tale-esque story... Child of Light is a game set apart by its beauty. And all I could do was be transfixed by this game as I played, even setting down the controller at points and taking in the setting in front of me. For this I will always cherish game, and hope that more developers strive for beauty in a industry dominated by a boorish gaming culture. One can only hope.
