1. Return of the ObraDinn
This one is one of the most amazing games we have played. As an insurance adjuster from the year 1807, you roleplay your way into the ObraDinn which is a mysterious merchant ship that was apparently lost at sea. A long game of logic and puzzle, you need to identify sixty dead bodies- and mind it identifying even one is a task here.
2. Into The Breach
This is a game of tactics which also has a significant amount of depth in its storyline. The beauty of this game is that you will not be able to control all aspects of the game but only a few. You also have to stop aliens termed as Vek from taking control of your buildings. This is one challenging game to beat them all.
3. That Dragon, Cancer
This game is heart breaking, and yet you cannot stop yourself from playing it. You are to follow the journey of Ryan and Amy Green as they survive a fight against their son Joel’s cancer. It is an adventure game that deals with serious issues, but you cannot let it go because of the graphics and the overall theme that is bound to keep you hooked.
4. Her Story
If you are interested more in games with a gripping storyline that mindless gunning and bombing, then the unique video game of Her Story is what you are looking for. The game takes you through snippets of police questioning of a musician and actress called Viva Seifert whose husband has suddenly disappeared. The story is gripping and always keep you guessing.
5. Papers, Please
A puzzle game, Papers, Please is one of the most underrated games of all time. The gamer roleplays an immigration officer whose apparent job is only to check whether people who are passing from one side of the border to the other have their papers in order and are safe or not. It is a game that has depth, and you must play it in reality to understand its real significance.
