There’s just something about playing the right story-driven game that speaks to some aspect of your own life or trials that’s difficult to quantify but unmistakably powerful when it hits you. Connections to your parents, childhood, good memories and bad… perhaps I’m just at the right target age for this sort of experience but Hindsight spoke to me in a way few games have managed. That said, depending on where you are in your life and what your experiences may have been, I have no doubt that this won’t be universally true, or at least possibly not to the same depth for everyone. What helps the game further is its relatively simple but very effective presentation, with everything rendered in a 3D space you can rotate around the camera on and take in the full moment with rather than just seeing experiences through static pictures. The means of navigation through memories is tied to this ability, as you’ll need to look around for the specific object or spot that will allow the story to move forward, and I’ll admit that sometimes this method works better than others. Regardless, if you enjoy being taken on emotional journeys and appreciate a healthy hit of nostalgia and rediscovering memories from the distant past this is a terrific title to go on that road with.
