'Her Story'

Sam Barlow's "Her Story" requires players to use police videos to determine the circumstances of a woman's husband's murder.

(For: Windows, iOS, Mac OS)

Open-world or not, no game I played in 2015 was anything like Sam Barlow's "Her Story." Searching this database of a widow's police interviews — searching for the magic term that'll produce the truth of her husband's death — is like autopsying a word cloud. And Barlow's vision and Viva Seifert's acting make it as compelling as anything I played all year.
