2What Remains of Edith Finch

What Remains of Edith Finch

What Remains of Edith Finch tells the story of the titular Edith Finch, a young woman returning to her childhood home. It’s been several years since she’s been there, and she’s not quite sure what will be waiting for her. We, as players, aren’t sure either. And what ensues is a touching adventure filled with twists and turns.

At its heart, it fits perfectly as one of the best walking simulator games on PS4; Edith moves around her old home and its grounds, an infinitely interesting place that begs exploration and discovery. But at each room she stops in, she’ll learn more about the resident, a family member who has passed away. And through a creative interactive flashback, we’ll learn what happened to them.

What Remains of Edith Finch mixes genres and methods of storytelling, leaving us with an experience that’s emotional, captivating and entirely worthy of our attention. Few narrative-driven games on PS4 come close to Edith Finch – it really is a special adventure.
