nex3's A Short Hike Playthrough

This is such a great example of a game that's totally confident in its own strengths and doesn't seek to compensate for them with any unnecessary "gameyness". At the same time, the way it uses exploration of the island to interleave lots of different stories and engage the player at their own pace is something that wouldn't be possible in any other medium.
