Mike Stuchbery 💀🍷 @MikeStuchbery_ Journalist, Teacher & Historian (@BylineTimes/@TheLocalEurope) ★ You met me at a very strange time in my life. Jun. 05, 2019 1 min read

A couple of folks mentioned it, but right at the end of 'Horizon Zero Dawn', you come across someone whose fate you were uncertain of, by the ruins of a farmhouse, surrounded by flowers.

With the sheer, unrelenting tragedy of the game's backstory, that sent me over the edge.

At the end of 'Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice', a character achieves emotional catharsis after hours of Hel (not a misspelling) as 'Illusion' by VNV Nation kicks in, and man...

Oh, and the 'Bloody Baron' questline in The Witcher 3. Jesus.
