The voice acting is amazing, and the music is lovely. There's such a powerful beating heart at the center of this game, and not just for our main teenage narrator, but for the father and the mother and even, to some degree the silent older sister you play as you explore the house that your family moved into while you were away.
The story here is mundane, but it's a lovely one about growing up and figuring out who you are. When I got to the 'end' of the game, I felt moved, which isn't that hard, I guess. I was moved by the end of Mass Effect 3, too. But here, you move through a space, and you learn about the people who were there and you learn bout what they left behind, and I really loved the chance to do it.
