My favorite video game is ‘Inside’
I love video games but I rarely play them. I’m terrible at games. My brain can’t handle complex controls using multiple buttons. I dislike managing an “inventory” of any kind. I have a terrible sense of direction. I don’t learn from my mistakes. It’s a recipe for failure.
I bought a Nintendo Switch hoping it would rekindle my interest in gaming, and it did, for a while. Most games are too difficult for me to enjoy. I don’t have the patience or the skill and I quit playing in frustration.
Based on positive reviews, I bought “Inside” by Playdead. I love this game. It has wonderful physics, beautiful design, simple controls, and is full of pleasant surprises. I’ve been saying “Wow!” a lot. The puzzles are fun and clever. The ongoing sense of accomplishment is perfectly balanced against the beautiful but creepy environment.
Inside is a nearly perfect game for me.
