What is Firewatch. That’s the funny joke right, have I done it well? In all seriousness though, Firewatch was, and still is, a kind of difficult game to pin down. It’s not a video game in the same sense Super Mario is a very video game ass video game. Rather, it’s a story, one in which the player participates. Like the new Telltale brand of adventure game, player input really really negligible to what is a very pretty and interesting narrative experience.
