Tomodachi Life is a fantastically bizarre game that falls somewhere between Animal Crossing and The Sims and incorporates otaku culture to create an unforgettably unique gaming experience.
At times, Tomogachi Life is downright hilarious, and at other times it’s completely flabbergasting (editor: “flabbergasting”? Heh.). You’re in charge of looking after a bunch of Miis, who need food and water and also like certain niceties and luxuries. They also love playing in minigames and letting you know what’s happening in their lives on their home island via a news desk.

Journey is one of the most original games of all time and the brain child of video game designer Jenova Chen and video game developer ThatGameCompany. Like most of ThatGameCompany’s work, Journey is an experimental and emotional gaming experience.
Journey tells an ambiguous story in a barren wasteland full of ruins. When you begin your adventure your character is in a dessert. They have no name, no backstory and no purpose.

Journey then proceeds to tell its story through mosaics and glyphs, with the occasional cutscene filling details in.

They are the sort of games that you can get completely engrossed in, spending hours playing through all the side quests and exploring every nook and cranny in the game.
