80 Days Review | Quarter to Three

"But 80 Days is enough to raise again that hackneyed question: Are games art? Depending on when you ask, my response will be somewhere between “no” and “I don’t care”. But what games are, what they have been rarely and what they are increasingly, is entertainment that can be as edifying as some of the best books, television, and movies. A playthrough of 80 Days will probably take two hours. You could have spent those two hours reading Beryl Markham’s memoir, catching up on episodes of Fargo, or finally watching Under the Skin. When a game is this good, this well written, with observations this relevant, memorable, and poignant, there are no wrong choices." (80 days, iPad, iPhone) 5/5
