More games have been releasing with a focus on narrative of late, and I consider that to be a good thing. Click and point adventure titles have been making something of a comeback, and even games referred to as walking simulators are more about the story than the gameplay mechanics. It would be easy to call The Vanishing of Ethan Carter a walking simulator, but that would be selling the title short. There is plenty to see, but enough to do to justify thinking of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter as a complete game worth experiencing.
