Best Adventure

Enter the masters of the winding saga. These titles take the player to far off exotic lands, where they can explore, discover and resolve mysteries, usually involving a rubber chicken. Many titles have an element of this category within them, from platformers to text-only games through to fully fledged open worlds, but only the greatest manage to harness the perfect pace of adventure through a game’s unfolding. The Best Adventure award stands out as one of the most richly awarded game accolades, only going to those titles that truly capture our imagination and hold our hands as we journey across the reaches of possibility.

Life Is Strange - Episode 1
Life is Strange flew under the radar for much of the year, and in some sense it still does, but what Dontnod has achieved is pretty special. What began as a twee teenage adventure unfolded into one of the most gripping episodic sagas in gaming. Max Caulfield’s tale of a girl who harnessed the ability to manipulate time is as fascinating as it is shocking and unpredictable. Easily one of the finest of the new breed of adventure games popularised by Telltale.
Imagine Planescape Torment fused with Dead Space without the combat and you're halfway to understanding what Stasis is. Solo developer Chris Bischoff pretty much created this isometric point and click adventure on his own from scratch. Despite the top-down viewpoint, a menacing atmosphere and grim tale delivers one of the best horror and adventure games of the year.
