The Long Dark

I ignored survival mode and went straight for Wintermute; the story mode recently released. The start is a little rocky (no hints on how to do anything or the controls), but quickly got really into it and the story is a good excuse for learning the survival mechanics. The game is stylised and quite pretty - reminiscent of Telltale's Walking Dead. Felt an incredible sense of achievement when I finally killed a rabbit with a stone to survive. I found the wolves game breaking though; I got mauled multiple times immediately after leaving a building, and the quests in story mode are all fetch quests.
