I haven't formed an overall opinion about Brothers, but I know that a few moments (especially near the end) are gut-wrenching. Because the game's controls and story are so well connected, those moments have an added, tactile level of depth. I wrote this article to explore specifically how this works during each scene.
I have posted the article here. It contains heavy spoilers, and is meant to be read only after completion of the game.
Any thoughts and opinions are appreciated.
