Editor’s Choice: Why Detroit: Become Human is One of the Best Games of 2018

Posted by on Jan 01, 2019

I remember when Quantic Dream first introduced us to Kara back in 2012.

Kara is joined by fellow leads Markus and Connor to weave a moving tale about empathy, choice, and what it actually means to be human. Over the course of the story, the player’s perspective shifts between these three protagonists, each living a different life and trying to figure out its place in the world.
