Indigo Prophecy is perhaps the best story to ever be told in a game.

Well, it did. Indigo Prophecy is one of the best games I have had the pleasure of playing, and certainly features one of the best storylines I have experienced in a video game.
Gameplay: In adventure game like Indigo Prophecy, gameplay is such a hard factor to score. The storyline is such an integral part of every aspect of the game, and this game's storyline is easly 10/10. Sadly, the action sequences revolve around what seems like a game of simon going on on your screen. The action scenes reduce you to jamming the arrow and numpad keys in an almost random fashion as you do various things that would be spoiling plot points to describe.
You move about using the arrow keys, and the control at first seems a little awkward, but once you are used to it it is quite easy. To interact with people or objects you use the mouse, moving it in certain motions. This movement system with the mouse also turns into time based decisions and other, more important things, as the game progresses.
The best thing in the game is the storyline. It is not very often that I actually care about what happens to a character in a game, let alone what happens to every character. The feeling the game brings across the screen is amazing, its so involving you will truly feel as though you are going through every scene, as you discover bits and pieces of the puzzle you are trying to solve.
The story is truly incredible, but has a few obvious gaps that should have been filled. Fortunately, these gaps do not take away from the overall experience of the story.
Graphics: These graphics aren't the best you will see on the PC, but they are still nothing to shake a stick at either. The graphics help you dig deeper into the game, and get more involved, and that deserves a great score.
Sound: The voice acting is absolutely superb. Not one character sounds awkward or forced. Every single character has the exact voice I would imagine them having.
Value: One playthrough is about 18 hours, but there truly are so many different things to do, different ways to do a scene, that it is easy to spend well over 60 hours with the game. It's just that good.
Tilt: This is one of my favorite games of all time. I didn't want it to end. It was just so amazing, so incredible, that you could feel it as if you were living it yourself. The tension felt in the characters boiled over to you, and you could feel it as well. Indigo Prophecy would be my choice for the Game of the Year.
