The Medium Short Story

That story is undoubtedly the star. The Medium is exquisitely paced and plotted, with multidimensional characters and a complex, but not convoluted, supernatural mystery to uncover. I had several running theories about what was going on at the haunted Niwa Resort that all made sense, but the true answer ended up being even more elegant and poignant than I guessed—and yet the solution didn’t come out of left field, M. Night Shyamalan style.

Over its course, The Medium asks what makes a person evil, and what the difference is between the innately sadistic and those who are turned into monsters by cycles of violence—though it doesn’t apologize for anyone. In untangling these themes it explores domestic abuse and even genocide, but these concepts aren’t displayed gratuitously for mere shock value. It’s some of the sharpest writing I’ve seen in a videogame in quite a long time.
