For the most analytical and questioning of minds, there's nothing quite like a good mystery.
Sure, there can be some excitement in trying to figure out how you misplaced your wallet, or what exactly you did after waking up with a pounding headache and several street signs scattered across the floor, but the sense of accomplishment when solving a real mind-breaking conundrum is a feeling we all love.
Not only is solving the mystery rewarding, but the journey is what makes or breaks the story. What good is a mystery without a little (or a lot of) suspense?
That very anxiety is what makes it so exciting.
Whether it be through movie thrillers or classic mystery novels, we're always trying to find the answers to the real questions. What happened here? Why did it happen? Who did it? Maybe it's an insightful metaphor for existence itself, but we'll talk about that another day.
Grab your camera, watch out for those twists, and remember to hold someone's hand as we talk about scores of games that present us with magnificently crafted mysteries.
