Tell Me Why

Slated by cave-dwelling incel bigots due to the co-main character being transgender, but a really excellent, poignant story.

Ain’t nothin’ but a heartache

Where’s @DieGrootHammer’s beautiful singing voice now?


I see everyone voting for Ori, I didn’t play that one yet so unfortunately I can only vote for Alyx. Will defs add to my list of must plays though.
