Any one here ever wonder... "Ya know... if I made a game, it would have..." and then you make a checkbox list?

This game, "Control" is the 2nd time (the first one was the ORIGINAL Mirrors Edge) that I've had an experience where I've witnessed ideas checked off in so thoroughly a fashion. So if that doesn't make it any more clear, yes. Fun was had.

Yet here is where it gets interesting, and unless you play this game in its "inhale to exhale", you will not understand what I say. This game has NO story. It has no beginning and no end. The weave from point to point, its "time" if you will, is atmosphere. A Being? A Somewhere? The Oldest House would have it no other way.

It's The Addams Family Manson and Hogwarts Castle. The Twilight Door mocking any assumption. The Mulder to any Scully. Yet you still might not understand.

Let me clear my throat. *̴C̴o̸u̵g̶h̴*̵ *̸̘̓̌͒C̸̦͗͝o̶̬̬͎̚u̵̹̬̺͂̊̋g̷̢̠̚h̶̹̅͠*̵̢͗̑̋̅̕

Story is about change in someway (even fighting it), and for this... despite apprentices, there was no change. In The Oldest House, there are no paradoxes, only possibilities. Or would that be the lodge? I say without typo; Why would you want to leave? You have always were here, and there is no where else. There is no place like home. The story is about keeping it that way. There is no story. Like a chain on a bike, there is no story.
