How are these games?

Looked up some games on stream that seemed promising. Looking for some second opinions.

Also, feel free to recommend anything else in the adventure game genre. I'm gonna try to be more open minded this time, and consider any suggestions. Just please, tell me why you think someone that knows next to nothing about the game should play it.

A choice of playstyle without balance is no choice at all.

blackwell is great.

skip raven... only played like 80% of the first episode and too many things annoyed me to pursue it any further.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

too slow pacing even for an adventure game and just pretty damn dull everything(characters, puzzles, conversation)... maybe the action "picks up" in later episodes but i'm certainly not going to find out.

Yeah, dull characters alone kill an adventure game for me.

For me personally, good conversations should be the reward for doing puzzles.

No one's played Memoria? From what I understand, it was highly anticipated for an adventure game.
