I played about two more hours of Firewatch today, and after my experience with it yesterday, I have come to realize that is just what the game is, I guess. I thought I was just taking a really long time navigating the forest and wasting a bunch of time getting from point A to finding point B, but I think that is just a big part of the game. I kept waiting for something else bigger to happen, or for something big for me to do. I suppose the point of the game is just a slow-paced walk-through game where you slowly get closer to Delilah's character and explore that relationship. I'm sure there are some bigger events that happen, I just haven't gotten to those yet and I am getting kind of bored at it. Especially because I am not good at navigating. One observation I do have regarding the characters is that there communicative style is very brash and sarcastic. Neither one of them seem like the greatest people, but then again I don't know them that well yet. I do hope the game gets more exciting and more happens, because right now I don't love it.
