The genre has come a long way since the days of its inception.
Who’d have thought that one day, we’d all get to play as a world class wisecracking detective talking Pikachu, and that it’d actually be good? Detective Pikachu on the 3DS had one of the most bizarre premises ever, but it makes it work so well. It has a story that is, surprisingly enough, actually interesting, which is brought to life by some pretty strong and witty writing as well, not to mention great voice performances from all main characters involved.
Now we just have to wait for the Ryan Reynolds voice pack DLC.
