1. Eternal Sonata

While the popularity of this game remains limited, Eternal Sonata is what this list is all about. Inspired by the works of the late great Frederic Chopin, the brilliant Polish composer known for his moving sonatas, Eternal Sonata acts as Chopin’s dying dream world. The game begins with Chopin on his deathbed, slowly succumbing to his illness. His creative mind builds an entire world, where you play as Allegretto, Beat, Crescendo, and other characters named after musical notations. The game itself flows like the composition of a sonata, and the end result is a beautiful and tragic piece of excellent storytelling. It’s like if Man on the Moon was a video game.
