A free update to a masterpiece? That adds full voice acting, new quests, and a slew other of bonus features? Gee, I’m sure Steam users are hating that.

I joke because Disco Elysium’s new Final Cut version might be the surest possible layup in Steam history. The original, released in 2019, was a role-playing masterpiece that outdid its own inspirations, like Planescape Torment, with a focus on smart, funny, tangibly satisfying writing and a timely reflection on a melting pot of political ideologies. Final Cut has opened the floodgates to new players—who I guess hate reading?—while freshening things up for longtime fans. It seems to have paid off; Disco Elysium’s Steam version has gained nearly 1,000 new positive reviews since the update dropped. Sometimes, it’s nice to just watch people talk about why a good thing is, in fact, good.

This game makes me feel like an ass.

I’m all for deep story, interesting narrative...

But, I just could not get into this game at all. Like, this was the very first title I ever got a Steam Refund for after trying to give it an hour and a half.
