Life is Strange was one of the most riveting narrative adventures I’ve ever played. It captured the essence of what it was to be a teenager, to hate high school, to want to succeed beyond the brick walls of a teenage hell. And through Max’s adventure as she acquired her time-changing ability, I felt myself changing. On the journey through Life Is Strange, I remembered my own high school friends and our own adventures. And I remembered the things I had learned growing up, things Life Is Strange reiterated in the most dramatic way possible. And I’ll never forget them. With the physical release of Life Is Strange Limited Edition on PS4 next week, I think back to everything I learned from experiencing Max’s story. Warning: spoilers ahead.

1. High School Sucks
High school, for many, is an intermission between the extravagant adventures of youth and the freedom and complexities of adulthood. It’s a time when you can discover what kind of person you want to become and what you want to do for the rest of your life. For others, it’s a walk through hell where each day is longer than the last. Max clearly portrays high school as just another dungeon holding nefarious villains like Nathan Prescott and Victoria Chase. And she’s right, high school was a bummer.
