If this is your first time hearing about Unpacking, let us tell you what you missed. This relaxing organization sim follows a character as they go through different stages of life from childhood, college, breakups, and forever homes. The player’s job is to unpack the character’s possessions in their various houses and find the best place for it all.

When it was released late last year, Unpacking accidentally made a large percentage of its players feel incredibly old because it was discovered that young gamers did not recognize the Nintendo GameCube-type console in the game and did not know where to place it in the house.
