Video: Games that do mental health right

Hellblade isn't the first to tackle this complex topic.

Hellblade, Ninja Theory's next game, focuses heavily on the mental health of main character Senua. It's an interesting premise and one I hope is executed successfully. In making this design choice, Ninja Theory has placed itself among a number of other developers who have attempted, in a variety of ways, to portray mental health issues in a constructive manner.

Mental health is a topic very close to my heart, so I decided to take a look at a few games that have dealt with mental health issues with both style and sensitivity.

Be warned, the below video contains spoilers for Borderlands 2 and Life is Strange episode 2.
