You thought I was gonna start a list with Detective Pikachu the movie and not immediately segue to Detective Pikachu the game? Pay attention, folks. Look at that beautiful byline. Anyway, the whole trajectory of Detective Pikachu as a Thing has been bizarre. It went from a weird, Japanese curiosity to a Hollywood movie out of nowhere, which then led to the actual game coming to North America years later. And just as a game, it's weird too! Pikachu is strange and has a strange voice, the story is wild, the world-building is incredibly thorough, and even the logic puzzles and whatnot are super thoughtful. It's just hard to comprehend this game, this property at that, existing.
