I've never played the new one but I thought it was a boating simulator. All the memes and stuff have them in a boat.
Lots of people saying to play Firewatch. I got a ways into it, then got distracted by some other game. When I went back to Firewatch I had no idea where I was supposed to go or do, I ended up just wandering around not advancing the story. So I either need help or start over from the beginning.
