So after my initial foray into Life is Strange after buying it, I basically forgot about it for four months and picked it up again at the beginning of the week. I have not really touched any other game since. It's absolutely stunning. Thoughtful, beautiful, often better-directed than many films (the ending of episode 1 is just perfectly done) and an absolute credit to all those involved in its making.
I can see how certain aspects would irk some people, but I don't care. Easily one of the best games I've ever played. And I've still got a fair chunk of it to go! (I'm near the beginning of episode 4 of 5.)
