There’s No Way I’m Reviewing Outlast For You
I started playing Outlast on the PS4 last night, probably at around 10pm, with the lights dimmed.
After about 15 minutes of playing the game, I decided there’s no way I’m reviewing this game for you.
If you’re a horror fan (which I am not), you should take that as a good sign. The game is very, very atmospheric, and manages to evoke genuine fear, or at the very least dread. It does this using all the usual horror tricks and tropes, which is kind of derivative in a way, but it’s done very well, so if you like being terrified, this is a game for you.
As for me, I’m literally too old for this shit. I’m done being manipulated for kicks. Also, I don’t like scary stuff. So no review of Outlast for you.
It’s also worth mentioning that Outlast is free right now if you’re a PS Plus member! So if you’re one of those people, go get it!
