[Review] Outlast – an emotionally taxing, stunning good time.

Outlast might just be one of the most anticipated survival horror games of this year. I know that I have been waiting patiently, and now the wait is over as it released on September 4th, 2013 and it is available for download on Steam. Outlast was created and- (Outlast, PC, Steam, Survival/Horror) 89/100

After watching some of the E3 footage, there's no way that I can play this game. If it's coming to PS4 maybe, but this is going to creep me out too hard to play without a live stream feature. Let other people share in my torment :)

You've got to play it. Honestly some of the best horror gameplay I have experienced. It also looks amazing. The graphics feel so real and that is part of why it sucks you in and scares the hell out of you.

Wish I could even last long enough to play this game... I don't do well with scary games, but it does look great.

I have been playing this for the past few days and it is truly a great horror game. The atmosphere and sense of foreboding that it achieves is quite something.

It's crazy how many good horror games there are on the PC. Amnesia A Machine for Pigs is another one and is also fantastic.

Its true pc has been leading the charge for the survival horror games. With its wider range from 8 bit to almost realistic graphics. This gives them more leeway I'm guessing.

I finished the game, and needless to say I found it scarier than Amnesia. Possibly due to the fact that it's set in a more realistic environment. But man, that game had some big scares in it. Not to mention there were some crazy chase sequences as well.

Overall a fantastic game and well worth the $20 price tag.

I have not finished it yet because I can only play in short bursts it sets my nerves on edge. I'm an avid survival horror gamer but this game I truly feel stands alone. Its been a very long time where I felt the deep down terror this game gives me. You could be right being the game is set in a more realistic setting and that hits home more than the fantasy of a zombie outbreak or monster attack.

I think that's the real trick with survival horror games now is making it not how realistic is looks, but how realistic it feels. I mean looks help of coarse but if i'm made to believe something in a game that when i'm out in the real world and something that makes me think, "Huh...nah that's just in the game...right?" Then they have done their job and I will stay away from abandoned mental health facilities lol
