Short Pause: "Gamers have been gifted with some of the most masterful horror experiences in the history of gaming early on in this generation of consoles. From full-fledged horror games like Outlast, to the critically acclaimed “demo” that was P.T. (which we wish was a full retail experience), horror games are more effective now than they have ever been before. As developers continue to find new ways to haunt our dreams with ghastly visuals and unsettling audio design, I get more and more excited about not only how much this genre has evolved in recent times, but where it’s going in the near future. Layers of Fear is a title that has all the hallmarks of being the next exceptional horror experience, but it’s ultimately held back by performance issues that pull you out of an otherwise top-notch production."
