This is a spin off from the Gaming 2020 thread (it’s a lovely thread with lovely people you should visit sometime) which is basically going to be like your book clubs and film clubs etc.
Every 2 weeks we’ll take a nominated game from the Gamepass service on (PC & Xbox) and play it. We’ve gone with this requirement for game choice because games are expensive and whilst the service isn’t on all platforms it’s probably the closest to Netflix we have currently.
Whilst we use Gamepass to select the games - of course anyone can participate on any platform where the games are available (it’s just the easiest way to ensure enough people have access readily available to games)

I’ve actually already played this game - its got a really good atmosphere and is really quite engrossing. The stealth is very linear and basic but as someone thats bad at stealth games but likes good looking immersive narrative games this suited me very well.
I enjoyed this game a lot. Probably wont play it again myself but think people will enjoy this one. It’s listed as survival horror but I didn’t find it particularly scary myself.
It looked really beautiful and atmospheric. Not sure whether I’ll give it a shot (cause I’ve seen so much second hand so I kind of know what to expect?), but I’m def interested
I’m not going to make it more than 15 minutes through this
Honestly calling it a horror game is a stretch and the stealth isn’t too bad - even for someone as stealth illiterate as me
I actually hate stealth and horror games but like this game a lot
I like stealth. I dislike horror.
It’s downloading now, anyway.
The horror boils down to ‘do rats bother you’ I’m always a bit surprised this game is labeled as horror tbf
