Illustration for article titled You know what Red Barrel, I give up. You win

Because I am never playing Outlast again.

I usually love horror games, but Outlast is where I draw the line. I can't play it without my hands shaking like crazy. It takes me minutes to work up the courage to go around corners or into darkened rooms.


You wanted to make the ultimate survival horror game Red Barrel? Well you've done it. I could get through Slender, I could get through Amnesia, but I can't get through the first 3 hours of Outlast.

Which is sad because the game is absolutely beautiful (and ... detailed...) and a lot of thought and care was put into it. I especially like how you can look down and see your body, and the fact that if you step in blood, you track bloody footprints behind you (that scared me more then a few times before I figured out it was only me).

Maybe I can stand to play it when its released on the PS4 and I can sit far, far away from my TV screen to play, but as of now, I'm done.
