I just finished playing Outlast(free on PS4). It's far better than I expected, somewhat creepy, somewhat dumb, but enjoyable overall. It's not long though, since it can be finished in under an hour if you know what you're doing. It would be fantastic if the game could rely more on its AI instead of so many scripted events, that way it could have had leaderboards and an arcade feel to it, like a "Mirror's Edge 'N Goblins" kind of thing. Anyway, for those out there that may be wondering, no, it's not near as scary or distressful as Amnesia TDD or AMFP.
Just go done playing Lone Survivor, an indie horror game somewhat inspired by Silent Hill and Twin Peaks. It actually has excellent writing, atmosphere, soundtrack, and gameplay immersion, far better than the official Silent Hill games in recent years, and it's all done by a guy named Jasper Byrne. He did a really good job.
