    I'm just breaking into all the new stuff. Before I got married, I was somewhat of an only-gamer, so all I had was a PS2 - until 2015. Now I'm catching up on everything there is.

    My favorites so far have been:

    Fallout 3 and 4
    Farcry Primal (I hear it's way different than the others, but I'd like to play them too.)
    Last of Us
    Broken Age (a neat little indie game)

    Right now the husband and I are slowly working our way through Outlast 2. Slowly because, in the spirit of enjoying it fully, we're only playing together and late at night, switching up when one gets too spooked out.

    I'm not a huge gamer but I recently got into Fallout 4, then ES: Skyrim (actually, just recently started this) and really like them. I might consider the older releases, at some point.

    Mass Effect 2 was free from Origin- wasn't half bad- it's not an open world game like Bethesda's games, but you get to make different choices on which path to take through the game, that affects your ending. Mass Effect 3 went on sale cheap, so same deal. When Andromeda gets over it's new release hump, I'll probably buy it.

    Otherwise, I've often just liked casual games. Cities: Skylines and Stardew Valley are my faves.

    The first video game my wife and I played together was Outlast.

    Needless to say, we did not finish.

    Is outlast really that scary? I was standing with it in my hand at target today and I was || this close to buying it, but changed my mind at the last second. I want to play it so bad!

    Honestly it terrified me but I'm a giant wuss when it comes to horror stuff. I also had poor inventory management and kept running out of batteries for my camera so I'd be running through the dark.

    I would highly recommend getting it, though.

    My husband bought me the Outlast trilogy. :D we started playing it and he's such a wuss. He screamed and threw the controller at one point hahaha. It is scary, but I love it! Won't play it alone though.

    I've been playing a lot of online COD black ops recently.

    I still haven't worked up the guts to buy Outlast.

    I've been playing Black Ops the last couple days too. Dunno why I went back to it, but I don't feel like playing Infinite.

    I am really not liking infinite online.

    I looked at my black ops today but put fallout in and played for 5 min before I shut it all off.

    I habe no friends on the plays tagine network so I get kinds bored.

    I'm working on Dark Souls 2 (see: the art of the rage quit) and Horizon Zero Dawn right now, but I just bought the Outlast Trilogy and Little Nightmares.

    Seeing as how I can't even muster the courage to pick up Until Dawn again, I can't see myself making it very far through the new Outlast.

    I played the first one a couple years ago and made it halfway through before I couldn't anymore.

    I've seen some parts of Outlast 2, but only a little. Gonna go into Little Nightmares completely blind.

    At least my wife will be entertained...

    Keep us posted with how it goes. :D My husband is forcing me to play Outlast on the hard setting, because he's playing it with me, so it's really difficult for me at times. Fun though!
