Yeah me neither. I never actually finished it when I was playing it on PC. Maybe now is a good time for that.

Also picking up the new Naruto game. The Beta was actually pretty fun.

I have Amnesia on PS4 and PC and have yet to play it.

One was PS+ and I think another was a humble bundle so I've really never paid attention to it

Add me to the list of Amnesiacs who didn't see this coming :-P

I have 1 & 2 on Steam.

Will def be getting Videokid. Hearing great things about Bad North, but it seems like a game I may prefer on Switch... waiting for more reviews.

Bad North looks like it would be a great (free) IOS game.

Amnesia, nice! That Sony exclusivity must have finally run out.

Is Amnesia worth the $30? I've never played but I enjoy horror games unless they're annoyingly difficult.

My jaw hit the floor when I saw Amnesia, getting that for sure.

Picking up Strange Brigade, Divinity 2 and Naruto.

The VideoKid is the next Grand Theft Auto. Look at all the illegal activity in just that one screenshot.

The kid riding skateboard in the street, the car playing chicken with the skateboarder, the unsecured load that just fell off the back of the car, the garage that was built without a permit behind a bus stop, and the kid selling lemonade without a permit.

Hm. Amnesia, interesting. I didn't see news of that coming to Xbox anywhere.

At any rate the only game I might get is DayZ, but only if the price is right and I enjoy the 1 hour demo.

Dark Descent is great. Machine for pigs is alright, but not as good. They're great games regardless and have great story, atmosphere and gameplay. Play with headphones for the best experience. 30 bucks might be a bit too high for the collection imo.

If you never got the chance to play Amnesia on PC, PLAY IT! It really set the standard for non-action horror in the last decade. It's great experience and I highly recommend playing it on a dark rainy night with a few friends along for the ride.

It's also worth playing from a purely historical standpoint. That game had a massive influence on the current state of gaming content online. For example, it catapulted Pewdiepie from an unknown Machinima CoD commentator, to a massively popular let's player. It's definitely not as recognized as big name IPs, but if you were on YouTube back in the early 2010s, then you heard about this game. Hell, you could make an argument that the new Hollywood Slenderman movie is a result of the online culture spawned by this game and its YouTube Let's Plays.
