TA Playlist game for October 2020 announced

By The TA Playlist Team,
Whilst we wade our way through thousands of hungry, plague-carrying rats, hoping that our toes stay relatively intact in A Plague Tale: Innocence, we’re here to announce the winner of our October TA Playlist poll. Keeping with the annual spooky game theme, we asked you to pick between Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Dead Space 2, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man Of Medan and Blair Witch. It was a fairly close race but in the end, Isaac’s continuing adventures nightmares in space edged out the competition with 31.07% of the votes.

Dead Space 2

The original Dead Space was our Playlist choice last year so it seems fitting that we continue the story this October. Released back in January 2011 it sees the necromorph outbreak making its way to the vast space station known as the Sprawl, which is nestled in orbit around Titan, Saturn’s largest moon. Naturally, chaos ensues as put upon engineer Isaac Clarke must once again grab his trusty Plasma Cutter and get to some dismembering. The sequel is highly rated with 4.49/5.00 here on TA. It was Games with Gold in April 2018 and is available in the EA Play Vault.

Here are how the full results of the poll shook out:

Join us in October as we remove some limbs and change our soiled pants in Dead Space 2. And let’s avoid choosing the much-maligned third entry next year, yeh?

The TA Playlist is a monthly community event. Everyone votes on which of four games to play, and then we all play through it in the following month. There's a dedicated hub to discuss everything about the game, from story beats to gameplay tips – and of course, you can track your achievement progress during the month as well. TA Playlist was created by Mark Delaney and is now run by Miles, Nici and Chewie.
