A great listen. Enjoyed hearing everyone’s lists and favourite gaming moments.

I’m now trying to think of scary but not gory horror games. The demo for ‘Slenderman the eight pages’ scared the crap of me but that mythology is tied into tragic events in the real world. The first Amnesia is supposed to be scary and I played a good portion of Project Zero (apparently called ‘Zero’ in Japan and ‘Fatal Frame’ in the US) a game about photographing ghosts that wasn’t gory as far as I remember but was clunky. It may not be available on current hardware.

Probably the scariest, non-violent movie I know is the Japanese version of ‘The Ring.’

Okay, so I had to pause midway, but... Staygold... you can’t mention that EPIC moment and not link it. That’s right, I clipped it for posterity, and yes, it’s even more impressive now that I’ve actually played Outer Wilds myself. Just bonkers, mad skillz indeed!

Shout out to Deep Rock Galactic in both Amoebic and Staygold's lists. Such a great game to play with GWJers this year.

Thank you for the shoutout, Meebs. ♥ We will see eachother again.

That's amazing, thank you for sharing. <3
