Subnautica

Ross's notes:  One of the best game experiences I've had.  Really nails that feeling of discovery and going into another world and had excellent pacing.  Was hoping for more from the ending however.

 

Genre: Exploration

Ross's rating: Fantastic

Unfortunately, this game really hits on some of my phobias... I literally couldn't bring myself to go into the deepest parts because of the lack of any illumination and the really fast enemies.

This game gave me at least one new phobia. I can no longer look towards distant places in water because of Reapers.

My favorite term for the new flavor of fear this game introduces you to is "the deep ocean willies."

One of the best 1st person base-building underwater exploration games of all time.

A category of which I can only think of one title- this one- thus making this game really stand apart from others.

Great immersive gameplay- has some story if you care for a deep dive (I didn't.) Really just a window into a possible alien world.

Would Rate: Fantastic

I love this game. The story flows along with your progression well. It has enough structure that you always are moving to the next thing to do at just the right pace (unlike, say No Man's Sky which might actually be too open). I'm not saying it is right for everyone, and having played a bit of the early access for their next installment (Subnautica Below Zero) I'm not convinced they'll be able to capture lightning in a bottle twice but this game definitely rewarded a little investment of time.
