I wouldn't put it in my top 5 for the year (#8 atm) as it's going to take something very
special to budge those, 4 of the 5 at least, but I did really enjoy it. I found a large chunk of the game to be very trippy & surreal, more so than I expected, and at times, a little creepy & unsettling, but never scary. There are a few jump-scares in there but apart from the very first time, they didn't really affect me tbh, not like Amnesia, Outlast etc.
One thing I will be sure to do when I return to it again is to fiddle around with the ini files though. I did think it was my meds at first, or maybe because I had hardly been at my PC for a few weeks, but I came away feeling quite nauseous after a couple of sittings with the game and I came to the conclusion that it was due to the FOV being so narrow as default. I believe it can be manually changed via an ini file though (as annoyingly, there's no ingame slider for it) but that's something I always change when given the option.
Funny thing... whilst playing it I remember thinking to myself how awesome it would be to have an open world cyberpunk RPG which looks as good as Observer, and then instantly remembered Cyberpunk 2077. Like, how could I forget? haha. Seriously though, that game has GOAT written all over it without even seeing it yet lol.
Side note though; You may remember it from Devolver Digital's E3 'conference' as I think it was one of the only games they announced during it (lol), but RUINER has just been given a release date for next month (Sep 26th). It's an isometric cyberpunk shooter if you forgot. No horror. http://store.steampowered.com/app/464060/RUINER/
