So Myself, @Nicmizzle @BlasterMaster @Shenaniganz26 @Cartboy have been playing a crap load of The Forest lately. Think a survival game with cannibal AI that just wreck havoc. The game is great and has a lot of scare moments. 8 Player co-op with plans to goto PS4 eventually.

As the lone survivor of a passenger jet crash, you find yourself in a mysterious forest battling to stay alive against a society of cannibalistic mutants. Build, explore, survive in this terrifying first person survival horror simulator.

Think elements of rust but no PVP'n other plays. Just AI that loves to fuck with you! And then you explore caves that remind you a lot of the movie descent. Crafting and such is a very different take on the survival category. Gear does not wear down so once you have your ax you always have it until you die. You have no dead body, once dead that is it. Cutting down trees you have to pick up the logs and take them back to the base or a log cart. If you want to build something you have to take the logs to that platform/building and place them only 2 at a time. Eventually you get built up enough you think you are safe but the cannibals get smarter. The groups get bigger and harder cannibals start showing up. So you start setting up traps.

Dark sucks in this game. A light source attracts them and you can not see ANYTHING at night time. So you can goto sleep or hide and watch them running around in the forest looking for you. Sometimes you are chopping a tree down, turn around and BAM there are two just watching you.

This has been tons of fun. The building style is certainly unique from other similar games. Those cave runs...
