    "When I lost my job, I found myself with a lot of pent up rage. Now, I wouldn't actually ever go out and kill people; if I've learned nothing else from Hannibal, it's that it's really tough not to get caught. Thankfully, games like The Sexy Brutale are out there. The graphics are sort of retro, but incredibly cute, with green butterflies and polished skulls. The "What's Your Poison Bar" just makes me grin; the whole ambiance of the game is really heavy into these dark shadows and muted purples and greens that, for some reason, sets me at ease. Being able to relive days and days of murder, of course, just makes it that much greater!"

    "Don't Starve was not for me. It wasn't my kind of game. But I'm giving it a high review all the same, because it was quite good. It was imaginative, clever, has a wonderful aesthetic - it just wasn't for me. I found it to be quite repetitive, though in ways that I think fans of the genre will appreciate rather than curse. It was also rather punishing - and, again, many people enjoy that. If this is your kind of game, definitely buy this one."

    "So I know that these shooter games are so hot. I mean even if my 8 year old talks about Fortnite. So when my husband got Superhot I wanted to see what all the hype was about. I found the game frustrating. Probably because I wasn't very good at it and since there is no life regenerating bars if you suck you die. And I died...a lot. A game that is frustrating makes me not want to play it so this is a pass for me."

My friend Brian really recommended it to me since he loves RPGs. I love tactical RPGs and vikings, so I checked it out. This game is awesome! I love the graphics and the animation. I also love being able to choose from more than 25 characters. It's a ton of fun! Check it out!"

Its cool to go to other planets and bring back the resources from that planet to sell for profit too. With all the options to be a fighter, trader or explorer I never get bored. This one really encourages my imagination to go out on a limb, hours of fun!"

    "When I heard about the description of this game, it made me wonder, "how can they handle something like this?". You play as a blind woman trying to survive as best as she could. The game did not fail my curiosity, it was brilliantly done in such a way a person can play a game as a blind person trying to navigate her way around and survive from her enemies."

    "This is a great game by itself, it's scary, and I had lots of fun playing it. Solving the mysteries of the game is enjoyable and stimulating. However, it's a Steam game and not geared to the PS4 at all. In that respect, it's hard to rate it fairly as a PS4 Indie Game since that isn't what it is."
