(Just a heads up, the title is just a joke)
This blog is pretty useless but I just realized how similar Outlast is to the SCP Foundation, a 2008 creative-fiction site about this shady research agency that contains abominations (sound familiar?). It was popularized by a fan-made game adaption, SCP - Containment Breach. Like, REALLY similar. Most of you probably don't know what SCP is to begin with, so the secondary goal of this blog is to advertise a bit.

You'll notice that the con section is much bigger and more detailed than the pro section, letting on that I think Outlast is a bad game. That's not true, I genuinely find it a fun horror game, it just simply has more flaws than perfections that I enjoy discussing. Please post your own thoughts and say why or why not you agree with my points.
