Feelings of fear and adoration surround my relationship with Subnautica. There's so much beauty contained within a game that could not contain more personalized deterrents from me ever playing it. Naturally, that just increases my attraction to it. I have never wanted to truly conquer a game so much in my life.
2018 was not the year where I built up the nerve to explore the most immersive open water video game. Every time I realized I had ventured out beyond a depth I was comfortable with, I was struck with the inability to move any further. While staying still I was able to see curiosities beckoning me to move forward. I will see them some day, but for right now they are also surrounded by a murky unknown and I'm not wearing the right pants to deal with those possibilities. Thanks for the patient swim lesson, Subnautica.
Throughout January, the Games of 2018 will lead the way towards The 2018 Grimmys - Horrible Night's Games of the Year Awards.
