Why It Excites – The Long Dark

Hey there, hold on a minute – Why It Excites? What kind of thing is that? Well, I sure am glad you asked – Why It Excites is my attempt to not only talk about games that I’ve played already, but also about upcoming games and why they seem exciting. But also if they could face some…
