Top 3 Horror Video Games For The Summer

Top 3 Horror Video Games For The Summer

These are some Horror I'd personally recommend for people over the summer.

As it gets closer to the end of the semester, I know many students will be heading back home and going out to the beach or some other location for a vacation, but being the nerd, I prefer things such as comic books, conventions, video games. I love horror games and making my friends play them. This year quite a few games have come out and set quite the precedence for many people and are getting attention of many. Few of these are personal favorites and I hope others come to enjoy these ones as much as I do.

1. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

This is one of my favorite franchises of all time. I loved the Resident Evil franchise for its own brand of survival horror and how it'd provide scares for its characters. Most of the franchise's games were in third person, over-the-shoulder point of view, where as this one is in first person point of view, forcing you the player to be involved with the environment. This game is in VR as well adding to the environmental experience of it. I'd recommend this game hands down to anyone and everyone I know.

2. Outlast/Outlast 2

Outlast I found to be another great first person horror game. Unlike Resident Evil, your character can't fight back against the enemies and can only run, hide, or die. In this game your character is an investigative reporter looking into a deranged asylum testing on their patients. You have to find your way back out of the asylum, running from both psychotic patients and the paranormal. Outlast 2 takes place in a cult's village in South America. You are again, an investigative reporter, but with your wife this time, investigating the mysterious death of a woman not too far from this village. As you learn soon after your helicopter crashes in the mountains, you find out the village consists of derange Christians who kill many people in hopes of killing the Anti-Christ. Unfortunately, they have your wife! So you have to find your wife, free her, then find your way out of the village before they kill you both. This is another game I'd recommend playing 10/10.

3. Stories Untold

This is a game where you have to type out your actions to progress through four stories, piecing together their importance with one another. Each story involves a new type of adventure with different things to interact with and are great because they play on the gamer's individual imagination. The first story involves you going through an abandoned house and understand what it is that went on inside of it. The second story is you testing on an alien artifact and seeing what tools affect it. The third story is you in the freezing mountains, in a military base, communicating with some others stationed in other bases located on the mountains. The final story is the one to connect all of them together and enlighten you on what it is you went through the stories at the start. This game is a lot like "Stranger Things" so fans of the show out there will enjoy this game.

I can only hope that many of you look into these games and see how you feel about them. Also each of these games have a demo so check them out if you want to get a feel of them.

​An Open Letter To The People Who Don’t Tip Their Servers

This one's for you.

Dear Person Who Has No Idea How Much The 0 In The “Tip:" Line Matters,

I want to by asking you a simple question: Why?

Is it because you can't afford it? Is it because you are blind to the fact that the tip you leave is how the waiter/waitress serving you is making their living? Is it because you're just lazy and you “don't feel like it"?

Is it because you think that, while taking care of not only your table but at least three to five others, they took too long bringing you that side of ranch dressing? Or is it just because you're unaware that as a server these people make $2.85 an hour plus TIPS?

The average waiter/waitress is only supposed to be paid $2.13 an hour plus tips according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

That then leaves the waiter/waitress with a paycheck with the numbers **$0.00** and the words “Not a real paycheck." stamped on it. Therefore these men and women completely rely on the tips they make during the week to pay their bills.

So, with that being said, I have a few words for those of you who are ignorant enough to leave without leaving a few dollars in the “tip:" line.

Imagine if you go to work, the night starts off slow, then almost like a bomb went off the entire workplace is chaotic and you can't seem to find a minute to stop and breathe, let alone think about what to do next.

Imagine that you are helping a total of six different groups of people at one time, with each group containing two to 10 people.

Imagine that you are working your ass off to make sure that these customers have the best experience possible. Then you cash them out, you hand them a pen and a receipt, say “Thank you so much! It was a pleasure serving you, have a great day!"

Imagine you walk away to attempt to start one of the 17 other things you need to complete, watch as the group you just thanked leaves, and maybe even wave goodbye.

Imagine you are cleaning up the mess that they have so kindly left behind, you look down at the receipt and realize there's a sad face on the tip line of a $24.83 bill.

Imagine how devastated you feel knowing that you helped these people as much as you could just to have them throw water on the fire you need to complete the night.

Now, realize that whenever you decide not to tip your waitress, this is nine out of 10 times what they go through. I cannot stress enough how important it is for people to realize that this is someone's profession — whether they are a college student, a single mother working their second job of the day, a new dad who needs to pay off the loan he needed to take out to get a safer car for his child, your friend, your mom, your dad, your sister, your brother, you.

If you cannot afford to tip, do not come out to eat. If you cannot afford the three alcoholic drinks you gulped down, plus your food and a tip do not come out to eat.

If you cannot afford the $10 wings that become half-off on Tuesdays plus that water you asked for, do not come out to eat.

If you cannot see that the person in front of you is working their best to accommodate you, while trying to do the same for the other five tables around you, do not come out to eat. If you cannot realize that the man or woman in front of you is a real person, with their own personal lives and problems and that maybe these problems have led them to be the reason they are standing in front of you, then do not come out to eat.

As a server myself, it kills me to see the people around me being deprived of the money that they were supposed to earn. It kills me to see the three dollars you left on a $40 bill. It kills me that you cannot stand to put yourself in our shoes — as if you're better than us. I wonder if you realize that you single-handedly ruined part of our nights.

I wonder if maybe one day you will be in our shoes, and I hope to God no one treats you how you have treated us. But if they do, then maybe you'll realize how we felt when you left no tip after we gave you our time.

My life is currently a mess at the moment. I'm trying to adult, but adulting is really hard and I can't seem to do it well. It doesn't help that all of my sims are better at adulting then me. Sure, they may start the occasional fire while trying to cook a grilled cheese, but at least they are trying their best and thriving better than I am.

1. My sims actually know how to cook.

My sims may not be the best cooks, but at least they actually try. I usually opt for instant noodles and takeout.

2. My sim works out more than I do.

My sims go to the gym on a regular basis, where as I'm lucky to go once a week.

3. My sim has an actual love life.

Relationships in the sims are super easy, you can meet a cute sim and then one hour later you're dating.

4. My sims sex life is way better than mine.

Fun fact! The Sims has a lot of fascinating places to woohoo, and all of my sims have done it way more than I have.

5. My sim can actually afford rent while working an entry level job.

There is no way I will be able to afford rent for a city loft as a freelance writer, but my sim seems to be doing just fine, and they even have money in their savings.
