What video game are you most looking forward to?

Currently the game I'm looking forward to playing most is 'Friday the 13th'. It's a game that's been in development for a few years. I'm a big fan of films and so the horror genre and some of the classic horror, like 'Romero' (George A. Romero - a horror movie writer and director) and stuff like that, they, they're something that I still go back and watch with a sort of nostalgia to.

Friday the 13th as a concept has always been I think one of the most iconic horror films to ever, you know, hit the big screen.

And having a video game where you can play as the camp counselors, as well as playing Jason (Jason Voorhees - the main character of the movie), and having sort of competitive back-and-forth, I think it's going to be really
intense. I think it's going to be genuinely horrifying to try and hide from such an iconic villain. And it's also going to be really thrilling and fun to hunt down and kill these other players as they're playing the camp counselors, as a sort of game of cat-and-mouse.

I feel, I feel it's two games rolled into one and it's, it does you know, deals with something that I greatly love, which is movies.

And I'm really excited to see how it translates into the video game format because, you know, obviously development companies have had a hard time translating that in the past.
