I realized that after finishing the first two chapters of the game, I don't have the time nor testicular fortitude to actually finish the rest of the game. However, that doesn't mean I don't want to finish it. The story is good, like a good Joe Hill horror book. My coworker Bryon made an excellent suggestion and that was to simply go to YouTube to watch a playthrough of the game. Now I can enjoy the game passively, like listening to an audio book, and get work done.
I did the same thing with the movie Crazy Heart. On a normal weeknight, after dinner, Josie and I actually have two hours at maximum of free time. There'd be no way to properly spend time with her and watch a movie she wouldn't want to watch. So I played it on the laptop on the train ride to work at 1.5x the speed. I was able to absorb more content in a lesser amount of time.
All I know is that it works for me.
The game still scares the poop out of me though.
