Prey (2017) just turned five years old this week, proving once again that time is a vortex. However, we saw this as a fantastic opportunity to once again remind the masses that Prey is incredibly brilliant.
This first-person sci-fi horror has never been held in the same regard as its Arkane brethren, such as Dishonored or, more recently, Deathloop. To us, that’s one of the biggest injustices of gaming, as we don’t just think Prey is as good as those other titles, we think it’s actually best.
