I couldn't remember if the first game took place the same year it was actually released.... It's so amazing how different and in worse condition the hotel and surrounding areas look in only 8 years!!
I'm playing it now, but since it's so scary, I am only playing when husband is home LOL!!! I'm on vacation this week with plenty of time to play, but since he works nights, he's not home when I'm up and ready to play!!
I played for a couple of hours the other night when he was at work and I kept looking behind me!
