YMMV / Gray Matter

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Robert Holmes, natch. His band, the Scarlet Furies, also produced vocal themes for the game.
  • Disappointing Last Level: The end segment is noticeably rushed in its pacing and quite heavy on Solve the Soup Cans puzzles compared to the rest of the game. And to top it off, The Reveal is pretty underwhelming.
  • Informed Deformity: David's scars don't really seem bad enough to force him to wear a mask or to cause Sam's terrified reaction.
    • Justified - Word of God confirms that David is suffering from Body Dismorphia due to psychological trauma.
  • Squick: Items that David brings into his isolation tank include Laura's swimsuit. One can only imagine what else he is bringing in there, or what other memories he is trying to relive. Or how often he cycles the water in that thing.
  • Wangst: You're hit with a case of this hard in David's first chapter, where every hotspot causes him to mourn his deceased wife and you quickly learn she's his been his one and only focus for the past three years. Of course, it later turns out that Laura really is haunting him. But in a good way.
