The Official Horror game Thread!! Lets put those headphones to good use! - Page 9

post #121 of 331

SH3 for the PS2 has none of these issues but the HD version does. Textures pop in and out and the audio goes from 5.1 to stereo randomly at times. I've even had it where the fog goes away and the video noise goes away as well. They are both terribly glitchy.. As for SH2, I have the PS2 version and have not had these issues, but the ports have them.. I find it hard that these ports run so badly on the PS3 since the system is so much more powerful than the PS2 was.

 

I just dusted off my PS2 and played Silent Hill 4, which I like the most out of all the games, well not more than the first game. I even played The Thing, Cold Fear, Extermination, The Suffering, Return to Castle Wolfenstein (xbox), among others..

 

I recent'y picked up Clive Barkers Undying and I love it a lot! Quite spooky it is.

Soooo beat SH2, gonna replay and get all endings, "In water" sounds like a very interesting end and I cant believe I have never gotten it before. gonna buy rule of rose and Haunted ground, most likely play Haunted Ground first and cut the tension of

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

rape

 

with the not so horror theme of rule of rose.

I like the part where the dude in the locker moves on you.  That made me jump.

i agree when the manequins started surrounding you and the fact that you were after a serial killer just made it a classic game that i will never forget.. p.s i have just got fallout new vegas ultimate edition and i am over the moon with it...

Got about Half way through SH3.......I don't know why but the Closer's just freak me out like no other.

Not exactly horror but I've been playing The House of The Dead again, the arcade version. There's a local bowling alley that has the first and second games so I go there just to play them ;)

 

I also picked up HOTD3 and 4 for the PS3. The conversion is really good and the graphics looks great. Sony, Sega, bring HOTD 1 & 2 to the PSN! Dump the ROM from the Arcade's main board and emulate it with Move support.

I know this is not horror but i use to do the same a couple of years ago..I would go to my local seaside arcade just to play sega rally 1..Me and my friend would take the dogs for a walk on the beach together and then have a race against each other because it was the two seater cabinet..

Just installed Alan Wake for pc. It's not very frightening so far but man does it look good on the highest settings. The voice acting is pretty mediocre but the sound design is interesting. The camera is weird, not exactely over shoulder nor traditional third person. Doesn't feel natural yet. It's more of an action game as well, where I was expecting survival horror. Still, definitely worth a try.

I hated Alan Wake, but I hate Stephen King as well, and the story very well could have been written by him. Killing things felt like a chore and the hardest difficulty didn't increase the difficulty so much as it just decreased the amount of damage you do and the amount of stuff you get.

 

But the atmosphere was so good at times.

post #135 of 331

Ah, a genre I've always had great interest in. Unfortunately, I've only played both Condemned and Dead Space games. But even those are nice departure from ordinary games. While not terribly frightening, they were good at keeping me on the edge of my chair. Like all games dubbed as scary, I find it most effective to play late at night with no lights, headphones on. Been looking into the FEAR series, but have heard they aren't too scary (then again, opinions have incredible variance in regards to this genre it seems). I also tried to get Amnesia, but it seems my computer doesn't want to make it work, sadly.

 

I will admit though, the scariest game moment I've ever had was from Mirror's Edge. No joke.
