To me DOOM 3 wasn't even scary at all. I beat it in one sitting.

I didn't find Catherine scary at all. If you want scary/creepy then look to Amy, it's a darn good game.

Catherine was one of my favorites last year. Heck, one of my all-time favorites. Good, humorous writing? Relationships? Moral dilemmas? Multiple endings? Butt-monsters? Shin Megami Tensei references?

 

My kinda game.

I can think of little more frightening than being locked in a relationship you despise for the rest of your life.

 

Really though, Catherine wasn't supposed to be "BOO! BLAAARG!" scary. It invoked more subtle, social horrors in the form of tension-building gameplay.

I loved those games. Well, 1 and 2 anyways. I've lost interest in JRPGs but PE1 was always different. PE2 was amazing but it was compared to RE2 too much for some reason.

I felt it was very similar to RE2. It had team members from the prototype version of RE2 working on it, so that maybe why!

I can see the similarities for sure but combat was very different. The stories were similar'ish but I always felt there was enough distinction between them that made it slightly unfair. 

 

Though at the end, both had you up against so sort of giant blob thing be it the pink Staypuft thing or William.

Amnesia, a machine for pigs should be fairly interesting. They say it`s supposed to be way more scary than the first game. Hope it will live up to expectation

Hopefully... I didn't find the Dark Descent to be very scary, but my friend lost his mind when he played it. Interested to see how he reacts when playing the new one.

 

Dead Space was scarier than Amnesia, but still not that scary. I haven't played a very scary game since DOOM 1 and 2.

Amnesia loses its scares ones you realize that for most of the game, there's just you and the dark.

post #25 of 303

it had some nice suspension to it, but I was never really scared either. Best attempt I have played so far tbh. 

The penumbra series is supposed to be scary aswell, but haven`t tried it myself so can`t really say much more than that. 

Key thing is with horror games is that you have to be in the right kind of mood. Let yourself dwell in it so immersion factor is much higher. Good sound, shut off the lights, and just focus. It usually works, if not, take some shrooms or light it up. lol

I do too. DOOM 1 and 2 are not scary at all. They are quite humorous to me.

 

Dead Space made made me crap myself more than once, especially in the med lab area where the main lights go out and some pulsating lights go on. All hell breaks loose in there.. To many times have I crapped myself in that game.

This. I mean the monsters are broad casted so aggressively I found it hard to not avoid the monster. Searching room for item, Oh noes the monster coming after you, Keep searching the room. Monster walks in on opposite side of the room, follow it around the room keeping to it's back, it leaves, music stops, I leave.

I can understand him a bit. Amnesia to me wasn't scary at all. I don't like the feeling of helplessness there from the start but rather a build up of it. Silent Hill is a great example. Sure you have a gun but teh deeper into the game you get, the more the town itself screws with you leaving you to feel insignificant. For me, I prefer that over the straight anxiety Amnesia had to offer. 

 

As far as Dead Space goes, I loved both games but never found them scary. I jumped once or twice but the fear wasn't really there for me. And Doom... finding a portal to Hell on Mars is an odd plot. I could never take it seriously.

Hmm. my friend must have edited the post while I went to the bathroom..

It should be

Amnesia was scarier that DOOM 1 and 2, but still not that scary. I haven't played a very scary game since Dead Space.

 

Sorry bout that
