I am a fan of horror. I have watched several movies, and played several games that are centered around the horror genre.
But i find myself no longer affraid of any horror game.
A quick list of games i have played throughout my life in the horror genre:
Resident evil 2 was my first horror game.
Resident evil outbreak.
Silent hill 3 the clock tower.
F.E.A.R. 1 2 and 3.
And finally this new game that looks cheaply made called pineview drive.
I also played F.N.A.F. but i got tired of it since all you do is sit in a chair closing doors and turning on lights, cameras and such. It scared me a little bit but.... not enough.
As far as movies go:
Texas chainsaw massacre the original.
The hills have eyes.
I know what you did last summer.
The omen 2006.
And several others.... even that poltergeist film back 2 or 3 years ago. Where the kid actually got pulled into the underworld and the old dude went inside to find and save her.
But they just do not scare me anymore. I can tell when some is going to die, or is not going to die in films....
But when it comes to games like resident evil 6, or now resident evil 7..... they lost their touch of fear and put it into guns.
Now pineview drive gives you 0 weapons and only a flashlight... i have to say pineview drive is indeed a much more scary game than resident evil 7. I have been doing a lets play series on it since it launched on ps4. And so far i find this cheapo game to be much scarier than resident evil 7. Because it is a psychological horror game than an action horror game.
I have played amnesia, and slender man and they pale in comparison to this games sense of horror.
Amnesia just has you running around collecting papers that tells you that you are the killer. Slenderman has something that warps around following you everywhere you go. But pineview drive.... has a ghost that warps statues, moves objects, loves thunderstorms, and walks right through you as you travel through the house.
But why is it that a 30 dollar pos scares me much more than these supposed tripple A titles? I watched others play resident evil 7... and i failed to be scared even once.
I play a game like fatal frame and honestly i am terrified. Even siren was terrifying on the ps3. Letting you see where the enemies were walking by looking through their eyes was scary. So... i just wonder what the hell happened to the horror games and movies industry... i can't even watch horror films anymore. I already know who is going to die, and who is going to stay alive just by looking at them, and what their personality is all about. In games it is the same.
Why are scary games not scary anymore?
