EA: Dead Space single-player too scary

EA's research has suggested many things about the Dead Space series that are revealing about it, but the revelation of it being scary it not surprising at all. So why make it less scary? (Dead Space, EA, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

EA talking out their ass as usual.

i know, Typical of them. about half way in my first dead space 2 playthrough it stopped being scary, once you've gotten used to all the stuff jumping on the screen and the loud music it starts to get tedious.

Its not EA talking out there ass, well it could be, could be not. They said they did their research more than likely from focus group testing and those are the people that said it was too scary, not EA.

I've done plenty of focus testing, the goal of EA is just to try and get the product out to even more people. Its just simply business.

I bought Dead Space one the day it came out. It's one helluvah scary game and I love it. I personally wouldn't have changed a thing, well maybe except how it has to sync trophies before you play, but I don't run EA.

Dead space 1 and 2 weren't scary at all.
I only played them for the gore.
The classic resident evils had something dead space never did, the one thing that made them scary at all.
PIANO!

It's funny how so many people out there think the classic resident evils are scary because of the survival aspects, the don't even know that what actually gets them nervous is staring them right in the face, or should I say ear :)

Nope, just sensationalist headlines twisting what was actually said.

Thank you! Finally someone speaks logically!

Between sensational headlines and the comments I can't stop myself from reading on this site, gamers irritate me more and more every day.
crock7owu10  +   1076d ago
Yep. I saw this game at E3 and it is still pretty damn scary. I mean I ended up needing my second pair of pants.

Some would say:

Not nearly enough.

But there are moments which.... can brutally scar you :P ...... needle in the eye..... gah... :l

I'm not buying DS3 since EA made it play like Gears of War instead of keeping the franchise original

To who, the middle aged mothers they had in those awful Dead Space commercials....

Have they played Amnesia or Slender? Now those are scary games, DS was scary but they are losing their touch.
Rhezin  +   1075d ago
todays population is too desensitizied. It's all gratuitous violence and gore, not enough suspense and thrill. Quit watching Saw and final destination then maybe something actually might frighten you! That's the problem, we've seen it all!

Why don't companies have the balls to say it as it is. I would respect them alot more if they said "We are changing it because we want more sales out of everyone."

Have to agree with Them Bones about that theme. It still gives that sense of dread that's for sure.
