Slender Arrives - Are We Still Scared?

"There may be a plethora of games inspired by the Slender Man mythos out there but perhaps the most popular (and the original) is Slender: The Eight Pages, which was developed by Parsec Productions. Released last June, The Eight Pages inspired developers and kick-started the trend of Slender Man games which has seen many clones."

TheSixthAxis goes hands-on with Parsec's latest - Slender: The Arrival. (PC, Slender: The Arrival)

I don't think there is a place for Slenderman anymore, it was just a fun craze and now it's over. It's like Temple Run and Draw Something, they were two of the most popular games last year who plays them anymore?

I never did play Slender. Is it worth checking out?

I'm also guilty of owning but still not trying Amnesia.

Amnesia is better.

buy some depends, cause Amnesia is going to act like a laxative.

@cyborg47 & adorie

Looks like my gaming plate is down to Hitman and Amnesia so I'll prolly give Amnesia a whirl tonight.

I do miss real horror games.

Slender is of course relevant it is not everyday that something comes along and revitalizes the horror game genre. Slender was terrifying...the sense of vulnerability the sense of inevitable doom...at least in Amnesia you had a lantern and doors to hide behind...Slender you just survive for as long as possible. I think Slender could be a horror contender for years to come if done right.
