A list of 6 horror games we would like to see on Next Gen consoles (PS4 and Xbox One).
I would like for the heart rate technology in Kinect 2.0 to be in a horror game. Can you imagine playing a horror game based on your heart rate? If your heart rate is normal, then monsters will sneak up on you trying to scare you. If your heart is beating fast, your character will panic and struggle to use a weapon. Plus the monsters can take full advantage of this in many ways. To get your character out of panic mode hide somewhere. There should be something called a fear meter that detects your character's level of fear. If the fear meter reach up to max, then the control of the character would be taken away from you, forcing you into a unscripted quick time event that can happen at anytime. Your character will be chased by a monster in this quick time event as you press the right buttons to avoid the monster. Your character is in uncontrollable fear when this happens, so your force to hope for your character's survival. This helps to give you that intense fear of not being in control. Sometimes quicktime events won't happen, and your force to depend on the your character's A.I. to find a hiding spot to get out of panic. Let just say there is a skill tree involve like Luck for example. If you had a lot of Luck points the A.I. has a good chance of surviving. Plus the Xbox One controller vibration can be put to great use. If game developers can come up with something like this, then we are in for true horror. What you guys think of this idea?
Wow! That actually sounds very good! I myself had some idea's too. Searching for ghosts in your house with the PS Vita augmented reality. Hearing whispers through the PS4 controller. But the heart rate technology could become a very cool feature for horror games indeed! (Race games and shooters could use this tech too offcourse, anything that can get hectic and tence)
