Horror games in the recent past have seen an almost relentless recycling of the same concepts over and over again which has resulted in gamers all around turning a sore eye to even new launches.
Wait seriously? Did you not play the P.T demo? Also the list is 15 pages. Don't waste time here
You mean to say two good horror games cannot co-exist. Okay.
Read the title
Just like your journalism can't exist, making truths out of fabrications
You've played both then, Big_Game_Hunters? You realize P.T. wasn't even a game, first of all? And that it's not representative of Silent Hills, as they've hinted it won't play like that? Not sure what you're on about, honestly.
@Enemy: No no no. You're doing it all wrong! We OBVIOUSLY all need to beat each other senseless in arguments over which is scarier. Do you not know nothing about the interwebz?!?!?!!?1
Came on here to say the same thing played 30 mins of it and gave in I'm weak I know!!
P.T is just that a demo, it has no impact on what game they are making and actually no game has actually been announced official, the title says potential it says nothing about it being the best, but the article has a point, this is the first time a horror game has had this sort of setup most horror games are linear, this is a new step, it could possibly be the step to where horror games should go, you can't put P.T against a game which has already been announced, when P.T is a puzzle game with scares an impossible puzzle game at that, which was designed for that purpose, cannot wait for WHAT Silent Hills offers but in terms of what we know (because we know nothing of Silent Hills which could be just another linear horror game) then Until Dawn for me is a step in the right direction for the horror genre. just remember the title never suggests the writer believes it is the next best thing, just that it has potential.
The title should be "15 reasons why hyping games is bad"
Oh its one of THOSE articles where they cant just put the fukn list on one page, they instead want 15 clicks a person. Thanks for the heads up, will avoid the article now.
Not having any characters that I care about instantly make it one of the lowest horror games for me, if I don't care about what happens to my character/characters, why should the horrors ahead worry me? P.T was interesting, seeing as I didn't see Normans face until the end, I was a voiceless, faceless person, that was me strangely enough, clever trick indeed.
Um.... You haven't played it so how can you say you don't care about them?
Mate, look at the gameplay video, teenage horror stereotypes, the kind I can't wait to watch get killed in typical horror films. I don't need to play this to know where it's going, not all that excited for it at all, but I do look forward to killing these people in horrible ways, love myself a good gore fest.
It'll be a fun game, but please don't oversell it. This is going to be an interactive B horror movie with branching storylines. While that may sound incredible to people like me, who love these types of games, it won't be the best horror game of the generation. I guarantee it.
15 pages for 15 reasons and a sensationlist title? LOL Nothing worth seeing here folks.
It does nothing for me from everything I've seen so far. If I was to liken PT to a movie it would've been David Lynch's Inland Empire. It was strange and experimental, it treated me like an adult and didn't condescend to me for fear that I might decide it 'sux' and pick up something easier to grasp and shallower. From what I've seen of this I'd liken it to the kind of cheesy lame cash-in Hollywood 'horror' starring punchable looking 18 year olds that you see dumb kids commenting 'Omg luks to scarey!!!' Under the trailer and you just want to go on a killing spree of your own. Maybe it's self aware enough to play off the old horror cliches in an interesting way but from what I've seen so far it just looks like the game equivalent of the latest idiotic tween popcorn horror flick.
I kinda believe it.Even though it looks kinda hipster all slasher and stuff but it's got the butterfly effect which has me intrigued.I think it's the first horror game ever to have choices that differ with each playthrough. BUT THEN AGAIN,are u freaking kidding me there's SILENT HILLS!
9 months in and we have a contender for top (insert daily genre) game of this generation! Such foresight. Wow.
Been waiting for a game like this for years, really excited to play this!
Personally I can't see how people can make these bogus claims about how GREAT a game will be they don't even know JACK SHIT about.
what a joke of an article im sensing a big sony bias here. It goes Evil within>alien isolation> 50 feet of crap> until dawn
