Realm of Gaming's Greg Knoll has come up with a list of 7 scary games that have been released within the last year.
what? since where bioshock 2, heavy rain, resident evil 5, dead rising 2 scary? haven't played the others so i can't speak for those but the games are listed were not scary
Every game in that list would have to be played alone in the dark to be scary except Heavy Rain. Heavy Rain does not give me the chills at all whatsoever. I do sometimes panic especially when my controller goes "loco" but other than that, I can never really say it made my heart throb like Resident Evil 5 or Left 4 Dead. Anyway, where's Left 4 Dead? Did the author not play the game?
Actually (*SPOILERS*) in the one DLC mission. " The taxidermist" where you are playing as Madison, sneaking into the house and then trying to scape without being found by the killer was pretty intense/heart raising and i did get a sense of fear. :P
Heavy Rain is an investigation story. What's scary about it? I haven't playd Bioshock 2 but the first one had some pretty scary moments. Resi 5 is last year. Alan Wake, haven't tried it yet but looks scary. It's supposed to, afterall.
Alan Wake is definitly scary. But when you're after all the pages etc in the second, or third or fourth playthrough, you know what to expect. Still kinda scary.
I didn't think Heavy Rain was scary
Amnesia takes it for scary, while i was playing my heart was beating fast and my palms sweated the whole time. Awesome game.
Amnesia is the only game there that is truly scary. Dead Rising 2 is almost comical, and Heavy Rain had nothing scary about. Intense maybe, but not scary.
I wish more people would play it. Very unique.
Though it's just my opinion, it's all just fake and for fun. I've never been scared from a game or movie.
I found Limbo pretty creepy and dark, perhaps not scary but has heaps more atmosphere than half the games on that list!
How is Heavy Rain even remotely scary ?? Anyways,I loved Bioshock 2 but I didn't find it scary (unlike the first which had a few chilling enemies),and Alan Wake has the atmosphere but it gets too repetitive to be scary.Dead Rising 2 is another horror-comedy,it's not meant to scare.I've heard a lot about Amnesia,and from the gameplay vids I've seen,it's probably the only true horror listed here.
RE5 scary???!!?? :D :D :D
