games in the past never scared me, games now dont scary, same for movies, its fake why should i be scared? i die in every game why should i be scared just because the game says i should be scared? I am more likely to be killed in an online cod match by a 12 year old camper than i am in dead space 2 and hard mode. so why be scared?

i understand atmosphere, blahblahblah but it doesnt work for me. when i play horror games I just hope for the gameplay to be fun which deadspace 2 and resident evil 5 do great in. scare factor is normally zero for me atleast
