The Not So Horrifying Truth About Modern Survival Horror

I was saving something like this for Halloween, because that just makes sense. A diatribe about horror themed video games being written in October? Yes, that is what should happen. But damn man, after seeing Silent Hill: Book of Memories, these things must be said now. Video game industry, I just have to ask: why do you not want to scare us anymore?

The only recent survival horror game that is actually scary is Amnesia.

I'd love to get scared by games! But the sad truth is, it just isn't possible anymore. Games aren't even scary. But that's not the devs fault, It's the gamers problems. We're just used to scary stuff now, especially as we age.

I see scary shit all the time in my house and it creeps me out but doesn't scare me.
Like seeing the shape of a small child in the corner of the bathroom when I went to take a piss at night. Or seeing something go behind the corner of my dark hallway. Lately, there's always something creepy happenining at night now.
Why should I be scared of a game, When there's scarier stuff in my own house XD

Most old Survival Horror wasn't particularly scary either. In fact it bordered on being ridiculous comedy. It was just frustrating due to the fixed cameras and the poor controls.

I've enjoyed early Silent Hill, Resident Evil and Fatal Frame games but I can't say I've ever been scared by a video game. Well, with the exception of how crappy the Resistance series is I guess;p
