The world of video games has featured so many great horror/survival-horror titles, which have stained the underwear of many gamers over the years, with most of them surprisingly coming from the previous era of consoles.
Horror games are sadly a thing of the past.
errr YEAH no shit they have other than the pc exclusive Amnesia theres nothing like there used to be :(
Is this guy living in the past? LMAFAO... horror games dropped the quality since a long time ago..
Think back to when you played games like resident evil 1&2 and silent hill 1&2, what was the one thing these games had that current gen horror games dont? Atmosphere, it was little things like the right piece of music playing at the right time. They had a brooding, dark atmosphere that current gen games are sorely laking.
It sucks big time. I'm a massive horror fan an ive played nothing this gen that compares to the old classics like resident evil,silent hill and fatal frame.The closest game ive been to being scared was amnesia and that wasn't as scary as the classics last gen in my opinion.The only thing i had to look forward to was silent hill HD collection and we all know how that's turned out >_> I just hope that developers can stop thinking about money all the time and create something truly scary again for us horror fans.
Quite the contrary: that standards of people have gone up. Games that were considered to be scary or even classics are now just looking bland. If one were to play old Resi, SH or Alone in the dark games they will notice that something is "missing". Although Fatal Frame 2 still gives me the creeps...
The article doesn't say anything other than 'horror games were good then, bad now'. You just list games you like, and games you don't, and never ask yourself why.
