Scary Games: Where Did You Go?

Charlie writes:

"So we live in a generation of the First-Person Shooters, where everything is all explosions, chase scenes and loud noises; Call of Duty, Halo, Killzone, Battlefield, Medal of Honor, and Resistance to name a few. While this may be the generation of the shooter, one thing I have noticed is that we have plenty of racers (Need for Speed, GT, Forza) and we have plenty of RPG's (Skyrim, Assassin's Creed, Fallout) and even plenty of fitness games (Dance Central, Just Dance, Wii Fit, Your Shape), but where did all the scary games go?"

well, i think horror games are starting to rise up with titles like Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, Sacrilegium, Asylum and that Among the Sleep. not only horror games but more games other than FPS need to make a comeback :L

Assassin's Creed is considered a RPG?

r212403d ago

i dont think Assassins Creed is an RPG but i do understand why you chose AC, however, thats one series thats unique compared to the many we had last gen.

Solid_Snake372403d ago

@r21 Yeah, i have all the ACs. I regret nothing.

I will probably get a few disagree's but nothing has scared me and in my opnion scarier than fatal frame. You only have a camera...A camera!

I agree scary games are few and far between but you do get a few gems every once and a while :)

The only scary game this gen in my opinion has been Amnesia but even that was no where near the scares in Fatal Frame.

Solid_Snake372403d ago

I remember playing it on the ps2. Cant say i finished that game...

Scary games are being released on the PC. and some are mods.

The console crowd isn't interested in horror games unless its got a lot of action too, like Dead Space

HarryMasonHerpderp2403d ago

I really do miss horror games we were spoilt for choice in the last two gens and I just don't understand why devs don't make them any more.
There is clearly a market for horror games.
seems that the genre has gone more towards the PC and less the console.

would like a paranormal activity game

Kran2403d ago

Um. I honestly think that would suck considering the paranormal activities are just set in one house.

HarryMasonHerpderp2403d ago

Maybe that's what this "Among The Sleep" game will be like, I hope it turns out to be really good.

We NEED more horror games dammit!


Kran2403d ago

Among the Sleep isn't just set in the house though. I get the feeling it's set more around a town.

ACBAA2403d ago

it doesnt necessary have to be a movie tie in, they can do much if they ever ever consider it
