The Evil Within is gruesome, intense and surreal | GameZone preview

GameZone writes, 'The Evil Within has managed to generate quite a buzz since Bethesda and developer Tango Gameworks released the cinematic trailer for the game a few weeks back.

All these years and I'm still waiting for this so called survival horror genre to be invented. This may do it, but it remains to be seen. I've played so many of these types of games and none of them has so much as giving me goosebumps. Just a lot of noise (or lack thereof) and silly jump-at-you enemies.
I liked RE6, at least they kept it real and got rid of all that "survival horror" LMFAO...

Well on that front, yes. But I've never been scarred when playing any game that was supposed to be this way. I've played it all, at night and day with volume on/off doesn't matter.
Now, I've seen some movies that were creepy and scary, but I've yet to find that game experience on any platform. This includes PC's

curious what movies u find creepy or scary? And to that effect why did u find them creepy or scary? Did you put urself in the characters shoes? Why cant u do that in a game? I cant seem to feel scared for any so called horror movie these days. Only game that has made me feel any kind of fear was resident evil 2. Original RE as well.
