Dead Space remains one of the most beloved horror games ever made. Now with its tenth anniversary here, let’s dive in and find out why.
We will never see another dead space again... thanks EA
I wonder who owns the rights to Dead Space. I know the dev that made them (Visceral Studios) went belly up. Id love to see a next gen Dead Space. Those games were so much fun. The 1st 1 is prob my fav
I'm surprised Microsoft didn't buy visceral studios. No idea how much it would of cost but we know they can make amazing single player games. dead space is easily in my top 5 fav games of all time
Probably my favorite game of that generation.
relevant? mkay. i don‘t think so. the world moved on since then.
Dead Space 1 & 2 are up there with the best games of last gen, and they're still extremely enjoyable to play through today. The first game is 10 years old and it's still coming up in stories every now and again here so it's obviously still relevant to a lot of people.
I generally don't like horror or horror games, but playing Dead Space a couple of years after release was a relevation. At the core it is a survival deep sci-fi game with a conspiracy strewn all across it, it's Alien crossed with The Thing. By the second game you begin to understand that you have no idea who to trust and who's in on Unitology and who isn't. The puzzles are nothing short of amazing using antigravity, kinesis and statis. The mechanic of strategic dismemberment didn't always work and by cutting off the wrong set of limbs you could actually make the Necromorphs faster and more agile and animal-like. Heck, even Extraction was a brilliant game and that was an on rails lightgun spinoff. I am really sad the series ended where it did, because as a third person shooter, it was certainly something special and something even I don't believe EA will keep sitting in a vault forever. Because Dead Space VR? I think that's the terrifying and logical next move for this franchise.
Please no not vr. I love dead space 1+2 it does not need gimmicks just leave the formula as it is, all it needs is a good story behind it New enemies (not the likes of dead space 3) if fact let's just pretend dead space 3 did not happen at all.
I didn't see the big deal with this game, no disrespect just my opinion but another 'scary' game that did very little for me.
That's ok lol. Each to their own. It's a similar thing with me and resident evil 4. Admittedly I didn't play it till many years after release but I just didn't enjoy it.
Maybe you moved on, Deadspace is still relevant. But with EA no chance, the sheep will carry on buying FIFA. So quality titles get scrapped. Dante’s inferno was another gem that EA decided to axe.
Dante's Inferno deserved another chance. EA just doesn't understand the value of singleplayer games. Look at AC: Odyssey from Ubisoft. It's literally their fastest selling title in the franchise and it's a singleplayer title with optional MTX's. I love what I've played of it this far and still have a lot left to do. EA just wants the fast money at this point. It was very evident with how they made DS3.
Relevant to what?
Played all 3 Dead Space games but never finished any of them.I would definitely buy a trilogy remaster,why EA hasn't done this yet is beyond me knowing they have no other interesting games in their roster but Battlefield,Fifa & sport games.
I feel it's too early for a remaster. but definitely at some point I would like to revisit the first two games
I wish EA would remaster them and add VR
One of the best games last gen and still one of my favorites today! If anything, this needs to be picked up and remastered in 4k. It still looks pretty damn good. I recently played it on my ps3 with an Lg oled 4k tv and it looked very good!
Still have to play the third one, but part 2 was perfect for me at the time.
The third one wasn't actually half bad to be quite honest. Don't go looking for the horror elements in it though. Something about the co-op took it out, but it still had the Dead Space DNA altogether and still kept that sense of horror-survival while leaning more into the action-horror genre. Definitely recommend giving it a shot.
Couldn't get into these. Didn't find them scary either
I don't like horror games, to be honest, but this one was my first and my most beloved to this day.
We need more games like this.
Loved 1 & 2, finally played and finished 3 a few months back - glad I did. Wasn't on par with the first two, but I still enjoyed the hell out of it, warts and all. At least remaster it and give us the best versions possible before leaving the carcass to rot.
I love the franchise I even went out of my way to grab Dead Space for the Wii maybe a bit ugly on a HD tv with a Wii but I had fun playing it. Pretty shitty EA killed the franchise and killed the studio I wish they would just auction off the franchise I would like to see what Capcom could do with Dead Space if they had the franchise.
Such a shame. The first 2 titles are my favourite horror games to date.
Found a bit boring never finished em.
