Why Is No One Making AAA Horror Games Anymore?

Saif from eXputer inquires, "Despite the everlasting popularity of the genre, why hasn't there been a good AAA horror game in a while now?"

Jin_Sakai30d ago

Because the gaming industry is obsessed with live service games.

Because he touches himself at night to characters like lady Dimitrescu.

You're the one still thinking about her

Did I give away your secret? It's okay, if you sit on your hand and numb it, you can pretend it's her playing with your little stick.

Good for me, I have no interests in horror games

Even when they do it's first person trying to copy Outlast, Five Nights, P.T etc

I think the Dead Space / RE2 / RE4 Remake and the Evil Within 2 showed you can have a good story based, third person survival horror game.

remakes is another good reason

Calisto Protocol was also fun with fantastic presentation.

I feel like we haven't had much in the way of horror games for years, I think it became rare after the PS2/PS3 gen. Maybe i'll pick up that Crow Country that recently came out, that looks good.

Crow Country needs some more love.. and more exposure

Because outside of a fee games, most don't sell that well

Crows9030d ago

So in other words...AAA publishers don't have creativity or passion for games.

Didn’t we have Dead Space Remake and Resident Evil 4 Remake last year?

Among others

And isn't Dying Light 2 a horror game?

Scissorman30d ago

And Alan Wake 2 and Alone in the Dark.

I like Alone in the dark but it's not AAA game

We also had The Quarry and The Dark Pictures The Devil In Me.
