if you haven't played silent hill or the condemned series, then you will quite a marathon few nights.

mike_d_4646d ago

I'd have to agree with you there perfectly!! Especially playing Condemned 1 with the surround wayyy up and the lights off.I constantly play and spin in circle because i keep hearing things behind me.It will definitely scare your pants off!

sparta764647d ago

Fatal frame was insane!!!!!! Number one for me..

Beastradamus4647d ago

I just got a 360 to go with my PS3 and Alan Wake was one of the first games. I really liked the game but I was also really frustrated when the night-time woods levels would just drag on and on. Story-wise though I'd put Alan Wake right up there with the Silent Hill games.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is quite scary. It's only $4 on Steam right now :-D

Mottsy4647d ago

Alan wake definitely had its OH SHIZZLE moments! and i thought it was a well done game! but i remember playing eternal darkness when i was younger and that game definitely required a few cartoons afterwards before i could go to sleep XD

mike_d_4646d ago

Yea Alan Wake was a GREAT game!! and it definitely caused sweaty palms and taking a break every 15 bcuz that game was intense and frightening!

EA Japan Exec Criticises Japanese Ratings Board

An executive of Electronic Arts Japan has criticised the Japanese video game ratings board for allowing upcoming action game Stellar Blade to be released uncensored while EA's own Dead Space was banned in the country.

CrimsonWing6987d ago

He’s got a point. If a game is M-Rated, which is the equivalent of an R rating, I don’t get why you need to censor anything. The rating is the indicator of the content and the age appropriate. If it’s appropriate for adults… why treat them like children? 🤷‍♂️

Eonjay87d ago (Edited 87d ago )

This is about gore... not about anything sexual. And specifically I think it is about the realistic depiction of gore. Unfortunately I don't know the nuance of the CERO board or how it is relevant their specific culture (as a prohibition on gore may transcend age) so I hesitate to make a statement. Can anyone else provide insight to what kind of gore is considered unacceptable?

CrimsonWing6987d ago (Edited 87d ago )

Yea, I know this is about gore, but thanks for pointing that out.

My point still stands, if a game is essentially rated for a mature audience then why censor for them as if they’re too young to view it? Makes no sense.

To answer your question: Decapitation, dismemberment, like… anything gore. They have been censoring that since CERO was established. Look up RE4 chainsaw decapitation or any MK games that made it there.

EA Japan? Wtf never heard of that

ZwVw87d ago

Yet, the Oneechanbara series (y'know, the game with half-naked samurai females slicing up zombies to bloody pieces) get released in Japan uncensored.

The CERO ratings board is an equilibrium.

Smellsforfree86d ago

This confuses me since I've seen so many gory Japanese movies and anime. For example, Battle Royale.

definitely has a point.

but .. its japan. are we really surprised?

VersusDMC87d ago

I don't know if the EA executive is going off the one close up of an arm being cut off in the demo. Maybe it's uncensored because it's the arm of a cyborg or it doesn't happen that often (didn’t see EVE dismemberment when killed in the demo) .

In the states there's a certain amount of swear words allowed to a PG13 movie before it is deemed R. So maybe it's the same in Japan for gore?

Eonjay87d ago

Yes I think you may be on to something. The violence is gory but I wouldn't call it gruesome.

Retroman87d ago

Ea Japan please make Knack 3
in the future

Eonjay87d ago (Edited 87d ago )

Does EA Japan actually make games at all? Or are they just a regional publisher?

Retroman86d ago

I'm sorry Japan Studio made Knack

Honestly i believe it was mainly as retaliation for the original devs breaking off and making colisto protocol. They've done this a few times, ignoring fan demands for the return of a belived ip until someone does it for them, then they retaliate by only then announcing an entry. Colisto protocol was announced and EA announced the remake shortly after, Session finally hit consoles and skate 4 was announced, shortly after Undisputed was shown off, talks started happening about a new fight night.

ZeekQuattro93d ago

I agree. Reminds me of when Inafune announced Mighty No.9 and the initial reaction of the game industry was that of celebration and suddenly Capcom said ohh shit we need to announce Mega Man 11. 😆 Still waiting for MM12 & the next X title.
