Post: RE: Would prefer a silent protagonist. [spoilers]

SOMA is nearly perfect the way it is, it relies on a voiced protagonist and wouldn't work without it. Likewise I wouldn't change this aspect of Amnesia or Penumbra either.

Strange list with the classic Thief games which have very little in the way of story, and an odd lack of Penumbra. I have: Spoiler below! #10 - Fallout: New Vegas - Lonesome Road #09 - Sta...

Post: RE: Things you like and hate in Horror Games.

I don't hate anything in Penumbra and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. I hate unoriginal settings, writing, and scares, like Outlast. I hate overly linear and oversimplified level design/gameplay, like Ou...

Uh, Frictional Games should stick to what they do best. It should be more like Penumbra and Amnesia: The Dark Descent, hopefully with writing on par with Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. It won't be any...

Post: RE: What other scary games are there? (for PC)

Metro 2033 isn't really much of a horror game, and it doesn't try to be. It is an excellent survival and first person adventure game with a good story though. Don't expect to be scared when playing it...

I agree, nearly every game released in the past 5+ years is either mediocre or crap with only a few exceptions. The following are the only ones that stand out to me (on PC at least). - Amnesia: The D...

The only other good horror game I've found that seems like it would scare people is Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason. Dead Space 1/2 are jokes... mindless shooters and nothing more. This applies to Doom, R...

Post: RE: Blog: "Best of 2011"

I found 2011 to be a poor year for gaming overall. Only one game stood out as being great, and that's Skyrim but even then I think it's a bit overrated. I didn't try Batman: Arkham City, since Arkham ...

The scariest creature out of all of these are the Brutes in my opinion. The music that plays when ones around also adds to it. Priceless!

Impressive. I'm glad to see the game noticed like that. To be honest, Amnesia and Penumbra are some of the only great games in the last 5 years or even more. Mostly everything else is crap, and horror...
