Jump scare !
Ok I'm sitting here watching the very cheesy but still good film stay alive which for those who havent seen it is about a video game where the death in the game is how they die in reality and watching the game I'm still thinking damn I want to play a game like that.
I really have the urge to play a decent horror game, not one all about how much blood they can throw at the screen or one about giving you so many guns theres no tension as you can blast everything out of the way.
So I looked up on play.com what horror games were on 360 and I'm sitting here wondering what the hell, last generation I remember playing call of cthulhu and being freaked out just in the opening section, and hearing how there were other amazing horror titles I even remember the suspence of playing "the Thing"
This generation seems devoid other than zombie shooters (and yes I'm talking about Dead space too as they are almost zombies too).
out of the play.com list theres very few on there but only Deadly prmonition really seemed to peak my intrest. The others like Condemed (which I've heard is suspenseful) just don't feel like theres any appeal.
I know Decay on the indie marketplace is meant to be good but again not quite what I meant so much.
I also know about Rise of nightmares coming out soon.
But are there really any really good horror games out there that aren't just heres lots of ammo now fight the zombies, or on the flip side, giving you nothing and getting you to try and survive.
So any one have any suggestions for good horror games that have atleast some decent scare factor ?
With all the new technology including games like Stuntman and Brink channelling audio to the headset how come horror games really haven't kept going and managed to bring the new technology into them and kept going as strong as they were before ?
As evidence of how much the genre has died it doesn't even have a genre listing on the 360 genre search for the marketplace.
