Apparently I'm very brave... I've finished Outlast, RE7, Silent Hill 2 and Alien: Isolation... Well... Not Alien: Isolation... But only because of a bug that's broken my game and I have to restart from like mission 15 or something... >:( But if that hadn't happened, I would have finished it...
Still, Alien: Isolation is the scariest game I've ever played... I've never had to sing "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming." to myself except in Isolation and Outlast... That's it. Even SH2 & 3 don't scare me as much...
Halloween is totally a holiday though =| Forbidden Siren is the only game I ever owned that I never finished, it freaked me out so much (and the level with the slow old man and slow AF shotgun was so annoying) that I just sold it =| some days I'm tempted to try again, but then I just go "hmm, Naaaaa."
I still remember renting the first Silent Hill game (yes, Blockbuster - remember them? - actually rented out Playstation games at one time!) and playing it at home... alone... in the dark... oh the mistakes we make in life!
SH2 ruined me. I was playing it and got to a part where you have to descend this staircase that seemingly goes on forever. Like I swear it took 5-10 minutes at least to go down it. During which a creepy foghorn blares out occasionally, the walls seem to move ever so slightly almost as if the hallway is breathing and the atmosphere gets somehow hotter as if you are walking straight down into hell. When I finally hit the door at the bottom of the stairs I had to turn off the game for the day. There was just no physical way I could continue.
I generally don't play horror games but im 15 now so when i waz 14 I was like hey I wanna maybe try one so i chose outlast. OMG I WAS TERRIFIED that game is awful (in a good way) but i did somehow beat it in like 3 days (3 days after I sat in the basement section for about a week)
I normally don't get scared during any games. Got jump scared during Until Dawn because of a freaking raccoon or something in a cupboard because i was so focused on something possibly being in the dark, i didn't think something would be in there. Freaking hate jump scares
Nice call with Silent Hill! I thought I was brave enough to try Paranormal Activity on PSVR! Man, was I wrong. Absolute paralyzing terror! Fear of the unknown and all that. It may have ruined standard horror games for me, but plenty more horror titles on the VR! Wish me luck!
You should do a video on games you had to take a short break from because of all the jump scares. I completed Until Dawn, but I admit I had to pause it a couple of times just to calm down a bit xD I resisted putting the light on though! :P
I'm surprised that you didn't mention Chapter 5: The Forsaken in Thief 2014. That's pretty much the only time I was scared in a video game. I've played Outlast, RE7, and Amnesia and I didn't find their scare factor troublesome at all. I guess we all have different things that scare us.
All these games aren't scary at all. Res E 7 starts great, but it changes alot in delivery midway through the game. Outlast and alien is more psyc suspense. All the other ones the graphics are too unrealistic to feel apart of it
I used to hate horror , everything. Games, movies, everything. Then i played resident evil 7, enjoyed it somehow, then proceeded to beat all the outlasts in the course of two month... horror games can have allot of depth to them, especially outlast 2 if you read the documents throughout the games. Or, ive just lost my mind. Maybe both.
How is Halloween not a holiday? Also it's objectively better than Christmas, which is only good cuz it gives presents.
Halloween you have a great lore to it pretty much and a culture of things that are perfect for it.
What does Christmas have? A few movies.
Anyway I only bought Resident Evil 7 on ps4 instead of pc because of the vr aspect. I have PSVR and a gaming pc so VR was a huge thing over raw power. Anyway I used to be terrified of horror movies and games, now I think I'm fine with them after playing horror games in VR (which made traditional horror games out of vr not as scary)
I am a bit intimidated by difficulty in horror games though.
