One aspect of the gaming industry that is shit imo



  • @gndo:

    So, to be clear, you don’t like homecoming?

    Anyways, what I don’t like is how majority of games these days are simplified and made easier. Like todays generation of gamers can’t cope anymore. Games used to be much more challenging.

    Yes Homecoming is so bad man. Its bad because they updated the old Silent Hill 1 and 2 gameplay to something more modern, which imo doesn’t fit at all Silent Hill series tbh.

    And, since people see homecoming gameplay as a upgrade over the older Silent Hill, we will probably never have any game like old Silent Hill, which is a shame imo as that gameplay has proven itself to be a crucial element in the whole horror aspect of the game.

    Not only that, as creativity as well. I mean SH 2 was so fucking elaborated, the (sort of spoiler) fact that you couldn’t never tell what is a hallucination of James or what is actually real (end of spoiler tbh), the environment reflecting this as you progress through the game… Not to mention the monsters design, fucking genius tbh.

    Homecoming is bland as fuck compared to SH 2, I mean why the fuck have sexy nurses in Homecoming, what the fuck is pyramid head doing there, what is this cult shit that I don’t give a fuck, goddamn devs copied the movie, and the movie was bad beyond belief plot wise. They could have done amazing things with this series but no, fuck all that, lets be lazy and make easy money using a strong name for a weak game/movie.

    Silent Hill 2 challenge is stupid in my opinion lmao, puzzles are full of fuck, combat is DW levels of bad (although it does have absolute FHF, SH2 more b0lonce then chiv??), what I like more about this game is the atmosphere, how good the whole game develops as you progress, and the fear factor. Although the challenge also adds to that as well, the game is kinda difficult when you see it as a whole.

    I mean, you are in this place:

    When you start to hear pyramid head walking fast towards you, you can’t see him (well in the picture you can, but its because he is already at your face raping you in that pic) because 1) its dark, 2) Weird ass camera angles. Not to mention the crazy sound design in general. Everything fits perfectly, if the gameplay was fluid and the camera worked as expected, this whole part wouldn’t be that scary.

    I don’t know, Team Silent did a fucking miracle with that game



  • @Vanguard:

    Amnesia is shit

    Bitch please. Better than some console third person fog simulator.

    I mean I get your point regarding old formula, but I would argue that Amnesia, SOMA, Alien: Isolation, hell even Outlast (although fuck that game, not even remotely scary) STILL make really good horror games despite all following the “go hide in the corner” gameplay concept.



  • SH2 was great because it was so trippy. Gameplay was pretty awful though.

    AHAHSHAHHAH fog simulator is gud

    Idk man, I find rather hard to like Amnesia its so fucking boring all those wall of text everywhere and tbh, the story didn’t sound that interesting, neither the characters, neither the environment (repetitive as fuck imo that castle). It is panic inducing though I have to admit that.

    While gud old Silent Hill, very little wall of texts, they are interesting, I would like to make group sex with James and Maria and Pyramid Head so interesting these characters are. Also, one thing I find amazing is the concept of the map design telling parts of the story, like in the prison, where you find some holes on the ground, then jump on them, then another hole, another, another, which looks like a symbolism to depression and the fact that James is going deeper in his nightmare and shit. Classic case of 2deep4me tbh

    Also goddamn pyramid head chasing you with that spear man… Yesterday I was playing and I stumbled on the motherfucker in that labyrinth part because of the fucking camera, mate, it was fucking scary beyond belief because I didn’t remembered that pyramid head shows up in that place. What a pleasant surprise, spear in the chest taking half of your health literally out of the fucking nowhere

    Its indeed a very trippy game I mean, the monster concept lmao. Great game



  • I mean guys, look at this:

    We need more games like this imo.



  • That’s some really weird porn Vanguard…

    Hey I’m sick in the head, not cool to judge me man its a problem you know



  • Amnesia is shite??

    I dunno I kind of like amnesia dark descent. Like the game recommends that you play it in a dark room with headphones at night so I only do that when I play it and every time I see the scary things I get pretty scared throw a chair or something at it and try to find a hiding spot like in a closet.

    Sure the story is not really amazing but the point of playing something like amnesia is the scare factor right?

    Sure, maybe I’m being too harsh with the game tbh, its just that I really didn’t enjoy it, thought everything was really “formal” and predictable to go anywhere interesting you know. I think a real horror game isn’t just the horror factor, it gotta have themes that are “scary” beyond the game you see, I mean, Silent Hill 2 is a scary game gameplay wise, it makes you panic and shit while you are playing, but when you start to think about the story, about what the fuck is happening to James, man, thats scary for itself you know. The monsters, for example, those Bublehead Nurses,

    ! they move their heads like if they were trying to fight someone suffocating them, which relates to the fact that James has killed his wife that way with a pillow. The town tries to remind him of what he really did by using these fucked up elements everywhere, the game doesn’t need wall of texts to tell you interesting details about the story you see.
    !
    ! If you tell someone the SH2 story in details, its scary. You know what I mean? Amnesia has scary moments, but it could have much more then only that.
    !
    ! Hey if you played the game, you remember Pyramid Head right? Thought he was the bad guy from the game? Well think again, he is actually the good guy only trying to help you

    ! You see, this game is a fucking master piece tbh, there is just so much detail everywhere. I think that this is a game that even adds to you, there are big philosophical questions on it and all. Very fucking interesting imo



  • Some of the HL2 mods are much scarier than amnesia. Plus you get to shoot stuff.

  • What about the earlier games of the Amnesia devs? I remember Penumbra being better than Amnesia.



  • @Oy:

    What about the earlier games of the Amnesia devs? I remember Penumbra being better than Amnesia.

    Yeah I did liked penumbra more then amnesia tbh, I got much more apprehensive in penumbra then Amnesia but I think it was because that was my first experience with these devs view on horror games you see. Everything was new to me back then when I tried it.

    Other thing, I managed finished penumbra games, while Amnesia I couldn’t stand it, thought the game was boring as fuck and simply more of the same, like a more polished penumbra but somehow worse because it wasn’t new anymore, I knew what to expect, game got predictable. Haven’t finished that game til this day and I don’t even feel like doing so, idk.

    I’d take Silent Hill’s gameplay over amnesia and penumbra tbh, I find much better the old formula then this new one where we don’t even have combat, goddamn hide and seek simulators filled with boring wall of texts. Also the art direction of the amnesia devs are kinda bad imo, not inspired at all. I mean, shit, in horror games you can go crazy with monster and level design, and those guys were always too fucking formal, they need to shock more, cause discomfort, use this concept of attraction and repulsion, make things interesting you know. At the moment its more like “HUE ugly monster on your ass, go play hide and seek with him in this medieval castle that you have already seen in 318 other games”

    Truth is, I’m a motherfucker when the subject is horror games and I only like Silent Hill 1, 2 and 3. The other horror games out there I find mostly boring and I can’t stand to even finish them because the monsters, the story and the level design are not inspired at all imo when you compare to Silent Hill.



  • I’ve heard the new Alien: Isolation was pretty creepy, makes you feel like a rabbit running from a wolf.
