Good PC horror games? - Page 9

post #81 of 240
I feel like all of this is like saying Resident Evil isn't scary. I don't think you can realistically categorize these games as anything other than horror games. Regardless of who's how desensitized to violence, the games are pretty much nothing but death, zombies, gore, shadows...

I don't know, to me it's like arguing eggshell vs vanilla white.
 
Thanks Geritol!

I'm currently playing Under Hell. That is a very good HL2 mod, with a lot of suspense.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.

IMO, RE1, 2 and 3 (including the RE1 remake and Zero) were actual horror games. RE 4 and 5 were more of an action type of game with some horror in it.

Now I need to hook the game cube up and play the RE1 remake tongue.gif

Exactly. Resident Evil switched gears completely starting with RE4 and continued with RE5. They're not close to horror games because nothing is scary about them. They're just action games, shooters, just like Dead Space. RE6 looks to be continuing the same disappointing trend.

I actually think it started the shift in RE3. I don't remember being scared in that game. I do remember wanting to cry in RE2 when that thing crawled past the window. RE2 was the last scary game of the series.
In progress.

All I can think of are the Fear games and the Bioshock series both have 3rd sequels coming out too.

Gameplay was pretty much the same in RE3. Whether it reached the levels of intensity of RE2 or RE1 is something else, but they were still using the same formula with RE3 and even Code Veronica and Zero for the most part.

It was the same type of gameplay, yeah... but it wasn't really a horror game anymore.

Yeah, I kinda have to agree with RE3 starting to shift toward action instead of horror. Although, It would be extremely hard to follow up with something as good as RE2 was. It's going to be insanely hard for them to come up with anything now simply because of the character actions / control scheme.

+ rep for all you guys. thumb.gif

Somehow the new game for the Nintendo handheld actually got an *overall* positive review on zero punctuation. How they managed that, I don't know. .....maybe there's hope for RE 6? ...maybe?
