[FrictionalGames] Amnesia sales hit 200,000 units! - Page 5

post #41 of 72
Maybe I'm just some sort of cavemen but...wasn't that game supposed to be so-so?
I wanted a great horror game but when reading reviews and user opinions it wasn't supposed to be that good. Maybe I've been fooled by a bunch of moron?

On a side note I loved each of their games, but Penumbra got me on my nerve in the room with like 14 dogs so I stopped playing. But I might try this one out and make some of my friends have heart attack .

Is it like jump scares the whole time or is like stuff that scares the crap out of you when your walking down a dark street alone thinking about the game IRL.

Idk, I am kind of a ***** when it comes to horror video games. I can handle movies just fine, but video games freak me out for some reason haha. Barley made it through doom 3 lol....

I don't remember seeing a review that wasn't overwhelmingly positive. The most negative thing I've heard about the game was that it's just too scary for some people.

If you want my opinion, the game is definitely excellent and costs so little there's no real reason not to get it unless you just don't like horror games.

It has a few jump scares but it's mostly ambiance. There are only a few occasions where you can't hear or see danger coming before it shows up, and somehow that makes it scarier.

I'm so happy to hear this!

Support small developers doing what they love. Especially if the game is PC only, or has PC features like good mod support.

Metacritic disagrees, fortunately. The average press score is 85. I think you'll be hard pressed to find an indie game with that kind of score.

Sadly, the people that do give this game, and other indie successes (such as Minecraft) below average reviews are also the same people who give titles like CoD and Halo 10/10 with every iteration.

Amnesia is a one of a kind game, I assure you.

Yea, I watched some videos of people playing and I never see any danger in the game... It is almost all ambiance. Is the enemy just darkness?
