It's called growing up. Congragulations, you are now a man. I was the same way when I was younger playing and now there really isn't any game that gets me scared anymore. --- "Solomon Grundy, born on a Monday!"
I don't think they can really make the game scary given everyone is familiar with the story now. They can make the game tense I suppose by making think you are going to die around every corner. Also, the controls made the game tense back then and there is no way they would go back to those controls. --- ---
