Got to agree with the people saying you just grew up, if you're in your 20's or 30's video games and movies really aren't likely to scare you anymore, you know the deal by then "hey a closet, could there possibly be...... *scratches chin* a zom....yep, not scary".
I recently played RE2, which I had never played before and nothing at all got to me, in fact it was a humorously easy game. -
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.
RE has mainly been only action go play the past REs and you'll see. Only thing it had was jumpscares, like in scenario b when Mr. X came through the wall at the King, queen, jack puzzle. Only RE that really super scared me would be Nemesis. When i played RE3 the first time every time i encountered him i'd coward up in the safe room.
The grew up excuse is pathetic! Its the same with silent hill games, the companies are aiming for the morons who like stupid CoD games, giving you nothing to get scared about!
Go play Lone survivor, silent hill 1 to 3, re 1 to 3, hell, even apresite eve 1 and 2 make you go "oh crap whats gonna hapen next" if you replay them now!
In the new re games you go..."oh hey more things to shoot at with my neverending surplus of ammo...nothing to get worried about!"
Silent Hill I can agree to, but I recently played through RE2 for the first time and there's nothing scary about it. I'm sorry, but the classic games were not scary. --- I hate religion, but I love Jesus. Official leader of the Illuminati.
Quote:Because you grew up. @BigSharkZ That's a dumb statement. I played a PC game called "slender" recently and it freaked me out. Just cause people get older doesn't mean they can't get scared. Sure it might be harder to get scared but not impossible. It just depends on the approach of how it's used in games. --- Sent from my iPhone via PowerFAQs 1.9
