Why is this game no longer scary?
Horror is still entertainment, so it still has an audience even if it's not scary, the whole "if it's not scary why make it" doesn't really matter if it still sells.

Umm...Not really. All the "ghost" or "haunted house" stuff is way more frequent nowadays than a Texas Chainsaw type horror movie.
I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.
The Scare Factor is i still get scared at some parts but its not the same type of scared... i still dont know what to expect in the next room and its always a surprise... keep intact with a bit of your imagination some party favors and a dark room oughta put that bounce back in your step

You don't understand. They never were scary. Ever. They only scared you because you were a kid.

Nothing scares me anymore. Even so called "classics" in both film and video gaming.
"The Excorcist": Pathetic. Can't believe people actually threw up and left the theaters.
"Paranormal Activity": Seriously!?
"Resident Evil (any)": Polygons are supposed to scare me, especially the crappy graphics of the old games?
"Dead Space": Atmosphere is terrific, but it didn't scare me one bit.
Because this is serious business
"Only the badasses should use the elevator" account of a survivor during a zombie apocalypse
The old games had atmosphere and were more survival oriented
(which translates too: it felt scary / tense)
new games are just generic action shooters....
Because this game is a great action movie, but as a survival horror game, it sucks...

Were people ever really scared of Mr. X and Nemesis?
Exactly. Fear usually comes from things people don't understand or don't know about. Resident Evil right now has neither. Also, when a person gets older an idea tends to become scarier than a mutilated zombie face eating things.

The grew up excuse is pathetic!
I didn't think I could see something this stupid on the internet, but here we are.
No, seriously, all dumb ass "HURR COOOOOOD" nonsense aside, people grew up, that's genuinely all there is to it. There is nothing scary about the old games. Silent Hill? Absolutely, if only for the psychological aspect. RE? Unless you're scared by pixelated monsters and loud noises, no, they should not scare you. There's nothing macho about it, it's a case of the game just being goofy from an adult point of view. I can't believe some of the defenses I'm seeing here.
