Well, most people that I know says that FF1 is also the scariest one compared to FF2. Maybe I really didn't experience the scare factor of FF1 that much because I wasn't alone when I played that game for the first time. :P --- What you are thinking right now...is my signature.
First of all...Those are personal opinions =P. Probably because of better graphics or ghost models? I don't know, I played FF1 myself so I don't know. But I'm sure this is the least scariest of the series lol I think you know that already --- I shall vanquish the evil of the ages!
Because when trying to convince people that consider Resident Evil or System Shock 2 to be the scariest game ever, you need to say that this series is the scariest ever. And since Fatal Frame II is better, longer and easier to find than the first one, so you recommend that. --- View my +500 home made funny pics: http://supershadowman.yvclan.org/ The site has just undergone a massive update!
Are you sure "everyone" said this game was the scariest? Maybe they meant this game series, not II specifically. All I've ever heard from anyone is that II is the least scary, but that the series in general is the scariest, in their opinion.

There was a lot of things that this game did better than one.But Mio was no punk.....which was very much so not the case in one.But that's also why one scared me more.Miku was just as much as a punk as I and on top of that...Kirie had style in her work...which mad me fear being in the mansion more.But I appreciate Mio as a character a lot.She was the "I guess I'm gonna have to swallow this one..." chick (XD),and this was a vast majority of ppls first PZ game.I didn't know anyone else personally that played the first game when it was first released for 4 years.
I've never heard anyone say this is the scariest game ever, but I do think the original was scarier than FF2. Neither one can hold a candle to SH2 though. The problem with the FF games is that you get too many healing items and the ghosts are easy to take down. I finished FF2 with 40+ potions... on NORMAL difficulty! It really takes away from the fear factor when you have potions to rely on. --- MGO: I Touched $unny (AND LOVED IT!) http://loligagger.vndv.com/
