Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs doesn't deserve the hate.

This game received a lot of hate upon release, mostly for not being as scary as the original. I definitely agree with this, but it doesn't detract from the experience. I had great fun working out Mandus' backstory and what happened to his children. The speech at the end of the game was amazing as well. The guy who voiced Mandus deserves an award or something.

Mandus' final speech -

That's one thing about Amnesia/A Machine for Pigs/Dear Esther, they get these voice actors with fantastic voices.

Yes it does. It's not scary, and it's dumbed down.

Stop being a fanboy and read a damn book if all you want is story.

there very different types of games which is going to spark a love/hate thing going for it. personally i enjoyed them both for various reasons. TDD had that panic type of scary going for it while AMFP is more of an unrelenting sense of uneasyness. i liked AMFP's more physiological sense of horror more despite it admittingly toning back the general gameplay for a better story/writing/atmosphere.

variety in games

Because playing an ultra-linear, no-gameplay, not scary, dark hallway simulator is "variety".

You're better off reading a book instead of being babied by an interactive medium.

The game is like 13 what do you expect? Some massive open world horror game?

I imagine it wouldn't have gotten much hate if it were billed as Dear Esther 2 (mainly because many would have ignored it). However, when a sequel to something comes out, people will want a similar experience.
Let strength be granted, so the world might be mended.

Amnesia instantly stopped being scary once you know what you're up against.
Games I'm currently playing: Star Ocean 2 (Ps1), Legend of Zelda OoT (N64).
