Just because you're an internet tough guy doesn't mean everyone else has to feel the same way. Most people find it scary because it's built on psychological horror. You don't find it scary then you were just missing out on a popular game, that happens. That doesn't make the game boring just because you personally didn't get into it.


psychological horror? really? I played amnesia and was bored to death. there's no psychological there just by having a monster who's face is like a kraken and panic meter doesn't mean scary.

a psychological horror makes you fight to overcome fear ut there is no fighting involved in amnesia

um no...psychological horror means that the game tries to get inside your head to make you scared...has nothing to do with fighting to overcome fear

This - something like the original "Psycho", psychological horror is subtle with gradually building tension, not employing obvious avenues like having a weird looking monster jump out at you around every turn.

Why do people always ask why this and this is scary? That's the real question.

Atmosphere, sounds, spooky environments, immersion, fear of the dark, unease, unsettling violence either through words, visuals or sounds. All these things factor into it.


But if one is immune to it all....

I thought there were some freaky scenes in the game. Playing it at night, with headphones on... if you have any kind of imagination, it can be pretty spooky.
