when you play a horror game

How do you play them?

As for me it has to be late at night, alone, with the lights off and the volume turned way up, preferably while drinking. Been doing it this way since re 1, I just can't seem to enjoy them otherwise

I just play them whenever, I don't fuss over details
How can I ever change things that I feel? If I could maybe I'd give you my world. How can I when you won't take it from me?

I used to care but now I take a pill for that.I apologize for nothing.

I prefer to play them alone at night, lights off of course. Headphones are great but I don't bother because mine won't work wirelessly with the PS3. If I play during the day I at least shut the curtains.

It's amazing with some games how much difference there is between playing alone in the dark and playing with someone else in the room during the day

I have to play them alone, in the dark, and with no one else around. For me, it really enhances the experience. Backround commentary from people watching can ruin the horror vibes.

Actually, I keep a small light on because I'm afraid of the dark.
Don't get so caught in your ways that you can't change..

I live alone, and work night shift, so...alone at night with the lights off and volume up as I high as I want.

Same way I play all games.

I wish there were horror games still. I wanna turn them lights down, and crank up the headphones! I used to smoke the goods as well. You know to immerse myself.

Lights off, by myself, when its dark. Horror games dont scare me, but its all about the atmosphere. Penumbra and Amnesia are nowhere near as fun in the daytime.
