Thread theme's kinda obvious, (spoopy games, weird shit, horror, ect) but it can also expand to horror elements in games you wouldnt exactly expect to see it in. Like say in pokemon red and blue, How team rocket slaughtered all the pokemon in lavander town. leaving you to even fight against a vengeful spirit. The creepy music didnt help make it any less spookyer. Or in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
There's a boss fight where you see all the the ghosts of the people you killed in game (all of them) and they even yell at you about how you killed them! Shoot a guy in the head, he'll cry out and say
>"my head!"
as he attempts to strangle you. also what's funny is if you shoot a guy in the crotch, he'll say how you "took his manhood" away from him.


Dead space
Man i love this game. It's one of the first real horror game i've ever played, i think i was 15 at the time and it was a hot october night. I was never allowed to trick or treat because satanic holiday or whatever and for some reason my parents didnt care too much about the game when i bpught it. I've been itching to play it again but i'll wait until october. The crampt, desolated hallways, the music and the sounds of the creaking ship, Everything is stuck in my mind. Playing as a janitor who had to constantly repair the ship and who had nerfed powertools as weapons really just added to the horror because you really cant defend yourself and you have to watch your back (unironically) so you dont get killed in one hit. He never spoke and i figured it was because of the shit he saw on that ship combined with the hallucinations and those voices you can barely hear over the music. The audio logs where a nice touch, it added to the feeling that you are "playing a movie" along with cut scenes being apart of the gameplay. i died several times because i thought the tentacle dragging issac was a cut scene. The game over screen is brillant because of the horror of what the necromorphs do to people, issac being brutally slaughterd at every game over screen whilst crying out in pain/fear/agony.
Cutting off the limbs was new to me and if you really try to cut elsewhere you'll just piss them off.
Haven't played dead space 2 (nor 3) yet but this just sounds horrifying https://youtube.com/watch?v=16MdwEb_EGs


The plot twist at the end was just brillant...

Hellnight is an obscure Playstation game from 1998, one of my favorite games! In Hellnight, you're forced to traverse a huge, maze-like underground city called The Mesh while a monstrous creature stalks the player through the tunnels. You can't fight it, you have to run from it whenever it shows up. You can meet many characters throughout the game and some of them can be recruited as companions. If the creature catches up to you, it'll kill whatever companion you have and once they're dead it's permadeath. Then it kills you if you're not fast enough lol.

The game gets progressively weirder towards the end. Very recommended if you're into weird shit!


dont know why they gave it low ratings, it sound very cool.
i like how you can only run, and you have to let others fight for you.


Yes! It's very spooky. I think most critics are retarded, I guess the game was too hard for normies to get into.

What do you guys think about the Silent Hill series?

I think the first four games are masterpieces. Even though some of them have annoying parts, like the escort part of SH4, I'm willing to look past them. I think the first four games have great atmosphere and level and monster design. The music is great. The puzzles are really cool. I love the melancholy feel the games have and how they can make that scary. A good example of this is the piano puzzle in SH1. There's something oddly beautiful about it, like it's an art piece I'm afraid to disturb. At the same time it gives me a serious case of the creeps.

I think the series took a sharp decline after SH4, when Team Silent disbanded and the games became westernized. I thought Origins was alright, I played it a long time ago so I don't remember much other than that. Homecoming was boring, felt more like an action game trying to be creepy. I liked Shattered Memories, it was the first horror game I played and it got me into the horror genre. The chase sequences were very intense.
Downpour was such a letdown, mainly because it had potential to be something really cool. It had some very cool moments, such as the Devil's Pit ride and that one Otherworld maze, but they were not enough to make up for the game as a whole. It had terrible enemy design, half-assed plot and just felt really bland. Making the player character an ex-con with an ambiguous past is an interesting idea but the game never really went anywhere with it. The choice system only came into play twice and didn't really affect gameplay. Also, fuck Korn.
