The Evil Within [Previews]

7 posts in this topic

I've heard bad things about this game - namely that the protagonist basically does not show any fear throughout the whole thing. Not in a Badass Ash from evil dead way - more in a blank faced 'oh my god. a zombie.' kind of way,

 

EDIT Just checked out the second video with the trailer. Someone is channeling Res Evil 4 quite hard arent they (aware its the same director but the similarities are striking)

I honestly am looking forward to this game but I'm doubtful at the same time. I love the resident evil franchise but a franchise does not make a game. I have been missing the classic survival horrow with an ACTUAL WAY TO DEFEND YOURSELF. I'm sorry but I'm seeing more and more of these amnesia and dark light sort of games that give you no way to defend yourself. In a real situation if something was coming towards me that I thought was threatening I'm going to pick up the nearest sharp object and defend myself. Finally they bring back the classic survival horror.

This is not a hate post on the new horror games. They're just not for me. I don't find them scary, I just find them tedious with random jump scares that just are way too played out now.

Bring on The Evil Within.

I'll admit that I didn't watch the videos, but I don't really see the point in doing so as it's just another "horror" game. It will either have no way of defending oneself or will have an overabundance of items to defend oneself with. Pretty much like it always has been. Not to even mention that the scares quickly get old and later on in the game get more annoying than anything.

maybe it's just me but "scary" games where you can just shoot and kill the whatever is coming after you... just isnt scary

 

"oh no a scary monster ill just shoot it in the face with my shotgun"

not scary.
