Are horror games saved?

I swear to fuck I'm not shilling, and I fully condone the piracy of it should the devs turn out to be a shit, but holy fuck, this game looks like Dark Seed all over again with a healthy helping of Silent Hill and a pinch of American McGee's Alice. Between this and Death Stranding, it feels like horror is leaving the made-for-youtube jumpscare corridor sims and returning to good old fashioned oppressive atmospheric explorations of hellscapes.

What does Holla Forums think?

Aesthetic does not make a good game.

Also getting hyped is for children. I'll wait until some actual gameplay or a demo to pass judgement.

Does look neat though, not gonna lie.

this. it looks cool as shit (but then again i have a huge boner for anything giger/beksinski) but if it's your average shooter that won't mean shit

Charles Wright

Aesthetic and atmosphere are key to a good horror game, though. I dunno if the gameplay will be good, it looked like there was a gun of some sort, so it could be like Bioshock and go from super atmospheric to super fps shootan, which would fucking blow, but the pacing and puzzles in the post trailer footage felt more like a slow trek than a speedy shooter.

And then there's this other fucking beauty I just discovered on the youtube sidebar named Agony.

If the gameplay in these are any good, we may just see a revival in horror gaming, Holla Forums.

Well, turns out there is alpha gameplay of it, looks like Outlast with boob physics. Oh well, still looks cool.

Scorn seems to be bizzaro world where you can actually see the surroundings, and the environments seem interesting.

Agony seems to pile on corpses everywhere for shock value and have the visibility of a thick fog.

Yeah, Scorn seems to have better design by far, I just like fucked up scenery in vidya. Dante's Inferno, for instance, was a mediocre game by all standards save scenery and boss design seriously, in what other game do you get attacked by swarms that live inside a giantesses' nipplemouths while climbing massive penis towers?.

Are horror games saved?
No? That was literally just a short reveal trailer.

It looks nice and all, but it could just end up as another FPS but with spooky and gross looking shit. I also think you should take current Holla Forums's opinion with an xbox-huge pinch of salt, and form your own opinion on the game when it actually gets out.

There actually is. At least basic gifs. It's surprisingly fast though. Pretty sure devs commissioned some of these. I know I would if I was a dev.

First time hearing of this too. Hope it's not just a looker.

they've gone and done it: looks like it's time to oversaturate the market with 3deep5you spooky alien walking sims and fps.

meme needs to die tbh either your horror game has action elements and you bitch about that or it doesn't and you call it a "walking simulator."

Low-action atmospheric games have been around for a long time before Gone Home tainted it as a concept to meme-overdosing retards like you.

heheh check me out guys, i'm cool and cynical and aloof and that makes me a big kid! heh, you thought i'd take the risk of having an opinion about something? not me, buckaroo, i'm so cool and indifferent, if you want someone who is willing to think for themselves, you should have looked elsewhere!

yeah, it's hard to have an opinion when a hivemind hasn't formed, has it drone? and fuck off with your shitty tumblr image too

Hunter Russell

This is what happens when people stop debating and resort to strictly shitposting and memeing. They replace arguments with buzzwords, remove their whole meaning and pretty soon you have a board full of people throwing words that mean nothing at each other in non-sentences.

Discussion of videogames dies when people forget how to even talk about them at all.

It's fucking nothing. If its a showcase fucking fine, but so far it is nothing special.

Go suck a fat one while sipping your starbucks coffee, this shit is the same as any other low effort "muh spooky" shit.

Leo Perry

Good thing walking simulators are not games.

Hudson Myers

Maybe they wanted to showcase the atmosphere since that's the important bit?
And then leave a few seconds of LIGHTNING GUN to make it impressive?
Or, and this is a stretch I know, it's an horror game and shooting things with an overpowered lightining gun ISN'T very scary?
Unreal Tournament isn't a very good horror game for instance.

let's talk about this game
"IT'S NOT A GAME"
That's the most "non-argument" I could think up. I can only imagine if the whole board decided everything they didn't like (or came out after 2012) is no longer a game, thus it won't get discussed.
Oh wait, we're already there.

Not wanting a video game
not wanting something like resident evil or silent hill or any other noteworthy spook where you solve puzzles and have some piddly defense against the graboids but it's not enough to take away from the fact that everything is spooky and can fuck you up if you linger.
there's not a reason we say things, it's all memes and buzzwords!
I want the newfags to lurk or leave, there's a fucking reason we're cynical about shit.

Then there's plenty of comunities for older games that are still pretty active. Go there.
Or better: start up threads on those games.
For fuck sake, I had to start a thread for 7 Kingdoms here because the retarded nostalgia faggots don't actually discuss the games they like. You'd think that with so many great older games we'd manage to have at least 50 threads about them.
But instead of talking about pre-2000 games and making threads about it, you're in a thread about 3 games that haven't even come out yet bitching.

As someone who loves horror games but also gets motion sickness from low FOV and shaky-cam, 90% of the genre is unplarable garbage for me.
Hopefully devs can move away from the "playing with horse blinkers and having your POV disoriented to make it harder to play means it's scary" mentality, but then that would rely on them being able to realise that horror isn't monster closets and jump scares, which will never happen.

They do involve more than touching shit, they involve puzzle solves. That trailer showed non of that.

Michael James

Honestly, a wider FOV is scarier because there's a lot more screen to keep track of and things can legit sneak up beside you, and you'll see them right before you die from your peripheral vision which makes you automatically way more startled, jumpy and unnerved than any scripted jumpscare, loud noise or kill from behind.

Hunter Gonzalez
Hunter Gonzalez

you want a safespace
Nah, I want discussion adn arguments.
Either shit on a game with a proper reason (like folks are doing in the Ass Effect Andromeda thread) or talk about why it's good.
nullposting shit like doesn't add nothing to the discussion, nothing to the board and only takes up space.
There's a point where a post will just be clutter and have no reason to be posted.
I don't need a safe space because I can deal with shit like that.
You on the other hand want a safespace where you can post random shit with no substance and expect it to fly and fit in. Fuck off to tumblr.

It's almost like if you bump a thread twice in a row you're a faggot and are new to fullchan, where it has always been degeneracy to multibump a thread. You sage as though it was part of the last post you made, and if there's an overlap it won't fucking bump the thread twice. This has been common decency since the fucking beginning.
You fucking super queer.

Did I say that? No I didn't.
I said "Shit on games when you have something to say"
It doesn't need to be something nice, and it doesn't need to be something bad.
It needs to be something.
Some tips:
"It's fucking shit!"
Isn't something at all.
"It's pozzed!"
Isn't something at all.
"It's cancer!"
Isn't something at all.
"It's casual shit!"
Isn't something at all.

If it's shit, tell us why it's shit. If it's pozzed, tell us what is pozzed. If it's casual, tell us why it is so.
If you just want to blurt buzzword, halfchan/v/ is the place for you. That's the place with OP's starting with 15 words (5 of them beeing buzzwords) and then 50 posts of "lol, it's shit"

I was here since the exodus back when Hotwheels actually hung out on /b/, Old Spice. I just tend to play a chaotic neutral rogue class on here and not follow bs "threadiquette" and reply to posts as I see them.

Just read a dev interview on Scorn, the first game posted here. Apparently it's an "open world" game not like GTA, like a Zelda game since they said it's region based focusing on puzzle solving and stealth survival, as ammunition for the gun is limited. So basically like Alien Isolation, only not linear and without crafting. In fact, the dev said it's completely possible to miss story crucial plot elements just by not finding them, and that the story is told by events in the game, not cutscenes or text.

Agony has gameplay, but it's just Outlast with boob physics and a bit of puzzle solving.

Not able to judge Inner Chains at this time, but it visually looks like Bloodborne which is pretty awesome.

Darn. You sure caught me, friend. I'll be taking my genders and leaving.

Yeah, I can get behind that. Can't be spooked if something doesn't look and/or feel spooky. And it certainly has all the tools there, it's just a matter of hoping they don't heck it up.

Landon Hernandez

Nice double dubs, OP.
Looks neat. Not horror as in blood and corpses, looks more like a body horror design, which makes me erect.

I'll add it to my list of things to look out for. And word on a release date?

Don't post Agony here. The devs shill it here every few weeks, and it just devolves into posting demon porn.
The devs literally want people to buy it purely off demon tits and it works on this shithole

Anthony Green

While I like the aesthetics, we know jack shit about the game. There's a gun, and from the looks of it you can switch out the front to give it different functions. That still doesn't tell us how combat-heavy it's going to be, or if it's going to have anything substantial in the way of puzzles.
No hype from me, but cautious optimism instead.

This trailer is nothing new, and it's notable solely in the category of how much it DOESN'T show. I saw this quite a while ago and, while I hope for the best, I'm not holding my breath, especially with so little info.

Also, this entire fucking thread so far not ONE FUCKING PERSON has mentioned Prey? Not ONCE? The entire fucking design of this trailer screams "How Prey 2 should be," and nobody even mentions Prey a single time.

What the fuck Holla Forums, I don't know whether to consider myself an oldfag or if Holla Forums just has a shit vidya history.

prey
But now that's zenimax garbo, why would anyone bring that up?

Aiden Kelly
Aiden Kelly

But now that's zenimax garbo, why would anyone bring that up?
First, because EVERYONE did back when this trailer was first published on youtube. It got linked here, and it's all anyone talked about, because the parallels were fucking obvious. The concensus was "I hope this is the Prey 2 we deserve."

Second, Zenimax doesn't fucking make games. The devs behind Prey were perfectly fine, but like EA does to anything it touches, Zenimax completely fucked those devs over too. Calling Prey shit because Zenimax was a guillotine hanging over the heads of the devs is fucking retarded and I'm seriously wondering how much, if anything, you know about prey.

Oh, then you completely misunderstood me.

Prey was great. I'm not talking about actual Prey 2, which is who the fuck actually knows what. Prey 2 doesn't seem to have anything to do with the first one, and the trailer I remember watching from E3 was just full of wat.

The point I was making is that when the trailer for Scorn first got released, people looked at it and compared it to Prey, which was understandable and expected. Even though the trailer didn't really show anything, people said "I hope this game becomes the sequel to Prey that we want." Has nothing to do with the actual game to be released called Prey 2, people were just saying that after going so long without a sequel to Prey (which a good number of people wanted), they were hoping Scorn was going to be a spiritual successor to it. The point was that I can't believe the entire thread went by and nobody even mentioned original Prey a single time. It's mind boggling.

I wasn't talking about the Prey 2 being developed right now, which I know next to nothing about and don't really care. It didn't look too interesting. I'll likely yohoho it at some point just to see.
