What's your opinion on fixed camera horror games Holla Forums?

Caleb Fisher
Caleb Fisher

I desperately miss them. Horror can work well in first person as well, but there's just something about fixed cameras that lends it's self more to atmosphere. Also they require actual artistic skill. Insert images of REmake (cube version, not the butchered HD remaster) here.

Bentley Evans

I like 'em. Which is odd as they used to mildly annoy me, but now I find myself wanting them to come back.

Owen Cruz

Did you pick up that question from the Saturday Night Horror threads?

Should be brought back. From a psychological perspective, feeling responsible for the death of a distinct 'other' (fixed camera) is much more disturbing than feeling responsible for the death of what only acts as your avatar (flexible camera). Same thing as with tank controls, really.

Plus, fixed cameras naturally allow you to pull off all kinds of spooky stuff.

Horror RPG

Never actually heard of that genre. How'd that even play if you can just grind to punch the face off the nasty monsters?

Blake Perez
Blake Perez

Which are some games that have that "horror in a small town" feel? Kinda like Silent Hill or Deadly Premonition I guess. Has Mizzurna Falls been translated yet?

I like fixed camera angles, also I like when you can't control the camera and it moves in weird angles, like in some of the Silent Hill games
I don't like it that much when they use it for cheap kills though.

Play FF2, it's a great game
Also, why did PS2 have so many good horror games?
Early 00s was the golden age of horror vidya, technology was good enough to make a good narrative focused game (like horror games) and youtube still wasn't a thing so the market wasn't saturated with crappy amnesia clones.

Juan Cook

F.E.A.R's horror segments have really had me groaning, just aernt scary. I might be a bit startled by the first scare. But theyre so blatantly telegraphed after those first scares that it loses it's effect like that.
But when the horror section ends, and i know that combat is imminent… OOH! Its the "scare the shit out of yourself by pushing a box off a table" kind of scared. Then it's juicy action…

Nolan Reed
Nolan Reed

I've been replaying FEAR and its expansions, just finished Extraction Point. I remember the first time I played them I willingly put myself into the "get spooked" mindset and I thought the games did quite well in that regard, but once you've been through it the effect definitely wears off since you know what's coming. A couple of the jump scares still get me because I managed to forget about them but that's about it. I will note that Extraction Point doesn't do Alma all that well but some of the new creepy stuff they tossed in works from time to time.

Also this is the first time I'm playing with EAX options enabled through ALchemy, it's nice hearing the game's sound design amped up with some nice new effects.

Jeremiah Barnes
Jeremiah Barnes

Like Ao Oni 2 is not already enough nightmare on the android, wish the just kept it on PC, or atleast made a PC version, the game is great but Ao Oni is op, blue ass faggot can fucking teleport if you change screen, for instance in last screen if he's about 100 step away from you, on next screen he will be LITERALLY close enough to rub his cock on your butt and make us cry like a bitch, not to mention he is not as fast as us if not faster, this is not what we all wanted, it's better if they just leave Ao Oni 1 alone with its last update.

Ian Brown
Ian Brown

Instead they use the RPG system rather manually in most cases, for an example in games like IB a menu below you save, which is perfect, status is strong factor in making the player feel immersed in the game by adding things like "bleeding" or "crying" sometimes, the profile in inventory menu also changes its expression in some cases, it is good since the focus is on the story and mystery and horror factor rather than combat, now on the other hand Gokuto Jihen had a hell of potential to make a great combat similar to Zenobia, even if it was small and sadly lasted barely a minute.

Nicholas Bennett

The Evil Within
The start was pretty tense especially since you have so little ammo, and if you're entering a new area running away from an enemy might lead to getting blown up by a trap. After playing a bit longer I just loathe running into anything that has an instakill or is a jumpscare. Pretty fun trip I'll admit.
Subnautica
Not really a horror game, but I dislike the deep ocean and knowing that I'll eventually have to go deeper if I want to get the resources needed to eventually escape the planet makes me break into a cold sweat sometimes. Recommend a pirate.

Anthony Robinson

I will ask again for some recommendations.

Do you have any horror vidya where the government poses a threat and helps the paranormal in fucking something up. Shit like:
The main character discovers a village full of murderous batshit insane people who seem like they've been possessed by something
The government tries to shut down any information that could help the hero in finding what the fuck is going on
Want to exit the village? Whoops, random quarantine state was suddenly announced in that area, you cannot exit because of "bullshit sickness #251552"
The villagers try to murder you? Too bad! The police is currently busy and cannot dispatch a unit to your current location.
I want a kind of paranoia-fueled story where everything seems to be working against the main character. This and different paranormal conspiracy things like SEELE.

I would also love something where everything starts normal and then slowly goes into the realm of uncanny valley.

Hudson Barnes
Hudson Barnes

you might be interested in Ecstatica, an old, fixed perspective horror computer game from '94. If you can get the sound/music working you are in for a goddam treat, even if it's kinda frustrating to play by today's standards.

set in medieval times
off adventuring and take a break in a village
first thing you see is a half-dead old man crawling toward you
next thing you know you're being hunted by a werewolf that predates Nemesis by 5 years
villagers are being crucified, hanged, and beaten
demons everywhere
game is filled with extreme violence, crude humour, and ellipsoid titties

it's probably one of the few games that disturbed me when I first played it years ago and if it weren't for some control issues and dated graphics it'd be mentioned in the same breath as Alone in the Dark and RE.

James Perry

Cyberpunk horror is like Lovecraftian but instead of tentacle monsters who humans cannot comprehend you have conspiracies about people whose "tentacles" control every part of the society that humans cannot comprehend.

Landon Carter
Landon Carter

I want a horror story that has both! Preferably about an evil conspiracy of crazy people whose "tentacles" control every part of society that humans cannot comprehend, that works for tentacle monsters and is crazy enough to do something crazy and horrible with humanity as a whole.

Michael Watson
Michael Watson

Not exactly a horror game per se, or even a spooky-themed one, but I got fucking spooked out of my fucking skeleton while playing empyrion: galactic survivor an early access title that I got dirt cheap and is a surprsingly decent minecraft in space with actual graphics:

exploring the planet akua, first time playing and understanding environment and mechanics
stumble upon an "abandoned mine", marked as an enemy base
get ready to face enemies, but I encounter nothing more than empty buildings with some dumb turrets for token defense
the music suddenly shifts, it went from "generic friendly building environment" to a throbbing, soft and low tune
go down the abandoned mine, down a shaft and some elevators, all the while listening to some faint noises in the distance below
I reach a door with the noises now worrying me, but push on just to see what the abandoned mine is all about
The moment I open the door some fucking faceless abomination with a weird looking body and even weirder looking limbs starts flailing around, darting straight to attack me
Suddenly, others appear and do exactly the same, within seconds of catching me completely off guard

I killed them while completely panicked and fucked off forever from that place. It might not sound impressive or anything, but the fact it happened in a minecraft-clone in space that never even hinted at the possibility of such scenario probably added to the effect. I might try a second expedition but not without being armored and armed to the fucking teeth and then some.

Ayden Young

Tried to play this game once and almost destroyed my toaster. Shame, since it looks fun.
Also it seems pretty confusing.

Owen Moore
Owen Moore

Is it one of those never ever EA game? The minecraft bit tells me yes

Bentley Ortiz
Bentley Ortiz

Yeah, it's optimized in the sense that it runs at a high framerate without issues, but certainly isn't made for lower end machines. As for the gameplay, it's still rough which is sort of a trademark of an early access, but recent patches have made things a bit more easy to understand, and the online is pretty healthy with lots of PVP and PVE, and is also constantly patched so it gives me the impression that it's being legimately worked on rather than being abandoned.

The main issue is the starting point, where you have almost nothing and have to use the piss poor mining tool that takes a gorillion years to get ore and eats fuel like no tomorrow, but once you get the tech rolling, the gathering aspect becomes much easier to manage, much more so when you get to the planets with the rare resources that net you the best gear and devices available.

Chase Myers

Leo Kelly

Agreed, Amnesia is overrated. My problem with Amnesia is that it gets too easy to trick the monster and some puzzles are retarded. Somehow this one corpse is completely petrified but it has blood that hasn't coagulated? The player made maps for Amnesia also tend to be shit too, they tend to recycle the good parts of Amnesia without ever experimenting and sometimes you get completely retarded shit like having mysterious a letter to and signed by yourself as 666xXx_Sepiroth_xXx666.

If you're interested you can try Space Funeral.

Can you guys recommend me some good Cosmic Horror? I kind of feel like no other genre makes me feel the same dread than Lovecraftian stuff.

Ghosts and monsters just don't feel the same after you know that there is a genre completely centered around the fact that humanity is fucked in every way shape or form.

Aside from that, are there horror games that did Satan good? Like are there games that managed to make the devil actually scary? I know some horror movies were able to, maybe some books but I don't know about games.

Blake Martin
Blake Martin

The problem with FEAR (besides relying on jumpscares) is that it's difficult to be actually scared while you just got done playing berserk monster to several squads of elite soldiers. It's like playing through Resident Evil but instead of playing as an somewhat isolated character, you play as a Rainbow Six style squad with ammo to spare. Not even the BOW would be very scary then.
This feels… Lewd.

I wish Fatal Frame would come back to playstation.

2 was my favourite. I played the remake, thought it was pretty good as well. I also played 4, and thought that was decent. I never bought a WiiU so I couldn't play 5.

It's honestly my favourite series but I feel like it's teetering on the edge of extinction, because it seems like Nintendo just hates it.

Eternal Darkness hands down. The insanity effects are something you'll never see in any game, ever again.

Adam Cooper
Adam Cooper

If you like horror games with a "weapon" in your hand to defend yourself, and (most) of the scary things are enemies you can fight off/kill, then try Fatal Frame.

One of the best things about the Fatal Frame seroes is that it's very arcade. You take pictures of ghosts to do damage to them, you have different types of "ammo" (film) that does more damage. As well as lenses that provide different effects. Various things can be upgraded as well.

You get points depending on how you shoot the ghosts with the camera, like getting more than one ghost in a shot, or taking the picture just before they're about to hit you, knocking them back etc. It has really fun gameplay alongside incredibly oppressive, spooky and creepy atmospheres.

There was never any evidence that TPB was compromised, and it's currently the #1 torrent site by a healthy margin. Either it's the biggest fucking honeypot in the world, that is waiting years and years for the first wave of prosecutions to happen, or it's good to go.

I'm going with the latter, but I'm always open to some solid proof that it is indeed compromised.

From what I heard this isn't that deep of a horror game a few jump scares but not a lot of fear from it. However it apparently has a rich worldbuilding that sucks you in to it.

Good ass game. A bit easy for an RE title, though. Has tons of extra content with difficulty selection to make up for that, however.

I've been replaying the whole series and I'm about halfway through Nemesis right now. I love the idea of running through the streets of Raccoon city instead of being confined to a single location. I love the nods to RE1 and 2 and really appreciate the difficulty after beating the earlier games a dozen times each. Nemesis does a fantastic job of actually being threatening and scary in the early game. The ammo creation system is a good idea but I feel like it gets a bit overpowered if you just make a shitload of grenade rounds.

I have to say that this game is probably the biggest departure from the original formula while still being a "classic" Resident Evil title. It might be my favorite when I'm done but I doubt it will have the longevity that RE2 did.

Connor Hill

Just beat RE3 today and holy shit that final fight, man. A bit disappointed in the lack of rocket launcher finisher but we still got a cheesy line at the end so I'm sated Really neat game, though I'm worried about the replay value in comparison to 2. Mercenaries is a load of fun but the regular campaign seems like it will only be good for one or two extra run throughs unless S rank is really hard to achieve.
In the end I have to say I don't like the dodge mechanic. It either makes the game a breeze or just gets in the way since it can be triggered with the same button combination as shooting. Fighting hunters was a nightmare when I was constantly dodging accidentally and getting hit anyway. Looking forward to Code Veronica to bring me back to my Resident Evil Comfort zone.

It's really fucking sad. And it's not just NoA's localization practices either. NoJ seems to just not give a shit about the series.

They could actually make a really neat portable one for 3DS but they just did that Spirit Camera bullshit.

Games like SMT IV/Apocalypse and Monster Hunter look pretty damn good. And Fatal Frame usually focus on small oppressive areas like rooms in large houses or hospital rooms with only a few large-ish They could easily pull off a decent Fatal Frame game on 3DS, if they didn't want to spend the money for another full console game.

It's just so sad. There is NO other series like it. It has a mixture of creepy, oppressive atmosphere with arcadey gameplay, upgrades etc. And the signature taking pictures of ghosts with a camera, and even saving them too.

Games like Fatal Frame, Silent Hill. Games like those don't deserve the hell they're going through.

My ranking would go 4 > 2 > 1 > 3 > the rest.

what game is that

Just finished Observer.

Shit's nice, but barely qualifies as a horror game. Most of the jumpscares (but not all of them) take place in VR 'mind dive' sequences. Devs surely took couple of pages from Amnesia - there's couple of 'sneak past the monster' bits here and there.
Sound design and music are absolutely gorgeous though, atmosphere is top-notch too. Futuristic Krakow with rich Rutger Hauer's rich voicework is sure something. Visuals are great too, especially the distortion and noise effects (you'll be seeing a lot of them).

Fatal Frame 5. WiiU only.

Has lots of nice, wet clothes. And ghosts. Being wet also plays a part mechanically.

Wetness is a status effect in Fatal Frame V, indicated by a small icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. The meter appears as a lotus bud on a blue background when partially full and a lotus flower in bloom when completely full, and turns red when the character is Tainted with black water. The characters' wetness increases in rainy settings, or when a ghost touches them, and decreases in dry areas. Wading or crawling in water does not increase wetness. Being wet increases spirit power, but also increases the number of random battles. Using a Purifying Flame will return the characters instantly to the default dry state.

Good. I will shill it every thread if I have to.

Silent Hill 4 is second best Silent Hill. It's extremely underrated, and often gets shit on for not having the same mechanics as the first three games. The series didn't really start to become shit until after 4 and around when Origins popped up.

There really should be an expanded list with some basic thoughts on the type of horror and reliance on stuff like jumpscares, I'd be happy to contribute if such a project was started.

Not really scary but just finished Nocturne. Holy shit that was good. There is abbot of shitty things about the game but it was still a great experience. Gonna check out the "sequel" Blair witch game that was made with the same engine. Otherwise just been going back through the original AiTD series here and there.

Yeah, I picked it up along with The Mummy 2 (also on GBC) back in the day.
The backgrounds were very nice - added a whole lot to the eerie atmosphere.

Aiden Long

Minecraft used to do that for me back in the alpha days.

Lingering feeling of uncertainty because the game itself was constantly changing and there were no docs
Unexplained bugs like the ever-present grid of blocks on the horizon
The unnatural total darkness at night before they added layered lighting
Very early buggy netcode had no mobs lulling people into a false sense of safety
<Updating one day and finding out just how bad that house location really was
Fire physics that were actually threatening
<Entering a forest area you've never been before and 5 minutes later it's an inferno
Suicidal mobs that didn't yet have a fear of heights programmed into them
Going into the hell dimension with no hints besides "here's how to door"
<Getting lost
Shitty map generator leads to constant paranoia
<Caves that abruptly end in vertical walls where they look like they should continue
<Ceilings and floors of sediment that could cave in and kill you any second
<Thinking you secured everything only to find miles of new tunnels that have been soaking up random spawns in the meantime
<Deep underground lakes that sometimes had no bottom

Sadly the more polished and consistent they made it, the less threatening it made it feel. Nowadays it just feels like a normal first-person shooter with too much grinding and all the recent additions are just them fellating prefab map makers.

Coming to think of it, do you think time-based win conditions are critical for horror games? Be it just for the best ending or just to get a good ending at all?

PS2 has better framerates, less bugs, a more interesting difficulty curve and I find the camera HUD less cluttered
XBOX has per pixel lighting, better resolution, an undub (which has a few bugs fixed but a few new of it's own especially crashing related to costume changes) and Fatal mode.

Honestly it's not worth chasing a XBOX for but if you have one fatal mode is a neat new way to experience he game.

Funny, because I thought the horror segments were fucking anoyning in the literal iretating sense. Whenever one came up I would say to myself 'not this garbage again'. The only thing that I would consider surprising me was the fucking ladder, and that's just because they had put an enemy in my face. Actually it would have been a bigger spook if it actually was one.

Logan Rivera

I think Fatal Frame 2 also has Xbox exclusive content.

I haven't played that version, only the PS2 and Wii ones, but I think Fatal Frame 2 overall are still my favourites.

Am I the only one here that's played Nocturne? That game was awesome, while the acting and animations where crappy the atmosphere, especially the environments (except for 3rd volume) were amazing. Granted the game was a little boring since you were just running and gunning all kinds of mythological beasts in empty, yet beautiful, areas. You had all the classic horror tropes (zombies, vampires, werewolves, Frankenstein, elder gods) and a cold protagonist who didn't give a shit about anything but killing shit. Oh and don't forget about prototype Bloodrayne broad that runs into a mess of enemies or a trap and dies every 10 seconds that is if she isn't getting stuck behind a wall - don't even get me started with the western level where you have to escort people to the church the AI is literally retarded. Anyway, if you haven't check if out you can download it pretty easy since I know most of yu don't even buy game. Just be prepared to sit through hours of setting the game up if you have anything higher than Win XP

It's indie Unity game tier.

can be spectacular if done right. It's best when used as a tool because the screen can show one thing while the physics can show another and it's one of the few things that can give the sens of extradimensional issues.

Managed to setup this badboy on PC with no crashing. I beat the game in a couple days doing all the sidequests, and damn it's a good game. It's shitty gameplay is so quirky and charming that it becomes good.

I tried for days to get that to work right. It's the only game I've ever had to abandon because it just flat out refused to work.

Henry Wood

Yeah, it took me a good 6-8 hours of tweeking settings just to get it running. I couldn't beat the last boss because I played with the aiming bug, so I had to run in 98 compatibility mode just so I could shoot the boss.

To be fair you might as well just watch it on youtube. Swery removed the difficulty settings from the PC version because he wanted everyone to beat it so once you get a no-durability melee weapon the game becomes a joke. Other than the Killer-cam chase sections which are very silly.

Landon Jackson

This game is a great memory for me, I remember the day I went to the mall to buy the game the day it released. I had to ask an employee about it because I couldn't find it anywhere and they had no idea what I was talking about so they had to search in storage, they only had 3 copies of the game, I'm pretty sure I was the only one buying it where I live.
Great game, super charming, I never played it on PC though but I have heard it's a very bad port.
