So like many gamers that have been praising "the Shinji Mikami" for making Resident Evil 4 not like the usual Resident Evilgames. Even if it was the downfall of the series and the sub-genre, in my mind.For only being action adventures with a horror twist to it.
lets look at the perverted version of Resident Evil 4 called Dead Space or the whole series in-itself. In the first one you more or less just shoot limbs of space zombies also called Necromorphs where the main guy Issac becomes a psychotic dude in the begging of 2. Have not played nr 3 yet so can't comment on how good the horror was or whether or not it was any good.
Me and many other fans of the horror games have started to look at the Indie stuff like Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Slender where it is a psychological horror that twists your mind. It reminded me of the good old days where it was the Fatal Frame and Silent Hill that ruled the day of lunch discussions and ultimately set the standards of what I expect of horror games. speaking of "Fatal Frame" you guys should download the new indie game demo which is called "Dread Out" Lets just say it is a good rip off of a classic game.
But back to topic to topic we more or less we are more or less in the dark on this one until next week where Bethesda’s marketing department/IGN
But we know the story is about detective Sebastian and his partner that rushes to the scene of a gruesome mass murder, a mysterious, dark force is lying in wait for them. Witnessing the killing of fellow police officers Sebastian is then attacked and loses consciousness. Waking up in a land where monsters are wandering about, Sebastian has to fight his way through a world of death and madness(which is supposed to be his close friend) in order to understand what's going on. Sebastian has to face his fears in order to survive on a journey to discover what lies in the shadows of that mysterious and darkforce.
The cool thing is that it uses id Tech 5 and an advanced lightning engine.And its a return into pure survival horror with little to no items and there is brutal traps and enemies even puzzles. Also its an unstable world where players action can define what will happen in the levels, I personally can't wait to see some gameplay of this thing.
Here is the trailer of the game. I think its rather cool with some wink wink remember these films.
So my only hope is, when next week IGN will convince me that this is not yet another action game with horror elements but rather a slow paced game in the sense of fatal frame or silent hill. So what do you guys expect from this tittle.
