@squidracerx: I think it might be, to a degree, a defence mechanism on Jeff's part. He said stuff like that scared him as a kid. I don't know, I'm just going from my own experiences. I had a very over-active imagination as a child and I got terrible nightmares very easily from even moderately scary movies. So growing up, perhaps at least partly unintentionally, I learned to not suspend my disbelief in those kinds of situations.Maybe now I'm less defensive about that stuff. These days I think I tend to avoid horror because I just find it thoroughly uninteresting so often that I'm not really willing to look for the good stuff. Most horror just isn't very well done, from an adult's point of view. It's almost like porn. If you can ignore a lot of the crappy acting and storytelling, you can still use your imagination to get off on the set-ups for the scenes.I think it also varies from person to person. I have a friend who simply can't play any horror games because he's just scared shitless so easily.But I agree with the sentiment that to think horror is something childish we should have outgrown is about as silly as thinking that we should have outgrown comedy. Maybe some types of horror, but not all horror.
