As someone who doesn't play many horror games solely because I am a big scaredy cat who is spooked easily: Mr. X was the Primary and really Only thing stopping me from playing that game. I knew how he worked, I knew exactly when he came into play & when he was no longer a threat, hell I knew how to juke him before I'd even played! But the thought of having an ever-present enemy wandering a large open space with narrow corridors, and any noise you make he can hear and will start heading straight towards you UTTERLY TERRIFIED me.
And then a few weeks ago at Thanksgiving, I bought RE2 on sale, and played through all of Claire A with my sister watching. If I hadn't had a family member nearby to give me moral support I probably would never have played the game at all.
He's a cool enemy and a cool idea!..... but so Spooky...
My current thoughts on RE3 Remake are: I'm definitely not playing it myself, because Nemesis is gonna be TOO SCARY!!! I love horror games/movies, but I just cannot play spooky games most times. Too Spooky! and Mr. X is one of the Spookiest Spooks i'd ever seen!!
What a great game. I screamed like a baby multiple times when he showed up.
