I have to write about this or else I can’t sleep quietly at night,
I recently got myself the horror game “Dead Space”, the first version of the series, which is the most scary one. Origin offers this game to play free of charge, so I took the chance to download it & test it out.
You know what? Even though that game is from 2008 and I already watched a walkthrough of it I’m still scared to walk through the lonesome corridors of the space station. I have seen “Outlast” & "Amnesia". I have played games, which includes shooting up enemies such as the "Mass Effect-Trilogy" or "Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune". I have seen the ugly faces of the Darkspawn from "Dragon Age" or the mentally damaged Leapers of "Remember Me". I enjoy to watch someone else play horror games, but I recently learn that I do not enjoy playing them myself. Haha. Especially in combination with shooting elements, because when I get scared I tend to shot everything except the monsters, who are about to kill you in a very horrific fashion.
Some say it’s scary, some say it isn’t. Fear is a very subjective concept like the concept of love. Everyone fears different things. Everyone has different experiences in life. I say that the game is very scary to me because I don’t like tight & dark hallways. It gives you the feeling of claustrophobia. Plus the background sounds are creepy as hell. You hear whispering, footsteps and scratching of the walls and the floors, which causes you to permanently look behind your back. You think that someone is watching you, even though nobody is there.
Why did I download it? Am I crazy? Anyway, I’ll try to beat that game. I’ll try to bravely march through the space station and make a stab at shooting these monsters, who are known as Necromorphs, up.
Thank god that I’m not that person who immediately screams when he gets startled by something. I just scream internally.
Oh my, wish me luck. ( I need kittens to hug. Seriously. I can’t play it alone in the dark.)
