The Wolf Among Us

It another TellTale Game series(remember Walking dead?)

basically another one of those fairy tale gone griity, reality and dark type things that involve someone being murdered. I think it is based off a comic called Fable.

You play as the Big Bad Wolf who happens to be a sheriff/detective.

The first episode is very good, TellTale might have another classic in their hands.

the new amnesia game is...okay, dark descent is better.

The problem with the new amnesia game is that it isn't even made by frict games, they produced it, the people that made "dear esther" made the new amnesia game, and somehow, well, imagine taking out everything that made dark descent so pants shittingly scary, but keeping the dark atmosphere and the story, that is the new amnesia game.

So no (relatively few and well placed/paced) jump scares and no "HOLY SHIIIT" moments.

tbh, I've never even played amnesia, I just like to read about games. Was the first one really that scary?

The pacing, it isn't a jumpscare every 5 minutes, there is a build up, for instance, you might not encounter anything for 20-25 minutes, but you don't know that, you are constantly anticipating shit to happen, compound that with the atmosphere the game brings, you will be scaring yourself more than the game scares you.

Also the game encourages you not to look directly at the monster, and the monster is so horrifying to me, the first time I caught a slight glimpse of it, I was like "WHAT THE FUCK MAN??!?!?!"


go and play it, it goes on sale at steam quite frequently, especially since Halloween is coming up.

thats cool. seems like they hit the right formula there and the game was even made cheap, like compared to Dead Space, which still is creepy, but with way bigger budget

Cry of fear is another horror gem you should check out. A half life 1 mod that came out 2 years ago. It is a jump scare game but it is done very well. It is silent hill gone fps.
