So I know there are quite a few folks out there who appreciate this genre and while it quite broad I thought I would make a dedicated thread to support these types of games, much like the Roguelike thread.
While I love the general genre of horror and its classic tropes I do however struggle to play a lot of these games. Not that I get scared or whatever by them, nor do I get scared from movies of the same ilk. Though the genre is subdivided and has multiple subgenres as an example:
- Survival Horror
- Action Horror
- Psychological Horror
- Jump Scare Horror
- Reverse Horror
Now from personal experiences, I do enjoy watching playthroughs of said games (and even movies) and have no issue with this, but make me play the game and I nope out very, very quickly and easily. My aim is to try and breach this genre and have invited my wife to play them with me. Though I do have certain criteria and themes that I just generally don’t like or have no interest in. Things like Five Nights at Freddy are just there, in my opinion, to cause you to have frights. That should not be the only requirement for horror and should contain a multitude of factors, like psychological.
Some personal experiences and personal loves in this genre include:
Man of Medan
Some titles I would like to get and play include:
Resident Evil 2 Remake
Resident Evil 3
Some notable and upcoming titles in this genre include:
Resident Evil Villiage
So what are some of your experiences and recommendations?
