What’s your opinion on what makes a good horror gameJanuary 28, 2020 at 8:16 pm #20538bzerk86ParticipantFUNKY VIPFUNK: 8,264Rank: Diamond-Back Gorilla
A game that does not rely on “jump scares”.
Some are good but not if it’s the entire reason for the game being spooky.January 28, 2020 at 11:16 pm #20607AdrianaModeratorFUNKY KINGFUNK: 23,045Rank: Diamond-Back Gorilla
Sound design! Alien: Isolation was phenomenal. I still have such vivid memories of listening for the Xenomorph’s footsteps from various hiding spots 😅. Good voice acting as well.
Another one that stood out for me was the first Silent Hill game (I wish they rebooted this series, there are always rumours that they will).
Agree about the jump scares.January 29, 2020 at 12:50 pm #20964AtlasParticipantFUNK: 659Rank: Humble Squirrel Monkey
I think a good horror game needs to have a lot in the unknown. because would you be scared if you knew everything that would happen? Personally no that defeats the thrill of itJanuary 29, 2020 at 5:23 pm #21022hidazipParticipantFUNK: 8,557Rank: Diamond-Back Gorilla
I know what will make a bad horror game.
Overusing jump scares, pitch black areas where you can’t see anything, using too much dark music.
You know it’s a good horror game if it’s scary even under daylight with happy music.
And the story is important too. You don’t just make everything scary. You have to build it up.
Scary scenes are only scary if they are not overused.January 30, 2020 at 6:59 am #21238TeslaParticipantFUNK: 4,119Rank: Psychic Gibbon
What makes a good horror game would probably be one that has good quality sound effects and has a background story to it I don’t like the one that don’t have them. example grannyFebruary 17, 2020 at 8:09 pm #23924XXDoubleHHXXParticipantFUNK: 2,146Rank: Wise Douc
Most people would say jump scares or darkness but I say plot development, if you don’t tell a good story the right way then it doesn’t work.February 19, 2020 at 3:24 am #24378Tjeff148ParticipantFUNK: 28,167Rank: Diamond-Back Gorilla
jumpscares (but not too much), good story, realismFebruary 19, 2020 at 3:46 am #24382LeWiseParticipantFUNK: 40,742Rank: Diamond-Back Gorilla
A good horror “game” is petscop imo.May 23, 2020 at 6:13 am #33047
Here’s what I agree that makes a good horror video game it is the atmosphere basically how you feel in the game do you feel secluded do you feel that your guns are going to run out do you feel that you’re in danger and you have to run the game allows you to fight and give you enough weapons you’d still be horror if the monsters have ways to get you down to take you down such as The evil within 2 which terrified the heck out of me
The music also plays a part of it
Has to be tense and scary
Jump-scare sparingly kind of work
hacking also take some part d acting has to be good in the video game to make you really care for the characters such as in The evil within 2
You have to feel for the characters and connect with themMay 23, 2020 at 6:15 am #33048
The story has to make sense
And really want you to see it’s conclusion
And side stories helpMay 23, 2020 at 6:16 am #33049AustraliaParticipantFUNK: 33,810Rank: Diamond-Back Gorilla

@AndrewRoblesfuture1987 I can’t wait to play The Evil Within 2! I got it on sale back in December, but I’m saving it for when I have a few days off. I absolutely loved the first Evil Within, an almost perfect match for my kind of game.May 23, 2020 at 6:59 am #33052
You will be in for a treat it’s pretty scary and fun too me in my opinion
You got it on sale I’m so happy for you I love sales
Yes save it for when you do have those
If you loved the first you will you got to love the sequel
Yes it’s a pretty good game the more time you have the more you will get out of the game I hope you get a good amount of enjoyment out of the game
Because it’s what makes a game funMay 23, 2020 at 7:01 am #33053
What makes a good horror game is the longevity the extra goodies the story the music the dialog and also the interactions follow the long dialogue
They got to instill fear in you
Like a creature you wouldn’t want to catch in a dark corner
You have to be a scared of the character you’re playing as
Game triggers emotions that is scary in itself to
Locations helps to savers locations of where they could put horror
