Game Front Podcast #7 – Horror Games, GTA Sales, Next-Gen Graphics

In honor of Halloween (even though it’s a day later), we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about horror games this week. So for our seventh podcast, we’ve spent some time thinking about our favorite horror games (and some of the earliest we’ve experience) — among them Resident Evil, Resident Evil II, Silent Hill and more.

But it’s not Halloween anymore, and there’s lots of other news to discuss this week — like the fact that you can’t play Battlefield 4 on the 4GB version of the Xbox 360 Slim; you need a hard drive, and it doesn’t come with one. And did you hear that Grand Theft Auto V has shipped more than 29 million copies? We’ve googled it — that’s a lot. Also kicking up a lot of dust is the Xbox One’s 720p native resolution versus the Playstation 4′s 1080p, because more p’s means it’s better, right?

Check out the story on Battlefield 4 and Xbox 360 Slim 4GB that we mention, as well as the GTA V PC rumor that Ross brought up.

Nice podcast, enjoyed listening to it. I was a little surprised that none of you mentioned any new horror games though.

Yeah, I honestly find it hard to call favorites at all, really. I went with RE2 because Mark mentioned Resident Evil, but I’ve had a great time with lots of new stuff, including Outlast, Slender: The Arrival and lots of other indie horror stuff. We talk a lot about newer (and obscure-ish or old) horror games on our HorrorScope column. http://www.gamefront.com/tag/horrorscope/

Before any of my colleagues here score with this, I went with Silent Hill because I am old. I really enjoyed Outlast as well, but Silent Hill is the one I can never forget.

Yeah, there are some old classic games that we’ll always remember. And while that’s true, I believe horror games are going to get scarier and scarier as technology advances. I can’t even imagine what it will be like to play SOMA with an Oculus Rift in 2015.
