crisissuit3 (IE: headlamp runs out of batteries, your HUD flickers, and you hear an eary noise)

I thought the HUD flicker was pretty cool, i haven't really seen any other games do that the way FEAR did.

im not saying they were bad. im just saying that they gave the scary parts away, basically making you brace for a scare.

If they didn't, you would get the shit scared out of you, and you would have not bought the game. That of course is only if you played the demo.

Have any of you guys played Perseus Mandate? I put it off for some time for a couple reasons. One, I was burned out on FEAR having played it to death obsessing over making full level no scratch videos of it on Extreme. Two, I'd read that PM got terrible reviews, so I assumed it was worse than Extraction Point, esp considering TimeGate Studios developed it vs Monolith.

Overall I was very impressed with PM though and I feel it was even better than EP. For one thing EP is too easy. There are lots of places you can just run past enemies, including the Power Armor. PM MAKES you fight the fight, and there are several good ones in it and good maps and nice new weapons and enemies too.

To me, the scary thing about FEAR is the intense firefights and excellent AI, esp if you play on Extreme with Max World detail, which allows them to knock over and take cover behind crates and such. Then I imagine what those bullets would do to me in the real world and go for a no scratch outcome. You can heighten that experinece even further by setting up what I call sneak and trap scenarios whereby you sneak by several AI only to have them join a group you're advancing toward once they hear the gunfire, essentially surrounding you.

This works even if you close doors behind you after sneaking by. In fact I like to close them just to give me a little more time before they come investigating. No dead to the world deafness of the AI like in other games where they can't hear what goes on 50' away from them. This is what the fear of FEAR is all about to me.

Here's a couple videos I made that are short excerpts of the full level ones showing just the trap part of the sneak and trap.

Here's a couple full level videos I made with the emphasis on humor, horror, and slow mo visual effects. The first has a bit of adlibbing in it to satirize the occult nature of the game, though it does have dark scenes that creep some out.

Hmmm. honestly, F.E.A.R. NEVER even scared me one bit.. I think one of the best games for "surprises" is Condemned: Criminal Origins. this game set the mood so well, with the environments, the music, the entire feeling was right. and when you walk around the corner expecting an enemy that isn't there, only seconds later to find him behind you about to kill you.. now THAT was something that surprised me.

Besides that, the story in Condemned is top-notch. :D

I'm up to the part where you fight a Verdugo in the sewers in RE 4. Wicked beasts they are.

RE 4 was awesome as well. The atmosphere was almost perfect. Loved that game...
