The horror genre of gaming seems to have all but died out as far as Triple A gaming is concerned. But there was one game that came out 10 years ago, that forever changed the way I looked at horror games: Dead Space...

Welp, I didn't make it in time for Halloween so I really took my time with this one! Hope you guys enjoy it and be careful out there! Wouldn't want you guys to shit your pants and all that. Also, I didn't know what sort of background music to use for Dead Space as the game's music is all bombastic orchestral pieces that are kind of distracting so I put some Left 4 Dead songs in there just FYI HUGE THANKS to Rythaze for the AWESOME thumbnail art ► kgpost.info

Yeah, but then as typical as you can get with any horror-based media, you die no matter what. Horror humpers are usually after some kind of adrenaline high akin to masturbation of feelings you'd never experience otherwise. The story is ALWAYS THE SAME. But people don't care, because they're too busy jacking off to the jump scares. It's like there's 1 of 3 scenarios you're gonna get. Things are going nuts and you're finding order in the chaos because your senses are somehow blocked be it fog to "fuck you, we're making noise to piss you off". Second, quiet. Things get quiet, then they get loud, or they look like they're going to get loud, then they don't, but then they do instead, or it's some random variation of "BOO" vs blah. This is "horror" the way most people think of it. Just one big long suspense builder with a money shot. Rinse and repeat. Again, this is not story telling or game play. This is atmosphere that is forced down your throat. Last, and definitely least, oh no you've been betrayed by some random figure you have a boner for. It's safe to assume that her pussy has long since been lost to the digestive system of any of the most basic necromorph. She's a random chick on space ship of death. She's dead. This is the attitude that should be taken when the game starts. Obviously, it doesn't make sense that she's alive during any part of this no matter what evidence there is. But no, you're fooled by a giant helix penis cus hope for pussy or some feeling you think exists that's really a hormonal imbalance in your system. And then to top it all off, none of it means anything, because you die in the stupidest jump scare fashion at the end of the game in a cutscene that you have no control over. I don't really care what it sets up for the next game. If I put in all that work, I want some satisfaction, so there better be a good ending where I remembered that sitting alone in a dark room is usually a bad idea in my story universe. That means there better be a huge, impossible, gargantuan mission that no one would want to do in order to obtain said ending. Let it pull a Shadow Hearts on you and use the bad ending to set up the next game. Who cares? There's no joy to a no-win scenario. And that's exactly what this game personifies. Death scenes are inconsequential. You fuck up, you die. Duh. That's war. Don't die. Which is why all quick time events are unnecessary, as they always are. I already mastered PaRappa the puppy wigger supreme. I'm good with "hit this button or no win" mechanics. But that's honestly going off on a tangent that doesn't even belong to the topic at hand. To say Dead Space 1 is one of the best survival horror genre games is basically correct. It is the top piece of shit in a genre of cheap thrills with an ever-forgiving audience that just wants to experience manufactured fear for whatever reason, being the reason that they put up with playing through the same story with a different skin 10 million times in a row. Horror sucks as it relies on mental weakness in order to be appealing. I'd rather be rewarded for mental fortitude with insanely hard gameplay in which you have the choice to not be a generic, stupid horror movie victim after all is said and done and die like a bitch.

Can't say I agree that Indie devs are good at making horror games. All the indie devs do is making walking simulators with the occasional jumpscare, because they are too lazy to actually create some damn game mechanics.

I would say the one thing that held back Dead Space just a little, was the Music (Which luckily is something you can fix). Several times the music gave away that a necromorph had entered the room, from the music changing. Turning the music off and leaving all the other sounds on though, makes it so much scarier!

Horror games like Dead Space and Resident Evil 4 age surprisingly well. The visuals are still pretty good, the atmosphere is still phenomenal, and the overall story and themes still hold together well. You could make the argument that RE4's gameplay is a little outdated but I feel like that adds to the terror

Dead Space 1 and 2 are 2 of my favorite games ever and are both solid 10/10s. DS3 wasnt as great but it still had good lore and was interesting despite its more action and coop oriented style. Its a solid 8/10 for me but the first 2 are just uncontested in the genre and objective quality for their time and even by modern standards they hold up really really well.

The fate of the Dead Space series is a rather sad one. From the amazing original. To a sequel that was almost as good if not better then the original... To a third game that killed the series and eventually ended up tanking the studio behind it.
AussieLuvtail 28 күн мурун
One of the things that makes this my favourite horror game is the dirty trick it plays on you at 25:40. You've been using workbenches the entire game, and every single time the room its in has been a safe space, you can take your time, ponder your upgrades, reload all your guns, take as much time as you like. But on just ONE workbench in the mining deck an enemy spawns behind you ten seconds after you open the bench and attacks you while you're using it. The terror I had when that happened was ten times higher because the game had convinced me I was perfectly safe. What a brilliant move, anyone making any kind of horror game should take note!
