Let Me Tell You Something

If you ever have the opportunity, you must play Fatal Frame at night. The PS2 game the first of a currently four part series (3 parts have made it to the US). They also happen to be some of the scariest games I've ever played. It might be because I have a huge irrational fear of ghosts in any capacity. Playing in the dark and alone brings you into the game world so well though and so I suggest everyone try it at least once. Surround sound would also help with the horror, but it works quite fine for me without that. 

Please play it in these conditions if the chance ever comes up. For those of you who were scared of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, this is so much more terrifying. Of all the horror games out there, the series is one of the few I've ever jolted in my seat from. Or shouted. Or felt dread over when exploring new rooms. 

That's all I had to say. Regular blogging shall resume later.

Fatal Frame is one of those games -- along with Siren and a few others -- that I keep meaning to buy, but have yet to do so.

I'll definitely get it eventually, though, and when I do, I'll do just as you say and try playing it at night :)

:) Fantastic. I'm sure you'll find it quite the experience.

I'm glad you bring up Siren as well... I looked for it years and years but finally picked it up semi-recently and let me tell you it is not so good :(. It starts out absolutely TERRIFYING and pretty interesting, but it's just such a hard game that the scariness gets diffused rather quickly. Still an interesting type of horror game though... I'd suggest looking for Kuon if you don't have that on your list as well.
