  1. Not being a dick, but i can’t handle this dudes narration and voice… I don’t even know why, it’s just one of those things.

  2. I think dying light could have been on there. Not high ranked or anything during the day isn’t that bad unless you get swarmed by like vitals bombers demolishes or even toada. But night time when the volatiles come out and half the zombies are sprinters not to mention your two options are see and be seen or be blind and kinda be seen. Its a constant sense if fear and dread not just jump scares.

  3. I admire the purity of the Alien franchise. Obviously not counting the 3rd and 4th Alien movie and the Colonial Marshal game.

  4. I haven’t played Isolation but I heard great things. That said, I was never more scared playing a game than the first time I played the original Dead Space. The follow ups got too focused on shooty shooty to be scary, but the way they used light and sound in the first one had me on edge the whole time.

  5. How did F.E.A.R.2 out beat the original F.E.A.R.? The first entry had more craftsmanship to it’s unsettling environment than anything the second game could throw at it
