    Survival Horror

    I can relate. If you have a merchant, then your game has an economy. And earnings in such games are related, among other things, to killing enemies who drop currency. This motivates you to kill even more enemies, which does not quite correspond to the idea of survival. In the old horror titles...

    Survival Horror

    And which element can belong to survival horror? Resource management and backtracking? Before BIO, these elements were in many games that are not related to horror. The goal behind these mechanics is important. The context itself. If you don't have a goal to scare a person, you don't do horror...

    Survival Horror

    Well, most horror games are action adventure games because they use action mechanics, unlike point-and-click games. And Outlast as well. Of course, this is the idea of many developers who made these games. They used different means to convey this survival experience. But people have made a...

    Survival Horror

    If you want to use my logic, you should say that Casablanca, Cowboy Bebop and even Seven are representatives of the same genre called "criminal pessimism", which was actually a marketing motto. And such a category as "survival horror" is simply abstract. Even on your description of...

    Survival Horror

    Outlast can also be called a survival horror game, because hide-and-seek is the protagonist's means of survival in horror. Resident Evil 6 can be called a survival horror game, because it has some mechanics and design features from previous horror titles. But if you put these two games...

    An Update

    By "she" I meant America. This is a habit associated with the specifics of the Russian language. For some reason, I can't edit my posts here.

    An Update

    I kind of didn't get it a bit. Umbrella Corps, Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village are perfectly connected and gradually develop one big storyline. Resident Evil 7 established a new pathogen, but the next game did not ignore it, but gave more information, showing a new vector of infection...

    Explanation

    I'm not hiding from my words. If you want to tell me something or discuss the current situation, there is no reason to run away from it. This does not necessarily mean that we should conflict or ignore each other. I understand (although this is not my favorite game, it is still understandable...

    RE Village Thoughts

    Well, given the latest news, they will clearly need a product that is not threatened with withdrawal from sales, because it does not use stolen textures, ha-ha! But seriously speaking, I really see some things that can be improved. For example, developers can change that "Mesoamerican" drawing...

    RE Village Thoughts

    I noticed recently that Heisenberg says this "mano a mano" line, which was also used by Jake. This happens somewhere at the beginning of the battle with him. I also really liked that line about David and Goliath. It created the right vibe for me.

    The Matrix Franchise

    Has anyone played Enter the Matrix? An incredibly clunky game, but I really enjoyed it, lol. I have a lot of good memories with it. The most fun part is the battle with the agents. In general, there is no purpose to fight with them, because they are only immortal pursuers. Besides their...

    The Matrix Franchise

    I just find it hard to believe how good this trailer is: Really enjoyed it! People in Russia usually love the entire trilogy, so it was a big surprise for me when I found out that many of the Western audience do not like the second and third films. By the way, I highly recommend The...

    The main RE characters best and worst versions?

    I feel that I want to speak only about Chris this time. Best: Resident Evil Village. I like how Chris' design in this game is a combination of all his images throughout the entire history of the series. First of all, Chris has realistic body proportions thanks to photogrammetry. During the MT...

    Random Thoughts: Biohazard/Resident Evil edition

    At some point, I just start to think that the true survival horror game is the very first BIO, because survival horror is not even a genre, but just a motto for this game, which hardly anyone uses in Japan. Dino Crisis is not a survival horror, but a panic horror, for example.

    Random Thoughts: Biohazard/Resident Evil edition

    Interestingly, Kamiya is not a horror fan, so he intentionally made the game more cinematic and easier to open the door for new players. This in general was the reason why BIO2 became a departure for some fans, and the developers expected this.
