Top 5 reasons survival horror needs The Evil Within

Postby SlasherJPC » Jun 03, 2014 10:48 pm

Hey guys! This is my first post and I've been excited for The Evil Within ever since the announcement. I just absolutely want this game to get the attention it deserves and been trying to get the word out why The Evil Within could end up being a fantastic title.

I created a video for the top 5 reasons survival horror needs The Evil Within but if you don't want to watch. I will list it below:

phpBB [video]



1. Atmosphere
2. Puzzles and Traps
3.Invincible enemies
4.Sneaking and Hiding
5. Saving points (though I had recently discovered there are indeed checkpoints, bummer)

There are more reasons why, but I felt like these were the strongest reasons, aside from the game being created by Shinji Mikami of course. Do you guys have any other reasons why you think TEW will be important for the survival horror genre. Also to the mods, if you guys need any help with the site for media, or anything else, please be sure to PM me. Would love to assist any way I can.

Good to see you here Justin
I've already checked the video out, and I agree with you.

Especially the part about Balancing Action VS Powerlessness, I don't think a game had hit that sweet spot since REMake.

Great video.

But 6th reason would be it one of few triple AAA survival horror game we have seen in a while.

the other game is alien isolation.

if both were successful it would be return of Triple AAA horror games.

Totally agree with you on that one! I hope both of them do extremely well.

Too bad they're both coming out in the same month, they'll eat into each other's sales.
I know I don't want to play two horror games in a row, they're quite daunting.
