Hey, /vr/. Can somebody Bleed-ill me on classic horror games? Which ones still hold up as scary and/or are worth playing because of interesting game mechanics? (also: the less mainstream/lesser known the better)

>> No.4067791

They're all shit except for the Kenji Eno Trilogy, which is still unsettling and disturbing to this day.

>> No.4067890

Illbleed still holds up to this day for being the most unique horror game of all time pretty much.

>> No.4067925

Sweet Home is worth trying, you'd think there's no way you could make a stumpy-head RPG on the NES scary at all but if you play it alone at night you will be scared. I have very little patience for old fashioned RPG gameplay in my old age but I was able to grind a little and get ahead of the level progression without being too horribly bored, they level you at a pretty nice pace

D2 is the only playable one out of the three.

D is kinda slow, I guess, but Enemy Zero is perfectly playable unless you're bad.

I hope you've played Blue Stinger as well, anon. Of course I don't know if it counts as "survival" horror since you can just grind to your hearts's content and buy all the op weapons and healing items.

Hell Night by Atlus, released in EU/PAL in English

Weird sort of maze/adventure game with no combat, but you have these action-y sequences where a monster is chasing you (and there's a button dedicated to looking behind you) that are actually pretty tense. The game mostly takes place underground and is effectively creepy.

>> No.4069539

Illbleed is good if you want to stream it or if you want to get high with some /vr/ loving friends and have fun. It's not a horror game, its overall shitty and I cannot overstate how horrible the gameplay is. I don't regret playing it because I got couple of hearty chuckles out of it at least.

Hellnight is pretty fucking rad on the other hand.

Dino Crisis 1 is a must, ignore pc and ps1 and emulate the dreamcast version. DC2 is also essential tho its more of an action game with very engaging gameplay than a horror game.

Countdown Vampires for ps1.

Everyone will readily admit it's a "bad" game in terms of pure gameplay. It's everything else that it does that makes it worth playing -- it's like the Plan 9 of video games.

There's really nothing wrong with the gameplay, unless you're a spastic who just runs around the levels and into traps without any thought or caution. Even the creator says it's not for the average person
>"Illbleed requires a high degree of intelligence to play, there are many mysteries and horror (old and new). I attempted to mix the early visions of all the famous directors: Cameron, Spielberg, Lucas, Miyazaki, and Kurosawa. It was just an entire mix of entertainment that many people couldn't understand. To me, the negative reviews of the game did not affect me at all. I just looked toward the future and have a vision," Nishigaki said.

Ronin Blade / Soul of the Samurai is a flawed but neat Resident Evil clone set in a chambara-type universe, but keeping the zombies and general body horror stuff around.

The fact that the combat is based around swordplay takes away some of the tension and survival aspects, but it also makes the game super comfy and satisfying to master

SH1 has been retroactively considered a good game.
When it was released was a 6'5-7'5 game. The quality of SH2 and 3 made 1 more popular as it is an essential part in the storyline but mechanicaly is not that good.
That said, is one of the better RE clones because it has its own personality.

>> No.4074457

Scariest game I ever played (note:I played through SH2) is ecco the dolphin defender of the future.
If I would tell you why the game is pure horror it would ruin it. But luckily we got the spoiler tag:
1. first area, you are near a riff and when you look towards the endless depth of the ocean you see shades of sharks everwhere in the far distance[/spoiler
2. first boss is a giant shark you have to lure into a trap multiple times, by swimming in front of his mouth. If he catches you once you die, but you don't die insta, you see a sequence long sequence with ecco in the mouth of the giant shark as he bites multiple times and you hear a loud crunch every time and bones breaking
3. you will find a cave you can swim into. Once you are in the entrance you get "teleported" into a completly black huge room/cave with a giant octopus at the bottom trying to kill you
4. Next level you get into an natural underwater cave labyrint with a not so easy to notice huge hole at one of the crossings. If you dare to swim through that crossing a GIGANTIC moray eel will dash out of the of the hole and crush you to instadeath with its jaws
5. You get into the future, and future the ocean looks different, bright but oddly cyan blue. And in the distance you see big oddly shaped things swim around at high speeds. When you get close to them you find out that these huge monsters are dolphins of the future. They got weird ugly bodies with spikes and are bruta and intelligent.

But because that wasn'T scary enough, there is a part where you swim through a huge bright cave rock tube and then there splits the way and you can choose between going left or right. If you got right and swim for a while you suddenly will take damage from something... invisible. You don'T know what, no sound, no movement, but if you try to swim back our away you will at seemingly random points take damage again.

Ecco Defender of the future - horrors part 2:
6. (I skipping some stuff) then you get further into the future into a giant glass tank in the middle of the future ocean. The tank is big as a skyscraper, A huge tube made out of glass that is completely closed off. The water of the ocean is extremly dark/black and dirty looking. If you jump out of the watersurface the sky is dark and poisenous looking and in the distance outside you see other giant tanks/containers peeking out of the water in the far distance. In that level you have to dive to the bottom of the ocean inside the tank.
7. then you got into a underwater metal pipeline and tanks labyrinth system with huge spinning rotor blades, futuristic weird sharks and scorpians crawling up on the walls of the tanks and jump onto you like homing missles, and then crawl on your body damaging you
8. then further into the future aside from meeting the weird underwater sea monsters, you have to fight the final boss a giant alien underwater monster. This isn't AS scary as in past ecco games BUT you have to kill it buy first making a hole into it'S body, dont remember how that happened thought, then you get into the body of the alien and swim inside the alien, fighting the alien heart and killing it. That's at least contra level weird if not mortal kombat.
