RE: Penumbra: The Remake

ok, i think i said that wrong, you don't play penumbra to win like you would a normal game, you play it to have an experience. and penumbra is most certainly NOT a fun game, nor is it meant to be. frictional games has even said in a few blog posts that they hate it when developers compromise gameplay elements that would make the game much better so that they could meet the standards of being fun. for example, you don't run around with a shotgun blasting the tuurngait to shit, you're not some ninja that does parkour moves to avoid enemies, you're just some regular old guy running away from monsters. and i'm sorry, but there is absolutely NOTHING fun about being scared shitless, sure it can be fun to watch someone get scared, or to laugh at yourself for being scared, but when you're in the moment and you're freaking the fuck out there is no way that you're having fun. and sure it might make you feel certain emotions, but if anything they just make it feel more real and interesting thus making it more scary.

and with the whole graphics improvement thing, sure if it was a whole new generation that wouldn't be an issue, but if anyone who had played the original penumbra played it it would kill immersion. you would already know everything that would happen, you would already know the whole story, the only change that you'd be able to focus on is the graphics since that's the only thing that'd changed. now MAYBE if they changed up the story or the level design it would work, but only then since players would have something else to focus on other than the improved graphics.
