And Amnesia's monsters are threatening. They are faster, stronger, and the player has no option to fight back.

They could show up at any time, in any place. The player feels vulnerable.

The player is discouraged from looking at them. So the players mind fills in blanks, with things that scare them the most.

If and when the player does get a look. The monsters are grotesque mutilated, twisted versions of humans.

Makes the player feel revolted, and wanting to get far away from the monster.
1. I never said anything in the context of hating on Amnesia. I said I don't find it scary. Is the only goal of this game to make you feel scared? If that were the case, it would have failed. But no, it's still fun, even though it doesn't scare me. I said that several times. People get pissy about me not being a scaredy cat.
2. The monsters aren't very scary looking to me. They just look like goofy big guys with claws, or occasionally with swords, etc. Nothing I haven't seen before.
3. The monsters growl like 5 minutes before you see them, they don't see you if you don't look at them or move, they are usually slower than you, they can be stunned if you throw stuff at them (except for brutes, but they'll pretty much kill you when they're around and there isn't anything you can do about it), and looking at them has no real consequences, just imaginary consequences because all you do is lose your "sanity", which comes back in no time. I have a video where I literally stare at one grunt for like 5 minutes while he stands in one place slapping a doorway. I stand there, my guy lays on the ground for a moment, I get back up, and the process repeats, but the monster is no closer to attacking me. So I just ran away and the monster chased me for a bit, but never caught me.
The only "weakness" you have in this game is the level of fear you allow yourself to give into. Daniel is able to fight and survive if you play like a man.
