The fact that you don't like or don't get into the game does not mean it is a bad game:

Are you for real?

That image could just as easily read "Stop disliking what I don't like", then have a screaming baby on it.

It would be just as accurate a representation of you as that image is of me.

Using reaction images in a serious discussion is suicide unless you're on an image board, which you aren't.

Also, you used the "game" word again, that word shouldn't be used in reference to Dear Esther
What has this world come to, when holding down W for half a hour while listening to some guy talking equals a good game. Lee/SexBad review pretty much sums it up.

There's currently NOTHING of the game shown, other than the title and some concept art and yet you are going around yelling how they shouldn't change gameplay.

I'm not spilling out Garbage, YOU are one of the person who don't understand the love of god.
Don't I say already that there's nothing of the game shown? Please don't recall facts to me what is already known.

Then is Amnesia only a Custom Story to Penumbra?
Rethink your logic.

Anmesia already has the same gameplay like Penumbra, are the devs just half passed because of this?
I think, not.

This people just don't understand art.

They should play their Call of Duty when they think it's art.

Really? It's no reason to read Frictional Games is not the developer?

Don't be angry when it's too late.

I didn't quite catch that could you rephrase what you just said?

There is this nice verb, "stop". and there's this other word: "fight". Put them together.
You won't solve anything like this.

I wasn't talking about art, neither were (and are) these people fans of CoD & Co (I'm just talking about those I spoke with, just to be clear about that).
It's just that the way of constructing fear used by Frictional Games didn't work for them. They simply weren't afraid.

Different kinds of people lead to different ways and kinds of perception, experience and opinion. Simple as that.

That's right. But the people are casual gamers and far away from games with art.

So, they stop playing Amnesia when they are in the archives and are thinking the game is boring.
They never played the whole game.
Yes, I never played Call of Duty also, but Amnesia said it isn't a game to win. And I think, to be not the superhero is the most important thing in a horror game. When people don't like it, they don't like horror. Or maybe only horror for teenagers like SAW.

RE: [www.nextfrictionalgame.com] Amnesia Discussion

My theory is this: Frictional Games wanted another company to help them and you want to know why? Because I believe Frictional Games has a lot planned out for this game and I wouldn't even be surprised if has double the scare factor in it and that's just a minimum; it could be infinitely scarier. Think about it; you want to release a game, but you have a shit ton of work to do. Frictional Games probably is having their team work on the first half and thechineseroom works on the other half full time so that they can release this game fast and I don't mean impatient fast; I mean completed with a pair of titties on the cover to complement it ;3

No, Frictional Games only needs new devs to continue Amnesia, because they have not time when working on their own, new project.

Retail, anyone? I sure hope so... Would love to put this in my best friends trick or treating bag Big Grin

I've come to learn to not fear the living, nor the dead... But the monsters that hide in closets.
