Another overhyped "horror" game, made by someone who can't tell the difference between true fright and jumpscares. Jumpscares AREN'T SCARY, they're STARTLING.

Silent Hill nailed it when it came to horror, but that's just my opinion

I haven't watched or played Erie yet, but I 'unno, I think jumpscares are fine when they aren't the only thing a game relies upon. It should be both and the jumpscares should be amplified by how the atmosphere hypes you up. I love it when you're walking around expecting a jumpscare, it doesn't happen, you suddenly feel safe again and then BAM -- right in yo' face. But I do agree with you that jumpscares aren't the be all and end all of horror games. I just think they should work hand-in-hand.

Resident Evil 2... The Interrogation room:

>Hey, quest item on the back wall! Something's going to attack me!
>Get to the back wall- Ok, so when I pick it up something's going to attack...
>Pick it up- Nothing? Ok maybe when I walk back?
>Almost at the exit- Wow! So maybe this just happened to be one of those actually ************** ! (as a licker jumps through the glass window at you)

THAT is horror.

That's why I loved Amnesia. They just made a truly terrifying atmosphere by showing a monster only a few times here and there without him ever just jumping in front of you
