I would definitely recommend Dead Space 2, i prefered it over Dead Space 1 because 2 has more set piece moments and action compared to 1 which was all about the scares

 

Shopto.net are selling Dead Space 2 for £11.86 so now is a great time to pick it up

Yep!

Start with deadspace one though...

 

Just think of the neromorphs as veg you're chopping up for your tea :smileylol: (might make it less scary for you?)

 

 

Edit:

Sorry must of posted around the same time as groundbreaker..

Actually i suppose if you think you might get too scared, i could break my rule and say DS2..Only if you really think you'll scare that easily, as DS2 is more action and less scare. :smileywink:

 

But Hey you want to deep your toe in the 'horror' pool, so...? plus you might like it and then the story wouldn't be ruined by playing them out of order...(?)

Yea its not vital you have played Dead Space 1 first but its advisable because things happen in DS2 that you wont understand if you havent played DS1

I am the biggest wuss ever. I hate scary games. I got Dead Island last week and couldn't get beyond the first tough zombie lol. Simply because any time he came near me i would run away... ended in me being munched. *Sigh*

Try Siren: Blood Curse. While its not scary it is rather creepy in a traditional Japanese horror way.

Dead Space was ok, Dead Space 2 is like a stuck record desperate for ideas, repeating the same areas and having you go round in circles Zzzzzzzzz... I'm bored and struggling already at chapter 6 constantly thinking about the other 9 or so levels left to go..

You can see why they're changing it a lot in Dead Space 3. Desperate for ideas me thinks.

Actually the game you should be playing is Amnesia Dark Descent (PC only :() its worth playing as it is not like dead space which just does mostly jump scares but provides a deep atmosphere and interesting backstory havent finished due to this but the reviews speak for themselves

Dead Space 1 and 2 have a creepy atmosphere aswell due to the sound and lighting they use in the game

Never heard of that Amnesia Dark Descents... Has me intrigued to check it out.

I keep meaning to ask in the 'PC thread' if my PC could even run games. Since ive just started portal2 and with the steam connections, its had me thinking about trying out the PC.

Well if you know about steam the summer sale is on at the moment and would be a great time to pick up some deals amnesia for example was only £3 something (UK) and you prob could run it talking about pc games in general valve games generally dont tax most systems

haha, i had to trade deadspace 1 after a month...the scares kept *****ing me up lol.  ...pretty horriific those creatures. ...you knew they were coming aswel, shuffling in the vents or walls then bam - new pants please.

 

oh & i'm 27! ...not sure how long ago D1 was released? ..had it that week anyway.  

 

1 of my best scary moments i can remember in video games was back on the ps2 resident evil. 1st time you meet a hunter, it cut to like a movie scene of this thing just running down the corridors that you'd just been down - you see it through the eyes of the hunter..then see its claw opening the door.

cut back back to you standing down that corridor. ammo check...handgun. ...oh *****

Dead Space games are awesome, I highly reccommend them.

 

Dead Space is quite a scary game. I never found Dead Space 2 scary though, managed to complete that in one day.
