Day 28 – The worst sequel to a game
I don’t know if it is THE worst sequel to a game… But it is definitely a fair one…
Alone in the Dark, originally known as Alone in the Dark: Near Death Investigation and informally known as Alone in the Dark 5 to avoid naming confusion, is the fifth installment of the survival horror video game series under the same name created by Atari. The game was released in 2008 and despite receiving mixed to negative reviews, Alone in the Dark was a financial success.
Day 24 – Your favourite gaming genre
It is a subgenre of action-adventure video games inspired by horror fiction. These games make the player vulnerable by providing them with less ammunition and fewer heavy weapons than other action games. Although combat can be a part of the gameplay, the player is in various ways made to feel less powerful than in typical action games, because of limited ammunition, health, speed, or other limitations. The player is also challenged to find items that unlock the path to new areas, and solve puzzles at certain locations. Games make use of strong horror themes, and the player is often challenged to navigate dark maze-like environments, and react to unexpected attacks from enemies.
It has great games/ series, such as:
- Fatal Frame
- Silent Hill
- Resident Evil
- Alone in the Dark
- Alan Wake
- Left 4 Dead
- Rule of Rose
- Dead Space
Day 19 – Your least favourite character in a video game
When the Tank comes… Well, it is always hell QQ
Left 4 Dead (abbreviated as L4D) is a cooperative first-person shooter video game. Set during the aftermath of an apocalyptic pandemic, the game pits its four protagonists—dubbed the “Survivors”—against hordes of the infected. There are four game modes: a single-player mode in which allied characters are controlled by AI; a four-player, co-op campaign mode; an eight-player online versus mode; and a four-player survival mode. In all modes, an artificial intelligence (AI), dubbed the “Director”, controls level pacing and item placements, in an attempt to create a dynamic experience and increase replay value.
Day 04 – Your favourite video game series
I was in doubt about Mario, specifically Mario Kart, but I don’t if that is considered a series, so I chose Fatal Frame.
Fatal Frame is a survival horror video game series consisting of four installments and a spin-off. The first and second games in the series were released for the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox, the third game is only available for the PlayStation 2, and the fourth game has been released for the Wii. The series’ plot deals with ghosts, exorcism, and dark Shinto rituals.
Created by Tecmo, Fatal Frame is one of the most well received survival horror games to date. It was a unique entry in the genre, as the player explores a mansion and takes photographs of ghosts in order to defeat them. The Fatal Frame series has since gained a reputation as one of the most distinctive in the genre, with the first game in the series credited as one of the best-written survival horror games ever made, by UGO Networks.
Day 18 - Film that is your guilty pleasure
I just LOVE the game (the series as a whole) and the movie is a pretty good adaptation, of course it turned out to be a trashy film, but it’s great! =D
Silent Hill is a 2006 movie based on the Silent Hill series of survival horror video games created by Konami. The film, particularly its emotional, religious and aesthetic content as well as its creature design, includes elements from Silent Hill, Silent Hill 2 and 3. The film also includes some music, such as “Wounded Warsong”, from Silent Hill 4: The Room. A game in the series released after the film, Silent Hill Homecoming, incorporates some elements of the film.
The film follows a mother, Rose, who takes her troubled adopted daughter, Sharon, to Silent Hill, the town the girl cries out for while sleepwalking. After being unconscious in a car crash outside the town, Rose awakens and is shocked to find Sharon missing and the town engulfed in an alternate reality of fog and falling ash. While searching for Sharon, she faces reality shifts and monsters while uncovering her daughter’s connection to the town’s past.
