  • My favorite scary game is the original Dead Space Slight smile

    Sure, it had it's share of jump scares, but they were tastefully placed to good effect.  What I like the most about it is the tense ambience the game had - to this day I swear I could hear whispers as I walked the empty corridors - it's like I was going increasingly paranoid... adding to the spine-tingling atmosphere.

    I haven't played any of the sequels yet, but one day I will... and I also look forward to the remastered version!  Hopefully they keep most of the same elements the original had.

    PS:  This game has one of the most memorable jump scares I've seen to this date - when it happened I made a real weird yelp... a combination of woah and AHHH!  I really wasn't ready for it.  The game also lured me into a false sense of security.
