And yet again, I arrive super late to this discussion. >.> I absolutely adore the SH series. I've only played 2, 5, Origins and Shattered Memories. I was really disappointed with Shattered Memories, though. I've never had a chance to play the first game and since it was a "remake" of the first game, I was really excited. It had a couple of good "surprise scare" moments, environmentally speaking, but in general I found it didn't compare with the other games. >.> Particularly because you couldn't fight back and it was the same attack scenarios over and over. When I was allowed to explore unhindered, it was really interesting, but because I couldn't fight back and literally just had to run, I found myself more frustrated and bored than scared. TT.TT Which was saddening.
I loved 5, though. Of the games I've played, it's the scariest, but I've heard 3 and 4 are the best in the scare factors. I really want to play them. XD I just haven't gotten the will power to go out, get them and play them yet.
Anyone excited for 8 (it still makes me laugh that they consider Origins (0) as 6 and Shattered Memories (1) as 7)? I think the new environments and creatures look fantastic and the premise of having a character who is going to jail (so will most likely have some serious guilt in his life) will be going into a town that picks apart the psychology of the guilty. Super interesting, can't wait. XD
