Thank you to the cute and wonderful SometimesLeelynReads who I am taking this from. I saw her post and immediately was like I am ALL over this. The #BEAutumn2019 Series: Braving New Worlds is hosted by https://fictionallysam.com and Clo (Book Dragons) Thank you!!
Today’s prompt is hosted by Lauren @ Northern Plunder. Thank you! This was so much fun.
The prompt is…
What horror worlds do you want to brave? Let us know about horror books, movies, podcasts, or video games you’re looking forward to consuming! (Or would only consume if you were that little bit braver)
So…I know this is a book blog but I am a woman of many interests so I’m going to switch it up and talk about video games since I LOVEEEE horror vidya games.
I’ve played video games since I was young. I was born to a pair of young nerds and video games are as much as a part of my life as books are. Video games are a lot like books honestly. The plots can be just as submersive and intricate. The characters as in depth, Especially horror video games. A lot of these I will NOT play and will simply watch let’s plays.
STORY TIME. When I was a young Amanda I begged my mother to buy a game called Clock Tower since I heard my friends at school talk about it. So finally she gave in and bought it for Christmas one year and played it for me and my sisters.
You guys…I was so scared I got physically ill from the game. LMAOOOO and I mean I vomited and everything. I actually got nightmares from this game!!!
FRIENDS, these are the graphics from said Clock Tower game:
Turrible…Simply turrible. In the end she ended up giving the game to one of my cousins since even looking at the cover gave me terrifying flashbacks lmaoo.
My mother was SICK OF ME.
ANYWAY, I HAVE GROWN. Ahahaha, so onto the prompt.
Click on each title of the video game to go to the wikipedia page for a more in depth description!!
I’ve also provided ya’ll with some fun pics of me :))))
Fatal Frame II is set in the fictional Minakami (皆神) region of Japan. The region is home to Minakami Village (lit. “All God’s Village”), an abandoned town where the majority of the game takes place. The player learns that Minakami Village was host to the “Crimson Sacrifice Ritual”, the failure of which caused the settlement to vanish—thus earning it the name “The Lost Village”. In the game’s present, there is an urban legend about the Lost Village, where people who become lost in the Minakami forest will become trapped forever in the village.
The protagonists of Fatal Frame II are Mio and Mayu Amakura, twin sisters who are visiting their favorite childhood playspot in Minakami before it is lost due to construction of a new dam. The main antagonist is the vengeful spirit of Sae Kurosawa, the sole Twin Shrine Maiden sacrificed for the failed ritual. She yearns to reunite with her twin sister Yae. Sae mistakens Mio for her sister, and wants to use Mayu to try and complete the ritual with her.
The Fatal Frame games whole point is that you capture and kill ghosts with the Camera Obscura and it’s terrifying as all hell. Some are easier than others and some are downright insane.I love horror and ghosts but…I will die of fright for sure. But before that, let’s capture some ghosts.
Synopsis: P.T. centers on an unnamed protagonist who awakens in a concrete-lined room and opens a door to a haunted corridor, in which he can only walk through a hallway which continuously loops and redecorates itself. The first time he passes, a radio reports on a familicide, which was committed by the father and later mentions two other cases exactly like it.
Later on, the protagonist encounters a hostile and unstable female apparition, presumably named Lisa.
Unfortunately this is a game that never came to be and yes I AM STILL VERY UPSET ABOUT IT. Ugh.
Silent Hill is legendary and Silent Hills was going to be legendary, this isn’t even a game, it’s a trailer hence the name PT – Playable Trailer. That doesn’t stop it from being one of the most nerve wracking gaming experiences in existence.
“Look behind you. I SAID, look behind you.”
God, I would love to just creep around in this haunted atmosphere for just a minute. Please…? Pretty…please?
Synopsis: As an anonymous night guard, you must survive 5 nights as you are hunted by five animatronics hell-bent on killing you. You are the night guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a Chuck-E-Cheese styled family restaurant. As the night progresses you are stalked by five animatronic characters looking to kill you.
I…doesn’t it sound really fun? No??? Just me that thinks it’s fun??
WELL, JULIET ALSO LOVES THIS GAME SO IT’S NOT JUST ME LMAO.
I was obsessed with this game for awhile and I don’t know I find it hilarious. It’s absolutely ridiculous. And okay, I guess mildly terrifying.
Also…nobody said I had to be the protagonist. I could be one of the animatronics after all…
Synopsis: Until Dawn is an interactive drama in which players assume control of eight young adults who have to survive on Blackwood Mountain until they are rescued at dawn. … An in-game system keeps track of all of the story clues and secrets that players have discovered, even across multiple playthroughs.
This game is really really fun and so cool. I loved the entire butterfly effect and the fact that your choices could change ANYTHING. Nobody was safe and anybody could live or die. I absolutely love games like this although it’s not great for my anxiety at all but they are SO much fun. My good friend Mandy actually gave this to me when my grandmother died and it helped keep my mind off of things and I would definitely want to be a part of this worldddd *Ariel voice*
Lmao, okay this was a really fun prompt. I had fun. Let me know what you guys think in the comments below and if you’ve ever played these games!
Later days ❤
