No but I didn't think those games were scary either tbh. I will say maintaining ammo and supplies seems harder in Evil Within than Resident Evil or Silent Hill, since those games just throw weapons and ammo and health at you.maz89 wrote:Is Evil Within as scary as the first REs or Silent Hill? Survival horror games with jump scares and low inventory of weapons/meds used to terrify me as a kid. Still does. I think.
Stealth and stealth kills are also an important part of Evil Within 1 & 2 (And weren't quite things in the older Resident Evil and Silent Hill games), to the point its honestly a little overpowered in TEW2. There are definitely points where you have to straight up fight guys though, and stealth won't help you there. The first game could be a bit schizophrenic about this- like the opening section of the game doesn't give you guns and requires you to sneak around, but there are other times where you fighting waves of dudes in an arena, some which of can insta-kill you with a single attack.
TEW2 doesn't seem to have a lot of traps either, and well the first game had a lot of Saw bullshit designed to kill you- my favorite were treasure chests booby-trapped with explosives if you opened them too quickly. If you opened them slowly and then immediately shut them again it would defuse the bomb.
This is all an elongated way of saying that TEW1 kind of fuckin' hates you the player for even daring to try and overcome its bullshit, but that also made it a fun and interesting experience IMO. TEW2 seems more friendly in general, though you can still get fucked up if you approach things in a bad or dumb way.
