In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Cliff Bleszinski: "In The 60$ Disc Based Market Horror Doesn't Fly"

Posted on Wednesday, February 13 @ 07:21:10 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Former Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski had a lot to share about the current state of the horror genre after playing through Dead Space 3.

On his blog, Bleszinski explained why he believes there simply is no place for big budget horror games anymore, saying, "In the 60$ disc based market horror doesn’t fly - it’s the ultimate “Campaign Rental” that’s played for 2 days and traded in and I’m sure EA knows this. When we’re fully digital we’ll see more true horror games coming back. (Look at Amnesia and Slenderman on PC.)"

With regards to why this is the case, Bleszinski went on to explain how difficult it is to successfully create the desired horror-filled effect within the player. "Horror is hard, and suspense is even harder. It requires a true director's hand. A nudge this way and a moment plays as comedic, a nudge too far the other way and it's not scary at all. To compound it all, making a scary moment is kind of like trying to tickle yourself. You think it's scary, but you're never sure until you test it on someone who has never seen the moment," Cliff explained.
