    I'm surprised SVEN/AOM:DC doesn't have it's own thread.

    Hope COF gets more likes.

    I'd rather have a legitimate release instead of a rushed one because someone made fake accounts.

    GoldSRC has this old-school flair that Source doesn't, same reason why some people think Quake is scary.

    Those mods rely on cheap scares like FEAR. Cry of Fear and Afraid of Monsters rely on an unsettling atmosphere. The enemies are just a bonus.

    Another mod in the works, Eawan, also uses atmosphere to it's advantage. There is nothing in any of the maps that will scare you or try to hurt you, but everything is just fucking creepy.

    I'm well aware it's for the Source Engine. I mentioned it because it uses an unsettling atmosphere. Read the context.

    The original FEAR was actually pretty damn scary in my opinion, the people who made it really knew how to do horror without overused shit like screamers, they paced the game in a way that you never really expected when something would happen

    Honestly did not find FEAR scary at all. By the midgame point I was actually getting rather annoyed by the OMFGBLARRRRGH creepy little girl pops up out of nowhere!

    I still think it's a pretty cool game though. It was fun, the soundtrack was good, and it could keep a pretty tense atmosphere even when you started to predict every jump scare.

    If I had a nickel for every cheap jump scare involving ladders... I'd have, like, 25 cents.

    FEAR was nothing to me, it really didn't get to me....
    but in NH2, it was much like FEAR; in the way of atmosphere and the same kind of jump scares...
    Underhell, well, the house just fucked you up in parts, it didn't need jumps, it already had the most errie atmosphere I have played in a mod.

    I would go more indepth of why FEAR wasn't really scary (maybe part of it that you could get a beam weapon that turned everything into ash that was in your path) but that's not the topic on hand.

    I thought FEAR wasn't scary at all, in fact, I made fun of it while playing the first time.
    When you think about it, little girls are only scary when they're horribly fucked up like in The Exorcist.

    The only times when I was startled (not scared, startled) in FEAR was in the hospital hallway where you walk to the end and a skeleton pops out of the river of blood and when you turn around to climb down a ladder, you see Alma (silly name BTW) standing there all of a sudden.

    I think one of the things that made AOM scary was the overall lack of lighting, ammo, and the way the flashlight worked in general.

    First enemy, unloaded so much ammo everywhere. After awhile I just turned on godmode and gave up being scared shitless endlessly.

    Not sure if this goes here but since Afraid of Monsters was made by these guys...

    The guy who hosts the Sven Co-Op AOM:DC server needs a new host.

    If anyone knows someone, it would be nice.

    People still played it. Coccyx is having some trouble finding a host.

    As long as you didn't go spouting SnBP and Facepunch shit, you were welcomed.

    Actually, at the time I spent in the server.. people asked him if he was going to host a server for it. He said, "Most likely not." Something about the files being more complicated for Sven co-op or something.

    He tried to host it on his PC recently because of the severe lack of servers. It didn't go well. He said he'll try to get a new modem and try again, but he really shouldn't need too. The point being, he still wants to put the Sven Co-Op back up.

    (I know this is a week-old post, but...) You just compared Nightmare House 2 to FEAR. Good god, man, I'd strangle you if I could.

    And Afraid of Monsters relied way more on jump scares than NH2 did. NH2's best moments came in the form of environmental scares (the collapsing hallway, impossible air ducts, those damned mannequins) whereas AoM relied entirely on "OHSHIT LOOKOUT A ZOMBIE JUST BURST THROUGH THAT DOOR!"

    Most of which were lifted wholesale from movies/other games and therefore were not scary since the punchline could be seen from a mile away.

    Also, Afraid of Monsters didn't have nearly as many Chuck Norris jokes that completely destroyed the mood.

    The thing that scared me the most in NH2 was the shower section, because I could hear a distant splashing noise but I couldn't tell were from, so I instantly assumed it was lots of scary ass enemies rushing through some water to get to me. Turns out it was just water coming from a shower head.

    Apart from that and the immediate beginning, it wasn't that scary, to be honest. It was predictable and took a lot of its concepts from other games.

    Anyway, gave Cry of Fear my vote.

    Well, I can't deny that NH2's scares were a bit derivative. But I felt they were really rather masterfully executed and ended up being more than the sum of their parts. I don't know about you, but I found it rather unpredictable... aside from the mannequin sequence (which, for the record, still freaked me out), everything came as a surprise.

    Plus, NH2 just had a lot of little touches that made it memorable as well. The way the automated announcements become more human as the game goes on, the random caption scares ("DON'T LOOK BEHIND YOU", etc) and so on.

    NH2 had a lot of truly notable, enduring segments -- I think back to my playthrough and can easily point them out. Meanwhile, all I really remember from AoM is wandering around in the dark, never being able to figure out where the fuck I'm supposed to go, and constantly having to conserve batteries for my woefully insufficient flashlight.

    while playing nightmare house 2 i found several specific elements and events pulled straight from F.E.A.R. (and expansions) in succession. Creepy Ghost Girl In a Dress That Whispers Things is the biggest offender of the "shit thats been done a thousand times and is no longer acceptable" category.

    and that bit with the mannequins, except for the soldier turning into one, is ripped almost directly off of Condemned: Criminal Origins, another Monolith game.

    fucking strangle me, won't make the mod any scarier or original.

    Just because it's "upcoming" doesn't mean it's not going to be released.
