So I mentioned in 1 or 2 posts that I was going to play Until Dawn this October. Well I finally finished it and I was surprised and even ashamed of myself for being bias because I am such a Dark Souls fangirl I can’t really play any other games.
Until Dawn is actually a good game even though it’s cinematic, which is something I tried to stay away from. I can barely stay focused watching a movie so the quick time mechanic in the game, made me stay alert. I killed some characters not because I made the wrong choices, but I was too slow. Yes, I accidentally killed Emily (your wish came true Rei). 😀
Personally, over the years, horror-games don’t really scare me. The last one I played before Until Dawn was Evil Within. I felt Evil Within was over the top, too messy, too much craziness and too confusing. But Until Dawn is clean and simple. This is a survivor-horror game. The characters actually developed. Things got serious. At first, I hated Mike the most because he is so cocky, but I ended liking him. He got his shit together eventually.
I definitely want to play this game again. I actually played this game alone, so some parts were kind of intense, and really want to know what could have happened if I made different choices. The game has a good replay value.
So next time, before I judge, I will be sure to slap my face and say: do not judge a book by it’s cover!
