Hey, yeah, I was wondering if you guys could help suggest me a game…? My step-dad and I really got into these two games called “Siren” and “Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly,” both on Playstation 2. If you could suggest me a game of similar calibre (they’re both horror/survival games, but not the type like “Resident Evil”—you have to play them to understand), then I would greatly appreciate it. =)

P.S. I would greatly appreciate suggestions from people who have *played* these games. If you haven’t, then it’s fine, please post a suggestion nonetheless. =) Thanks!

Silent Hill 2 and 3 are both supposed to be great.

Haha, I’ve been suggested that one as well, but I hear it’s not as good as Fatal Frame II. Kinda like it’s not worth it. =\ But eh, it couldn’t be too bad if it had a good enough sequel, right? =)

Already did that. =\ But I’m looking for Siren-esque or Fatal FRame-ish types of games… they’re Japanese and about strange phenomena. Like zombies from a cult/mythological background or ghosts from a ritual ceremony.

Can you think of any games like that? Games that are, like, weird… weird as in they have stuff to do with Cults. I hear that’s what the new Resident Evil is going to be like =)

Yeah, but do you have a Gamecube?  It’s one of the hotter games coming this year though.  Better controls, smarter AI.

o0o0o0o, is this for the new Resident Evil game they’re coming out with? And YAY for smarter AI, some of those zombies can get to be so dumb after a while =P

Eternal Darkness is the perfect survival horror game that is a must buy.

Add a number 3 for my recommendations above…

3.  Play the game late at night with the lights out (with headphones or surround sound preferably) and wait for the sanity effects

OMG, I’ve done that with other games. I got so freakin’ scared I had to have my step-dad play it for me. LOL I am not joking, that’s how much of a ##### I am =P

By the way, the rest of you can ask questions about video games or ask for some suggestions and whatnot. This thread isn’t exclusive to just me =)
