What You Sick People Come Here For (NSFW) (OMG)

   0


Sometimes I miss playing a sociopath enveloped by the violence and chaos of his own mind. It's as much a mental experience as it is a visceral one. It speaks to the darker side of the human spirit, and it speaks to mine. I'll get behind any story that taps into the true nature of horror, especially when it utilizes a medium as a conduit for the surreal - the extent of which being only limited by the resourcefulness of its crafters. Two games that I hold dear portray this idea well: Manhunt and The Suffering.




Two men sentenced to death for violent murders they (maybe) have committed, given a second chance at freedom. For the ordeal they have to go through in order to obtain it, they might as well have been executed... and then made to fight out of Hell itself. They're made to spill even more blood than they ever possibly could in the outside world. So much that it would be a fool's notion to think redemption for their past crimes isn't out of the question. But that's not what they're in their predicaments for, is it? They're being tested.

As much humanity they're willing to sacrifice just to survive; how much of their environment is a product of their own madness? And how much of their madness a product of their environment? Is it possible to be a killer with a heart of gold? Or does true empathy for your victims lie in the void?

If you're in France, do you do as the French do? Of course in this case, France being Hell and the French being every demon and lunatic out to take the one thing you have left that's worth fighting for. Is it fear and adrenaline that drives you? Or does the prospect of creating and reveling in bloody anarchy get you wet in the pants?

But most importantly: Do you feel deserving of it; do you even care? Or will you fight to free yourself from violence before it consumes you?



It's grisly. It's unrelenting. The atmosphere is just as oppressive, as it is full of dread. But it's not without choice. It's not without a glimmer of hope and goodwill. A chance to end the suffering - on your own terms.

No rest for the damned.

About Nihilone of us since 6:11 AM on 12.19.2009

Hi. I'm Dan, an admin in the forums. Come down and say things to us. You'll float, too.




"Nihil" is the pseudonym I use for writing and gaming on the internet. I came across Destructoid by searching for information on Way of the Samurai 3. Tubatic had the most comprehensive coverage on it I'd seen anywhere.

For that, and for leading me to this extraordinary community, I thank him.
