    Seriously, I wonder how many people will play only as Jason, and I wonder how many will like it just a little too much. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    I am not entirely comfortable with this genre, as I was never really into slasher horror films, either, for the same reason. I am still curious and following the news, however.

    RockPaperShotgun interviewed the devs of DbD. They definitely aren’t sitting on their hands.

      rED & I were just talking today in party chat that we felt that your level of discomfort toward this genre may be the reason for your apprehension. For us, it’s a change of pace. A breath of fresh air which is not your typical “shooter” or gunplay-based game. It’s survival horror where the fear factor makes the experience stressful & frustrating, but also memorable. I know that we spoke about your apprehension on F13 & DBD a few weeks ago, but please don’t feel that you have to begrudgingly purchase the game in order not to feel left out, Suns. You know that’s never our intent with our community.

      I am not a fan of slasher flicks either, but these upcoming games offer something that we haven’t experienced in quite a long time. The last game that evoked fear were the L4D games. These two games will allow you to assume the role of the monster/killer/villain to troll your friends, or you can work cooperatively to survive or “take one for the team.” Think of this game type as a macabre hide-and-seek. The intriguing element is what fear and survival will do to teamwork. Do you abandon your friend who’s in need for the sake of your own skin, or do you rescue him?

      Thanks for the kind words, Kenny. L4D came out of nowhere for me and was and is in my all time top three, wrestling for GOAT. I want to be in. My discomfort only slows me from jumping on pre-orders for *both* of them. I want to join the gang and plan on doing so. But knowing that y’all will be buying both, I would prefer to avoid getting the one that doesn’t get played past the first weekend (at least at the beginning – after they become cheaper, I don’t even care).

      And yes, the “morality” and genuine emotion provided in these co-op, teamwork-based survival games is unparalleled. You know my thoughts on these compared to single player campaigns. 😉

      Note: I edited the first paragraph for clarity.
