Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Hello, I'd like to play a little [chat]

You think that it is over, just because I am dead.

It's not over.

The games have just begun.

    Wait... Does this black guy just carry a battle-axe around with him wherever he goes? Or was it given to him magically at the same time that his persona was?

    Actually, the twists at the end of the movies are done quite well, Hostel has nothing to do with Saw and was written by Eli Roth before the first was released, and only in Saw 3 were some of the traps uvwinable.

    But hey, I don't think I could change your mind.

    I admit to bias since Jigsaw is just so adept at avoiding police whether it be in the first one where he was caught and escaped in a horribly stupid fashion or the beginning of the second with the lame ass traps there.

    And in the third one with the dumbass husband who never thought to question what the hell the device around his wife's neck was before killing the only guy who knew.

    Whoops.

    The whole point of the 3rd movie was that the husband was a rage-filled d-bag and only thought about himself.

    Not to mention that the other things you mentioned are straight up opinion.

    Did he come to school that day with his dancing abilities, or were they just granted to him? Why would he take them along unless he was expecting catastrophe?

    Something here just doesn't add up...

    I just read an article linked from Kotaku about 'mature' games (and how mature does not mean sex & violence).

    And then Saw reminds me of how much horror films bug me.

    The victims in most horror do something (no matter how trivial) to 'deserve' death. Like the Scream thing of 'don't have sex'.

    I just want horror without gore, where bad stuff happens to good people. Because it does, all the time, and that's actually scary.

    I figure I could take a bear.

    "lol he was there the whole time but you would have had no way of knowing that. AREN'T WE CLEVER !?"

    No.

    "But look at how gorey this is! Gore makes things scary right!? Plus this trap is brilliant. You can live if you...EAT YOUR OWN FACE. WOW I BET YOU NEVER EXPECTED US TO GO THAT FAR DID YOU?"

    My problem with scary movies is that in most cases they just aren't scary and end up being too predictable. I usually have to go browse a lot of paranormal stories to get myself feeling all scared.

    4chan has a great section for that sort of stuff, believe it or not.

    It's gotten so that movies push the envelope just for the sake of pushing the envelope.

    Ya, that's a lot of blood and guts and sadism you've got there, you're totally breaking boundaries for decent reasons.

    Much fun dancing tonight; also some of my friends ended up dancing with some weird old fat guy who had no footwork, and would do nothing but go from spin to spin with no break inbetween. Fun to watch, but I'm told the actual dancing was no fun.

    No, see, I like adrenaline as much as anyone else. Roller coasters are fun. Being fed ideas of horror, not so much.

    I will admit that scary video games scare the piss out of me much more so than movies. For me it's

    video games>literature>movies

    Literature makes me paranoid. Movies can be a little tense and are damn fun/entertaining but with video games i'm sleeping with the lights on clutching a baseball bat hoping to make it til morning.

    Fatal Frame II scared me so much that I gave that sum-a-bitch away. Recently I got drunk and installed silent hill 3. It was all good until I started to sober up then I realized the error of my ways. Even when there's a pause screen I expect something to ruin my day. It's awful.

    I thought the first Saw was pretty much shit. That's why I find it incredibly odd that I've enjoyed them since then. I guess maybe I just got past the idea that they were going to have some neat twist or actual horror in them, and realized they were just pretty much torture porn popcorn movies.

    They're not, especially the first one.

    Everyone seems to think that the 1st Saw was really gory, when it actually had very little.

    Still there's fuckall when it comes to clues. The mystery aspect comes from things that you could not possible know and that the characters could not deduce.

    tension + gore + a surprise = saw

    You could just as easily come up with a good Saw movie as these guys.

    My final moment with the game was when I ended up shitting a house showing one of my friends how to play. I thought I was in a safe room so I was explaining the controls and everything. . .

    See, that's the problem with most of the people who go see the movie, or hate it.

    They won't pay attention to the plot, or how it interweaves between the other movies.

    And many of the people who see the movies, don't know what the hell is going on, so they tune out the story and just go for the visuals.

    Well of course it's opinion, I'm not trying to argue facts.

    But really the husband was such a rage-filled d-bag yet he continually tried to save the people he felt wronged him, and even got one out before he was killed in a lame fashion.

    “Wrong. This is Texas. And my opinion is the only one that counts."
