An opposite example: in Dead Space 2 (or 3, I'm not sure) there were these ventilation shaft crawling sections from time to time, where I expected some jumpscare or enemy appearance, but in the end, that never happened.

Chris - I know you hate seeing posts about people reminding you that you're needing to update your database, but it is getting to be quite outdated now. New horror games come and go, but they aren't in your listings at all. Sorry if this sounds like nagging to you, however you should try to add some games.

I'm keeping all blog posts, all comments, and all game pages! That's what makes it hard, but yeah--10 years of work here, I'm not going to throw it away.

Chris, if you do rework the site or make a new one, I hope you try to keep as many of the old blog post archived as you can. There's likely some good ones I haven't read yet and some I'd like to go over again.

Long time lurker, first time poster. Although I'm not a fan of Reddit, I'd probably use it in place of a forum for like minded horror fans.

couldn't we maybe do something like an official subreddit?

I'm not sure. I have to admit that I consider deleting the "update your database" posts that come in the form of article comments because they aren't on topic and I have a rather detailed contact forum for that purpose. But on the other hand, there are so few places for people to chat that I just end up leaving them be.

I am mostly through a complete rework of the site, but it won't add anything specifically for the community. I don't really know how best to manage that. I dislike forums more and more, but I'm not really a fan of social media pages either. Suggestions are definitely welcome!
No Forums but...

...any other way to keep the community alive and interacting, Chris?

Dude, please update your database. No RE6, The Last of Us, Saw games (both) or Alien: Isolation. The hell?

I haven't played any of the Fatal Frame games or Ju-On, but both might be reasons for me to dust off my Wii. And with Halloween approach, it seems like the perfect opportunity to get/play those soon. They booth seem interesting.

Though, I'm glad you mentioned Dragon Quest/Warrior as an example. I would have said that if you haven't.

Though bringing up an RPG, that reminds me that the concept of using chance to make the player more cautious and dilligient is something i see a lot in roguelikes with things like traps (to encourage you not to dilly dally and take the shortest route as to have less chance to run into a trap) or how a magical staff or scroll might not always have a consistent effect or may even malfunction on you. So, that makes me curious as to whether or not a game like Phantasmal, a "survival horror roguelike" could actually work or not. I'm hopeful at least.
