F.E.A.R. Is a scary ass game!

So I finally got around to playing F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault Recon). Let me just encapsulate it in one simple phrase: Piss your pants never be the same again stay up all night listening to sounds disturbing scary. Yes, it is a VERY scary game.

Here is a comic I found that sort of plays with the fact that F.E.A.R. will haunt your nightmares forever:

F.E.A.R. Penny Arcade comic

he he.

The game has AMAZING graphics..bullet holes smolder and send smoke from each crater, plaster flies everywhere and fills a room with dust, enemies are VERY smart and take cover and respond to what’s happening (“Oh shit, We have two men down, flank him flank him!!” “Fuck, He shot me..I’m losing blood”) and the scares are SO SCARY..they come out of nowhere and really leave you shaking. This really needs to be made into a movie.

Here is this scary little girl that keeps appearing everywhere leaving bloody footprints:

The graphics are so amazing:


On a side note I kept getting the dreaded BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH because of an error with my nv4_disp.dll file. This happens a lot with people running Windows Xp with an intel chipset and a nvidia graphics card. I have the Gforce 6800 Ultra card (cost me $600).The solution for me was to downgrade drivers to 61.88 (2 year old drivers) and set the AGP Aperture to 128 mb in my system bios. No more crashes and smooth performance. I stayed up until 6am Saturday attempting to fix the issue. I was only successful around 3pm Sunday.

      not really. Silent hill never involved first person shooting with machine guns etc. That’s survival horror..id say this is a first person shooter with a good horror theme..something doom3 attempted to do.
