Ah, Christmas is right around the corner! So let's talk about horror! ....What?

But yeah, these are my choices for what I'd claim, are the icons of true horror, be it psychological, survivor or whatever, in video games. These are the characters, old and new, that bring the true essence of terror from deep within us. So without further ado...

5 - Zombies, various.
Just... Zombies. What else is there to say, they're EVERYWHERE, even in your video games, in different shapes, sizes and infection types: curses, deadly mutated fungi, viruses, dark magic, it can come from anything, but darn straight we LOVE our little bit of undead horror. The zombie run for 2014 and even 2013 made some huge impacts on pop culture, sure, but remember that we've had these games with the walking dead for a while, now, the most notable example that comes to mind being Resident Evil. Once you see that zombie's head turn to look at its next meal (a delicious Jill Sandwich), you never forget it. They're a fad, or maybe a new icon in horror? Well to me, it's the latter, and it'll be hard for something like that to grow old.

4 - Scissormen, Clock Tower series
A more obscure reference, but not so much so that it can't be even iconic to gaming itself, the line of the Scissormen is a known staple of the escape-themed Clock Tower series. What they all have in common is the varied degree of psychopathy, but most of them are more or less human. The first notable Scissorman of the series, coming from the very first CT game that was not released outside of Japan, was Bobby Barrows, demonic in appearance and psychotic in demeanor. Both him and his brother were known murderers around their home's original neighborhood, and despite his youthful appearance, he's stubborn like an adult. These enemies, like the type of the game implies, cannot be fought directly, since these games are focused on escape and hiding, rather than combat. They are all rather sneaky and devilish, so it creates a huge level of atmosphere and suspense when you examine a location, knowing that at some point, the first thing you'll see before your bloody demise are the sharp edges of a humongous pair of scissors. And I thought Cut Man from Mega Man had a thing for slicing.

3 - Silent Hill, Silent Hill series
It takes a town to raise a child. It also takes a town to scare you gutless into learning your freaking lesson. Ever since the malevolent religious group known as "The Order" immolated poor Alessa Gillespie, the town of Silent Hill at the margins of Toluca Lake has never been the same. Isolated in deep fog, the whole city seems to change from game to game, and not from faulty continuity. There are large amounts of evidence to suggest that the town itself is now semi-sentient, targeting and attracting those with past sins and regrets into its desolated streets, where it throws every fear, every resentment and every trauma at the unfortunate person's face, sinking them into their own version of the town's Otherworld, where nightmares are not only brought to life, but empowered. A journey through the horrors of Silent Hill is a journey into one's self to face their deepest fears, but remember, the town will only let you choose what to do with the teaching once it's done showing it. If you try and choose an easy way out, then don't worry. You'll just go Full Circle and have to restart your lesson. Over. And over. Again.

2 - The Dark Presence, Alan Wake series
To say you're afraid of the dark is normal, especially when it gives you reason for it. The Lovecraftian horror that is the Dark Presence is something to be beckoned with. Taking a hint from Death in the Final Destination movies, the DP has no concrete shape. It is sentient, but all it knows is evil, and it can exist within anyone or anything. It sleeps, but the slightest ounce of creativity can reawaken it, as it takes any sort of story written in paper or toned in song, and makes it real with its own added twists. It can create Taken soldiers by infecting people, filling their body and souls with darkness, and it takes advantage of loved ones to manifest in a definitive avatar form until said avatar is put to rest. But the creepiest part is that, even when it's not actively hunting you down, you can still see it everywhere there is shadow. Everywhere where it's night... hunting you down until you're a part of it... or worse...

1 - Freddy Fazbear and gang, Five Nights at Freddy's series
I KNOW. I know. EVERYBODY is talking about this game, everybody is doing their share of fanart of this game, and I DO agree when people say this game is not perfect and overrated. I complain that it's too vague, too jumpscare-focused and... well, going by my old concepts of creepypasta, which I classify media that corrupts something related to childhood or innocence... this game kind of does that. I mean, okay, while it IS heavily based-off Chuck E. Cheese, it tells its own bizarre and creepy story, original. But going back to the point of corrupting childhood, :icongaijingoombah: said it best, and I fully agree with him: this is a game I will NEVER play, not because I think it's overrated or because it's a jumpscare fest, but because it takes everything most of us feared in childhood and throws it literally at our faces. The creepy men in costumes, the scary robots in fuzzy fake fur, the creepy dead-eyed stare of the animatronics.... Everything is here. And this is why the game is so popular: because it hurts our inner child. The part that must be reached if horror wants to move forward.

Ryan Weever's Journal - Discrimination and Prejudice
Timeline: Two days before the events of Heir
Ryan's location: Ryan's Office, Royal District - Britannia


Only Entry


Along with generalization, often comes ignorance. And with ignorance, people become unable to discern between discrimination and prejudice. And as such, accuse anyone with, say, "troublesome relationships" with certain social cliques as being racist, or prejudicial.

I would like to state immediately that "prejudice" is the term given to the feeling of hostility, fear, or both, towards people, ethnicity, customs and overall characteristics that are unknown to the offending group. Prejudice is born from the lack of knowledge, from ignorance. You offend those who you know nothing about, or rather, nothing outside of base stereotype. This sort of plague is one of the many I seek to eradicate with Britannia. A human being is NOT told apart by the color of their skin, not for their beliefs, or for any other personal factor! A human being's MAIN characteristics are morality and personality. I do not hate a person for what they believe in, I CAN hate them for what they do or truly are.

All the while, "discrimination" is the term applied to when knowledge CAN be present. I KNOW what the person or group is or does, and therefore I choose to react negatively based on it. I do think mankind is on its way to perfection, but I cannot forgive a murderer who kills innocent families. I cannot easily redeem a criminal for stealing, if they do it on their own accord.

Oh, but I know... I know someone might raise their fingers at this. Point them at me and accuse me of such crimes...

Murderer.

Genocidal.

Discriminative.

Deceiver.

They accuse me of all these crimes as if reading me... Reading my past. They call me names I am used to hearing... From everywhere...

As if I am no better than a psychopath who kills for believing that it is the right thing to do.

...Why do they never seem to think I agree?

I AM NOT better than one. I may not be one myself, but if that title is given to me, why would I not take it? I attack a select group of individuals for what I claim are reasons to do so. I strike at them in rage for believing they are a plague for society, and presenting my own evidence to support said theory. I am DISCRIMINATIVE towards them. I know what they are, therefore I have all the right to take action. Only a fighter unprepared marches into battle with sword in hand, hoping to defeat a plague they know nothing about only with their strength alone!

I am NOT prejudicial towards the Chaos Bearers! I am discriminative, YES, but NOT prejudicial! I refuse to base my attacks on hopeless assumptions! But if they do so insist, then I suppose I have to speak a bit louder to them... After all, I have years worth of evidence to support my claim.

I hate not the Bearers for matters of race. I DO hate them, because they bring destruction in their wake and refuse to pay for it.

And life can only be so unjust...

Icon by :iconpoolvosje:

What can I say?? I do it for the fans. To show them that you CAN accept the new stuff, even if it backs away a little from the main plot. You don't have to hate it! Do it like me and endure it! Search something you like about the game. Or just don't say anything. Writing fan-fiction also works :)

And I, being Brazilian, speak 100% portuguese. Whoever told whoever's reading this that we speak Spanish, that's a common mistake, and you have all the right to assume that.

Current Residence: Brazil, and that's all I'm gonna say about it.
Favourite genre of music: Anything BUT Brazilian funk..
Favourite photographer: I don't know any photographers.
Favourite style of art: Literature and manga.
Favourite cartoon character: XANA from Code Lyoko. Jeremie is cool, too...
Personal Quote: "Every game is an experience. Live yours today!"

Thank you for giving a watch!
You traveled down the web, and back a notch.
Your heart is true. You're searching it on deviantart.

And if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew,
you would see the biggest gift would be from me
and the card attached would say:
"Thank you for giving a watch!"
