Scary Game Findings: A Study Of Horror Games And Their Players

Gamasutra recently posted an article in which usability studio, Vertical Slice, monitored player's reaction to four scary games to discover the different reactions casual gamers had compared to hardcore gamers.

The selected games were Alan Wake, Resident Evil 5, Dead Space 2 and Condemned. Other games, such as Left 4 Dead 2, Gears of War 2, Condemned 2, FEAR 1 & 2, Dead Space 1, Silent Hill: Homecoming, Alone in the Dark and Mass Effect 2 were considered, but ultimately disregarded.

It's an interesting study, and well worth reading. It's fascinating to see how players found Alan Wake compared to other horror games.
