So what happened..

One of the first demos I ever played once I got my Xbox and then the HD some months later...was FEAR2. I was so into it and actually scared at parts.

Playing the full game now..just wtf? It's about the ugliest game I've seen in ages. All the 'FLASH' scares are nothing more than expected..a little girl with dark hair is no longer scary at all, nor are flickering lights or obvious scares.

Did I mature that much in 2-3 years, or have I just played way better horror games (namely Alan Wake) and better FPS really ruin this game for me?

I haven't been scared by a game since RE2, but Alan Wake did give me the creeps sometimes..this just seems laughable as Lake Placid.

Guess it could be attributed to not being high as I had been for Alan Wake and most games I've rented lately...but it's just boring and overall badly conducted. I don't feel like im exploring when I'm trying to figure out which cubical has the door behind it that I need..meh. REALLY wanted to enjoy this, but never played the first so maybe thats why?

Well, honestly, this is the only scary game I've really played and quite frankly, I didn't really like the first F.E.A.R, it was more atmospheric than scary but very bad audio and the controls are like Far Cry Instincts, I find it a pretty boring experience although I do like F.E.A.R 2 I'm thinking about trying Alan Wake.
Games that make me rage: Battlefield 3, Dead Island, LA Noire, Call of Duty, Need For Speed.

To all of you but Battlefield 3: F*** off!

Taking into account the fact that I am scared easily but was still able to play both, F.E.A.R and F.E.A.R 2 in complete darkness really says something about the game and it's lack of atmosphere.

In all honesty, the only parts that freaked me out in F.E.A.R 2 were the levels that took place in the hospital, and Alma's elementary school.

Since the original F.E.A.R much scarier games have come out:

- Alan Wake (Not outright scary, more of a high-tension game.)
- Dead Space
- Dead Space 2 (Released well after F.E.A.R 2, but added it to the list anyways.)
- Condemned
- Condemned 2 (Don't really recall if this was released before or after F.E.A.R 2.)

In any case, what I'm trying to say is you may very well have been desensitized to F.E.A.R 2's offerings.
Compared to the majority of the titles on the list I compiled, F.E.A.R 2's offerings are pretty tame.
