This one is meant to be viewed as a series.

I spent some time playing Amnesia: The Dark Descent late at night
in an attempt to capture some of that creepy, uneasy feeling that only this game can provide.
So much of the haunting Amnesia experience comes from the eerie sounds and the lonely dread
of being hunted or losing your sanity, so it is rather difficult
to express that tension in screenshots, but I had to try because
I just love the horror of this game.

Johannes Soderqvist, the art director for Mirror's Edge had just come back from a trip to Spain
and was obsessed with the brilliant white plaster on the buildings there.
He loved the way it reflected light and had an intensely clean and fresh look to it and came back with
many photographs that helped shape the look of Mirror's Edge.

The world of Mirror's Edge is under almost totalitarian control and you play the role of Faith,
a runner for the revolution. But this isn't the usual grimey, dark and imposing totalitarian city
that you normally see in other games and movies with similar themes. This is something more subtle.
It is antisceptically clean and beautiful to the point of perfection, but in its quest for perfection, it must control.
Cameras are everywhere. Areas are roped off with barbed wire.
Ubiquitous security personnel are armed and ready to keep everyone in line.
It's like when you were a kid and you visited that one rich lady's house and you got yelled at every two minutes
for fear that you might touch anything, break something, or make a mess.
It's that kind of oppression, only on a grander scale.

In this shot, Faith is penned up in a barbed wire fence inside an alley within this perfect white city.
With the sun shining above, you can almost feel the rooftops calling to you to rise up above the city and find freedom.

Here's a photo montage of screens from the fighting game Vanguard Princess.
The battle is between (my favorite) Hioh Kaede and Mitonoya Saki.
Hioh wins.

I really enjoy seeing all these screenshots. Maybe, someday, I'll remember to actually take a screenshot so I can post it.
Since this signature affects old posts, I'm leaving a message here in case anyone searches for my username. This account died in early 2013. I am no longer a fundamentalist.

Don't add to my problems by pretending my past views are still held in the present. I do not have any patience for that. Feel free to ask me what I think now.

Back when FPS games were so complex that you actually needed to find a key or find and press a button in order to advance to the next level. Even the level design wasnt just a straight path from point A to point B :shock:

Nice! I used to do that all the time. In fact, when I finished Ys Book I & II during Together Retro a couple months ago I took a photo as proof.
