Together Retro 2016: Horror game poll

by Ack Wed Oct 14, 2015 11:32 am

There has been back and forth discussion about what horror game we should play for Together Retro during the month of October, 2016. This poll is to enable people to vote on the topic.

These are the options:

Alone in the Dark: This is a vote for the original Alone in the Dark game, released in 1992.
Fatal Frame 1 or 2: This is a vote for the Fatal Frame series. If this option succeeds, discussion will shift to which Fatal Frame to play.
Other: This is a vote to go back to the drawing board and allow input and suggestions on a different offering for the traditional horror game.

This poll will be open for 7 days, from October 14, 2015, to October 21, 2015.

This Poll is now closed. Fatal Frame and Alone in the Dark have tied. This topic will go back to discussion between the two.

I voted for Alone in the Dark, mostly for its historical importance, ease of access and short play time. Also, there are tons of topics people can talk anout, like the various ports, the impact of the game on the genre and other titles like resident evil aaaaaannnnddddd on how the Alone in the Dark series has changed countless times to attempt to fit with modern games.

Technically speaking, no, they're not the same game. But we have never stopped people from playing related games in a series.

Fatal Frame was my suggestion! I'm famous!

EDIT: Turns out AlienJesus thought of it first. So I'm no longer famous. What a ride it was, though!
