Some horror games seem to have quite a few jump scares in them. This is one of my least favorite things in video games because I don't enjoy my heart rate being suddenly increased Razz


Do you think that jump scares can be over used in a horror game?

I don't play them, but I like watching people jump out of their seats and screaming like little girls Razz

Yeah, I think they're pretty cheap and over-used. They're not even the kind of thing that'll give anyone nightmares: just one brief rush of fright, and then that's it.

I do know of one game (I can't remember the name of it) where it's possible to avoid the jump scares, and it just uses them as a punishment for doing things wrong. I think that's a pretty good way to do it, really!

I do wonder if so many are produced in order to make people at the theaters waste more popcorn Razz

I do think that using them as punishments is pretty cool...I think I have seen the game you are referencing but I can't think of the name of it...

lol! This might be the case but I don't think theaters gain a ton of money when this happens Razz I think refills end up being something like .50 cents

I actually love a jump scare. Even if I know I'm well over-due one when I'm playing a game (or watching a film etc). The idea of trying to work out when it's coming really makes it fun for me but also the actual jump scare itself is fantastic, I love jumping out of my skin lol. I'm a bit of a werido though!

I think they can be overused, yes. You have to time it just right so that it happens at the right moments in the game. If you overuse it, people will become immune to it before they finish the game.
