However! I LOVE the pants off that game. But then again in my world, Shinji can do no wrong. But I thought it was pretty awesome. I haven't jumped like that watching a game in a long time. I was starting to think that I was desensitized to horror games. The last horror game I watched was I think Dead Space 3 and maybe a couple of Slender games, but either way, I didn't get all screamy the way I did with The Evil Within. I screamed a lot watching this. I covered my eyes, I jumped... It was wonderful. Only thing I'm sad about is, I didn't find a line or something I could hold onto in order to write a fanfiction. I was really hoping to have fanfiction flying, but alas, I don't think that will happen.
The ending kinda lost me a bit. I thought I was following the storyline well, but the ending I don't quite understand. I'm going to try to watch it again to see if I can't figure it out, because it's kinda vague and weird. But the whole story has been weird though! I think it was kinda like Inception, sorta like a dream within a dream type situation (I kinda wanna call it The Evil Withinception), but I want to make sure.
Overall, I got what I wanted, to be scared out of my mind. I am a bit afraid of the dark now too, which that hasn't happened in a long time. Some of the reviews I've seen give it about an 8 and a half or 9, so it's doing pretty good. I saw some complaints online that it was too much like Resident Evil 4, but I for the life of me can't figure out how that's a bad thing. Personally I thought it was a little better than RE4, but you know people are never satisfied. That's those poor weasels, I am very satisfied. For me it was well worth the wait and obsessing.
