Shield camera haha… This makes me realize how much Half-Life paved the way for mooost fp(s) up to today still, crazy.

I have the perfect game for you guys to play on next week’s J&MM.
If you don’t play this — just one day before our “historic” presidental election — consider it a wasted opportunity.
It’s bipartisan, equal opportunity fun for all. 🙂

Alien: Isolation is a great game where hiding at times is essential.
October 31, 2016 at 5:34 pm
The best horror game I´ve seen on J&MM so far! Scary!
Have a good halloween!

Too bad you guys didn’t make it to what is possible the greatest “horror” villain in a video game ever.

If you two are looking for any good movies set in asylums, there’s the 1972 Amicus horror film Asylum starring Peter Cushing and Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island with Leonardo DiCaprio.

Mike have you seen Girl Interupted? It was a crazy movie and it was pretty good too. There was also an American Horror Story season about one too. I also seen a few other movies about an asylum but just can’t think of them off the top of my head. But I know what you mean they are like erie but fun to watch. Same as the games like Batman and Bioshock. There is a lot if you think about it. I remember a documentry about 10 haunted places and there was one about an asylum 100 years ago. Fun to watch.

Should check out The Evil Within. Really scary and has some nice asylum parts.
October 31, 2016 at 8:58 pm
We hide a lot in metroid on GBA, right? Both zero mission and fusion.
October 31, 2016 at 10:08 pm
The Evil Within for PC! Try it out!
October 31, 2016 at 10:14 pm
Awakenings is a very good “asylum” or “metal hospital” movie.
October 31, 2016 at 10:31 pm
Really glad to see you guys picked this for halloween. Outlast is one of the best in the genre. You guys should take a look at Until Dawn and Evil Within. I think you will really enjoy Until Dawn.

Haven’t you guys ever played Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty? You can hide yourself, as well as the bodies of enemies inside of lockers.

I think the concept was even older than that. But some mgs would be nice

I love this game. Check out Doom Asylum from late 80s. Shot in an actual abandoned asylum. Very few people seem to know about it. It’s great, and probably one of the dumbest movies I’ve ever seen. One of my favorite obscure movies.

You guys should check out “Insanitarium” from 2008! I really like that one. Bloodthirsty, literally, inmates and mad doctors performing experiments. It’s got some good gory moments.

It’s not halloween season anymore, but I love all those horror games. Keep them coming!

The Fatal Frame series, at least 1 and 2 are my favorite survival horror games. If you want a “hiding” game, check out Clock Tower. Part 3 was my favorite in that series.
November 1, 2016 at 7:51 pm
lol u beat me too it vinny scariest games ever (fatal frame) seriously… well until grasshopper interactive took over for tecmo. 4 was fine but 5… not scary
November 1, 2016 at 9:16 am
Shutter Island is a great Asylum movie.
November 1, 2016 at 6:38 pm
God damn, James is awful at games.
November 1, 2016 at 7:50 pm
games like fatal frame paved the way for the creepy camera mechanic.
November 2, 2016 at 1:45 am
I was half expecting a comment on the naked brothers, and don’t get me started on the doctor. The Groom in The Whistleblower probably frightened me the most, but this entire game is full of colourful characters who are out to kill you.

Alien Isolation is probably the best modern game of this type. Not a fan of Outlast to be honest, mostly because it’s genuine chills are overshadowed by the endless cheap jump scares (which is the problem with modern horror in general). “Boo! The Videogame” would have been a more fitting title.
November 2, 2016 at 5:01 am
For asylum movies there’s 1946’s Bedlam with Karloff but you guys have probably seen that one already.
November 2, 2016 at 8:09 am
Nice that you finally got to Outlast! Its one hell of a creepy game, even if most events are scripted and the story doesn’t make much sense (to me).
Play it until the doctor gets you, that scene will probably freak you guys out 😉

I will also cast my vote in for ALIEN Isolation. But as a caveat, play the PS4 version, as it has an option for you to use the controller mic so that the monster can hear your actual voice while you play; so if you breathe too hard or yell “OH SHIT!” when you see it around the corner, it will hear you and come for you. It’s also a VERY faithful recreation of the original film’s world, right down to the technology, set design, costumes, etc, with a rewarding experience for players who like to explore. Definitely worth a play. 🙂

Though pretty much everyone on the Internet has already covered it, 5 Nights at Freddy’s set the bar for hiding gameplay. It’s doubly terrifying since you can’t even run, only hide. The spinoff, Joy of Creation lets you run. Also, the Clock Tower games are pretty underappreciated.
November 18, 2016 at 4:37 am
For movies involving Asylums, the most obvious example is Silence of the Lambs, though the books are better. That goes without saying.

I just played this scary game on PC called Araya that takes place in a hospital. It’s so creepy and scary to play in the dark. Mike you should try it.

As for a great insane asylum movie, the 1999 reboot of House on Haunted Hill is underrated IMO! It really helped pioneer the unnatural jerky movements and abstract nightmare imagery that pervaded horror flicks for a good long while in the 00’s-10’s. Pretty funny too.
