Dead Space 3 Co-op & Scariness

One of the reasons for adding co-op to the Dead Space series in Dead Space 3 is how "scary" the first two games are, EA tells MCV, though they are carefully parsing their language about this in not saying the new game will be any less scary than its forebears. "We were hearing feedback that they love the thriller game, but it was pretty scary, and the obvious next step was that they wanted to play with someone. So we introduced co-op into the game," EA Gamesí marketing boss Laura Miele tells them. "The horror of Dead Space is still all there. Itís still true to its roots and no less scary, but people felt far more comfortable playing it with someone else than they did doing it on their own. "

Yes, except imagine how scary Dead Space would be if you were on the same space station without any weapons.

Yeah sorry that isn't how fear works. It's still a video game. You know what Dead Space would be like without weapons? A really boring fucking game that probably wouldn't have sold 1/4 as many copies. System Shock 2 had plenty of weapons and was far "scarier" than Dead Space. Fear in video games is a matter of atmosphere, not vulnerability.
