    I just saw the demo version shown at Comic-Con.

    It actually looks like a pretty good game.

    So discuss your opinions on this thread.

    wait. There's a Saw game? The movies aren't enough to drag it out further? And what game are you playing in it? Monopoly?

    How do you make a game out of Saw?

    I'm guessing it's gonna be a puzzle game where you have to get yourself out of jigsaw's traps in a certain amount of time or you'll die.

    Still.....a Saw game?

    Actually from the demo, it looked like Silent Hill-esque.

    You have to find things in order to get out.

    I believe there is not time limit, but their are booby traps.

    All of this from watching the demo mind you.

    Saw? The game? If it's not as bad as the movies I might interested.

    Not meaning to insult anyone I just miss horror movies that are psychological instead of just cutting people up. It's make me yawn.

    I have to agree with you on the horror movies.

    Most are just, "How much gore can we put in this film, and jump scenes?"

    But the Hannibal Lecter films IMO, really made me look at him as a phsycological antagonist.

    Didn't take me too long. I'm also at work right now, so had to do that too.

    Walking around in a place with Saw-style traps?

    Sounds like 'Quicktime event corridors in darkness: The game' to me.

    I love the movies, and if you have watched them in order you'll see that regardless of the underlying milking reason, the movie does have an ongoing story.

    Have you watched the Saw movies? I'm not saying that they are this world's gift to physcological thrillers, but despite having 6 parts now, more than say the slasher horror films of old, these movies have some cool twists, that not only tie to eachother, but also sometimes mimic mini M. Knight Shamalingling movies in themselves.

    I wouldn't ever agree with Jigsaw's technique, but the man has a reason for being pissed off. He's not some child-molester who's pissed because he was caught and killed, and when someone takes over the job for him, he berates her for making the tasks impossible, because his purpose has never been to kill, rather to make people earn their lives. I know...fucked up, but the more you watch the followup movies, the more you discover about the characters. One thing I learned from watching them is that yes, it is probably written this way to propogate sequels, but there is a story here that is less simple than some of the horror movies you are referring to. It's really not bad if you watch them in order.

    But, if you pay attention in the movies, gore comes first, followed by a storyline that could have ended LONG ago. I stopped watching after the third. The story just didn't seem to go anywhere that might make it intriguing enough for me to sit through.

    I did, which is why I said that the movie continues for obvious milking reasons. LOST "could have" finished 4 seasons ago if they just told the story on the island, but half the show is flashbacks. Of course the story is surrounded by gore. It's flippin' Halloween. But the story, regardless of how weaved it is into gore, still revolves around a character that has more going on than just , "Kill kill kill!"

    That is what I liked about the original 2 Halloweens. Yeah, Michael was all, "Kill, kill, kill.", but they explained why, and connected everything together. That is what I found so flawed about the remakes.

    The problem I have with JigSaw is that he seemingly picked his victims intelligently at first, and now they kinda seem random. Again, just my opinion.

    Yeah, because I think his replacement is the one messing up. I forgot if he picks them or not now, but I know he's dead now, and has been for a while, and his replacement did a shitty job because she didn't really understand his intent.

    Anyway, I do hope this game is decent. It is Konami, so I'll be cautiously optimistic.
