I’ll be honest here like the reasons why a lot of more modern pc horror games aren’t really scary to me at this point is that a majority of them are illogical, which takes away some of the immersion for me. Like nothing is more scary to me than a logical situation with hopeless circumstances, knowing that whatever you do will all be in vain, that you can’t just get up and leave because why the fuck would you be doing this, blah blah.

The issue with these games is that they rely too heavily on jumpscares (which don’t get me wrong are cheap and effective but alone should not make a game) and youtube publicity from screaming lpers instead of story, which, to me, really hurts the game in terms of how scared I walk away from it. Was I startled for a portion of gameplay? Sure. Do I wanna keep the lights on at night? Nah, I’m good. 

Like with enough exposure of these shock-factors the effect wears off very quickly and not only have you made me bored and uninterested, but you lost a lot of the purpose that the genre specializes in imo

Upon second viewing, I have definitely concluded that Guardians of the Galaxy is even better when you imagine it as a tabletop campaign with an increasingly frustrated DM who’s sick of being interrupted.

GM: “Roll 2d10.”
Peter: “Red high. Twelve.”
GM: “You have 12 percent of a plan.”

The entire prison break scene was just Rocket’s player rolling knowledge checks on every turn until something worked.

  • When Drax’s player said, “I go into the phone booth and call Ronan to Knowhere”, the DM stared open-mouthed for a minute, then called break time. The rest of the party was speechless.
  • Pretty much just in general, Drax’s player is one of those people who thinks Chaotic Neutral means “throws self at shit for the lulz” and is really fortunate he didn’t have many other opportunities to derail the campaign.
  • Gamora’s player gets really exasperated by the entirety of the campaign. They rolled a character with a tragic backstory and clear hooks to the villain to expand on, and had no idea that everyone else was going to be so silly. It leads to begging the party to just once execute a normal plan because look at Gamora’s stealth bonus, this min/maxed assassin needs a chance to use her abilities, please.
  • Rocket’s a skill monkey who, if not for Drax’s grand display of idiocy, would have gladly derailed the campaign with absurd plans.
  • Groot was a joke idea someone came up with that people ended up liking too much.
  • Ronan’s confusion when Star Lord began dancing was the DM’s confusion verbatim.
  • The DM now vetoes Chaotic Neutral characters on principle.
