this one is... hard to watch - i'm 30 minutes in, but i might give up on it, i can scroll down, but the sound effects and some of the video narration is, too visceral for me to process

 

i'm saying one thing - i might not be able to watch the whole video, i'm 200% out of my medium, i don't think i've ever been this uncomfortable, and i thought that the murder mistery episode was a cake walk to watch, compared to this anyway

 

this is the complete opposite

 

i... like dumb games about, car races, and shooting nazis, but... i gotta give you guys some context, i tried to get into horror movies once, and... well my first horror movie was The Thing

 

now i don't mean, some remake or... some bullshit, i mean, the Carpenter one

 

i've decided that i'm never going to watch a horror movie ever again

 

OH GOD I WISH THIS WAS PARTY HARD, I WISH THAT SO MUCH

 

you guys can call me a pansy, but i think this episode might actually be too hardcore for me, i honestly enjoyed realms of the haunting way more as an episode, this one is just disturbing

 

as far as horror games go, i got pretty far into dead space, but to me the enemies felt more like generic monsters so, not too scary, and i also beat resident evil with a walkthrough with cheats, it was tense, but once i got the shotgun, it wasn't so bad - the scariest part about it, were the horrible puzzles, and the boring ass backtracking if anything

 

anyway i might need to stop watching this episode before the game traumatizes me further, i guess i'm more girly than i thought when it comes down to these things, i get eeked out pretty easily, but if anything, the deeper irony is that, a lot of girls who i know, don't seem to be bothered by such things at all

 

still life was easy mode compared to this, i don't know, it's an hour long, and i immagine that it gets worse, i mean, god what's next, is he going to wear the rat as his shoes? is he going to wear the rat as a hat? i'm not sure if i want to find out

 

maybe deep down this is just a type of violence, which just naturally disturbs me for some reason

anyway this episode made me rethink a few of my life choices, and ho boy am i fucking glad i didn't play this game

 

i think hairs just grew on my eyeballs, and my life totally feels more haunted, or at least, it has more hauntings in it than usual, you know, the usual amount, i mean that's normal right? i just hope i won't see myself talking into the mirror, as i rip my... out of... eugh

 

i need to hug a cat

Haven't watched this yet. Why is John Carmack on the thumbnail. 

he's trying to out program all the ghosts out his system

 

either that, or he's working on doom 5

 

are the ghosts haunted, or is the computer haunted? i was going to make a joke, but i keep getting it wrong, maybe my sense of humour is haunted

This was fucking awesome. Though what was up with that half a second Eternam writing on the intro?

Holy crap man, YEARS ago I watched a guy named Spoony play through this entire game, and watching your Game Dungeon on it just brings back a lot of memories of it. I might go ahead and watch his entire playthrough again after this. It's funny how Trevor is treated differently - you see him as annoying, but in Spoony's playthrough he was pretty much everyone's favorite character. In fact, 

Spoiler

prior to Trevor's death, Spoony - and by extension the audience - was rooting for the bad guys to win. Then it suddenly became personal when he died, hahaha.

Excellent episode overall. I look forward to the follow up episode sometime after the Christmas episode!

While I do appreciate that this may seem "extreme" to some people, I was just left wondering why anyone would be freaked out to that extent... I'm also left wondering why he ever went for the bondage chick...

I know, right?!

After giving it some thought, I came to a conclusion that people like you and me might just be kinda jaded, and *normal* people just have a lower "intensity bar".

I guess so... Somewhat sad though, both for us, and for them.

I fucking knew that it was going to be one of the Phantasmagorias! On one of few Halloweens where I can't go out this made day! 

     If I had known how deeply brilliant this plot actually is I would have bought this when it came out. For those who this isn't obvious: Curtis clearly suffers from a borderline-personality and ptsd. This explains the dissociation (feeling that he's alien, in an alien world, blacking out, and having a split personality), delusions, self depreciation along with severe self loathing, risk taking behavior and his chemical dependency(alcohol). Most of those "chemicals" that Ross mentioned are anti-depressants and pain killers except Fluconazole. Interestingly Flucanazole is normally prescribed for vaginal yeast infections and when combined with amitriptyline it can cause suicidal thoughts and actions. I suspect that this may have been the real reason his mother committed suicide. I also suspect that the entire plot may have actually been some sort of immersive therapy or Curtis simply working out his shit. Anyways, thanks Ross for the great vid and I am definitely going to play this now.

In case anyone is curious about the ratings, here's what the levels are supposed to mean. It's a toss up whether they even followed their own guidelines or not, depending on what they mean by "explicit". That's always been a confusing term to me. Does it mean showing things that could only be acted out with real humans if real penetration was going on? That's what "explicit" means to me. Anything they could fake with strategic camera angles would by definition have to be implied. Meanwhile, their highest rating for violence requires "torture", which... I'm pretty sure some of the scenes in this game qualify.

 

Though it's good to know that by these standards, Grand Theft Auto V would have been given the highest possible rating for violence, no question. I always felt that torture scene should have been an instant AO. The ESRB is the industry's bitch.

I dunno, once we get into "literally everything that happened was all in a character's head" territory, it becomes a question of whether that's any less real than it already is by virtue of being a work of fiction. I have the same problem with stuff like the ending to St. Elsewhere.

I see where you're coming from but I don't actually have that problem as long as it has the right context. So for plots, like Phantasmagoria 2, Slaugterhouse 5, Perfect Blue, which are about mental illness turning out to be all inside the protagonist's head is perfectly fine by me. Whereas, with stories like St. Elsewhere, Dallas., FFX ect., where that kind of plot element just appears out of nowhere without any real context or reason I find it to be kind of a cop out and really a sign of bad writing.
