      First post, best post.
      F1 + expansion packs are everything there is.

        No, not even the expansion packs, those suck too.
        Just 1.

          Exp.packs are more of the F1, so they're instantly good.

          Extraction Point's premise is so stupid that it kinda kills the enjoyment for me. Laser gun's cool though.

    I've been replaying the original. The AI and the amount of radio lines still impresses me. But boy do I not remember the game being this easy.

    Some people claim F3AR is actually pretty good in co-op. Anyone here tried it?
    I played F3AR singleplayer and fucking hated it.

    Enjoyed 2 at the time, its multiplayer was alright too.
    Was the first proper PS3 game I had thought so might just be biased.

    The dust that kicks up when you shoot anything in the first FEAR is amazing. Why didn't more games do this since? It's a really cool feature that makes gunfights feel way more dynamic since you can't just spray everyone down without obscuring the entire area. I want that effect in a VR shooter.

      First consoles and casualization happened.
      Now the nu-era devs are already struggling to get even 2007-tier graphics to run over 30fps on modern systems.

        It's not some super graphically intensive feature (or rather, it isn't these days), it's a gameplay feature nobody else seemed to care about.

          True. In general, the modern AAA studios / publishers have for long aimed to deliver the bare minimum acceptable product to the consumers.
          Consumers that have long ago already accepted pure mediocrity as the gold standard. I've even seen some literal 1997-tier tech and ideas get re-introduced as some sort of cutting edge innovations in recent years.

        FEAR 2 ditching the dynamic lighting system and cutting down the physics did so much damage to the feel of the game, that was a complete travesty.

    • 4 weeks ago

      The gunplay was much worse. Enemies spurted blood but otherwise didn’t react to being shot, which made the combat really feel like shooting tanky blood bags. Scares, graphics and art direction were all incredible though.

      FEAR2 is still great imo, but FEAR 3 really did drop the ball. FEAR 1 expats are good for the extra FEAR gameplay, but are super scuffed in every other regard. Both fuck up the story hard, and the levels are pretty nonsensical.

        There's a lot of stuff about the guns in FEAR that's pretty dumb, but I really think it still has some of the best bullet effects in any game. Even though the enemies are really spongy on the highest difficulty (everyone takes 3 headshots), the guns still feel powerful and violent.

    1 is a timeless masterpiece.
    2 is a safe and waterdown sequel that depending on my mood is shit or alright.
    3 is an absolute fucking mess, but god lord, I had so much fun in this games coop an MP.

      Lamest decision for Perseus Mandate did was horrifically killing her off, while I'm glad 2 and 3 retconed that and she survives canonically the trade off is that Beckett from 2 dies for no reason in 3

    F.E.A.R. 2 is the Patrician Choice
    Better level design
    Better fps campaign all around
    Better enemy variety
    Cool mech sections
    No reddit jumpscares
    Better cast of characters
    Naked Alma everywhere you go
    SEXO

    I'm just glad I never listen to Ganker.
    Goddamn, F.E.A.R. 2 is good.

      I'm a big FEAR 2 apologist but you can't help but notice the drop in general combat quality.

        Perseus Mandate added one or two weapons if I remember correctly. It's worth trying just to play with those. I also remember some really egregiously bullet-spongey enemies though.

    1 was great
    2 was kind of soulless but still very competently done and a lot more fun than the style at the time it superficially resembled
    3 was dogshit
