Maybe I’m just playing the wrong games but thus far pretty much every horror game or game with scary elements (e.g. zombies, monsters) don’t seem to come closer than 4 or so virtual “feet”. One exception is Face your Fears, as some jumpscares get just “inches” away from your face and I think this really steps up the scare factor. As someone who loves the rush of a good fright the lack of similar experiences is disappointing.
Is there any reason why there seems to be this “safety bubble” in so many scary games?
