    I recently acquired a Wii at a yard sale and modded it to play GameCube ISOs from a external HDD. I played the opening of ED about a week or so ago on it and liked it. Looking forward to playing the rest when I'm done finishing RE4 for the 13th time.

    I did. The sanity thing "brilliance" was blown out of proportion since then. It's very easy to control the sanity meter, and thus you only get insanity effects if you really want to, and then you'll already know why the games is supposedly erasing your save files.

    I really don't buy that many people were fooled by that. It's just a gimmick.

    Yeah, I don't remember much about it. Overrated. I played it b/c it some tard compared it to Torment. It did have some cute visual gags.

    It's the only one I've completed. It wasn't very scary at all.

    I watched a let's play of it once because I was curious what it was, I found it a bit overrated.

    I played it last year and it was a very typical example of a mediocre console game that we idolize only because it was released long ago, even moreso considering it was exclusive to one specific console, which somehow always decuplates the nostalgia (I guess because it limits the number of people who have actually played it and know better).

    It's not that it's bad, just that it's... not much of anything. You can play it more or less on autopilot if you are curious, but it wouldn't feel out of place in a spooky indie sale on Steam.

    The first playthrough was exciting but soon was clear that was all fluff and flavor, repetitive patterns, easy ‘puzzles’ and even easier combat, the only original thing was the beginning:
    Show Spoiler
    where basically you start as the villain and choose the enemy god for that playthrough.


    Besides, completing it three times you get the secret final:
    Show Spoiler
    It was all planned by the fourth god, but nothing comes out of it.

    Yeah, because I like Lovecraft and people talked positiv about the sanity stuff on the early internet. This game is just boring.

    Yes, I meant ED.

    I don't remember any other E.T game besides the Atari 2600 one.

    I have a copy but never really played it.

    I'm a big fan of horror, but games based on paranormal or psychological horror don't do much for me. Give me sci-fi horror any night of the week.
