Happy Friday the 13th! Jason is over right now, he says to tell you guys, "Hi."
I get that survival horror is about being afraid, running away from an unstoppable evil. But Jason is almost too damned goofy to really work as a big-bad in a survival horror game. Maybe that's why there hasn't been a Friday the 13th game that was really all that... good.
As we sit back and watch this thrilling gameplay from the 80's NES game, let's ponder: What if there was a new Friday the 13th game with all the cinematic trappings of a cheesy 80's slasher flick... in which you played the slasher? It'd flip the whole paradigm on its head—I don't know how it would work exactly, how it would be a game and not just a really weird murder simulator. But it might be fun! You know, like Naughty Bear except not awful.
