man I really like horror as a thing but can we throw away the whole using mental illness as a quick & easy killer motivation thing c’mon
like I played a horror game I’d been recommended the other day and when it opened with “you’re a reporter and you have to check out this insane asylum" I physically rolled my eyes
it doesn’t even make sense because mentally ill people are actually statistically much more likely to be victims of violence than to ever actually perpetrate it?? it’s literally just scaremongering carried over from our society’s history of disliking and distrusting mentally ill & disabled people
less of this + more mentally-ill horror protagonists tbh
insane asylum is a terrifying concept but not for the reason those games intend
I want to see a haunted insane asylum trope with evil horrible ghosts like it always is but as the movie goes on, the main characters slowly realize the ghosts trying to kill them were the doctors.
shut up and take my money
it sounds like the game you were playing was outlast and the people there are crazy because they were experimented on by terrible doctors so.
