Oh, what do you know? My review of Fatal Frame 5 (and its extremely booby shrine maidens??) is up!
Full disclosure, I only spent 15+ hours playing/10+ hours writing about this game so I could necropost this thread and continue tracking my decade-long 180 on Fatal Frame 3, which has practically become my favorite in the series now.
(practically because like, Fatal Frame 2′s ending tho, come on, wow)
With warning for spoilers, I’ll say:
REALLY GLAD THEY RETCONNED GHOST DREAM INCEST INTO THE STORY. WHAT MIKU HINASAKI REALLY WANTED ALL ALONG WAS TO BONE HER DEAD BROTHER, HUH? OKAY, WELL I MEAN THESE SERIES HAVE ALWAYS HAD WEIRD DISPLAYS OF AFFECTION BETWEEN FAMILY MEMBERS THAT MAKE THEM DIFFICULT TO RECOMMEND TO AVERAGE HUMAN BEINGS BUT THANKS FOR PUTTING IT OUT IN THE OPEN THAT MIKU GOT GHOST PREGNANT AND THAT MIU’S ABSENTEE DAD IS ACTUALLY HER LONG-DEAD [D]UNCLE. CRIPES. FATAL FRAME I WANT TO LIKE YOU SO MUCH BUT WHY DO YOU HAVE TO RUIN EVERYTHING BY BEING SO WEIRD ALL THE TIME.
These games man, these games. 😕 Well, I guess I’m glad they made another one?
