I had an heart attack when the door opened when i played. Ran out of the room lol

Dead Space is a great game to play if you want to give yourself a case of PTSD. On the flip side, EA was the greatest necromorph killer of all.

I wish that they bring dead space trilogy to Nintendo switch like a remastered version or something,that'll be so awesome.

Also can you click for me you crazy purple haired ckicker?

Now that I reread that it sounds so kinky 😂

Respect!

This game is epic and it is UNBELIEVABLE how well it holds up. One of the GOATs.

Kat Mack · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

I used dead space to get over my fear of "horror" — because I couldn't be scared of "jump scare screeching violins". 🤷‍♀️

Kantenschiesser · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

excuse me? scariest moment was the necromorph trying to get into the elevetor in the first 5 min of the game!

Jimmie bastrixer · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

I hope this guy is still in The industry and making his next horror game.

RomiWadaKatsu · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

yeah it'd be cool if he worked on dead space 3. It's truly a shame that the saga has stopped at 2.

Yup, no dead space 3 has been made, none at all.

This is genius and the ways of problem solving kinda teach you to just step back and see it from a better angle

InFaM0us_Chris · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

I KNEW Event Horizon was an inspiration for this game! Dead Space is one of my favorite games of all time and it reminded me of that movie!

Mlt DaWeeD · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

So.. we layer every problem down like onions, alright time to call shrek and his I.T team

teppolundgren · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

0:26 The silliest moment ever captured on film.

Lutfi Ibrahim · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

Good games never die, they replayed.

AnimeT0getherEU · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

I hope that they get the chance to make dead space 4 at some point.

Armand Couleur 29 · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

With a high audio volume…it's harder to resist the shock moments ;D . Resident Evil (4)and Dead Space are my favorit Horror games. What's your favorit or recommendation?
Thank you for Dead Space.
Nice Work! 😉
1+

I personally think video games are scarier than movies because you actually have to act out the scenario and you dont just have to watch somebody do it, and if you fail you have to do it again and again thats the scary part of a video game having to do something that completely freaks you out over and over again

Driver IND_Subha · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

got the most perfect yt ad ever,OBSERVATION game trailer came up

Driver IND_Subha · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

i still remember walking a long hall way with my plasma cutter drawn, just fearing an necromorph ambush, only to be surprised by no attacks. Never have i been so scared since the chainsaw guy in re4 shotgun house

darkfullgor 0_0 · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

PLEASE CREATOR OF DEAD SPACE BRING DEAD SPACE 4 PLEASE….!!!!

PrøudBanditø · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

I watched it… you happy now youtube?

TropiCool · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

I fondly remember the 1st time playing this game how it kept me in constant paranoia where i believed every sound was a monster coming after me; noisy doors closing behind me…monster coming, items falling on the floor…monster coming, crashing sound from the outside…monster coming, pipes cracking…monster coming, can rolling across the floor…monster coming, etc…lol

Jack Mehoff · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

best horror game imo

Setekh Redsand · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

Resident evil 4 was the best and the last of the good ones

Mercenary Tao · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

I like dead space.

The Gamer · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

I dunno why but I got happy when he said half life lol

chris whyte · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

2nd favourite game ever! I'll never forget getting in the lift and bricking myself when the necromorph trying to get in. And Nicole whispering "Isaac" throughout the game. Tension at all times. Master piece

Justin Murphy · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

DS is great. DS2 is amazing. DS3 has a couple amazing moments, but its a mediocre DS game overall.

war hound · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

Bob M · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

15:32 This is amazing, as a dead space veteran, renting dead space from a Blockbuster in summer of 2009; It gives me the chillies to see the blueprints of the creature that jumped at me…
Thank you for your passionate product. My dad and I are huge fans.

Raoul Lammond · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

Servo_Surviver · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

Figures this dude creates horror games given how creepy he comes of as himself

Miles L. · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

Mans a GENIUS

End Boss Eleven · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

It basically an RE4 ripped but still fun to play

Luke · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

we need deadspace remake

ultramegaman555 · May 27, 2019 at 2:17 am

its funny how i found the drag tentacle to be one of the most scariest moments ive seen in a game in a long time.
it felt so new, a different experience, mechanic, engaging, scary, but it was so worth it.
also, i knew instantly he meant that scene when speaking about how long it took/how difficult it was to make.
it is a masterpiece and milestone in gaming horror history for me besides resident evil and f.e.a.r.
