    Yeah it would be a pretty good idea to pick them up to get a good overall understanding for the series, it isn't something you need to do exactly. You'd be just fine without playing any of the titles before, it would just add to the experience if you did that's why i suggest it. If you were to only buy one though i'd HIGHLY suggest getting Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly. Few games are scarier than that one, at least in my opinon.

    Re: Fatal Frame 3: The Tormented

    Sweet, another survivor horror game. I liked Fatal Frame, but I just didn't find it as scary as the Silent Hill series. But the stories are unique, and it's nice to have to battel with something other than guns. BTW, has anyone heard any info on the FF movie that was supposedly in the works? It was going to based on FF1, since it's story it loosly taken from true events. Are the stories of FF2 and 3 supposed to be based on real events too?

    And I remember now, at the top of my lungs in my arms, she dies, she dies.

    Ah, I dunno about the Fatal Frame series.. being based on true events, but the gameplay and camera work, is so frightening, it seems like you're right there. It would creep me out even more if it was based on a true story... wweeiirdd

    Well, it's very loosley based on actual events. If I remember correctly, the only part that's actually true is the part about some people disappearing. Basically, the people who developed the game heard a stroy about some people just going missing, so they turned that idea into a game . So I think that only FF1 is supposed to be 'based on true events' as the box blurb says, and the other games are fictional.

    some says that basing that on the true story is not really true.

    Re: Fatal Frame 3: The Tormented

    Well, I just played Fatal Frame 2, waited till it was dark to play it properly and for the first half hour it was really good, very spooky and had me in a near constant state of suspence. But then the one thing that I feel messed it up was the camera. Once I got that, I had two (well three) things, a means of fighting back, and a meter to detect the presence of most spirits, which kinda kills the suspence when you can see them coming now. The other thing I also had was an opportunity to try and take upskirt shots of Mayu on the stairway

    I'm a bit dissapointed to see that meter is still present in FF3, it really kills the suspence. Instead of walking slowly and cautiously, now I'm charging in and yelling "Boom! Headshot!" when I take a close photo of a spirit.

    Hopefully in FF3 they just make the little indicator not as powerful, I don't want a warning when there's a ghost nearby, let 'em take a bite outta my skull first to give me a jump and alert
