Slender. *Spoiler* Oct. 24th, 2012 @ 08:00 PM Reply

So we all know about Slenderman. The game, the "legend", the movies, whatever. Anyways, I decided I might as well check out the game "Slender", since I watched so many of the fan videos. I was not impressed. I jumped on the first time that he killed me on my first try. But that was because I didn't know about the noise it made. The face wasn't scary at all. He isn't a really terrifying creature.

Andways, on my third or fourth try, I managed to get all eight pages. So I expected "Hey, maybe I'll get to kill the slenderman", or something of equal awesome. Nope. He kills you anyways. The only difference is that this time it cuts to the credits.

Was anyone else disappointed by Slender? For all the hype it got, I felt really let down. Not just by the game. By everything about it.

They pretty much ruined it when the creators said "This is all entirely fiction". Takes away the scare. Not that there was much to be scared of.

That game is weird, I was drinking at a friends house at 1 in the morning and all of a sudden a random black dude whom I nor any of my friends had ever seen before comes downstairs with a laptop and tells me to play the slenderman game. I was creeped out more by the circumstances than the game.

Game was creepy enough, so I don't really care. I'd probably be disappointed if I expected something to happen other than being scared.

1st time playing it

Its only fun when you get scared and I guess the feeling of fear is what hyped it up, fear gives you adrenalin and therefore a thrilling experience from playing the game, but its like heroin, sooner or later you build up a tolerance to its effects until you don't feel anything anymore, the problem I find is that it just wares off too quickly, but the first time experience is what hooks ya and its what makes people hype it up.

It's a shitty overrated (by Reddit) indie game that nobody actually gives a fuck about. The only reason people pretend to like it is because other people pretend to like it. It's bandwagon 101.

Yeah I never really got the "Creep factor" from Slender. Something silently following you, watching you and waiting is scary, but only if you feel that the thing in question could fuck you up if it desired. I never really got that from Slender. Worst part of the game is the annoying ass noise it makes when you die.

Why are people overblowing Slenderman so much?

Some guy just made up the whole thing a few years ago on a troll site!

Slenderman and Marble Hornets was scary when it first started, but now it's like trying to ride a dead horse, just give it up, it's dead.

The rest of your post wasn't worth reading, it still amazes me ho worked up people get over an incredibly unoriginal character just because it is now a meme. Learn your faceless men.

i expected the notes to give you clues on how to kill him so you can only imagine how disappointed i was when i had to let him kill me to end the game. so in other words in slender when you win, you lose. fuck that overly hyped game, but ion all fairness it's ok but nowhere near to being scary

this, it's not so much as disappointing, but was rather made for the challenge of collecting the pages, not to win or to lose but to keep trying, so you made it. You won, so what? Try again and try to do it quicker maybe?

As with most things that start out online, Slenderman was pretty neat when the stories/pictures first arose. I really like the fact that he is a boogeyman created in our generation, not borrowed from old horror stories (see vampires, werewolves, zombies) or re-tooled from the monsters of previous generations (see Rob Zombie's Michael Myers, Freddy v. Jason, Aliens v. Predators).

However, once the game came out and everyone went sorta Slender-crazy, it became too much and overused.

I still think its a great character, and even a fun game, but there needs to be less Slenderman around for a bit.

Also, you young punks don't know what horro is *grumble grumble*

That doesn't make any sense. You're discussing the game specifically and asking others whether they were disappointed by the game.

I don't understand why everyone feels insulted when they're told their topic belongs in the video game forum. Especially when the VG forum is fairly active and would probably get you more informative posts and probably an overall more interesting discussion.
