I bought this game right around when it first came out, and I have always been a fan. I'm a fan of dead things. A fan of zombies, and a fan of anything rotten, smelly, and nasty. But you know what I'm not a fan of? The A: DD fanbase. I have had absolutely enough of what these kids have to say-- half of them haven't even played the game. They get to maybe... the Wine Cellar (not even), or they play the demo, and then they're all like LOLOLOL I PLAYD AMNEESA DURR DURR. 8'B

Something that I think is absolutely ridiculous is the way that people's online walkthroughs have turned into memes. So yeah, these people have every right to make Let's Plays where they scream and mess themselves, and some of them were intended to be funny, definitely. But it seems like, to me at least, that the quotations and lines from the walkthroughs have sort of become... integrated into the game, or something? MangaMinx, Pewdiepie, Jenomorph, and DILDOBITCH didn't fuckin' create these games. They didn't create walkthroughs for you to create memes out of it, either.

How many of you actually know (without consulting the wiki) what a Servant Brute Gatherer is. Or a Kaernk. Or what the purpose of Tampter is.  Half of you probably don't even know why Agrippa is being chained up in Alexander's basement. Maybe some of you don't even know who Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa is (or was). Anyone who has played the game would know these things.

Can you tell me where Frictional Games is located? Who's Mikko Tarmia, where's he from? How about Jens Nilsson? Granted, yes, I am a HUGE fan of this company, and especially of Amnesia, so I don't suppose that everyone is going to know these things. I just think that this game has turned into something that is all about yaoi, buttsecks, and general gay-ass faggotry. Maybe some of you should sit in a dark room and play the game (with headphones or speakers, it doesn't matter, as long as it's loud). You WILL be scared---- oh wait. No you won't, because you've already watched a million silly and ridiculous walkthroughs, so you know EVERYTHING that happens in the game.

I'm also extremely sick of the entire cosplay shenanigans that take place in this fandom. Unless you are going to take the time to actually make yourself look older/haggard/ancient/accurate/manly/whatever, then don't bother. You just look silly and ridiculous. I'm not saying that I disagree with crossplay. I'm saying that cosplay is supposed to be about dressing up as a character. Half-ass, girlie cosplays of "Daniel" and "Alexander" are just stupid, despicable, and maybe even disrespectful to the creators who took the time to create these characters. Alexander has a significant other, did you know that? You would, had you actually played the game. You'd also notice that the reason he wants the Orb is so that he can use its power to return to her. He is not raping Daniel, he is not lusting after him, he is MANIPULATING him. He is USING Daniel to murder innocent people.

Perhaps I am naive, perhaps I am stupid. I am a huge fan of everything Sweden and Finland. This sort of makes my opinion on this topic more elevated and biased, definitely. But I think that the way that fans trash this game is absolutely ridiculous, and it has gone way too far. This game was intended to be horrific and frightening, and it has turned into a lot of nonsense. I think this is pretty sad, because even though I've played through is probably 20+ times, I do still get scared at times. I've had enough of this gay-ass fanbase and their garbage. Stop ruining games.

I agree with you. I actually don't like scary games like Amnesia but I've heard a lot about it and they say it is the scariest game ever. That was my reason to play Amnesia. I was scared like fuck omgkdshaflk;fas but I loved it. It was a fantastic game. Later I searched for more information about Amnesia (like custom stories and stuff) and I saw the video of DILDOBITCH. I laughed my ass off. It was funny because it was he did it for himself or something.
But when I saw that shit of PDP, I can't say he is funny at all. He is scared of everything AND he is only making these video's for his fans. THAT is what I hate about him. It looks like he doesn't give a fuck about the story itself. And what the shit, Stephano, PIGGEHHH, and all that other stuff.

Also when I saw the trailer of Amnesia: a Machine for Pigs, I was like: This looks amazing! Maybe a part outside in the dark streets? But when I looked at the comments... YAY MORE PDP or PIGGGEH HAZ COME. I almost got a heart attack. I really hope he doesn't fuck this up... >.>

By the way, do you have steam? And if you do can I add you to my list? (:

DILDOBITCH was SO hilarious. I can watch that video and laugh over and over again-- and you're right!!!! It's because he did it for himself!! He was on Skype with a bunch of friends, and he was trying not to shit himself while playing the game. It got posted on youtube because it was hilarious as fuck.

PDP just... ughasdfa;wlkejf;. He posts stuff because he likes his fans. It bothers me SO much, like you have no idea. I can't wait for My Little Piggy: Machines are Magic.

HEY, HOW ABOUT.... NO. PLEASE, I DO NOT WANT THE DAMN FANGIRLS RUINING THIS GAME, MOTHERFUCKER. *huff huff* I was so mad-- literally within hours of the trailer being posted, there were OMSOGMGMEOGMEOMGEEEEEE PIIGGEEEHEHEHEHEHHHHH LUV LUV PEWDIEEEE EEEEEEEEE OMGUHHHH SQUEELING

Um, also... I do remember you commenting on this before, making some sarcastic comment about gays or something.

If you really have something to say about what I've written, then why not just say it? Clearly this post irks you enough for you to comment on it separately twice (when nobody else has done so), and each time you have been pretty agitated about what I've written.

Is there anything I've written that's really so unreasonable?

The funnier thing is that I doubt you'll even respond to this. I'm not trying to provoke you, either. I just find it odd that you come on here with all of your annoyed-ness making lackluster comments that you won't even respond to. I'm here to chat about the Amnesia fanbase. I'm not here to watch you make sarcastic, stupid, or useless comments and then leave.

I pretty much agree with this...? I like watching the LPs of the game (okay, really, I only ever watched two), and I was watching them as I was playing the game. I will admit that I couldn't handle the terror that was Storage for a few weeks there, but really the story brought me back. And honestly, I only watch one LP-er anymore, and he takes the game pretty seriously I guess, because he (almost) always stops and reads the journals and whatnot, even in custom stories (unless it's a particularly bad one). Sooooo I'm pretty much clueless as to all the stuff that comes with that particular territory of the fandom, save for what I've picked up here and there.

I will admit that I made up names for the monsters as I was playing, because it's easier to scream "AHMYGODIT'SFREDDY" (the Kaernk) than scream "FJDFHJHDFHWATERLURKERDEMONTHINGFROMHELL" as you're trying to do Olympic-speed hurdles on boxes while flinging dead carcasses to the far reaches of the earth in hopes that it smells better to whatever the hell is splashing after you than you do. (And besides, you don't find out it's called a Kaernk until you hit the Weyer's Tonic, I think. Unless you go spelunking through the game files.) So I'm guilty of adopting some of the game's memes by saying Mr. Tall and Mr. Face. I probably would have made my own names up for them, but my friend who introduced me to the game called them that, so it stuck. I don't really see the harm in small things like that, because I'm guilty of giving nicknames to Alexander and Daniel to make fun of them as I play without internet memes prompting me to do so. It's something I do naturally as I play.

Memes are a bit of a coping mechanism for some people who legitimately play the game, to make it a little less terrifying (no luck there). I'll admit to giggle-snorting at some of the fanbase things like the slashing, and some of the slashers have gorgeous art, but it's a passing-glance thing for me. I don't pay too much attention to the fanbase, actually. I have an LP-er who does custom stories (and other games) that I enjoy watching, and there are a few fancomics that I'm fond of. (One of which entails Daniel hiding behind a door while the Gatherers have a debriefing about how to catch him.)

I understand your frustration, but here's something that will cheer you up: To the average mainstream and/or casual gamer, Amnesia is still synonymous with absolute terror. I've tried to interest a few people in the game only for them to tell me I'm outright insane for enjoying a game that makes me scream like a small child in a horror movie even after the umpteenth playthrough. This weirdness that frustrates you so much isn't quite as ubiquitous as you think.

I think the best thing really is to just enjoy playing and find some hardcore fans like yourself and pretty much ignore all the people that aren't fans of the game, but of the LP-ers. And well... Slashers gonna slash, I guess. There are always going to be people who don't take it seriously, and are, in general, just ridiculous with everything in a fandom. All it's doing is ruining the game for you; don't let them do that, you know? Because think, if not for some of the general meme-ness of the game, some people wouldn't have found it and fallen in love with the horrors that await.

Just hunker down and play leapfrog with our lovely friend the Kaernk.

I kinda laugh when people make up these silly memes to try and take some of the fright out of the game-- coz really, it just doesn't work. As soon as you go to sit down again and play, you better put on your diaper, coz you will piss yourself AND MORE. Especially if you haven't played the game before.

I totally know what you mean about trying to get others to play it-- lots of people think I am totally and completely crazy for loving this game. BUT WTF, IT'S GREAT. SERIOUSLY!! o_o

I try not to get too upset, and usually I don't-- usually I end up just deleting all of the deviations that come from the Amnesia groups without giving it a second thought. However there are times like this when I really juts blow up. :XD:

Oh goodness no it doesn't work one bit, even when you're a seasoned player, a well placed hallucination makes you scream and fear-quit. It just makes it a bit easier to identify with the game with some.

I can't get anyone to play it. XD I get a lot of people watching me play, and asking me about the game, but I'm surprised about how unwilling people are to scare themselves. XD

It's completely understandable. And it's completely OK to ignore the stuff about the fandom that you dislike.

I do understand what you mean, and, from my standpoint, though I have not played for myself but watched my friends play it, Its the scariest game I've come to see. As a fan of All pewdiepie's let's plays and videos though, I should explain that in his first amnisia walkthrough, He explains that he does not like taking horror as a joke just to downplay it, and People like him have infact given the game advertizement and therefore gotten the company more money. So even if they give people the wrong Idea, in the long run it helps the company, and maybe they'll create another game like it.

~Gotta see the positive side~

The next game is actually scheduled to come out around Halloween this year. I do agree that PDP helps advertise the game, but... almost all of my friends have pirated the game, because they don't want to spend money on a game that they might not be able to play because they're too scared to complete it. Piracy hurts small companies like Frictional a LOT. They are a team of like 6 or 7 people (if I remember correctly), and they have said that they are not even really a "company"-- that they're just more of a bunch of guys who make games for fun.

I understand the advertisement, yes, that does help. However, the multitude of negative points really does not make PDP's ONLY good quality seem beneficial in the least.

I, myself, have never played the game, I EXTREMELY WANT TO, but just haven't found the time. I do find it absolutely gorgeous from all of the non-commentated plays, and did watch one commentated version quickly for laughs (Radbrad, I think) I have watched people like RadBrad and Pewdiepie play mods and such. I like them all, I find their videos funny and lets me see the creativity of others who like the series (and some pretty screwed up stuff as well. Seriously. Ponies in Amnesia XD)

I absolutely love the game with Justine, I did manage to play this one once at a friends house who gave in to my curiosity for the short "sequel" and made it to Malo in the water scene before I got canned. I like the concept for this game, I especially love the suitors (specially Malo, idk why XD)

I'll admit, some of the cosplays are well done, but others look like they just really wanna kawaii pair with their counterpart Daniel/Alexander couplings.

Yeah, I can see that people REALLY get out of hand with this fanbase, but doesn't that happen to all of them? I mean, KH is my favorite example, imo.

Okay, prepare for a long response, omg X'3

First of all, as you can probably see by my user name, I am a fan of KH. Now... that fanbase is one that is OBVIOUSLY out of hand. It's ridiculous-- but that's kind of expected, imo. There are many feminine-looking characters, lots of implied yaoi, and many aspects of characters (regarding Hearts and such) that are left open-ended (at least until you've seen the ending of DDD, hehehe). I guess I really did expect to be thrust into a world of weeaboos and buttsecks when I started playing KH, and conversing with other KH fans.

But... Amnesia? Seriously? It's a fucking HORROR game!!! H O R R O R ! ! ! ! Do the players not see this?? I am just surprised that such a serious, sickening, gory, and plain old terrifying game would reach the extremes that it has. I love Justine-- most of the "fans" have never played it. I find Justine to be a lot more nerve-racking than the main game, probably because of the no-save feature. Malo is terrifying. I sometimes just quit right at the water part because I can't ever get past him and he is a scary fucker ; n;

I am definitely a gamer, but I don't play a ton of games. I know of 5 or 6 games (out of maybe 20 games that I play) that don't have ridiculous fanbases. The ratio of crazy to not-crazy fanbase is obviously like 4:1. However... I guess I just really didn't expect a game such as Amnesia to be affected by this evil plague.

yeah, I'm a KH fan and I agree the feminine look and seriously awkward sort of implications between some of them fuel this.
I think most of these fans haven't seen this game, which is the reason they romanticize it because Pewdie and such makes it a whole lot more funny than it is. Crying in the corner is NOT fun people >.> Especially behind potatoes.

I agree with you on Justine, the no save feature freaks the SHIT out of me, and Malo too, because I think he's the only one that can see, correct? (Sorry, like I said I've played it up to malo and watched the end on walkthough, so I can't really remember for sure, but him yelling at me before he got me "I SEE YOU" was a great implication.)

Same, I'm a gamer, i just manage to fangirl over most of the things that have the scarier fansites.

Yes, the "I see you" makes me think that he really can see. Also it doesn't help that you're sloshing through water making A MILLION DECIBELS OF NOISE!! >.<;;;;; so scary omg .__.

This one time when I was playing, I was trying to transfer that certain cog wheel to the place where it goes (so you can save the person in the water part, or however it goes.... I can't quite remember exactly). I had a box in front of me that I was tossing, so that if Malo came, I would be able to see it ahead of time (since he would be alerted to the box, and such). EXCEPT.... HE'S SMARTER THAN THAT. HE JUST CAME RIGHT AT ME, AND I WOKE UP ALL OF MY ROOMMATES WITH THE SCREAMING!! o_o

lol, my friend warned me ahead of time that Malo was not to be fooled around with, so i sort of waded in the water, half crying, half screaming as I heard that dreaded noise "Justine...let me taste you...." I said screw to the man that ou were supposed to save (That was the policemen, correct? I managed to save the second one on pure accident and the first one my friend showed me how) and the all powerful video game punished me with Malo's ability to charge at you from miles away with the mission to eat you up.

I agree and disagree with some of these.
I watched a lot of playthroughs before playing the game by myself, I admit that. But when I played it by myself, I got scared anyway. (I later finished the game with my friend.) The story also fascinated me from the start and it really bothers me when I look at playthroughs (main story, custom stories...) where people don't even BOTHER to focus on the story. They pick up journal pages but don't read them... Also, it's not fun to look at or play a custom story that's just full of jump scares.
And yes, I know how you feel when everyone just calls the monsters with weird names. I've gotten quite used to them, but I like to call them with their original names. That's why some of my friends get really confused when I'm talking about Grunt, Brute and so on. Sometimes I use their fanmade names just because I want my friends to understand what am I talking about.
Then about that slash/yaoi shipping... I don't personally mind about that. I do too ship Alexander and Daniel, but I understand if some people don't like it. It's just what happens in almost every fandom. People always argue about shipping. This is one of the reasons why I feel really nervous when I want to draw Amnesia art. I'm scared of what people think of my head canons, weird Amnesia dreams, art style and so on.
I'm planning to make Daniel (or Alexander) cosplay soon, and I think that cosplay is just for fun. We can't help that most of us are girls or that some of us just aren't so good at cosplaying than others.
( Oh, and it makes me happy to see that you're a fan of Swedish and Finnish things, because I'm a Finn myself. c': )

I am pretty sure I have stalked your profile once or twice before... due to something Amnesia related, I'm positive. :XD:

Fanart doesn't necessarily bother me-- even if it's explicit. If it is well drawn, and a lot of effort was put into it (like your artwork), then it's always tolerable. Even if I don't like the content, I can still appreciate good art (that applies to most people, I think). What bothers me is when I see drawing after drawing of Daniel wearing kitty ears being hugged by Alexander-- all of which has been drawn in MS Paint of course. I do understand that not everyone is an amazing artist, but people should friggin' think twice before posting something that took 10 minutes to draw if it really doesn't exhibit any artistic principles. (Lots of aspiring artists have criticized me for trying to impose artistic principles on them, such as balance, unity, rule of 3rds, coloration, etc. Stuff like this is meant to be constructive criticism, not insults. Know what I mean?)

The cosplay thing is a big issue for me-- cosplay is not just about throwing together a lack-luster piece of shit that vaguely resembles some character from some video game. Cosplay requires effort, time, and dedication. I guess that's what I wish to see more of-- some cosplayers who are truly dedicated to making a nice cosplay. A little makeup is all it takes to make your face look scruffy like Daniel's, yet half of the Daniel cosplayers out there don't even bother!! D:

And yes, fan art like that can be really annoying and I understand what you mean about the criticism part. Some people (sadly) just aren't so used to receive criticism. I was like that too when I was younger, and now when I think about it, I just didn't understand if someone told me that drawing something is wrong, weird etc and I need to fix this and that. My point is that it's hard to tell someone that "drawing kitty Daniel is weird" if they don't understand why. I believe most of those people will understand better when they're a little older. That's why when I see such drawings, I just shrug and forget about it. I see no point to even try telling them that, if they're just going to attack me like "NOOO WHAT DO YOU MEAN ABOUT THAT? LOL YOU'RE JUST JEALOUS. I'M GOING TO TELL MY FRIENDS THAT YOU ABUSED ME." I've met people like that and it's just... argh. :I

You've got a point there. I do too love seeing great costumes. It's just that, for example, I'm not good at sewing or things like that. At all. Even if I tried to make a cosplay by myself and put a lot of effort in it, I believe it wouldn't look so good anyway. (Good thing that mom and dad always help me making costumes though.) Second thing is that I'm scared of everything that could hurt my eyes or so. Including eye make up. (Sounds weird, I know.) I hope that a friend of mine will help me with my Daniel/Alexander make up later...

The first two sections of your comment were reasonable, and I can understand that. If you're laid back, then I envy you. I have a horrible temper, and when I see ridiculous crack-ass bullshit garbage fanart, I just blow up.

I sort of agree with the whole "to each their own" thing, however... deviantart is a PUBLIC social networking site that focuses on artwork. I guess it just bothers me that nobody takes the time to consider that maybe not everybody on this website wants to read their sexually explicit (and poorly written/drawn) Daniel/Alexander lemon nonsense.

I honestly just play the game to play the game, and like it. Every single thing has a crazy fanbase SOMEWHERE, so, I just choose to ignore it. I do love Pewdiepie, and I think he's pretty funny... I don't see what's wrong with making memes and junk out of it, because it's something that some of the fans just find funny. I am getting sick of AlexanderxDaniel stuff, but, if that's what they want to do, I'll turn a blind eye to it. I get whigged out when I see PewdiexStephano crap because, well, it's literally an object model in a game. That's just strange. I don't really see the issue with women cosplaying men, but I see that on a different topic and more of a gender-standards issue, because some women aren't identified as women, and so forth, but either way, I don't mind it as long as it's an actually well-done cosplay. I wish more people understood that they look awful, when they clearly look awful, and shouldn't cosplay---unless of course, it's for a laugh or whatever.

Anyway. I get what you mean about understanding the folks at Frictional Games and knowing every single detail about the game, but I don't feel like you need to do major research and a history lesson to be a fan of the game, but that's just me. I'm not disagreeing with you completely, I'm just saying you're being extremely direct. XD

Some of the memes are pretty great, but when fans take things to an extreme, like you'll find with EVERYTHING including religion, politics, video games, movies, etc., it starts to kill it, so sure, I like the phrase Mr. Tall, Mr. Face because they're humorous and make the game a little less nerve racking for me, but, otherwise, as long as folks aren't going overboard, I don't really mind it much. :D <3

Mostly what I meant by the cosplay thing was that feminine-looking individuals need to take the time to make themselves look scruffy/old if they are going to cosplay Daniel/Alexander. It's like... sheesh, put some effort into your cosplay!! Don't look like a bum!!

I think my directness comes from the fact that I am a Video Game Development major in college-- I just pay attention to that sort of thing. It is probably a stretch for people to know all of the names of the producers. :XD: Well-- except Mikko Tarmia. He's really just exceptional, and his name is listed pretty boldly in the credits, right under MUSIC (he's the only name, if I remember correctly). Idk, maybe it's just me, but usually the people who make the music are remembered, especially when the music is as awesome as it was in Amnesia.

I think that I am just shocked in general that such a good game was cursed with such a fucking retarded fanbase. The game was/is serious and scary, and now it's just full of old men raping young assholes. Like... I don't even know what to make of that. Yeah, I get that some humor is appropriate to take the scary edge off things-- but like... the fanbase takes it way too far sometimes.

pewdiepie can go suck a dick, everything he plays will literally be consumed by his "bro's" try looking up fan art for "cry of fear" 99% of it relates to pewdiepie. He has fake reactions and does immature humor yet he makes a living doing those lets plays, pathetic.

how the hell have you played amnesia for 200 hours ? custom stories ?

OH MY GOD :iconomgshakeplz:

A BOY. A BOY WHO PLAYS AMNESIA-- THIS SORT OF THING EXISTS!?!??! IS THIS REAL LIFE?? ARE YOU A HUMAN BEING?? I was 100% sure that all people who play Amnesia are squealing fangirls @_@ ahhhh!!!!

And yeah, pdp can seriously lick my brown-eye. His reactions are fucking retarded, and his scream is enough to make me go more deaf than I already am. Seriously, if I (a 19 year old girl) can play the goddamn game without making more than a startled hiss, or the occasional gasp, then it's really quite obvious that he's just a fucking faggot who needs to be obliterated. I'm so sick of seeing girls basically line up to get on his Swedish dick. It's effin' sickening. :roll:

And... I've played about 150 hours of the regular game, and the rest are custom stories. I spend a lot of time in the game just analyzing notes and small details, and trying to crash it. I need some new custom stories though (ones that aren't fucking gay and involve Nyan-Cat and shit like that). The game is starting to become less and less scary. But I still love it. I can't wait till the new game comes out in October. <3

The reason why I have like 40 hours or something on amnesia is most of it has gone into testing my custom story maps.

Oh man, that's sick. What program do you use to make the custom stories? I've always wanted to make my own, but it seems like there is no information on how people go about doing so....

[link] I don't do anything for amnesia anymore, most of the community for it sucks, the tools are way too easy to use and all of the custom stories look exactly the same

here's the custom story I worked on ( it was never finished ) I did all the levels for it. [link]
[link] here's one extra from my steam account.

I map for cry of fear now, which is completly boss [link]

Cry of Fear is pretty cheap to get, just buy half life 1 from steam and download cry of fear from here [link] (it's a free mod what was made by a handful of guys in the span of 4 years)

Half Life... another game (well two, really) that I've been meaning to get. Hell, maybe I'll get it just so I can play this Cry of Fear.

Jesus... the list of games I need to obtain and play is just so ridiculously long. I'm the worst excuse for a gamer ever. -_-;;

"Anyone who has played the game would know these things."
I agree... It really does bother me how people can mess up the whole story of the game. Every night I would play Amnesia, no one in the room, headphones on, sound up. I read all the notes, and got really into the game. It really had an amazing story.
And all the people that have never even played Amnesia, it can get pretty annoying on how they don't care about anything in the game and just watch videos for the luls. Sure, I've cracked a joke here and there, but I absolutely love the game. Amnesia is amazing, and I really wish all 'fans' would actually get to know what it's all about :\

I just don't get why everyone has to be SO silly about it. It's not really a "silly" type of game!! >:T
