John Carpenter has enjoyed Fallout 76 and Horizon Forbidden West, but Red Dead Redemption’s horse has been too much for him

If we think of great masters of the horror genre in cinema, one of the names that should be put on the table is that of John Carpenter. The director of The Thing is very passionate about the world of video games and in a recent interview he has once again demonstrated that link.

Through The New Yorker, Carpenter points out that the industry has not yet reached its full potential, since “video games are still young.” The creative began in the world through the legendary Sonic the Hedgehog, in 1992. An instant crush for Carpenter.

The best games of 2022 for PC

“I fell in love,” he acknowledges, while indicating that his son helped him in the task of getting even more into Halo titles or the platform genre. Although his main bastion is retro games, the truth is that Carpenter does not deprive himself of taste the honeys of the most current works. In fact, he’s completely hooked on the Bethesda Wasteland.

“I’ve been playing a game for a while. It’s called Fallout 76. Fallout games are fun, it’s like a post-apocalyptic world. This game had a rough launch, with issues and bugs, but I really like it. There’s an amazing game called Horizon Forbidden West. An amazing game.”

Once it’s clear that he’s fascinated by both titles, the director laments that Red Dead Redemption didn’t have the same effect on him. His weak point was run into the “damn horse”which he could not climb as it was “too difficult”.

Regardless, Carpenter notes that “I’m pretty good after all the years I’ve played. But I was terrible with that one. The controls weren’t intuitive, at least for me.”
