** The sequel. ''Eternal Darkness'' is one of Creator/SiliconKnights' most well-received [=IPs=], and they've wanted to do a new game for a while. But the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]] has come and gone, the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} was on its way out (and, due to the UsefulNotes/WiiU, is on its way to be obsolete as well), and ''VideoGame/TooHuman'' was an expensive flop. After the failure of ''X-Men: Destiny'', a prototype for a sequel to ''Eternal Darkness'' that never got off of the ground and a lawsuit from Creator/EpicGames, things aren't looking any more hopeful.
** And the spiritual sequel is faring no better, because it has the unfortunate position of being in a hefty Catch22Dilemma. A lot of fans refuse to support it financially because a lot of the original team is not involved, but among those who ''are'' is creative lead Denis Dyack who is also causing a lack of support on account of being accused of shady business deals. He can't step down as he was one of the masterminds of ''Eternal Darkness'' and is deeply integrated into Precursor's work on ''SOTE'', but he would have to in order to appease the vocal majority.

* FollowTheLeader:
** When showcasing the game as a classic favorite of his, [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] actually expressed surprise its novel combat system ''[[{{Averted|Trope}} wasn't]]'' copied in future titles.
** WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay argued there is no reason to not aim for the head, but it must be noted that a number of creatures are more inconvenienced by a lost head than anything else.
