The SCP Foundation Thread

Post by Gigantis »

Is anyone here a fan of the SCP Foundation? I've been getting more into it recently, although i'm still really only fluent on the first 999 of them. 096 is my favorite so far!

SCP just feels like the quickest way to severely water down and quickly tell sporadic horror stories so that they can't be used down the line without someone saying "HEY SCP DID THIS!!!"

The fact that there's well over 1200 of these stories does not give me a good feeling about the future of storytelling.

For every horror story restricted to an SCP, it then can no longer be used or thought of anywhere else without comparisons or even in a rare situation, trademarks.

Oh my god there's more than 6000 of them?

Rip.

Seems like a meaningless grab of every conceivable monster idea under the sun. It should focus on building up a few monsters or characters or horror stories. Not literally thousands.
I unapologetically, wholeheartedly, and without a doubt hate Godzilla vs Kong.

The "Tales" section gives some good insight to the more popular of them like 682, 106, 173 and 096 etc. And even the more obscure guys get some recognition in some posts.

TBH most SCP's are super obscure and only superfans are really gonna recognize them while watching a horror movie similar to SCP-1471 or whatever. (you could argue that one in particular already happened with that Countdown movie that came out in 2019)
