Folsom Prison Blues: Gaming’s Greatest Prison Levels

OXCGN:

"When this time of year comes around, our thoughts begin to condense and our vision begins to narrow: E3 is right around the corner.

If we choose to come out of this daze, we may not enjoy the circumstances in which we may find ourselves, such as an annoyed OXCGN Editor in Chief demanding that I produce an article that isn’t a review.

My thoughts immediately read, “I feel as if I’m trapped inside a journalistic prison.” And then it hit me!

Here are, in no particular order, some of gaming’s best prison levels (also known as “Places I Hope To Never Visit”)." (Call of Duty: Black Ops, Gears of War, Half-Life 2, Metal Gear Solid, PC, PS3, Saints Row 2, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent, Xbox 360)

Black Ops probably takes the cake for me, but that Metal Gear scene makes me pretty nostalgic, too.

The Suffering on Xbox was a pretty neat prison game. I remember shiving a lot of people.

For me nothing beats those haunting old fashioned hospital or orphanage levels that seem a lot like prisons!

Actual prisons? Chronicle of Riddick...?

Yeah. Chronicles of Riddick and Mafia II's prison levels were the first that came to mind for me.

The prison in the Demons Souls level "Tower of Latria" (3-1) was so atmospheric and haunting, the moans of the demented and tortured prisoners, the sweet but chilling singing of one prisoner that gets louder as you get closer, the banging of steel from another one, the bell ring of the deformed wardens.... doubt i'll forget it anytime soon.

Chronicle of Riddick was pretty memorable too.
