How to Get Video Game Horror Right

GameFront: In honor of Friday the 13th (which has just come and gone) and the recent release of The Secret World, we thought we’d take a look at video game horror. Horror video games comprise some of the medium’s most vaunted titles, but there have also been conspicuous failures in the genre. What separates good horror games from bad ones? How can we explain the success of mega-franchises like Resident Evil or Silent Hill? (Culture)

Some games that got the horror spot-on:- Eternal Darkness, Realms of the Haunting, Silent Hill 2, Forbidden Siren, Dead Space 1.. to name a few.
