Real Horrorshow: Haunting Ground | Meodia

Horror is a genre that across entertainment mediums focuses on one thing: making an audience feel a very specific group of emotions. While this could be said about all genres of fiction across Film, Television, and Literature, the same cannot necessarily be said for videogames. In the videogame landscape, ‘horror’ games tend to be categorized more on their content or setting more so than actually making the player feel fear or discomfort. The following point cannot be stressed enough: simply having monsters or dimly lit hallways does not mean a videogame is a true horror experience. There are many elements that go into making a great piece of horror in videogames, and often the best examples come from games that are not traditionally classified as ‘Survival Horror’. In the Real Horrorshow column, I will be analysing and discussing various videogames that I believe are standout entries in the genre, and what it is that makes them exemplary pieces of horror. (Capcom, Haunting Ground, PS2, PS3, Retro, Survival/Horror)

Amazing game.
I would say it was ahead of its time.

Timeless classic that got shafted due to lack of advertisement on top of alot of BS reviews complaining about sexism and lack of weapons.

This would be the only game I would buy from Capcom if given the HD treatment........
