ROCK ON SPLATTERHOUSE!!!!!!!!

\m/(-_-)\m/ \m/(_ _)\m/ \m/(-_-)\m/

I still play it on my Sega Genesis today, especially the third installment. Very few games told a tale as grim as this especially in the bad ending. I was stoked to pick up the remake only to be heartbroken for no news of a sequel.

I remember playing Friday 13th on my ZX Spectrum and being terrified.
Splatterhouse was the coolest thing ever to a 10yo
kid in the arcade. I used to stand and stare at the 'insert coin' intro screen until someone with money came along and played it. Oh the memories......

I loved the Nightmare on Elm St for NES.. That game was hilarious! Seeing Fred Kruger jump around barely touching your character yet you still take damage was priceless to see..
