The interest in the recent reveal of Shinji Mikami's The Evil Within only goes to show that the love for horror video games remains as strong as ever. From Haunted House to The Evil Within, CVG goes through a 30-year timeline of horror gaming.
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..
