Camera Obscura: why Project Zero should be revived for next gen

OXM - Torch gripped tightly in hand, I ascend the mouldering stairs of the mansion and slide the tearing paper partition to. A room, deathly quiet and lit by a single, stuttering candle greets me. It's empty, but for a second I could have sworn I saw a twisted face framed with long, lank hair staring back at me from the shadows. I ready my camera. (Culture, Project Zero)

The daytime apartment bits in the second one are terrifying.

That was the third one actually "Project Zero 3: The Tormented" but yeah I agree with you, the way ghosts started to invade your apartment and only sanctuary was incredibly creepy.

Ah, I stand corrected.

I had no idea the invasion thing was coming. I think the first hint you're given is when you see a shadow pass the end of a corridor. I almost wet myself.

So true. I remember hating the apartment bits at first because I thought it broke up the horror....then freaky shit started happening in the apartment, and I quickly changed my mind! The shower scene was creepy as hell.

Great article, I love the Project Zero franchise and have been lucky enough to have played all of them to completion so far.

I really hope the franchise makes a comeback this coming gen, it's the best survival horror out there right now IMO so I would hate to see it fall by the way side due to so called AAA games blocking it.

Gonna have to go back and play them again sometime I think.
