But unlike most, I don’t grab the longest stick I can find and try to fend off that darkness. Instead, I lay out a bowl of milk, with DARKNESS written on the side, and I let it come feed and nest by my side. I think it is important we all do that from time to time, for too much of anything, even goodness, can over saturate and spoil us. And it is the appeal and draw of that dark side that makes me truly enjoy survival horror games, as well as violent moments in action games.
