How ‘Amnesia: The Dark Descent’ Is Still The Greatest Lovecraftian Horror Game

Bloody Disgusting: "Yes I’ve played Bloodborne and yes it is an excellent game chock-full of Lovecraftian themes and imagery but today I’m talking about a game that predates Bloodborne by half a decade. While revisiting my back catalog (courtesy of three years worth of PSN’s monthly games), I stumbled upon Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

It's really not. Bloodborne is better for Lovecraft like lore.

To each their own it was one of my favorite horror experience back in 2010 but the game has aged quite poorly, although its to be expected from a game made 8 years ago.

Never played these, grabbed the collection on a psn sale over a year ago but still haven't touched them. I love me some horror games but I just hope it's not so confusingly resourceful like RE. The scare factor dies out when you spend so much time solving really confusing puzzles to progress
