As Halloween fast approaches some of us here at Resolution and our friends share with you the horrors we’ve experienced in games: I used to think I was the sort of blubbering ninny who avoided scary games. I watched my cousin playing through the first Resident Evil, whinged to my parents to buy it for me, received it, and gave up after the first zombie. But looking back, perhaps that was because I was about 10.
As I’ve grown into a less blubbery ninny, I’ve come to embrace horror games and am rarely scared by them any more. Gore? Delicious! Psychopaths? Charming! Hideously malformed grotesqueries from the twisted mind of some deviant? Huggable! All the visual stuff is creepy, but its not scary any more.
