My favorite horror game: Eternal Darkness

Happy Halloween, readers! The staff is remembering some of our favorite scary games this week. The first one that came to my mind was the GameCube cult classic Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem.

I didn’t buy it because it was a horror game, though I certainly knew of its reputation as being a game that could invoke real more »

I’m experiencing a bit of a dilemma. Horror games have been making a bit of a comeback, especially this year.
