  • Blog Post: Celebrating The Fatal Frame Series

    How many games truly terrorize you? The Fatal Frame series may have never reached a wide audience, but those who experienced it can't deny that it's one of the most memorable horror franchises. In fact, I would call the Fatal Frame games some of the scariest ever, and I'm not alone. Director... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion — Kojima Is The Change Silent Hill Needs

    Silent Hill has always been near and dear to my heart. I grew up watching scary movies, and when I found a video game that scratched the same itch, I was hooked. I love how the horror genre messes with your psyche, making you question everything. Did something just move? I hear footsteps, is something... More

  • Blog Post: Replay – Clock Tower

    The Clock Tower series made its debut in North America back '97 on the PS1, quickly becoming a cult classic. The gameplay focused on running and hiding instead of brawn, and excelled by combining elements of survival horror and adventure games. Clock Tower introduced us to Scissorman and swapped... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Raw Danger!

    In 2006, a Japanese studio called Irem developed a survival action game unlike any other. The game was called Zettai Zetsumei Toshi 2: Itetsuita Kiokutachi, which literally translates into The Desperate City 2: Frozen Memories, but since we didn’t get the first Desperate City, western players had...

  • Blog Post: Should The Term "Survival Horror" Die?

    I’ve always considered myself a big survival-horror fan, but the more I thought about it, the less I understand what the term “survival horror” even means – especially in this day and age. I had a conversation with Game Informer’s resident horror expert Tim Turi to find... More
  • Blog Post: Celebrating Lesser-Known Horror Games

    Recognizable horror franchises like Silent Hill and Resident Evil are adored by fans, but what about the scary games that didn’t receive much time in the spotlight? This Halloween, instead of giving you the predictable “Best Horror Games” list, I wanted to shine a light on some under... More
  • Blog Post: Ten Comical Video Game Music Videos

    There's nothing I love more than wasting time exploring the seemingly infinite offerings from YouTube and discovering hilarious videos, and some I wish I had never seen.

  • Blog Post: The Wrong Kind Of Scary - Worst Horror Games Ever

    When done right, horror-based video games are just as thrilling as the latest scare-fest in theaters. When they go wrong, they are more laughable and unbearable than a low-budget student horror flick. With terrible pacing, cheesy moments, and lousy mechanics, these titles represent what happens when... More

    The release of Metro 2033 in 2010 earned the game a devoted cult following.

  • Blog Post: Dissecting Survival Horror: What Makes The Genre Special

    Survival horror games are about building up to those perfect scares. All the best series have memorable moments that have defined the genre. Remember your first glimpse of Scissorman from Clock Tower or Pyramid Head from Silent Hill? But in this generation, it feels like the genre has almost been abandoned... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Cold Fear

    On most episodes of Replay, we pop in a game that one or all of us have some kind of memory of (be it fond or negative). Other times, we grab a random game in the vault that none of us have played (hell, that's how we discovered the now-legendary Overblood ). This is one of those other times, as... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Silent Hill

    While it was undoubtedly inspired by Resident Evil, Silent Hill managed to offer a completely different breed of fear than Capcom's mega-hit. Rather than relying on jump scares, Konami's series was more about instilling a constant feeling of dread. Whether it was from the suffocating fog that... More
