Remothered: Tormented Fathers Stormind Games/Darril Arts Many people assume that just because the original Resident Evil game was the first video game that was called a “survival horror” game that it was also the first horror experience as well.

The Secret World Legends Funcom Being a huge lifelong fan of luminary weird fiction author H.P.

SOMA Frictional Games I was guiding SOMA’s main protagonist, Simon, down an underwater corridor which reminded me of a decrepit, submerged version of one of the gloomy hallways on board the dilapidated space station Sevastopol, in Alien: Isolation.
