I’m not sure where the you get the 2000s were bland… there were great horror game pretty much every year of the decade.


#3

If this is an history of horror in video games, where is Doom?


#4

I was surprised not to see Higurashi no Nako Koro ni… or pretty much anything Japanese.


#5

I didn’t watch it yet, but I seriously hope they mention Splatterhouse and perhaps Chiller.


#6

Two/2 games with giant ants. :smiley:


#7

Lack of Chzo was inexcusable.


#8

What? No Hugo’s House of Horrors? It’s right there in the title!


#9

The Resident Evil AKA Biohazard Series, the Fatal Frame AKA Zero Series, The Silent Hill Series and I´m sure a bunch of others I can´t be bothered to look up right now – all Japanese.

It’s interesting just how generic and bland survival horror games were throughout the 2000s: same palette, same lighting, same mutants, same tricks.

Yeah, BioShock looks the same as Silent Hill, and you can’t tell Cryostasis from those.

That’s cool - not being a gamer, I had no idea. Also, the English titles fooled me.
