Most unsettling game of E3: Rule of Rose
Developer: Punchline / Shirogumi
Release Date: Fall 2006
Given that nearly every other PS2 game on this list has a numeral in it somewhere, we think it's only fair to include at least one that tries to stand on its own. It wasn't easy to pick just one, but we think Rule of Rose deserves the recognition. A survival-horror adventure about a young girl forced to find gifts for murderous children in a gigantic zeppelin, it's certainly an original concept.
It's a creepy one, too, filled with beautiful, darkly atmospheric visuals and spooky puzzles - one of which is how your defenseless heroine can survive against the monsters that roam the halls of the airship. We haven't seen a lot of Rule of Rose
so far, but what we have seen has us fascinated.
