    In my opinion, dark souls is the best horror game to me, though it may not be intended as one, it bases its fear on a truly primal level, knowing so little of whats going on, the intense loneliness even when your near an npc, the whole world is dark and dreary, ruined, and knowing even the simplest of enemies can bring you death, which has severe in game consequences, this turns every level into a labyrinth of horror, and the bosses are truly grotesque, and their power is no laughing matter, it may not make you scream, but it has an unsettling feeling that chills you to the core as all around you is shrouded in mystery.

    Thank you, Zach, for finally making a template on how to make a game truly scary. Well, in theory, anyway... I haven't played a horror game in a good long time, so maybe one will finally scare me after such a long hiatus. Gotta build up those fear calluses! Great article, too!

    "Jesus Loves Me" - Binding of Isaac is still pretty unsettling

    Great article, I definately can relate to the religion one! Growing up catholic you're sort of bombarded with all these religious stories and dos and don'ts. Now whilst I don't quite believe in a lot of it now, I still wouldn't go near a ouija board or anything of that nature JUST incase I disturb something from the bowels of hell. It's also why movies like the exorcist and ones involving demonic possession scare me more than anything else.

    Right!? Haha yeah I threw that in because I too grew up Catholic. And seriously...I still can't do things like that stupid bathrom mirror "Bloody Mary" chant.
