Horror defined
18 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

First of all, let me say that I've always been a hardcore Resident Evil gamer. From the first thrilling game in that creepy house on PSX in the mid-90's - too the latest Resident Evil 4; Resident Evil has represented that thrilling, creepy feeling I never seem to get from any Horror movie. But when I started playing Silent Hill 2 - all of that changed. This is, by far, the most terrifying, sick and creepy thing I have ever experienced. I'm 21 years old, and I don't dare playing it alone... This is truly the bible of the Horror genre, or; Horror defined.

I dare you too play it alone with surround, I dare you...
