587th played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Various Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I can’t say I’ve enjoyed the previous Resident Evil games much. There were some okay adventure elements and such, but the controls were terrible and shooting difficult. Partially it’s said this was meant to create horror, […]

573nd played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Valve Corporation Publisher: Valve Corporation We’ve played Left 4 Dead a few years ago. We quite enjoyed it then, and it feels like zombie media still haven’t gone out of fashion. The sequel creates new stories in a […]

524th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Tecmo Publisher: Tecmo The Fatal Frame series is one we’ve been avoiding for a bit. Not because of our dislike of survival horror games – although Resident Evil has certainly put us off, something like Silent Hill was great to […]

504th played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Visceral Games Publisher: Electronic Arts I remember enjoying Dead Space. It’s not a favourite, the genres the game consists of made sure of that, but it managed to strike the right balance of scares, tension and proper action. With […]

422nd played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami The days are getting longer again and that means that there’s enough light to play more survival horror games – something that would probably fit in the dark, but not when you’re feeling jumpy. Silent Hill started its […]

305th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Various Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom The Resident Evil series is one that keeps haunting us. Not in the spooky scary sense, but in the sense of a series that has several entries in the list, while we’re not the most keen to play […]

256th played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Xbox 360/Playstation 3/PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: EA Redwood Shores Publisher: Electronic Arts Sometimes you encounter a gem solely by chance. I originally obtained Dead Space before we started this blog, mostly on a whim. It was cheap, it looked interesting and different, and […]
