Continuing in the Halloween spirit we’re rehashing another old, but seasonally appropriate post: Video games have an opportunity to provide us with horror in ways that television and film can not. A video game puts us in control. We decide our fate and we’re the ones that need to figure out how to escape a deadly nightmare. Sometimes control is good and sometimes it’s terrifying to literally have the power of life and death in these game worlds. On these twisted journeys through nightmares we will find monsters and villains of course, but some leave more of an impression than others. That in mind we have compiled this list. For one reason or another, I believe that these characters have something to offer a true horror fan, even if sometimes you have to dig deep to see it. After all, horror is nothing without imagination.
