Can games ever truly compete though with the better end of the horror market? Will a game ever really better the still-influential cinematography that ensures that 1979's original Halloween continues to sell on DVD?
Here's a list of 13 'atmospheric' horror games (from the excellent site bloody-disgusting.com) that might point to the answer...

The 13 Most Atmospheric Horror Games

For me, atmosphere is how the game looks, sounds, and feels. For example, if I'm walking down the rusted, broken halls of a long abandoned down mental institution with only my flashlight to illuminate the path in front of me as I instinctively jerk the beam of light toward what I could've swore was a shadow or the sound of footsteps - that's an experience I'm not going to forget any time soon. It's the atmosphere, or all the little details that sets the game apart from the rest and helps immerse you into the experience. So head past the break to see the 13 most atmospheric games I've ever had the pleasure of playing, and remember, these aren't in any particular order, so please don't freak out if your game is #5 while an obviously crap game made #3.
