Five (5) Great Horror Games With Bad Graphics

The team over at (and has put together a very engaging piece on their site (and on YouTube) as to why some games are scarier than others. We’re not talking Eternal-Darkness-Silent-Hill-Resident-Evil-HD-graphics-scary either as this video shows, and breaks down, games that have RPG Maker & Half Life source visuals but still deliver a psychological and unnerving experience.

This video took me by surprise as I only knew of ONE of these five games. I must be slipping in my old age, but it makes me thankful for people like the team over at for keeping us on our toes.
