GAME OVER – The History of Survival Horror Video Games



Life is not always a world of wine and roses. In fact, it can flat out suck sometimes. Dead end job? Cheating spouse? Life threatening medical diagnosis? No matter what problems you face, you know that there is a way to escape for awhile…Entertainment! Film, television, books, all are used to retreat from the real world for a time. But no form of escapism is more interactive than video games. With the ability to transport us into far off worlds and drop us into our darkest nightmares, video games give us the ability to navigate our own, sometimes twisted, destiny without fear of reproductions or feelings of guilt. And horror video games give us so much more. Grab hold of your sawed off shotgun, don your blessed armor of power and prepare to face your demons…it’s time for 2GuysTalkingHorror!
