Lately I’ve been playing Dead Space (Yes the first one. Yes I know I’m late to the party) and it’s one of the most terrifying experiences I’ve been through. Movies can’t even come close to the type of fear a game can deliver. No matter the movie we’re always looking through a glass window watching what’s happening to someone else. But in a game we are that someone else. A good game has the ability to make you forget where you are and enter a place of fantasy where you are the hero, you make the choices and you suffer the consequences. Constantly finding yourself lacking ammo and facing death you’ll have trouble keeping your calm. For those reasons playing an horror game is a scary ordeal.

Yes… yes it is…

A game that uses its sound and environment to full effect can make me jump off the chair like a little girl. Dead Space is one of those. Playing it with lights off and headphones on will get your heart racing.

The game has spawned two animated movies, a comic, a book, 4 games in the series and there’s rumors of an eventual live action movie. If nothing else that will tell you that the world of Dead Space is profitable. If like me you haven’t played Dead Space yet then do it now.

If you still have any doubts I’ll leave a compilation of the main characters different death scenes in the first game only. I love the one where they take of his head and then take control of the body…
