Dead Space PC
When the game came out it was a breath of fresh air for survival horror fans. It more or less took the good parts of older games like Silent Hill, Resident Evil, and Fatal Frame, and mashed them together into one brilliant, cohesive monster that served as a spiritual successor to System Shock, but played like an action horror shooter. M_DeadSpace Dead Space admittedly has one of the single best settings for a horror game. In space, no one can hear you scream. Right? Wasn't that the tagline of Alien? The game felt like it was heavily inspired by Event Horizon, among other sci-fi films. Granted, of course, Event Horizon was less a story of science fiction and more just straight "horror". Sam Neill, the man who created the warp drive (whatever it's called), eventually loses his grip on sanity and succumbs to the demonic possession of the ship, killing everyone along...
