Videogames make better horror experiences than movies


I’d go further and say that, of late, video games have made better experiences than movies, full stop. But that’s doubly true in the case of horror, since games can (and will) throw as much scariness at you as possible, as well as giving you an entire environment of spooky atmospherics instead of pre-determined “shock” moments. The author of this Wired article cites Bioshock, which I’ve been playing, and I can personally attest to the great horror quotient in the game.
