Horror in video games is incredibly hard to pull off. At this point, the scares are rote and uninteresting. There’s a hallway with a flashing light, I bet some scary lady will blink right in front of me for a brief second. What I found so thrilling about Nightmare House 2 was how most of those preconceived notions of video game horror were basically thrown out the window. Nightmare House 2 is not as scary as Slender, but it is tense and has some of my favorite jump scares.
