Horror Games Win Several Gaming Awards


With the end of the year fast approching, now is the time we get lots of "best of" lists for movies, games, music....etc.  It was a great year for horror videogamers as many big titles came out these year to feed the need for scares and bloodshed.  This is a year where we got suc horror titles as Gears of War 2, Resistance 2, Silent Hill: Homecoming, Dead Space, Fallout 3, Left 4 Dead, and Alone in the Dark.  It was a good crop of games and I think will breathe new life into horror games over the next year or two.

At Spike TV's 2008 Video Game Awards, several horror titles brought home awards amonst strong competition from many other mainsteam games.  While its no surprise that Grand Theft Auto was the big winner of the night, Gears of War 2 brought home the Best Shooter and Best Xbox 360 game awards.  Fallout 3 brought home the Best RPG award and Left 4 Dead won awards for Best Multiplayer Game and Best PC Game. 

Since it was such a great award winning year for horror games, it is going to be difficult to top in 2009.  Luckily with games like Resident Evil 5, Onechanbara™: Bikini Zombie Slayers, I Am Alive, Madworld, and Rage it could at least be a decent follow-up to such a good year for horror games.
