The Jimquisition: The Ugly Secret of Horror Games

It's Halloween, the day that St. Spooky was born for our sins. On this haunted occasion, I discuss what truly makes a horror game scary and decide that the worse a game looks, the better it is at frightening you.

With less impressive graphics, developers need to be a lot more inventive and work harder to create a creepy atmosphere. More importantly, low budgets and low-end visuals can create something that is both believable and thoroughly alien all at once. 

The Jimquisition explains how!
