Lone Survivor: The Director
I really do wish there were more games like Lone Survivor. Perhaps part of that has to do with the absence of Silent Hill. Yes Lone Survivor for those of you who have not played it is basically a 2d Silent Hill. The premise and design in general are very similar and probably inspired by the Silent Hill franchise. That is actually rather commendable. Some might even say a feat if you consider the whole scope of horror games.
I personally feel a lot of horror games try to mimic what Silent Hill did in some capacity and most fail miserably. As if a spoopy location, a few jump scares, some mildly grotesque monsters, a looping hallway, and some supernatural elements are all you need to make horror. It’s like taking the ingredients for a stew and just throwing them together in a cardboard box to make said stew. It just doesn’t work.
Lone Survivor on the other hand has direction and purpose to go along with its other elements. It understands what it takes to make a good Psychological horror game. It’s one of those games where you question if what transpired is real or not. If it is then the world is in awful shape. If it isn’t you may have done some terrible things. It could even be both. Honestly there is a fair bit of room for you to come to your own conclusion. I haven’t found there to be any definitive cannon ending so it’s up to you to decide.
So few games sucesfully pull off what Lone Survivor and Silent Hill do. Maybe one day we'll get another but until then I'll make due with what we have.
