It's unlikely we'll ever seen huge studios take on the task of making full-on horror games again, atleast not with the development teams the size of say those responsible for making Fallout 3 or Fear or Half-life 2; but even if we don't see those sorts of truly terrifying games coming out of the big studios anymore is there any hope for the future?
Well games like Amnesia: Dark Descent
and Project Zomboid
do give me hope for the future – the games industry certainly isn't all explosions and boobies but big developers' appetites for making full-on horror games have reduced – probably because they feel that a more horror-driven title with a fairly weak protagonist where say you're sat in cupboards most of the time hiding, won't sell the millions they need to ship to recoup their costs.
Here's hoping they're wrong.
