  1. I was replaying CALL OF CTHULHU: DARK CORNERS OF THE EARTH for Halloween, and one of my friends was extremely freaked out by the friendly inhabitants of Innsmouth. The town’s police chief is one of the creepiest video game characters ever 🙂 I highly recommend these games also; EVIL WITHIN for the PS4 and XboxOne, and ALONE IN THE DARK 4 for the PS3 and Xbox360. AITD4 is unique in it’s use of fire both as a weapon and as a way to solve puzzles. Oh, and did I mention that the lead villian is a necromancer?
