Eternal Darkness: Sanity\'s Requiem
Developer: Silicon Knights
rnEternal Darkness spun a moody survival horror yarn that stretched back over centuries. Players controlled different characters whose sanity ebbed as they came face-to-face with eldritch horrors straight out of a Lovecraft story, leading to in-game and meta effects like the character's limbs falling off and the player's TV volume adjusting itself. A team of developers attempted to craft a spiritual sequel and fund it through Kickstarter, but it petered out. While its insanity effects might seem hokey, Eternal Darkness sets a chilling mood that can hold weight with the best Silent Hill and Resident Evil have to offer.
