The dawn of the 21st century saw the birth of one of video game’s most terrifying entries into the realm Horror games, SIREN. Developed by Takafumi Fujisawa and Silent Hill crew; Keiichiro Toyama, Naoko Sato, and Isao Takahashi, SIREN accomplished its goal. It’s goal was a simple one, to scare the pants off anyone, regardless of race, culture or creed. SIREN is successful because it invokes hopelessness, pitting the player against friend and family turned foe.
