SOMA (Video Game Review)
It’s no exaggeration to say that Frictional Games redefined the Survival Horror genre. Thanks to both its thick atmosphere and deadly foes, Amnesia: The Dark Descent spearheaded the revolution still going on today, with its concepts present in indie and AAA releases alike. After handing over Amnesia to The Chinese Room, Frictional have shifted their focus from fantasy to full blown science fiction. The result is an astounding masterpiece, and the game all future horror releases should be measured against.
