Poll: What's Your Opinion on Horror Games?

By Mark Delaney, 3 months ago
Happy Friday TA! Last week's poll gathered votes on the November TA Playlist game. Those results go live soon, but the poll is still open for a few more hours, so get in your vote if you haven't yet.


This week, we're continuing our look at the horror genre as we do every October. Specifically, we're asking a rather simple question we haven't asked before: what do you think of horror games? Do they terrifying you as intended but you love them for that reason? Maybe you find them too nauseating that you have to avoid them entirely? Maybe they don't affect you but you play them nonetheless, just as you would any game. Sound off in this week's site poll!
