Track: Consumite Furore | Album: Phantasmagoria Soundtrack | Artist: Mark Seibert
Nothing says "get hype" like this trailer for Phantasmagoria: A Puzzle of Flesh, a seemingly endless quick-cut montage of deliciously cheesy FMV acting with no context or sense of narrative or character.
You gotta love horror games with mysterious, haunted mansions. They work so well. You enter the estate, or wake up in a calm part of it, only to find hordes of traps, the undead and a bevy of haunted horrors waiting to overwhelm you.
The evolution of graphics and physics engines (just think about ragdoll physics) in video games introduced a whole new level of violence and blood. Despite the continuous debates, like it or not, this trend won't fade away anytime soon.
Don't ask me why I wound up googling this cutscene from Phantasmagoria over the weekend, but I did, and I watched it, and good lord. It's even worse than I remembered!
