Fangoria, the magazine that has been servicing horror fans the world over for over 30 years, has never had a video game on its cover. Until now.

Yes, it's hard to believe that for all the Resident Evils and Silent Hills and even Alone in the Darks of the world, no game has ever been horrific enough - or at least gory enough - to warrant a shot on the cover.

The game breaking this drought will be Namco Bandai's upcoming Splatterhouse remake, and while it may not look to be the greatest game of 2010, this piece by comics artist Dave Wilkins does a great job of covering the game's two key draws: biceps and blood.

Wow. I've subscribed to Fangoria since 1989 and never even noticed that 'til you brought it up. I've noticed the magazine slowly decline in quality year after year as prices go up and up and up. I've noticed that I keep renewing even though all I ever do is bitch about the magazine's ever declining quality. But I never noticed the lack of video games on the cover. Sorta seems a natural fit. There's a LOT of horror and gore in the video game world. More than in the wonderful world of cinema at the moment.
