Doom 3 one of the scariest video games ever made: I’m not much of a gamer, and I’m definately not much of a horror afficionado. I’ll leave this one for those who are.
What you see in this M-rated game is definitely NOT for children or the squeamish. The vivid three-dimensional graphics, a true step forward for computer games, allow for some extremely gross death scenes involving large quantities of blood and various human and monster guts. […]

SimCity is more my speed.
