Note: I played this on PS3, I’ve heard the XBOX 360 copy is still messed up with bugs.

Sure, as gamers, we’ve been to some horrifying places. Raccoon City, Rapture, USG Ishimura, and even Brennenburg Castle. While they are all psychologically damaging in their own way, nothing compares to a place that is surrounded in fog.
