history of horror video games

Are you rady to re-live a brief history of horror video games in the next 3 minutes or so? Because young film-maker Anthony Carpendale is looking for some funds on Kickstarter, in order to complete his project of a full-lenght documentary on horror video games Playing With Fear. So, the video you’re going to watch is some sort of trailer for his campaign, but still pretty impressive! Enjoy!
