Frighteneering
April 29th 2013:
The first comic of many pitting video games against board games.

I got the chills the first time I played Betrayal at House on the Hill. I got paranoid the first time I played Last Night on Earth. I got creeped out in many D&D campaign settings. But nothing really comes close to the fear factor in Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Video Games certainly have the edge when it comes to horror, and not just graphically. I got maybe 10 minutes into Descent before I put it down. Nope nope nope NOPE nope nope nope Nope! It not impossible for a tabletop game to bring that level of horror to an audience, I just haven't experianced it yet. The Horror RPG Dread, looks like a possible ringer for a Board Game answer to amnesia, if I get the chance to play it, I'll let you know.
Sincerely
