All was not lost though, and in 2008 EA and Visceral Games released one of the scariest videogames ever made, they called it Dead Space. Dead Space was a genuinely terrifying third person shooter which placed you in the curb-stomping shoes of Isaac Clarke, an engineer who is sent with his team to investigate a distress signal.
