Personally, I would say no. While there is a vast array of horror games out
there, most of them suck. I am *starved* for a really, really GOOD
horror-themed game. I don't think I'm alone in this. I would note, however,
that good horror is hard in *any* setting... let alone a nonlinear and/or
freely explored setting.
