[FEAR AWARDS] What Game From 2012 Most Deserves An Honorable Mention In Horror?


It’s that time of the year again, folks! I hope you aren’t too tired from all the egg nogging, snowman crafting, slay bell jingling, and sloppy mistletoe kissing you undoubtedly put yourself through last month, because we have some voting to do. For the unfamiliar, the FEAR Awards is something we started here at Bloody Disgusting back in 2009 when we realized there are a ton of best and worst games lists and awards, but none that gave much attention to the horror genre. We decided to create this so we could celebrate the many horror (and horror adjacent) games that release every year.

This year we’re doing things a little differently. Every day we’re going to post a category and a batch of nominees for you to vote on, then when the votes are tallied we’ll reveal the results. Today we’re all about what game most deserves an Honorable Mention in Horror — vote after the break!

Greatest Gore | Best Arsenal | Best HD Remaster/Port | Best Zombies | Most Original
Best In Bite-Sized Horror | Honorable Mention in Horror | Best Multiplayer | Best Indie | Scariest Game
Most Disappointing | Best New IP | Most Anticipated | Where The F**K Is It? | Game of the Year

    I do not envy you Adam… Writing articles about Survival Horror games of 2012 can not be easy, what was there, maybe 2 or 3 released?

    Your job will be easier next year.

      Last year wasn’t that bad! But yes, 2013 looks WAY better.

    Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition came out in 2012 and I’m being completely serious when I say it deserves an Honorable Mention in the Horror category. If you know anybody who plays the game, ask them about that horrible feeling that washes over them when they hear the creepers moan and death sizzle. You may laugh, but its actually pretty scary if you’re not ready for it.

      I totally agree. The only reason it’s not on this list is because to me, it is a horror game. Between the focus on survival, resource management, exploration, and the monsters, — Minecraft is one of the best horror games of the year.

    Dear Esther is so good! Glad it got a mention.
