The horror genre has seen a gradual increase in games that offer some sort of multiplayer component this past year. That probably sounds like a bad thing, since it often means bad things for the player who would prefer a polished single-player campaign over a tacked on multiplayer. For 2013, it was actually a good thing.
I noticed a trend as I was sifting through last year’s offering, and that was a noticeable jump in titles that brought with them thoughtfully crafted multiplayer modes, rather than hastily slapped together features that had the sole purpose of adding one more thing to the list of features on the back of the box.
That’s a good sign. Now let’s thank these developers by voting on their games!
