2. Dead Space 2

Release Date: Jan. 25
Platforms: 360/PC/PS3

We went into Dead Space 2 hoping it would be less scary than the original. It was on a space station, which meant we’d have bigger spaces to explore, which would undercut the claustrophobic atmosphere. There was the new zero gravity mechanics, which would probably lend itself to more action-oriented gaming. But no, we were wrong. Dead Space 2 scared the pants off us, even more than the original. We should probably be grateful, but we still have nightmares.
