Fatal Frame and next-gen update

This game is obsessed with the trauma of past events, eventually affecting the present. The game offers three protagonists and an event that spans three different time periods. This game has a pretty complicated story but maintains all three timelines remarkably well. For some fans, the gameplay can be very dark and extremely disturbing, as it is full of murders, witchcraft, and ritualistic drowning.

Some locations in the game are so scary that it will make fans uneasy passing through them. The game has some delightful sound and light design in order to provide the best horror experience to the players. The game is full of scary and frightening moments; some of the best horror moments come from spotting non-aggressive ghosts wandering around the mountain.
