What If The Horror Genre Never Existed?

I’m about to tell you a tale so twisted, so horrifying, that it isn’t for the squeamish or the weak of heart. Now switch off the lights, lock the door, and get real close to your computer screen.

Growing up I first fell in love with gaming thanks to Nintendo. While not my first experience with gaming, it was the first time I can say I knew this was something I would always want to do.  I remember a friend of my brothers bringing over the original NES and playing the original Mario and some other games.  Before that I had only played on old PC’s, Intellivision’s, and various Atari systems that barely worked.  The Nintendo put them all to shame; intense graphics, sound, easy of use and complex but simple controls.  Since then, I’ve owned nearly every system and played every genre I can, whittling it down to genres I follow very closely.  Nintendo was always in the forefront of this “hobby” (word comfortably interchangeable with addiction.), holding a special place in my heart, as I’m sure many others do as well.  And like many of you, probably followed them into their future endeavors with the SNES, N64, and other systems. Even the disappointing ones like the Virtual Boy and Gamecube.  Whether they were Nintendo’s fault or the industry at the time is here nor there.
