Games and the making of ominous architecture (http://www.popmatters.com/pm/post/157108-ominous-architecture/): ‚??Regardless of what monstrosities we face, digital environments must capture our attention and establish a grim atmosphere.

From Castle Wolfenstein to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, the stonework, mildew ridden basements, dark hallways, and cobwebbed attics of gothic mansions remain established horror locales. Many games, including the two above, use their environments remarkably well. Regardless, the frequency of candlelit masonry tests my patience.‚??
