A discussion of moral frameworks in horror games (compared to film) and the implications for such frameworks of interactivity and choice.
Added by: sirfragalot  
p.213   Talking of horror in film and game: "Sound also plays a crucial role in both media to evoke the emotional impact of horror, and is often linked to the operation of the moral occult. Many videogames deploy sound as a key sign of impending danger, designed to agitate a tingling sense in anticipation of the need to act... These aural cues ... help to create an increased level of expectation and play a significant role in the creation of atmosphere as well as in emotional and structural dynamics of the games."   Added by: sirfragalot
