Most readers should know by now that I'm not strictly a horror gamer and reviewer. I think that if I were to stick to that very narrow niche then I would be really stunting my gaming experience. I like to include other games that aren't just Amnesia; I like to play games that are equally as thrilling but may not be horror in the strictest sense. Lords of the Fallen looks to be a thrilling game of monster bashing and adventure seeking that most wouldn't consider horror, but I would really like to include in my list.

Lords of the Fallen's trailer is a gripping thriller. Of all the ones I've been watching, this one really had me invested in such a short few minutes. Our “hero” (formally a convicted criminal) is seen wielding a great hammer against mighty beasts in order to gain the attention of a long-ago defeated god; to show his strength and the threat he brings. There have been some concerns with it looking too similar to Dark Souls, but with an October release date I think I know what I'll be doing during the upcoming fall.
