Every gamer has a somewhat shameful backlog — mine just happens to be 10x worse than everyone else’s.

In an effort to rid myself of game-hoarding, backlog-loving shame, I’ve taken to my consoles to put my true gaming spirit to the test in a new segment I like to call: Better Late than Never. With each installment, I’ll invite you along with me as I journey into unknown territory. Sometimes I’ll provide insightful commentary, other times I’ll just scream at you until it’s over.

In this instance, I may or may not be screaming at you. Ladies and gentleman — Emily plays Dead Space!

Now that it’s over, I think I really enjoyed the game. All that screaming? Screams of blissful joy. There’s nothing better than spending your night unwillingly stumbling through a ship with thousands of slaughtered crew members.

Dead Space is a survival horror game developed by EA Redwood Shores — now Visceral Games — that released in 2008. I know, I know — the game is 6 years old and I’m just now getting around to playing it. But who can blame me? A name with ‘dead’ in the title doesn’t exactly conjure up happy thoughts. I’ll give Dead Space a solid 3 1/2 clenched buttonholes, which mean this game is a must for any and all fans of the horror genre. I’m pretty happy it’s the first game I can cross off my list… and I only hope it’s the last horror game I’ll have to play for another 6 years.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some crying to do.
