Vampire Video Games You Never Knew Existed
As I’m sure some of you may have noticed, I am in uber gaming mode this month, which is why I bring you more vampire gaming goodness! I just came across a list of vampire video games that I had never heard of before, which means, there’s a good chance that you haven’t either. However, if you have, and I just fail, then make sure to leave a comment below letting us know if the game rocks or not.
This game is fairly old in the world of video games, I mean, it’s a DOS game after all. However, the plotline is just too ridiculous not to give the game a mention. Bloodnet is a cyberpunk gothic vampire story that follows Ransom Stark, a man hunting down the vampire Abraham Van Helsing. Stark must save not only humanity, but the cybernet as well. His quest would be easier if he hadn’t been bitten by Van Helsing, but luckily he is able to fight off the infection with the help of a computer grafted onto his brain stem. Ahaha!
Playable on the PS2 and Xbox, this game is much newer than the previous one. It’s a first shooter game that mixes western, horror and steampunk all in one. The story follows the adventures of Jericho Cross, an outlaw-turned-vampire, and his role in an ancient vampire-hunting order known as the Darkwatch. According to reviews the game wasn’t too bad and there was even a PS3 and 360 sequel in the makes, unfortunately it was canceled.
While I have never played this game and barely even remember it, I have seen pictures from it all over the net, but it wasn’t until recently that I knew those pictures belonged to Vampire Rain. Fail. Playable on the 360 and PS3, the game is about vampires known as nightwalkers, who are responsible for the disappearances of civilians all over the world. The American Information Bureau calls up a black ops special forces unit to take down the vamps.
Dark Angel: Vampire Apocalypse
In this PS2 RPG you play Anna, the Dark angel of retribution, and you have one year to defeat the armies of the Shadow Lord. According to reviews, this game is best known for offering over 400 hours of gameplay – that’s a whole lot of vampire killing.
This game is older than I am, coming out way back in 1983! In this game the player takes the role of the Mayor of Vladsdorf, a village on the bank of the River Ripple. The village is being threatened by a vampire that lives in a castle on the Red Cliffs, and it’s your job to put an end to him.
And those are a few vampire games you may or may not have ever heard of, luckily there are loads more, so stay tuned for more vampire gaming awesomeness.
