Spike's Video Game Awards lauds paranormal games

Last Friday's SpikeTV Video Game Awards proved paranormal is king in the virtual world as well. In fact, "Game of the Year" was Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: The Game, which also picked up awards for "Best Adapted Video Game" and "Best Downloadable Game." Other notable awards went to Arkane Studio’s, Dishonored for "Best Action Adventure Game" and Halo 4 for "Best Xbox 360 Game."

That’s great, but what’s in store for 2013 when it comes to video games that fit into the paranormal realm? Several trailers debuted at the awards show, including one for Dark Souls II, a highly anticipated game that looks like Game of Thrones on steroids. There is no release date but the game will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms.

Another anticipated game is The Last of Us which takes place in a plague-ridden Earth where a man and his 14-year-old companion fight for against infected, zombie-like creatures and hostile bands of humans. It will be released for PlayStation 3 on May 7 2013.
