30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 3

Day 3: A game that is underrated - Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem

I've got a lot of great memories from time spent playing video games with friends.  It goes without saying that this game conjures the best of those memories.  Not only because I spent the majority of my time playing through it with one of my best friends - but because at times, it literally took both of us working and thinking together (in a single player game) to make it to the next area.

You play through the game as a college student exploring her grandfather's mansion - but what unfolds after the initial story is set is anything but typical.  You traverse the story as one of twelve characters, playing through multiple time periods.  The story flows beautifully, and the difficulty is on-par with what most would expect from a puzzle/survival/horror game with a big budget - this game delivers it all: an epic engaging story line with top-notch navigation and puzzle-solving capabilities.

Initially available on the game cube - I highly recommend this to anyone who still has one laying around.  I absolutely guarantee you that it won't disappoint.
