The 20 cult video games you need to play before you die

6 of 21

American McGee's Alice

American McGee's Alice is a third-person horror action by Rogue Entertainment and EA for PC.

The game is an unofficial sequel to Lewis Carroll's Alice novels. Set years after Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, it is dark and Alice is maniacal. After witnessing the death of her family in a blaze, Alice suffers from survivor's guilt and is sent to the Rutledge Asylum when she begins losing her grasp on reality. Her only possession... her stuffed rabbit.

Why you must play

It's a steampunk, Gothic horror with no signs of Disney. A dark, deliciously morbid storyline with an amazing soundtrack. The level design and artwork are so elaborate, you will find yourself mesmerized. I cannot tell you how gorgeous it is. The characters are twisted and The Cheshire Cat delivers some of the most memorable lines to date.

"We're all mad here." - The Cheshire Cat

There is currently a petition on Change.org requesting that EA make another Alice game.

    A good list of games, however I wouldn't say Portal, Limbo or Amnesia are cult. Cult is generally something which wasn't loved at the time, but had some die hard fans. After some time all people love it (well a lot of people). Think Labyrinth or The Crow.
