You might think Resident Evil was the first survival horror game but you would be wrong. Fourteen years earlier in 1982, Haunted House was released for the Atari 2600. It didn’t have the relatively large gaming world or 3D graphics of games like Resident Evil but it did have some unique play mechanics. You had to light a match to see what was around you and this only lasted a few seconds. If a monster entered the room, the match would blow out.

Above is the label / box artwork which like most Atari 2600 games, does not dissapoint.
