I do recall playing this long ago at a fun park, so I got re-introduced to the original Sega game again while at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, NC. The game was made by Sega in the same year as Resident Evil by Capcom.
While both games are quite different, they both are one of the first ones to make a scary game where you fight zombies.
Though House of the Dead isn’t too scary, it’s also not very fun anymore. It’s aged quite a bit. I didn’t care to even get halfway through before I got bored of it.
