Hallelujah, it's Good Friday! In keeping with the theme of this wonderous four day weekend, this episode of MisanthroPlay discusses video game depictions of the hottest of afterlife destinations. From the heavy metal-tinged inferno of Doom to the filthy vermin-filled pits of Yokai Dochuuki, we examine the medium's wide variety of hellscapes and how they choose to simulate endless torment. When you shuffle off this mortal coil, will you wander through an extradimensional building with no exit in Corpse Party, or will you face endless hordes of chittering skulls and insects in Devil Daggers? Perhaps you'll end up in a Living Hell of your own design, like poor ol' James of Silent Hill 2? Spin the wheel and decide your fate!
