Creepy dead girls have also shown up in a few video games, but none have so closely hewn to “J-horror” tropes as the survival horror game 'The Calling.'

There is no real reason not to stop playing the puzzle game Create at any time I like. There’s no gripping story pushing me forward. There are no big boss battles. Once I solve a puzzle, there is nothing compelling me to start a new one. And yet, hour after hour I find myself moving from one puzzle to the next. As day slips into night I think, “I’ll just solve this one and then stop,” followed by, “I might as well just see what the next one is like.” The game is as addictive as potato chips.
