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.'

Tony Hawk: Shred
For me, Tony Hawk has always been about crashing through plate glass windows. The early Tony Hawk skateboarding games were fanciful concoctions in which the extreme sports star would skate through fragile windows and collapsing floors. Tony Hawk: Shred reminds me of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 and 4, letting players crash onto collapsible roofs, bring floods and break lots and lots of plate glass.

DJ Hero 2 - Game Review
While Activision’s 'Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock tried to lure players in with an elaborate story, their other new rhythm game, 'DJ Hero 2,' takes the opposite approach. Relentlessly anti-story, the game portrays the life of a DJ as one in which you go to clubs, wave at the audience in exactly the same way every time and then mash up a bunch of songs. 'DJ Hero 2' refuses to let story get in the way of gameplay.
