Not to be confused with Dante from the video game franchise Devil May Cry, Dante’s Inferno is a video game that is literally based on Italian poet Dante Alighieri’s (1265–1321) vision of Hell. As the poet wrote, “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here!”

This survival horror game involves a section of the story that is called “Hell Descent.” (As disturbing as the Silent Hill games are, I couldn't find a screenshot that shouted #DevilReference...although there is no lack of dark imagery!)

This classic top-down dungeon trawler, currently on its third iteration, was chosen primarily because its title is an obvious #DevilReference.
