Paage 70: Devil Games!

In this penultimate post about the small details tucked into Nicholas Young’s room, we find even more #DevilReferences in his choice of video games:

Dante’s Inferno
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!”

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
If you play this game in single-player career mode and make it through all of the songs and all of the other bosses, then the last boss battle is playing Lou (i.e. Lou-cifer) for your soul with the notoriously difficult song, “The Devil Went down to Georgia.”

Silent Hill: Homecoming
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.
