I'm a sucker for found footage films. Ever since The Blair Witch Project wrecked an entire summer for me, the genre has been my go-to source for quick'n easy jump scares. Now, an editor has taken a playthrough of P.T., the first person horror game/Silent Hills teaser, and transformed it into a horror flick I'd "happily" watch.
The first half is better than the second half, sure, but the concept is pretty great.
A huge reason Outlast was one of my favorite horror games from the past few years is because it integrated the found footage conceit right into the gameplay. (For the record, if you've never played Outlast, the DLC is much, much better than the original game.) Though found footage has become a tired trope within film, it's still fresh ground for games. I'd take a few more!
