Fatal Frame
aka Zero, Project Zero

Fatal Frame is well known in Survival Horror circles; outside them, not so much. It's known as Zero in Japan, and Project Zero outside North America for the most part. In every single game, the protagonist is stuck in some haunted place, with ghosts all around and their only weapon a camera. A very special camera, called the Camera Obscura. I write for I-IV, including the Deep Crimson Butterfly (Project Zero 2 Wii) remake.

Note: I tend to use III as a catch-all for stuff that's multi-game, due to the nature of game III.
