Flamebait Friday Debate – The Scariest Game You Have Ever Played

2 min read


As many of our avid readers know, I have garnered a reputation of being a super pink-underpants wearing pansy for not being able to finish Dead Space. Until I do finish it, I will have to happily live with that title, and that’s fair enough.

I don’t usually have a massive problem with scary games, I actually really love them (Dead Space just hits a nerve I didn’t even know I had) and can really think back to some scary or tense moments in games like Resident Evil 2 and Undying as some of my most favorite gaming moments of all time.

I am currently playing through Alan Wake and have completely immersed myself in the tense and menacing atmosphere that the game brings and in honour of it’s local release today, I have highlighted this fantastic genre for our debate.

So it’s up to you to share your opinion and campfire ghost stories. What’s the scariest game you have ever played, and why?
