Question of the Week: Your scariest gaming experience ever

2 min read


Greetings boys and girls and welcome back to another horrible Monday at work, another week of office drudgery and indeed another week of gaming.

To make Mondays seem a little brighter for everyone I have decided to make Monday the official host of our new Question of the Week section.

What this is is pretty simple. We ask a question every week, usually involving gaming experiences and fun stuff. There will be nothing serious here to dampen your day so get ready to share your campfire stories. This section relies on you our readers to let give us your answers and opinions, tell us your stories and open up topics for discussion.

If you are one of those people who have always been too shy to comment, or just purely not bothered, now is the time to speak up and tell us of your experience because to sweeten the deal and kick off the new section I have organised some prizes. We have very recently had a “comment spam” competition and we just happen to have an extra copy of Bioshock (PC) and DMC4 (Xbox 360) lying around which I have organised as prizes for this week. We will pick the two best, funniest or interesting stories and the winners will be announced next week (maybe sooner).

This weeks question is of course: What has been your scariest gaming experience ever?

I myself have been the victim of many a pant-wetting experience, from playing Friday the 13th on my 8-bit when I was but a child to having the living daylights scared out of me recently in Condemned 2. What experience have you had that has left an imprint on your gaming life and of indeed, your underpants. The type that had you going outside for ten minutes just to catch your breath again.

[Just a quick note. To avoid spoilers for other gamers, I suggest that you begin your comment with the title of the game first so that if someone hasn’t played it or finished it yet they can just skip to the next one.]

If you have any questions that you want to suggest for our question of the week feel free to email me at [email protected].
