The top five scariest games of all time

2 min read


It’s that time of the year again. Costume shops are sold out, your nostalgia has been reduced to a sexy memory on the wrong body and somebody is going to egg your house if you don;t hand over the candy. Yes, it’s that time-honoured tradition of Halloween, except it has gone global. And that’s awesome.

For kids, Halloween is an excuse to come dangerously close to a free hospital ride to the nearest stomach pump. For adults, it;s either about getting properly smashed while dressed as Yogi Bear or to get some good old-fashioned frights in.

And if you’re looking for a chill, we’ve got your back. As gamez jernalizts, we’ve seen every horror imaginable. We’ve witnessed the terror of an Etihad flight first-hand. We’ve smelt who dealt it. We’ve verbed the adjective. So when we talk scary, we know our stuff.

So here it is: The top five scariest video games of all time.  Consider yourselves warned.

Scared? Horrified? Petrified? Good, my work here is done then. And before I close my crypt for the year, always remember:

One, two, the D is coming for you

Three, four, better lock your door

Five, six, grab a bag of dicks

Seven, eight, you better stay awake

Nine, ten, I’m back again…

Also, watch out for Mickey. Utter bastard of a mascot.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
