Games That Will Make You Pee Your Pants
It’s that time of year again when kids dress up in costumes to get candy and college students dress up in costumes to get drunk: Halloween! For those of us who don’t want to do any of that “fun” stuff, why not lower the blinds, turn off the lights, and play some video games this Halloween? Here’s my list of horrifying games that will make you pee your pants!
The ultimate zombie apocalypse survival simulator gets even scarier with the sequel. Alone or with friends, Left 4 Dead 2 continually assaults you with disgusting hordes of the living dead whose sole aim is to turn you over to the zombie masses. New breeds of zombie can pop out of any corner, grab your face, puke skin-melting acid from great distances, and pummel you until you’re a bloody pulp on the floor. Not even clowns are safe from the zombie virus. A guitar and a baseball bat never seemed more appropriate in a game.
If you have seen any of the Alien movies, then you know what Dead Space is all about. One of a few surviving members of a now derelict space station, you alone must eliminate waves of zombie alien crewmembers as they literally try to tear you in half. Seriously, Dead Space is gory. Depending on how you’re killed, your onscreen avatar will lose his limbs, have his head decapitated, be crushed into a bloody pulp, be burned to death, and even more that I’m too scared to write about. Remember, no one can hear you scream in space... especially if your head is ripped off.
Yeah, the repetitive puzzles and inane combat are scary enough in a bad way, but Saw II’s believable voice acting and moody music set the tone for a scary game based on the popular horror flick. If you’re a fan of the movie series, prepare to enjoy more of Jigsaw’s onslaught in the comfort of your mancave with Saw II.
Are you sick of the sudden flood of video games about zombies and vampires and want something more original? Well, Cursed Mountain may play like your typical Resident Evil game, but the story is far from a clichéd zombie romp through castles and high-tech elevators that lead to military bases. Instead, you’re forced to scale an extremely tall (and cursed) mountain while defeating Tibetan ghosts that want nothing more than to eat you. Now that’s scary and unique!
