Halloween. A time for tricks, scares, and costumes. A time to exploit the emotion that grips many of us when it rears its ugly head: Fear. In videogames, there are unnerving things that we aren’t really ready for when they happen, or that make us jump out when they happen. In this list, I’ll be showcasing things in videogames that just scare the crap outta me. Did it make me jump? Was there a moment of tension? Or was there a place that I wanted to leave quickly? Hit the jump, and lets explore my Top 10 Moments in Videogames That Scared The Crap Outta Me.
For eight days we covered the topic of Halloween. The music we listened to ranged from dark, to mellow, to unnerving. We took a breather in Resident Evil. Dreaded the Ishimura in Dead Space. We walked the haunted halls of Luigi’s Mansion. We braced for hell in Silent Hill 3. We feared the Alchemy Lab in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. We feared pianos in Super Mario 64. We inquired about the life of Boos in Super Mario Galaxy. And finally we ended where we began with another Resident Evil composition.
If you want to see the music as it goes up (and not wait every Saturday for these wrap-ups), remember to go to our Tumblr page and follow it. Music for Night-Time Listenings goes up every weekday at 10PM.
