Did anyone else regularly get scared by Nintendo 64 games?

The Nintendo 64 wasn't my favorite console. Even on a good day, it doesn't make my top five. And many of its best games don't hold up super well if you're running them on the original hardware. But, all that said, the N64 does warrant a spe...

Dark water and the things below give me the shivers

If we're all confessing our gaming-related fears, I might as well share mine. I can't stand the water. More specifically, I can't stand what lives under the water. If there is ever a section of a game that will make me want to stop playing,...

I think videogames made me hate funhouses

I don't like funhouses, although, I suppose I haven't given them a fair shake. I've never been inside one, but I'm pretty certain that makes no difference. You see, videogames trained me at a very young age to hate funhouses. I'm sure that ...

Earthworm Jim 2 scares me to this day

Leading up to Halloween, I've been wanting to write about horror games because that's what you do in October, right? I still might; I'm playing the oft-recommended Fatal Frame II for the first time now and am planning to revisit Condemned. ...
