This is not the first, and it probably won’t be the last time a website puts together their own Top Ten list of the scariest videogames of all time. But let’s face it, we love Top Tens, especially to see where our favourite games rank in the eyes of those we trust to tell us about these things. Whether you like to agree or submit your a protest all in caps about the omission of your peculiar favourite is all part of the fun. This time, Joystick Division has posted their own Scariest Games of All Time Top Ten, check it out here.
Personally I agree with most of these choices, except their number 1: The Gamecube remake of Resident Evil. I’ve never actually found Resident Evil to be scary, and I’ve always thought of it more like a sci-fi game, a dark sci-fi game. But maybe I’m just desensitised after so many years of playing scary games. Hell, I don’t regard Bioshock as having any horror elements at all, but some people I know find it terrifying. Is it actually scary, or are my senses just dulled?
