RPS Plays… The Scariest Games Of All Time

By Nathan Grayson on November 1st, 2013 at 12:00 am.

Halloween weekend is upon is, and that can only mean one thing: it is time for unrelenting spookiness. No matter where you go, you can’t escape it. Bats will shriek, pumpkins will leer, and the sky will basically be made of lightning. Also, everyone you know will try to kill you. By giving you too much candy, which will ultimately result in diabetes if you give in to peer pressure and partake of hedonistic holiday sugar consumption. So naturally, as a public service (of sorts), RPS must do its part. Thus, I have elected to play three of the scariest games of all time in rapid succession, testing the limits of my psyche and intestinal fortitude for your amusement. What lies ahead? Push on the implausibly creaky door and go below for a video of gaming’s darkest, dankest, murderer-iest basements.

    Woah. RPS is branching out into Let’s Play.

    scaring eyes tag

    I kinda hoped they’d have played Harvester. Now that’s a “wacky” horror title.

  6. golem09 says:

    Silent Horse series is still the best.

    Can anyone beat my record of playing this for 4.4 hours? I think I’m worthy of being thrown in the guinness records book.

    “Holy fuck! What the shit just happened?”

    And that is why we leave the blogging to the professionals.

  9. Swanny says:

    Was that a fucking unicorn on the title screen?

    “That was not my voice…”

    Brilliant. Genius idea, chaps. MOAR PLS!

  11. FurryLippedSquid says:

    Diabolical pony sparkles.

    What I gathered from this is, buried beneath the layers of snark, Nathan is actually too much of a wussy-legged, yellow bellied Capt’n Pissy Pants to play scary games, and has therefore decided to mask his fear by being sarcastic about kid’s games. Better that than spend a minute facing off with facehuggers in Aliens Versus Predator Classic (as we apparently have to call it now) and let the internet hear you scream like an 8 year old girl…

    So… does King like or dislike rats? Or people wearing hats?

    Inquiring minds want to know. Or maybe not, if they know what’s good for them.

  15. Matchstick says:

    To maximize the terror potential read this first to fully understand the horror the first game is dealing with.

      Hah! Yes! This is the first thing that came to mind as I watched the video! Stross’s Laundry series is brilliant.

    the only other thing i have to say is that dog has jerky animation

  17. Crankwerk says:

    I have to agree, this is the scariest game ever – well Democracy 3 was high on my list too…

  18. soopytwist says:

    Yeah, thank you for wasting a portion of my existence. I hate you.

  19. cptgone says:

    and the winner is….
    Fate of the World
