Guest Post: Three Video Games to Give You a Fright!

Today post is written by Josephine B., my younger sister. Enjoy!

Hey dudes! Halloween is almost upon us, so here are some spooky games to play!

1. Five Nights at Freddy’s

In the game you work as a security guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. The animatronics are allowed to wander at night, so you sit in the security office and watch the animatronics on cameras. The objective is to keep them out of the room and to survive the night.

One of the best things about the game is that your only defense, if one of the animatronics appears too close, is to close the door. Just waiting for something to appear creates a sense of dread.

There are multiple jump scares, but the scariest one is when the animatronic Foxy can be seen running down the hall. The other animatronics can’t move on camera but are still creepy because they just lurk in the other rooms, and it’s quite terrifying when one appears right outside the door.

Based on the characters and gameplay, I rate it 5 out of 5.

2. Left 4 Dead 2

This is a first person shooter game where a group of survivors have to battle zombies to get to a safe place. You have to fight not only zombies but also awesome mutated infected known as “specials.” There are different campaigns you can play and they all have an awesome choice of melee weapons, such as a machete, a katana, or an axe.

The specials are cool because they each have their own different attacks. The Smoker, for example, grabs you with his tongue. The witch is pretty deadly if you startle her, so beware every time you hearing crying.

The game has multiplayer which is awesome because you have to work together to get to the end. It’s also fun playing with other people and competing to see who get the most kills!

Because of multiplayer and zombies, I rate it 4 out of 5.

3. Dead Space

In this game you answer a distress call on a spaceship. When you arrive, you find all the people are missing and the creatures, called “necromorphs,” attack. You get separated from your teammates so you have to find your way back to them and escape the ship. Now you have to go around fixing things and killing necromorphs.

The reason I like this one a lot is because it’s set in space and being in space is pretty terrifying. The scariest thing about the game are the sounds that the creatures make and how creepy they are (check out the Guardian necromorph at 3:00 in this video.) The like to scare you by jumping out of vents! You get to buy really cool weapons like a flamethrower and a saw.

Based on the creatures, I rate it 4 out of 5.
