Let’s plays of horror games are popular for good reason: watching someone else lose it over a jump scare can be hilarious, and, in case you’re a huge coward (like me), even therapeutic. There have been lots of really good videos over the years — and what better time to take a look back than Halloween (well, post-Halloween)?

Video: Some movie music will keep on giving you the chills, long after the credits rolling. The haunting piano riff from John Carpenter’s classic horror movie Halloween makes it one of those tunes. But, when it’s a bunch of video game car horns bleating it out? It’s actually kind of funny.

DayZ Players Turn To Cannibalism To Survive

Video Desperate times call for desperate measures — and when players are running low on food, there’s no telling what they will do in DayZ to survive.


A Horror Story Only The Worst People Will Understand

I’ll be upfront: The people in this video are awful. Still, I couldn’t help but laugh and shake my head as they freaked out over a “nightmare” scenario involving poor mobile phone service, and the inability to update their social media accounts.


The Kind Of Video Game Violence That Disturbs Me (NSFW)

Hatred is a game about the wanton slaughter of people fuelled by nothing but pure, well, hatred. Its trailer came out this week, and many people found it to be upsetting, even deplorable.
