There are good times to play scary video games and there are bad times to play scary video games. Doing the latter can mean you're sleeping on the couch. If you're lucky.
The latest video from the folks at Good Game focuses on the horrific effects that Alien: Isolation has on one married couple. I'd argue that the dread that comes from waiting for a spouse's revenge is far worse than any sequence in a horror game. You can walk away from a console. The person you live with? Not so much.
