10 Disturbing Moments In Non-Horror Video Games

WC writes: There’s nothing quite as enjoyable as watching or reading something disturbing, and letting it seep into your consciousness for it to haunt you at the most inconvenient moments. We all love a good Creepypasta, horror film or even video game. I think the cathartic enjoyment of being scared is an inherent aspect of the Human condition; the curse of having an imagination is that our fears are free to run wild, but at the same time, believing our fears to be imaginary allows us to take away its power. Whatever the reason, exploiting your fears and scaring you is big business for content creators.

But perhaps what’s even more effective, are the disturbing moments which sneak into otherwise normal media. (Banjo-Kazooie, Fable 3, Metal Gear Solid, PC, PS2, PS3, Retro, The Legend of Zelda, Xbox 360)
