"I don’t find horror games anywhere near as scary as the very real terrifying things that just kind of… happen in some video games. I mean, have you seen Skyrim‘s living mannequin glitch? Heard the legend of Minecraft‘s Herobrine? Stuff is messed up.
It’s also one of gaming’s greatest strengths, something no other medium can do. Allow me to explain. The short version is, “it’s not a glitch, it’s a feature.”
Given that it’s Halloween, I thought I’d spend the day getting in the spirit by watching creepy video game stuff online. Before long, though, I diverted off the straight-and-narrow of people scream-vomiting up lungs to Amnesia, PT, and Alien: Isolation and followed links to stuff that was downright… weird. Games doing things nobody ever intended for them to do."
