*Cue lightning, thunder and evil laughter* NPC’s!
Alright, down to business. So I’ve been wanting to put together one of these A-Side/B-Side Top 20 Video Game Theme posts for a while now. We didn’t do one for September, and haven’t done one since our Ragtime countdown in August.
Since last month I thought it’d be appropriate to put together a list of Top 20 Scary Video Game Themes, but I hit a snag. Turns out (and the revelation hit me like a gold brick wrapped in a lemon wedge), I haven’t played that many scary games. Ever. I adored Alien: Isolation, and I’ve played Silent Hill and Resident Evil back in the days of yore, but there’s a whole wealth of terrifying games out there I’ve never ever touched. I don’t even know what Five Nights At Freddy’s IS! /s
So… that’s where our community comes in. This is the first time I’m giving the world a chance to speak into this process. If you have played a scary game and can think of some pee-pee releasing music that you think should make it onto a list of the Top 20 scariest video game music ever, then leave the name of the song and the game it’s from in yon comments below!
We can have this ready before Halloween. I’ve got a few tracks in mind. Remember to think outside of the box, as there may be a ton of creepy music out there in non-horror categories.
I’m a guy who doesn’t play scary games. How badly can you scare me?
