The scariest video game moments ever aren't in horror games -- they're in perfectly normal shooters, RPGs, or even children's games whose creators decided to spice things up with some out-of-the-way terror. After all, what's more likely to make you pee your pants: seeing a guy in a werewolf mask inside a haunted house or running into him in your kitchen late at night?
So, every year around this time, we like to celebrate those "shit your pants" moments tucked away in the corners of your favorite games ...
Call Of Duty: Finest Hour's Insane Ghost Rooms
Remember when the Call Of Duty games were about good old fashioned Nazi-killing fun, as opposed to forcing you to stare at Kevin Spacey's Tron clone for two hours? Yeah, the games were much simpler back then, such as Call Of Duty: Finest Hour, one of the earliest installments of the saga, where all you did was go around looking for enemies and- WHAT THE MOTHER-LOVIN' FUCK?!
It's a little early for the PTSD to be kicking in.
On the Underground Passage level, you'll run across a door that can't be opened, and, by "can't," we mean "you have to throw two grenades at it, press the action button, and then throw another grenade to blow it up." This will lead you to a circular room with candles floating in the air, baby pictures on the walls, a hog-size rat hidden under the stairs, and a tiny tank rolling around on the floor. It all plays out like a scene from some kind of fucked-up satanic movie, such as Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets or something.
Oh, and don't forget to go up to the crib in the middle of the room, because otherwise you'll miss the ghost child staring at you.
This being COD, he speaks exclusively in racial slurs.
