Shack Reels: Top 10 Scariest Creatures

Happy Halloween! Shacknews celebrates the holiday with our own Greg Burke offering the 10 Scariest Creatures in Video Games!


Happy Halloween, everyone! To further celebrate today's special day, Shacknews is taking a look at some of the scariest games to ever grace a PC or video game console. In particular, we're looking at some of the most frightening characters to ever emerge from these games.

So join our own Greg Burke on a journey where he encounters the scariest characters in video games. Watch the whole list below. And, of course, if you disagree, feel free to add your own choices in this article's accompanying Chatty thread.

Shack Staff stories are a collective effort with multiple staff members contributing. Many of our lists often involve entires from several editors, and our weekly Shack Chat is something we all contribute to as a group.

        These all have scripts before they go into production, so that wouldn't be too hard to make happen. I'll try to keep it in mind next time we give one of them front-page exposure. Thanks for the feedback!

      SUPER OMISSION: Amnesia: The Dark Descent. I think the author would shit his pants in an attempt to play this. lol

      It's obvious the person or people authoring this list haven't played the original F.E.A.R. or Doom 3. Both of those games had crap in them that made me get up and turn the lights on. A slow-moving guy with a triangle on his head is freaking stupid, not scary. ;)
