The 12 Things That Truly Scare Us

(Contributor: James Fudge)

Now that we're older, though arguably not all that much wiser, the CG staffers realized that the things that once spooked us no longer work the same voodoo on us. Forget vampires and zombies and ghouls. You want a real scare? Try looking at your 401k these days. Or have a stare-down with this month's mortgage payment. Pretty ghoulish, no?

In honor of this year's Halloween, that time of year when we're supposed to celebrate old-fashioned Boos! and Aiiieeees!, we came up with a dozen things guaranteed to make any gamer curl into a ball and hold himself. Enjoy.

7. Sid Meier runs out of inspiration, takes his turn-based strategy series in a unfortunate direction.

6. "G4: The Movie."
Morgan Webb and Adam Sessler will be immortalized in this cable network film about two crazy kids reading unfunny things off of teleprompters, co-starring a monkey and Rob Schneider. The New York Times calls it "A road movie that never quite gets on the road." Thanks, NY Times.

4. Kotaku liveblogs Denis Dyack's breakfast.
"Now he is forming a small pile of eggs on the far side of his plate. Now he is reaching for his Dr Pepper. Now he is adjusting his pants. Now he is asking the waiter for a toothpick. Now he is ordering a dessert. Now he is ordering a second dessert?"

3. Archeologists digging in a Nevada desert uncover an unspeakable evil: An evil, smelly, gassy pit filled with E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial 2 cartridges.

Yes, there was a sequel to this hellspawn. The truly scary part here is that if Atari had decided to release the game, it would still be 42 percent more playable than Alone in the Dark.

2. Bantam Books announces "BioShock: The Novel."
The book gives fans a chance to experience the wonder of BioShock again, only this time from a Big Daddy's perspective. Sample: "Today I followed the little girl around again. I kept asking her if we could stop somewhere for lunch, or maybe to pee. She said no. Then some guy came running by. He ran around checking all the trash cans and opening boxes. He was very odd. When he got a little too close, I gave chase. I followed him into the next room. All of a sudden, this turret started shooting at me. And this guy is lobbing grenades at my feet. Man, times like this I seriously consider going back to school, maybe getting a degree in something useful this time. Or maybe H&R Block would hire me, and I could do people's taxes?" <

In the dark, shadows become alive and can turn into the tremendous monsters which during daytime we succeed to keep hidden. Children think the monsters invisible in the dark as real, because they still cannot distinguish imagination from reality and therefore we should never undervalue their conduct and consider it as a mere tantrum or even be very intolerant forcing them to behave normally thus probably causing the problem to growth and endure for life.
