Play Path of Neo next.

Watch out for the surprise dog! *windowsmash*

Just watched this, it's great. I am also a complete pansy, so cannot wait for when the games get truly scary.

Also Hip Hop Bodega, when is the album coming out?

I like this so much.

Very enjoyable.

Aren't you guys worried about the sexual tension? It's palpable.

Half-life up next?

This just gets me even more excited for Luigi's Mansion 2.

Posted by PatVB

That was hilarious. You guys are amazing.

Oh intern content. So much worse than regular content, but somehow just as compelling!

But seriosuly, you open a wardrobe and a ghost is inside, and somehow you don't yell monster closet? Missed opportunity.

This reminds me how much I absolutely love Luigi's Mansion.

Posted by JeanLuc

I would love to see this as an actual feature on the site.

You guys are wussies! 
 
I'm actually a huge wuss and only recently have I been able to play through some of the first Resident Evil games. The REmake is still far too scary for me, though.

I was legitimately scared of Luigi's Mansion back in the day.

The main giantbomb crew should do more things like this. It's been a while since we've seen new stuff.

This is already better Betting the FarmVille.

Just go head first into Fatal Frame 2. That's what made me immune to scary games. Ok, immune is stretching it. Lets say, more tolerable of scary games.

This is a fantastic idea... provided you do, eventually, make it to the scary games.  And don't save Silent Hill 2 for last- the scary-ness of that game is extremely overrated outside of maybe one or two short areas where the tension is really great.

System Shock 2 should be the final boss.

Posted by Grissefar

What a wonderful idea for a show, Matt Kessler. I hope you eventually make it to Siren: Blood Curse because there's nothing scarier than being a little girl alone in the hospital at night.

Intern content is too good, perhaps rivaling Jeff or Vinny content.

Posted by megajew

All of the Fatal Frame games, they scared the sh*t out of me. I hate ghosts lol.

Edited by Redbullet685

This is gonna be good.
Edit: Yes! Clock Tower is on the list! That game was scary as shit when I was young.

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

That ending was so great. I remember my vision quest to be able to endure scary games began with Luigi's Mansion as well, and it actually worked

Posted by Sayishere

Luigis mansion was such a joy to play.

Posted by megajew

Luigi's Mansion was my first last gen game. Played it so many times.

Posted by Grilledcheez

I wish they would let you post these in the actual video section...

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Luigi's Mansion wasn't scary, even when I was 8. I can't wait for when you guys get to stuff that is actually disturbing instead of just Nintendo-y.

Posted by MooseyMcMan

Cool.

Posted by MachoFantastico

That was entertaining and excited for when you actually get to some real scary games.

Forgot how wonderfully animated Luigi's Mansion was, still looks great.

Video seems to be broken at the end for me. Can we also have them slightly longer of possible. Great stuff.

Oh god when I decided to walk down that one small hallway with the barred window.....

Those damn kids.

Good luck with amnesia. You'll need it.

Posted by Tordah

Luigi's Mansion is awesome. Now I kinda want to play it again after seeing this.

Condemned!

Posted by Zajtalan

I loved that game. Great segment you guys are warming up nicely 

Posted by Claude

I have an old EGM review of this game. Checkout this scan and how one dude used the controller.

Posted by KarlPilkington

This was better then some of the recent GB quick looks.

Posted by chilibean_3

I like this idea for a series.

Posted by Claude

Oh and cool series guys.

Thumbs Up
Posted by Make_Me_Mad

I have to ask what version of Clock Tower you'll be playing.  The old PS1 version gave me nightmares throughout my middle school years.

Posted by ZombiePie

I still think that Luigi's Mansion is garbage.

Oh shit thoses parts as the little girl were so damn scary. Especially the bit where you are trapped in that house with the crazy family.

The interns are running the asylum! Also if you have to play any Silent Hill game, Silent Hill 3 is without a doubt the scariest. It may not have the best story, which counts for a lot with a SH game, but where it matters the most for a feature like this--the scares--then SH3 is definitely the one you should check out.

Nice work Dudes!! Good stuff!

I always thought 3 had the best story, but was the least frightening.  It might just be because Heather is kind of a badass.

is it wrong for me to want to hear Kessler scream?
