Nerdist: Play – The Scariest Action Video Games

It’s Halloween week, meaning there are tons of “Top 5″and Ttop 10” list sprinkled throughout the web, counting down the scariest games of all time. Without even looking, I can guarantee you that Resident Evil 5 and Dead Space 3 won’t make any of these list. Why is that, you ask? Because the popular consensus is that action games are not scary. How can a game creep you out if it makes you a killing machine and builds its gameplay around the fact that you can dispatch countless enemies in the blink of an eye? I don’t know the technical answer to this question, but what I do know is that that it’s possible.

Today’s episode of Nerdist: Play is on location at some creepy haunted house Jessica Chobot brought us to.

All while trying to contain myself in the spooky mess of a garden that I happen to waltz into.
