So, what games to you play again on or near Halloween?

Me, I have an old classic: Harlen Ellison's "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream"

I play it because...its...still terrifying?

Never played the game version of that, though the story is pretty sweet.

I really like this old game called "Last Half of Darkness" (1991 version, not one of the sequels). I remember when I used to play it as a kid over at my friend's house, and my friend, who was a few years younger, used to hide behind my chair and shriek "No! Don't go in there! Oh geez!" and wrap his hands over his face in terror. Which is kind of hilarious.

That game looks cool.

As for the I Have No MOuth game, you should check it out. It was pretty much entirely written by Ellison, and he voices AM.

And dear god is he creepy as fuck.

Also, it kind of expands the character, making them less one note. Also the portrayal of Ellen is less...sexist.

I may revisit Thief 3... The level "The Cradle" scared the everliving crap out of me the first time around. ;)

I keep hearing about The Cradle...but I've never played it.

I found it seriously scary (though I scare easy). By half way through, I had to cut the sound and turn the gamma right up to complete it. ;)

Would you rather be trapped in a dark, underground, unimaginable-horror-filled warren with a) a murderous and psychopathic artificial intelligence, or b), Harlan Ellison?









Pants-soiling twist: a and b are the same!!!!!

Halloween is over and I beat I have No Mouth and got the good ending.

And...um, amazingly enough, the good ending was actually...hopeful and optimistic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I know, my head almost exploded.
