I did something dumb, loyal readers. I did something really dumb that I kind of regret doing. It’s 2:45 when I post this video, and I don’t know if I’ll be getting much sleep tonight anyway. I played a game called Slender. Now, before I downloaded this creepy game I did not have much knowledge of the Slender Man mythos. I’m still not sure if I really know all that much. All I really know is that I don’t think I’ll be playing Slender again anytime soon.
Now, I don’t know how much of a tolerance I have for the horror genre. With movies, I can more than likely power through the truly scary parts. But with video games, you can’t close your eyes or look at your iPad for a few minutes while you wait for the idiot teenagers to get out of the attic you know damn well the killer is hiding in. With games, you have to be that idiot in the attic. You have to be the one to take each frightful step forward. With video games, the horror is more real.
Watch for these brief 8 minutes as I bumble my way through Slender, and attempt to face my fears of the horror genre. I still can’t seem to get to sleep.
