Playing all that Skyrim at 2 a.m. has not been good for my unconscious brain.
I bought The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim not long after it came out in 2011. I actually bought it as a Christmas present for my husband, but I’ve played it far more than he has.
Only last week did we finally get the DLCs for it. He’s been playing Dawnguard and I’ve been playing Dragonborn.
Dragonborn is tough (well, I was only level 10 or so at the time) and can be really scary. For example, one moment I was in the “real world,” chillin’ in Skyrim, then suddenly I was transported to a hellish Lovecraftian nightscape.
The Gorechimera in Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is a close second for scares. Well, that might be more scary, and Dragonborn more surprising.
What’s the scariest encounter you’ve had in a video game?
