If all of my Harry Potter posts this year haven't been proof enough I am obsessed with Harry Potter!

My Favorite Horror Games

October 28, 2017

I never have been one for haunted houses or scare experiences. They just don't get me. They can't hurt you. They just jump out at you. The danger isn't real and the jump scares are easy to spot. 

Horror games on the other hand, it feels real. If you mess up you'll kill the character. It has a sense of realness. The adrenaline pumps like crazy. They might chase you in a haunted house but they aren't going to hurt you when they catch you. In a game, you're dead if you get caught.
