Top Ten Video Games That Can Haunt Kids for Life

WARNING: never let your kids play these games. I warned you.

The Top Ten


One of the weirdest games out there and is a horror game although it wasn't supposed to be but it is avoid

So weird... Yes that's real game and it has lots of weird pictures. Search on YouTube "LSD the game" and see how weird is it. But for japan its not weird.

I looked it up. it's creepy.

2 Silent Hills: Shattered Memories

Maybe the scareist out of the franchise I don't know. Maybe. - Chaotixhero

3 Five Nights at Freddy's

A lot of kids at my school play this and do not find this scary - Sparkjolt

Actually, it isn't that bad. It may scare kids for a little time, but they realize they were just cute animatronics and stop worrying about it. I, myself, have never found it scary, and I am still a child. (OK, I'll admit it was a little scary! ) Besides, kids always need that rush of energy to make them feel like there growing up!
Maybe it is just me? I get over many scary things in 1 or 2 days after figuring out it was just a video game.

4 Ailen: Isolation

SEGA...a kid's gaming company...nope they make games for adults too. - Chaotixhero

5 Dead Rising

I know some kids like playing zombie gamez but this one however can give your kids nightmares. It didn't to me but that's besides the point. I am so weird HOW AM I SCARED OF THE SILENT HILLS GAMES AND NOT DEAD RISING?! - Chaotixhero
