Exposition Break is a website and podcast dedicated to video game criticism, analysis, and wild pontification. New episodes are uploaded every two weeks. Hosts: Blake Foley & Sean Gandert
It's the season of the witch, so we decided to focus our entire episode on scary video games, be they traditional horror titles or simply games that gave us chills. For help with this endeavor, we enlisted the service of horror connoisseur Kate Currie, one half of The Library Ladies' blog. Along the way, we touch on Left 4 Dead, P.T., Night in the Woods, Castlevania, Resident Evil 7, and of course that paragon of horror titles, Super Mario Bros. 2. Yes, seriously. Also under discussion: whether poor controls are an important part of making truly terrifying games, the role of the uncanny in scaring us, and whether sometimes it's more exciting to play as the monster than it is to flee in terror.
