To quote Twilight Zone: The Movie…….do you wanna see something reallllllly scary? Well, I will make you wait a little bit because that’s what I do. Wayyyyy back in 1982 when I was a 6-year-old boy trying to find my way through life – my parents bought me an Atari gaming system. It blew my mind at first. And I remember one of the first games I got besides Yars’ Revenge was Sssnake. Not to be confused with the 70’s horror movie of the almost identical same name.
Frightening! Just look at that snake. He definitely means business. It kind of looks like him and the guy on the cover were playing a game of Kerplunk before the guy decided to shoot a big laser load into the snake’s mouth. But enough about the cover art – how is the gameplay and will you need to sleep with the light on tonight after you see it? If I do remember correctly, this game is not for the faint of heart – so please use caution when viewing it and please send the smaller children out of the room:
Yeeesh. The only thing frightening about that is that it could possibly give you a seizure. This game should have been called Sssnore. Ok – my work is done here.
I honestly never thought I would be doing a post about an Atari video game that costs $500. But here we go! Not just any Atari video game though – but The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Atari video game:
I was actually surprised that the price was so high for this. Not because it’s an old video game, but because it’s a shitty old video game. Pretty much the best thing about it is the cover with the Columbo-looking guy hunting down Leatherface and the fact that Leatherface’s chainsaw in the game looks the cross between a faucet and a penis. Nevermind the $500 price tag, if you are the hardcore horror collector, this is a must to own. Go check out the listing on Ebay over HERE and make sure to check out some of the awesomely bad footage from the game down below:
