Recently, AskMen.com ranked the top 10 scariest video games. Ranking at the very top were the following:
1. Dead Space
Scary moment: Take your pick. The ghastly operating room scene, the first time you encounter a Necromorph or… the ending.
2. Resident Evil 4
Scary moment: Try the Bella Sisters, meeting El Lago up close or shooting a hissing and creeping Regenerator in vain.
3. Left 4 Dead
Scary moment: When you hear the Witch weeping nearby and you have your light on, or the anticipation of calling for rescue, knowing “they’re coming to get you, Barbara.”
Check out the article for the rest of the list. All games are available on Amazon.com or other stores in various formats.

You can check out eBay for some rare (or not so rare) items from your favorite haunts:
2010 HHN Orlando Media Kit: A starting bid of $240 seems a little steep for this (especially since the seller surely got it for free), but you get a bloody box, a bloody rag, a branding iron with the HHN logo, plus the press release and a photo of a really ugly guy (goes by the name of “Fear).
eBay also has some HHN shirts, pins, park maps, and even a set of Coke cans with HHN coupons on them (really? would anyone actually buy these?).
