The Haunted Mansion: Fun With Grim Grinning Ghosts

Welcome foolish mortals, to the next installment of Halloween-inspired posts on Strange Moments in Gaming.  If you're a fan of the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland, then the game featured today is right up your alley.  This game is none other than The Haunted Mansion, a ghost-filled experience that is somewhat unique due to being based on a theme park ride.

Ready to dive into this massive house of spooks?  Ok then, there's no turning back now.

Five Nights at Freddy's: The Pizzeria From Hell

It's October again!  Time to drag those dusty Halloween decorations down from the attic, then load up a horror movie while you carve up some pumpkins.  October also means it's time for Strange Moments in Gaming to transform into Scary Moments in Gaming, where you'll find articles about all sorts of creepy and/or terrifying segments of games.

So let's kick off the month of horror with one of the scariest and most suspenseful games I've played in years: Five Nights at Freddy's.

Freddy Fazbear, your new best friend.

The premise of Freddy's is that you are a security guard who works the night shift at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, a sort of alternate universe Chuck-E-Cheese where instead of a single ugly rat mascot, there are four animatronic animal mascots.
