All mediums of entertainment strive to elicit strong reactions in their audiences, and video games are obviously no different. And very few reactions to something are ever as honest or leave as lasting of an impact as being scared out of your wits. So of course, game’s love to do that as well. But for a game to do that, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a horror title. Over the years, there have been countless video games that have had genuinely scary moments and sequences that, all said and done, didn’t belong to the horror genre at all. In this feature, we’re going to take at fifteen such levels in non-horror video games. Some of these might be downright frightening, while others might just be disturbing in different ways, but we feel all fifteen of these deserve to be mentioned in this feature.

Please note that there might be slight spoilers ahead, so stop watching if we start talking about a game you don’t want spoiled. In case you have any suggestions that we may have failed to mention, drop a comment down below.

Without further ado, let’s begin.

DEVIL’S HOUSE (METAL GEAR SOLID 5: THE PHANTOM PAIN)

Hideo Kojima and his Metal Gear games have had a long history of featuring some truly frightening sequences, and The Phantom Pain was obviously no different (in this regard, at least). One of the more disturbing scenes in the entire game comes in the location known as the Devil’s House. Seeing the dozens upon dozens of people who’re being experimented on by XOF in this dingy location can seriously give you the creeps, while the mere presence of Psycho Mantis and the Man on Fire also presents a tough challenge. Hell, there’s even a P.T. easter egg in here.
