Oh man, you did it. You clicked on this column and brought a curse onto your head. Right now, something terrifying has materialized out of the shadows right behind you and is creeping up to make a soup dish of your skull. Don’t look! You’ll just frighten it and then everyone will come out of this looking silly. So act all nonchalant until you feel the claws dig into your scalp, OK?
Or you could be like Vincent, who took his greatest fear to task in Final Fantasy XIV: “You’re just going to have to take my word for it that I vanquished the scary fella behind me, regardless of how petrified I look in this screenshot.”
Ignore the pee on the floor! That’s victory pee right there!

“While I have more shots of enemies just before I hand them their heads, there are a few notable post-head-handing defeats,” Natalyia said. “We don’t see Arcann in this shot, but the expression is entirely apt for my opinion of that character.”
“I really didn’t expect an anime moment in Elder Scrolls Online, but here we are, with a partially bisected Molag Bal and a magical sword of light wielded by an Argonian Vampire,” posted Dak Thulhu. “I’m trying to remember who the villain of this story is again.”
It’s Elves. It’s always Elves.
“And speaking of the 300 who could forget Star Trek Online, Pit of Death Edition?” said Hikari.
I like how we have a Starfleet officer here calmly watching the brutal murder of an alien. That’s the Kirk way!
Chances are that even if you’re not playing an MMO you used to, you still have a screenshot folder or two full of pictures and sweet, sweet memories lying around! This week’s screenshot challenge is to find an old pic from a game you used to play and tell us a story about it.
