I think I am well past the age and experience where a giant skull or red light streaming in through windows is going to convince me that a locale in an MMO is actually scary. So many Halloweenish symbols have become nothing more than tropes and signifiers that this is an “evil” place that is checking off boxes on its list of standard decor.
Yet I have encountered genuinely unsettling and creepy places in MMOs, and I assure you that none of them have bones covering the walls. The deep, dark silos of Fallen Earth still haunt me, as does the burnt shell of Secret World’s Black House.
It doesn’t have to be scream-out-loud scary, but have you ever encountered any creepy places in MMORPGs? What were they?
