Roll up, roll up. And die!
Ah, clowns--the jolly jesters of history. These amiable fellows have entertained children for centuries, with their comically painted faces and hilarious slapstick routines. Yes, sir: nothing sinister about clowns right? Well… In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Clowns are fucking terrifying. Their horrific painted faces haunt dreams, and can cause even fully-grown men to moisten their trousers in terror.
There’s a joke at the end of Uncharted 2, where Nathan Drake confesses to Elena that he’s terrified of clowns. I’m with you Nate. We’re all with you. So, at significant cost to my own sanity, I’ve rounded up the 10 most harrowing clowns in all video games. Some are meant to be scary, others not. At night, they will come for you.
