RadarPlays - ParanoiaScape

Not every game can boast that it pioneered an entirely new genre. But ParanoiaScape, for the PS1, paved the way for what might be the most unlikely genre of all time: first-person horror pinball. Lucas, Tom, and Ryan can barely process the macabre sights they encounter during this nightmarish trip, which may or may not result in complete and utter failure. It all begs the question: What kind of psychotropic drugs was Screaming Mad George on when he came up with this stuff?

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past on RadarPlays Retro, Wednesdays we change things up to whatever we feel like playing with RadarPlays Shuffle, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of in RadarPlays Freaky. We'll also release RadarPlays for all the new releases, so be sure to check back!
