Happy Halloween! Here is a Look at a Scary NES Game

Friday the 13th Cover

Friday the 13th is one of those games you can’t help but love, despite all of the hatred.  Released in 1989, The authors of Nintendo Power rated Friday the 13th the sixth worst game ever made in the magazine’s September 1997 issue.  It was touted as having frustrating gameplay and a repetitive musical score.  While that may be true, it still doesn’t take away from the creepiness and dread we felt trying to survive Jason’s wrath.

Even though the ending may be one of the most abrupt and confusing of all-time.
