Now hang on, I thought we deleted the Krypt-related examples from here for only being \"mildly scary\" and \"expected\" and the like, now they\'re back and still here?
I\'d delete them again but it might count as an edit war. At least the blindfold ghost isn\'t described as not scary anymore. But calling Goro\'s Lair\'s scares \"lesser\" is admitting that they\'re not that bad, and the death traps are extremely tame by this game\'s standards. The meteor also isn\'t that scary, especially since smashing it with your hammer gives you a reward, so the joy of finding it cancels whatever mild startle it might have caused.
I\'d probably say at least that the way Shang Tsung comments on your death suggests he finds it amusing, which can be pretty disturbing in its own right.
If you\'re playing Mortal Kombat, chances are YOU find the death amusing, given how the games run on Gorn.
Got me there.
