This week, I endured my scariest gaming experience ever.
As soon as the level started, I wanted out. But I couldn't turn back. The long, dank, misery filled level assaulted my senses, never letting me feel comfortable, and I found myself praying that this level would end. I had trouble sleeping this week, and even had a nightmare about this level.
I have read about other people's experiences with this level - for some people it took months, or over a year, to finish this one single level, and others have stopped playing the game completely because they can't take anymore of this brilliant setpiece.
Once you have been through Shalebridge Cradle in Thief: Deadly Shadows, all other horror games feel like Disneyland. And you feel scarred for life. I know I do.
