Why does creepy music sound even creepier when channeled through a Game Boy? Maybe it’s that we still think of the Game Boy as a system we played on family trips. Maybe we think about it being more innocent, like when we were kids. Regardless the reason, when it skews sinister it gets uncomfy real fast, and this Halloween episode features some of the most unsettling music yet. BTW, this episode is limited to creamed spinach-era Game Boy and Game Boy Color only.
