Fridge Horror

  • Many Golden Age arcade video games have this as a subtext. For example, in Berzerk, your character has been dropped into a maze full of deadly (if stupid) robots, and no matter how many of them you kill or how many levels you defeat, you won't ever get out and thus are doomed to die sooner or later. And you can't even rest and take a nap in the corner because Evil Otto is always chasing you.
