The things that terrify us never fade - the dark, basements, isolation, bugs, lake monsters, Paula Deen -but time isn't kind to our scary stories. Some horror stands up, though. The Exorcist is every bit as freaky as it was 40 years ago, but is Silicon Knights' Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem still as scary in 2014 as it was in 2002? Will people who've never played that Gamecube classic still freak the geek out when they play it for the first time?

Intrepid explorers that we are here at Joystiq, we're going to find out today on Joystiq Streams. Our very own Xav de Matos will play Eternal Darkness for the very first time on Joystiq Streams today at 4PM EST at Joystiq.com/Twitch. Come find out how one of gaming's horror essentials holds up.
