Friday the 13th: The Game needs to add these five playable killers

1. Pamela Voorhees (Friday the 13th)

As much as I want to see the other Jasons make it into this game, I’m going to be honest. There’s no playable killer I feel needs to be included more than Pamela Voorhees. Longtime fans of this franchise don’t even need for me to explain why. But for the rest of you, I’ll lay it out so it makes sense.

In the original flick, Jason Voorhees isn’t the killer at all. He presumably drowned as a child in Camp Crystal Lake. Distraught, his mother snapped and began murdering camp counselors as her way of taking revenge. Determined to keep the camp closed at all costs, she will kill anyone who attempts to reopen it (which is exactly what happens in the first movie).

Logistically, of course, putting Pamela in the game does create some problems. It’s not like it makes sense for her to use any of the executions Jason has in his arsenal. Mrs. Voorhees will need her own set of kills, which will be much more stealthy and a bit less supernatural. But she seems to teleport in the movie almost as well as her son does in the sequels — so using some of these same abilities I don’t think would be an issue.

Beyond that, it’s just a matter of altering some of the little things. Instead of Pamela whispering in your ear to kill people, perhaps she just hears the cries of her son flailing in the water, calling out for his mother. It gives me the creeps just thinking about it. But that’s all the more reason to make it so.

Next: Friday the 13th game needs to add these call-in heroes

Adding Pamela to the game isn’t going to be very easy, guys, and we know this. Still — all of us diehard fans of Friday the 13th adore Mrs. Voorhees. We really want to see her in this game one day, so, please, make it happen.
