List Rules Vote up the creepiest locations you've visited in Fallout 4

In creating the massive open world of Fallout 4, Bethesda Softworks incorporated many creepy details, including spooky locations. Aside from the immersive sandbox world, the compelling story, the amazing weapons and perks, and the sly sense of humor there's a lot that sets the Fallout franchise apart from other video games. One aspect to Fallout that stands out more than any other open world RPG, and that's the spooky little details.

Whether they're part of a quest or simply some mis en scene designed to provide some spooky atmosphere, Fallout does an excellent job cranking the scare factor up to ten. The best part is that Fallout games rarely rely on jump scares to get your blood flowing; instead, there are intricately woven stories that have to do with the selfish and depraved things mankind can get up to once civilization as we know it crumbles.

Check out this list of the creepiest places you can visit in Fallout 4, and try your best to get some sleep at night after exploring them yourself. You'll also find some loose direction on where you can find all these places, so after you rank your favorites, turn on your console of choice and get to work!
