Those Evil Eyes

Oooh, sppoooooky! Glowing red eyes are serious business and their menacing demeanor definitely conveys danger and risk to the viewer. There are plenty of games that use this template without using specifically red glowing eyes, but this is by far the most common one on store shelves. Eyes are natural focal points, so it makes sense to use that to your advantage as a designer, but when you look at them all side-by-side a lot of that efficacy is lost.
