You know X18 in stalker? Yeah, I was dropping stuff to make room for a monolith suit I found, when all of a sudden all the stuff I dropped started rising up around me. I don't think there was a time in it I wasn't sprinting shooting 10 shotgun shells at whatever moved :saddowns:

[QUOTE=Cheesedragon;24447706]I lack a startle reflex[/QUOTE] no, 95% of "scary" games just aren't scary and are generally jump scare bullshit (a la doom, dead space, stalker, etc) the fatal frame series is okay the first time around
Stalker when I first encountered the controllers. Scratch that, when ever I entered any of the labs.
[QUOTE=cyclocius;24447581][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxjJEzn18mY[/media] Skip to about 7:40, 9/10. Penumbra Black Plague.[/QUOTE] Wow, kudos to that man for not pausing or quitting the game.
[QUOTE=mikymikmik;24447914]minecraft[/QUOTE] Surprisingly so, actually. The ambient cave sounds combined with pitch dark and jumping spiders casing the darkness around you make for some creepy moments. Good thing torches exist!
Penumbra, 11/10
Minecraft I dig myself into a hole when night comes
The first time one of those motherfucking fire ants from Fallout 3 appeared behind me :<
Penumbra 10/10 Although some of the atmosphere was gone when my friend kept saying how much of a pussy I was.
[QUOTE=Dr Bob;24448127]Wow, kudos to that man for not pausing or quitting the game.[/QUOTE] That's me :buddy:
Minecraft. Seriously. I didn't get scared a single time in Nightmare House 2, but in Minecraft I'm still afraid to enter dark caves :ohdear:

Sometimes in Oblivion when I'm raiding ruins and caves and an Ogre or Zombie pops out of nowhere and I shit myself
Penumbra and Silent Hill 2
Definitely Penumbra. STALKER has its moments too.
Penumbra is goddamn horrifying. Those developers deserve a reward for that shit. 10
In Dead Space when you are fighting the regenerating necromorph, I give it a 9 because the second time you fight him you have to move a bunch of blocks that you just moved around in order to go on but when you go back through that area, you are extremely panicked because if you take too long he'll jump out of a vent and get you.
I don't really get scared in games anymore though, probably because I haven't been playing the right ones like Penumbra and etc. Gonna try STALKER soon though so that should probably do something.

I give it a 9, too.

The horror I felt when I found out I couldn't kill it and had to run still gives me the chills
I can power through almost anything [b]EXCEPT[/b] water. Fuck you water. Fuck you in your slippery, watery asshole.
Cheap scares like sudden appearance of a face with or without a scream always gets me. But they're so fucking cheap. But game wise, pretty much those house flash games. Silent hill, maybe. doom 3, fear, penumbra, dead space, condemned, etc... don't scare me. I like their environments so I get glued into it.
[QUOTE=-amin-;24444963]Doom 3, penumbra, dead space : 10. [editline]09:46PM[/editline] those games don't want to let me sleep. compared to them, headcrab = butterfly.[/QUOTE] Never played Dead Space, but Doom 3 was not scary at all and all 3 Penumbra games didn't do the trick for me.
I couldn't finish the end of Penumbra Black Plague for a month.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, Lab X18. It was my first playthrough. I had a Merc suit (don't know why I didn't have better), the fast-shooting AK-74, an AN-94 Abakan, a USP Compact, and the AK-74 w/ GP-25. I ran down to the floor with the Pseudogiant and stood outside the hallway of it, not knowing what was in the next room. I paused, and for whatever reason, dropped my armor, and noticed the ground was shaking. I ran into the room, and not noticing the Pseudogiant, continued to move in. When I was in the middle of the room, I saw something attack me from behind. I jumped ten feet in the air, turned around, and saw the fucker. I nearly screamed and began to spray the fast-shooting AK-74, all the while running back up the stairs. Once I was there, I took relief in the fact it didn't follow me. However, I noticed I was completely out of ammo, on all of my guns. I only had the ammo initially loaded into the gun. I tossed all my grenades in, then began a hit-and-run tactic of running in, emptying the mag, running out, switching guns, repeat. After doing this, I noticed it was still alive, so I pulled out my knife and rushed it. I was killed nearly the moment I ran in. :v: I only had one save, and saved it right before I ran in. It made me stop playing for nearly a year.
System Shock 2 mentioned once. I am thoroughly disappointed, that game is fucking terrifying. Somehow MORE terrifying with its mildly blocky graphics. [editline]02:21AM[/editline] Anyone who is a fan of horror games owes it to themselves to play it. It's actually fun as well as creepy as fuck.
Singleplayer GMOD scares the fuck out of me for some reason.
This may sound like a kind of fanboyish thing to say, but games that aren't meant to be scary scare me more than horror. For instance, Halo 3 (oh no Halo 3 sucks bandwagon rolling into town). A lot of times, I find that games that are made to be dark, and you're just waiting to die are scarier than actual horror like FEAR, because it's the psychological aspect, thinking "There's another player hunting me down, wanting to kill me, and there's nothing I can do to stop him." I made a map based on the Shining. At the beginning, several people start in a bathroom, trying to get out of a window to the outside, while "Jack" walks down a dark hall growing close to them. After getting out of the window, the players are transported to a maze, where they try to avoid Jack. It's probably one of the scariest things I've played. And, you get to be scared with your friends.
Scariest moment of my life: I was walking around in fallout 3, didn't see anyone. So as I said, just walking along; and I start to hear footsteps. I just thought it was the sound glitching a bit so I keep walking, but the footsteps continue. So I turn around really fast and one of those big ogre things are staring me right in the face and I literally throw my controller on the ground and yell. 10/10 [editline]01:51AM[/editline] and I can't play bioshock...
