Quote from: Abattur
My choice would be Silent Hill 2

The atmosphere, the sounds the gloominess, and never forget those damn Pyramid Heads, really that game scared me to the bones more than once.


Hehe, I looked at the thread title & thought to myself immediately "Silent Hill", but I'm going to go for number one.  It was far more atmospheric than the second, which was a good game essentially, but not quite as 'creepy' as the original.

Another vote for SS2.
My first moment of really jumping in my seat was just after I got a working shotgun.  I was actually feeling much safer, confident that I could drop anything that came at me now, so I wasn't as careful as I should have been.
I was playing with headphones, so when someone screamed in my left ear "KILL ME!" I jumped about a foot in the air, knocked my glass off the desk, and shot the floor in front of me twice before I managed to turn around and blast the stupid zombie.

What's this new game that a lot of the old SS team is working on?
I read something about it a few months ago...


The game you're thinking of BioShock. Unfortunately it's not a true sequel to System Shock 2, but it is definitely a spiritual successor. Check it out here.

Scariest game?  I dunno.  Whole games don't really scare me.

Scariest MOMENT, however... Metroid Prime certainly wins.  Climbing up the tower after getting the thermal visor, and the lights are out... and then... you hear glass shatter.  The battle music picks up, and you hear the scariest sound your Gamecube would ever utter.

"SQUEE!"

Damn right... Metroids... UGH.  Those things are SCARY.

Haven't played many scary games, but the first Resident Evil scared the shit outta me when I had a lend of it from someone. I was like 7..

Scariest moment - Playing Medal of Honour : Allied Assault while really drunk. Happily sniping away at some nazi's, i look left, then I see 2 fucking guard dogs about a foot away from me. Literally jumped out of my seat.

Doom 3 has had me scared witless on occasions; the decision to not have a built-in flashlight was a great one and added tons to the atmosphere. You know something is going to come at your face, but you can't see where from.
Which of the Resident Evil/Silent Hill games would you say were the best/scariest? I can see that I might have to pick up a copy of them :D

The scariest game I ever played was Superman 64.

This is because I played it while my friend was with me, and he said "You know, the people making this game probably thought they had done a good job."

I didn't sleep for a week.


What?

Ohhhh. You meant the traditional kind of scary.


The first Silent Hill. I was just young enough to be scared spitless at that point.

Obviously, the key to a scary video game is a proper, immersive atmosphere.

RE isn't too scary, because you're a badass SWAT team member fighting a bunch of slow-ass zombies in a nice, clean mansion. It's creepy, but not scary.

But when you're an average guy being chased by demonic children with knives, through some hellish perversion of an elementary school filled with bloody, rusted wheelchairs and steel grate floors and the phone suddenly rings only to hear "Daddy? Where are you daddy?" on the other end, you start to get a little freaked out.

My single scariest moment in any video game:

Silent Hill 1, the alternate universe elementary school. You hear a rattling locker down the hall, like you did in the real elementary school. You go open the locker, that's rattling louder and louder, expecting something to pop out like a cat did earlier. It swings open: nothing inside but bits and pieces of blood and gore. Relieved, you turn around to walk out, and a freaking corpse falls out of another nearby locker right in front of you.

I screamed like a little girl and jumped all the way across the room.

Eternal Darkness... and if you didn't regularly recharge your sanity the screeen would get tilted and blood would drip down it... SOOO f*cked up.

I think the first Halflife was pretty darn scary as well.

1) Half-Life 2 scared my ass off, mostly in fucking Ravenholm, and come to think of it, pretty much anywhere with those large zombies made of mostly headcrabs. I often found myself wishing they had just pit me against the Combine.

2) Did anyone play "The Suffering?" Holy shit, that game scared me. Especially the occasional insanity effect, and the fact that you had choices to make and if you made a bad one you saw an image of your character's wife screaming and heard it. Fuck.

3) Do not talk to me about Silent Hill 2. I still get creeped out on occasion.

On the topic of scary games, you all know about the upcoming Call of Cthulhu game, right? From all I've read about it on various websites, it sounds like it's going to be pretty faithful to Lovecraft's works. There will also be sanity effects, of course. Unlike the sanity effects in Eternal Darkness, though, there aren't any humourous ones. It's horror and tension through the whole game. And they're not just hallucinations, either: you may just blow your own brains out if you get sufficiently terrified.

Another promising aspect is the absence of a HUD. No health bar, no ammo count... nothing. Better keep track of how many rounds you've fired. Awesome.

There's tonnes of other cool stuff about it. Read for yourself.

Anything based on Lovecraft's works ought to be scary as hell, unless those developing the game are complete morons. Screens and videos have looked rather good this far though.

I'm waiting.

Scariest game hands down is a jap game for the ps2 called Siren. It's similar to Silent Hill, only with the added "radio vision" in which you could use the two joysticks on the ps2 controller to pick up on other character's vision. Enemies, other characters, yourself.... With this, you can watch the zombie enemies sauntering around, sharpening whatever weapon they died with, creeping up on your character from behind. The fuzziness like tuning in to TV channels using a knob just added to the scarification.

Fuck yeah, all the weird flashback shit was really creepy.  They really do a good job at building up the tension at the begining of the game.  I think I read the sequel will read the memory card of data from the first game and will affect the story in the second game based off the good/evil decisions in the first game.

Call of Cthulu sounds pretty awesome.

Man, you've all made me want to play SS2 now. And, like any sufficiently cool person, I actually have a real copy of it. Sweetness. But I also want to play FO2 again, but...eh...

At any rate, I can't remember what games have really SCARED me, rather than just surprised me. If stuff is just popping out at you, it's like, "Waah! ...Oh, just die already." And you shoot them. Unless you're out of ammo. Then you run.

But yeah, I'm gonna instal SS2 now...

SS2 is the scariest game ever, I put it in the CD tray, and it said, "This product cannot be installed on Windows NT due to limitations with DirectX 6.1"

And I screamed, "NOOOOOOOOOOO*hiccup*OOOOOOOOOOOO*hiccup*OOOOOOOOOOO*hiccup*OOOOOOOO!

This is ridiculous. Windows 2000 has never failed me before. Plus, I still have the hiccups. I'VE HAD THEM FOR LIKE AN HOUR. IT SUCKS.

LOVED System Shock, all those years ago . . . Can't say it really scared me, though.  Haven't played S.S.2.

Scariest gaming moment I can think of is the "Return to the Cathedral" mission from Thief.  All through the game you've been learning about staying in the shadows to survive, avoiding conflict so you don't get the shit beaten out of you - and then at the start of that mission you get dumped in blazing light with the sound of virtually indestructable zombies and ghosts and god knows what else all around you, and three closed doors.  What do you do?  Where do you go??  And the more you think about it, the more you realise you've got to do something, fast, before one of those doors opens . . . Paralysed with fear.

Doom 3 is decently jumpy, however after about 20 minutes of playing it loses that. The more I played it, the easier it got to see the little nooks and crannies things are going to pop out of.

The Haunted Hotel in Vampire The Masquerade scared the bejesus the first time I played through it. Childrens voices going from giggles to screams... scary stuff. Lights flicker and the words GET OUT are written on the wall right before your eyes. Great scary ambience.

Halo even had its nice jumpy parts once the Flood show up.

Lets see now - From personal experience:
System Shock 2, especially the moment when Shodan appears in a blaze of Matrix/Lawnmower Man style graphics and all your hope about seeing a friendly face falls out your bottom. The first system shock scared me too, since you knew it was Shodan from the start, but she'd continually hack your comlink at key points to shit you up even further 0_o)
Any Marine/Predator level after the first on AVP 1 and 2: Its this point the facehuggers appear :|
Ravenholm, Half-Life 2: It doesn't help when you are at a dimmed lights LAN party wearing headphones and some 16 stone bastard decides to grab you be the neck from behind
From second hand experience, the Cradle level from Thief 3 is supposedly the most traumatising game moment. There was a huge article about it in PC Gamer UK, and its especially effective in a game where you are trying to be sneaky since you jump at sudden noises and movement on normal levels :)

By far, the scariest game ever was Eternal Darkness : Sanity's Requiem
If it wasnt the crying woman sound in the background, the pure fright from your character suddenly falling to pieces, the statues gaze following you in hallways, or any of that, it had to be the idea of a normal, spindly little girl going up against a GOD... a tad scary there

Second would be RE4... Smart enemies = Hella Scary

The two games that I've played that have really freaked me out aren't as weird when they are played with a full night's rest. American McGees Alice, and The suffering. Both mixed with a lot of sleep deprivation, Bawls, and being a fifteen year old home alone on a Friday night/ Saturday morning and Saturday night in a room where no sunlight can enter = t3h cr33p5. And all the hallucinations in the Suffering were freaking me out because, at first, I thought I was hallucinating.

Quote from: James

I wouldn't say it's my scariest game, but the single most terrifying gaming moment for me was in Eternal Darkness. The bathroom, man. Man, the bathroom.


When I accidentally saw that the first time, I was just like "that's it, man. That's it." I put down the controller and didn't play the game for a good week and a half.

SH2 was the best horror I've ever played pending my trying SS2, but I was in love with the concept of Siren. The atmosphere and "sightjack" things were pretty neat. and I liked the enemies too. but playing it sucked pretty hard due to the fact that you couldn't see anything 'cause o' the darkness and the REALLY clunky controls. It seems more like a noble yet failed experiment by my experiences.

I thought the Suffering was pretty intense, untill I got Doom 3!  That game is intense as all crap!  It'd have been easier if I turned up the brightness on my monitor, but thats for wussies. :P  Its just as some of the web comics portray it...  don't touch or say anything to someone playing Doom 3.... If it weren't for my intense self control and reflexes, my chihuahua wouldn't still be around :P

Unreal, the original unreal. At the start when your on the prison ship, you stand next to a door and hear a guy scream, and the door opens and his body, ripped to shreds, flies across the room and hits the wall. Later on in the game, whilst your still only armed with the pistol, in a long hallway, the lights slowly turn off one by one, until finally your in darkness, you hear a growl behind you and all you see in the dark are two red eyes.

Scariest fucking moment.

I should have quoted them, but whoever said the thing about Zork Nemesis was right, it creepyed the hell out of me, but a very cool game.
Anyone play Zach Mcraken? Its an old game, but it gave me nightmares, its not that scary.

Which of the Resident Evil/Silent Hill games would you say were the best/scariest? I can see that I might have to pick up a copy of them :D


RE...I'd have to say 4...especially the Mercinary Mission with the Chainsaw Maniac...yeh, fuk that shit.

SH...Check out silent Hill 4, every body raves about SH2, but it just didn't do it for me, the enemies are easy and after awhile it just kills the creep factor, that and theres too much of a big build up to nothing happening ;P

Games that freaked me out though:

Fatal Frame...the game makes me edgy and gives me the shakes..."Where did it go? Oh good it's gone." comes out of camera mode"Jesus, it's right behind me!!!"

Doom 3: was pretty scarey, I did a  lot of "Ahhhh fuck, kill it, kill it." unloading shell after shell into what ever just jumped out of nowhere...until a point where I was just screwing around while my friend was watching and I was like "I wonder how hard it is to kill a demon in hand to hand." Proceeds to pummel said Imp..."Damn demons are tough"  my friend then replies "Demons are tough, you just killed one with your bare hands."...there was no more question as to why you had lived so long and everyone else was dead.

Silent Hill 4: The game just fucks with your head...I refuse to even pin a ghost...the noises they make, god the noises.

Splatterhouse 3 on Genesis: The teddy bear with the claws and the voice of maniacal laughing children, yeh, that was just not right...

Lastly...a very seldom known game...

Space Hulk on 3DO: Probably the most claustraphobic game I've ever played and like AVP...the motion tracker is the key...me and my friend would turn the brightness down on his T.V. to the point of where you could only see about 5 feet in front of yourself and play a mission where you are in corridors where there is no side to side movement only forward and backwards, not to mention that you motion tracker is only audio, the screen on it is nothing but static....imagine being Dallas in the first Alien movie

Fucking yes. This still lives on in my memory as one of the best computer game moments I've experienced ever. It was even better since I played it with a friend of mine and his brother, both of whom had already played it and were prodding me along. Playing at maximum volume and in total darkness also helped.

I was scared witless the whole time, from when you step out of your cell to when you exit onto the planet itself.

All in all, probably the best opening act of any FPS ever.

I've been playing Doom3 a lot more recently. Right now I am scared shitless of the Cherubs. They're babies with no legs and wings and clawed hands, and then they scream "mummy!" and then wail and hiss and cry when you kill them! I have been forced to cheat and arm myself with a chaingun and tons of ammo. I will not face them with anything less. I now refuse to play any Cherub-infested areas at night.

What's this new game that a lot of the old SS team is working on?
I read something about it a few months ago...

That would be BioShock

Lastly...a very seldom known game...

Space Hulk on 3DO: Probably the most claustraphobic game I've ever played and like AVP...the motion tracker is the key...me and my friend would turn the brightness down on his T.V. to the point of where you could only see about 5 feet in front of yourself and play a mission where you are in corridors where there is no side to side movement only forward and backwards, not to mention that you motion tracker is only audio, the screen on it is nothing but static....imagine being Dallas in the first Alien movie

*beep*
*beep*
*beep* beep*
*beep* beep* beep*
"Oh god, is it behind me...where is it coming from."
Next thing you know you turn around to a Genestealer in your face
Genestealers = Aliens w/ four arms and on speed

Agreed, the sequel was just as good, but underrated due to all the FPS games released at the time.

Another vote for SS2.

It had both great elements of a scary game/movie/whatever: shocks and gut-twisting anxiety.

Shock: Moving through the Rec area with that *creeeepy* music playing, going to check out a door when it opens by itself and a cyber-ninja leaps out; or simply playing in total darkness and my water bottle expands with that *poink!* noise the plastic makes. Both occasion I just about shat myself.

Anxiety: Meeting the first of Malick's "surprises"and not knowing what it was or how to kill it; then having a triple-load AP shotgun blast leave it unharmed while it circled round at the speed of thought and killed me while I was running away. I was weak at the knees and shaking after that encounter...
