Video Games

What are some of the games that have freaked you out the most? (provided you play games)
playing Eternal Darkness for gamecube (great game, btw) has made me jump countless times due to the scenery and the effects that sanity has on you

and of course, the resident evil games had me and my friend both going upstairs in the middle of the night accompanying eachother to the bathroom...

Eternal Darkness is one of the most innovative games i've played in recent times. Namely due to the insanity metre, how ingenious. Creepiest moment was when i "examined" the bath on the upper level of the manision with Alex. Also when i "discovered" the guy hanging in the piano room, the rope scratching noise was so creepy, let alone suddenly discovering some guy hanging there!

silent hill series is also good.

And an older game, System Shock 2, is really creepy and scary. A great game.

I never saw the guy on the rope, but I read about it....maybe it's better I didn't see it....heh
but yeah, same with that bathtub scene...me and my friend were playing at 6 AM and we both jumped

i'll check out some of those other games too

Quake two, there were a couple of really dark areas crowded by zombies and when you shot them the gun would flash like a stroboscope.

And WipeOut Fusion put the hairs on the back of my neck up a couple of times, because of the speed and the missiles blasting past. Fat rush, not really scary though.

Silent hill 1 scared the bejesus out of me, never played the sequal. Aliens Vs. Predator when you are the marines and you see the blips fo teh aliens dear god that give you a rush because they could come from above below or same lvl.

Doom with the mod to make it into the movie "Alien". With the sound turned up in a dark room, it's creepy.

Back when I was playing one of the first "horror survival" games to come out, Alone in the Dark. There's one part where you're just searching a bedroom, the door is open, and a zombie just casually strolls by. "Huh? Did I just see that? I'm not going outside." Sure it was a crappy super low-poly zombie, but having just slip by casually in the back was pretty sly.

Resident Evil: Dead Aim made me jump a couple of times.

The first time I ever jumped from a game was playing the Rescue on Fractalus by Lucas Arts. Tried to rescue a guy and a Alien started beating on the Rocket window. I jumped.

The next time was the Rocketeer on my Amiga. Made it to the Moon and found out who really was behind the Nazis... Then the Alien "split the screen" and you were supposed to shoot it. It was about 2:00 in the morning and I was tired. I jumped and woke my parents up

Silent Hill 3 is absolutely amazing, real "shit-your-pants" material.

Alien Vs. Predator 2 also is classic, nothing like walking down a dark corridor and turning on your flashlight to find a swarm of Aliens all over the ceiling!

I've never played any of these games except part of Resident Evil 2 (I didn't like it only because of its controls, and my brother tells me most of the survival horror game controls are the same besides Eternal Darkness), but I've watched my bro play alot of those games. Jesus, the whole first Silent Hill game had me fearing anything I couldn't see in the dark for awhile. Eternal Darkness was always fun to watch, too; everything from crazy sanity effects to the "bath-tub" scene that's already been mentioned, that game'll catch your attention real quick.

From my bro, I hear there's a REALLY scary room in Silent Hill 3, too...to avoid possible spoilers, I won't comment on the room other than that it has a huge mirror for a wall and has a sink in it. The way he told me about it though, I couldn't decide if I wanted to see it or save myself a pair of underwear.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to go with Eternal Darkness, System Shock 2, Resident Evil(remake) and...the Doom 3 Alpha.

Doom 3 because it was so slow on my comp that things just popped out all scary like all the time. Freaky stuff.

Oh...and the AVP games too. As Marines, nothing scarier than the motion sensor going off and not being able to figure out where the aliens are actually at...heh.

You mean the one where the room gets covered in _________ ? Fuck that had me freaked the fuck out. There's a lot more like that throughout the game, with whole buildings going that way.

I was too wussy to finish Silent Hill II...There was a whole thread about it on 3.0...

Silent Hill III looks like just too much! I mean I'm brave and stuff...but I hate horror movies and all that shit...I mean I love watching em but I hate the after effects...Jebus...just the same as reading Paranoia at 3 am.

If you're like me but wanna play Silent Hill then you should play it with at least one other person in the room...Preferably a friend who has beaten it before and can keep yelling at you for doing stupid things.

I beat Eternal Darkness about a month ago. INCREDIBLE game; second only to Metroid Prime for being the best Gamecube title to date. Silent Hill 2 is freaky as hell as well as the first one. The Resident Evil series is pretty scary sometimes, but Silent Hill and Eternal Darkness take the cake.

Gabriel Knight: The Sins of the Fathers on PC back from the early nineties. It was about a guy investigating voodoo murders and there is a part where you are sneaking around in the voodoo temple with really creepy music. I was playing it late at night and was just scared shitless.

I don't think I've played any games yet that truly "frightened" me, but wait 'till you play Doom 3...

Doom 3 is going to kick some serious ass.

I've got Silent Hill, but haven't played it for more than 1 hour. But I can tell that it would be a scary, scary game.

Doom 2 is the scariest I've played. While wearing earphones. Sounds all around. Monsters lurking. Awesome experience.

True, although the second half isnt as much scary as it is strange. It's scary mainly because of the sounds. They freak you out all the time, cause you never know when its something in the distance or right behind you... Also I ran like hell the first time one of the monks attacked me.

Anyone remember (I think it was called) Dracula for the SegaCD? It was all live action video, pretty good stuff. For really scary though, first the Resident Evil series simply because it was the first big scare for me. Second, and definately the best series, Silent Hill. Those games scare the bejeebus out of me, but I'm heading out to buy the third one tonight.

Also, honorable mention goes to Fatal Frame. When I read about the premise, I thought it was kinda stupid (You "capture" ghosts with your camera), but after playing it I have to say that it is genuinely VERY scary and a great game.

I jumped like hell for Enternal Darknes, but I was terrified of Silent Hill 2. I loved it though! I'm looking forward to S.H. 3 and I want to try fatal frame, if I can ever find it.

Goddammit. Any time I'm playing a Resident Evil game and a dog or crow comes out of nowhere. And the mellow silence that is abruptly interrupted by the sudden fortissimo of the soundtrack. WTF. It's just not nice to make me jump like that.

Also, playing Counterstrike and thinking you're in a safe place where no one can see you and it's real quiet... then suddenly you hear a loud gunshot and it either hits or misses and you jump from your seat and scramble around your field of view looking for the direction of the gunshot. It's so wrong and so evil. Grrr.
