    Hi guys,

    I am asking users what was the most scariest game they have ever played. I did this because:

    1. I was bored.

    2. I need a game that is not about killing things, I wanna be scared for the thrill of it.

    Thank you and enjoy.

    Silent Hill 2, Silent Hill 4 and Condemned. Although they didn't really scare me, they are the scariest games I've played. Doesn't really fall under not killing things though.

    jesus, got time for a list?! haha. In chronological order,

    1. Doom. Used to watch my uncle play it, bloody scared me shitless.

    2. Gex 3D - a scary bit at the end fighting the main guy (I think, was years ago)

    3. Resident evil 3 - nemesis. First proper horror game I owned. Still wont play it today, shit like that stays with you :laugh:

    4. Bioshock - was just jumpy and a bit weird at times

    5. FEAR - refuse to play it.

    Pretty much it. Played dead space a few weeks back, thats quite good, other than that i'unno.

    Some people like Half-Life 2 as a scary game in some moments, because the background music blended the atmosphere just perfectly. When I played the Sandtraps level, at the beginning I began to agree with them. But that was until I played FEAR, at first I thought I was on crack since it was that scary.

    hmmm . . . for me it really depends - I've seen it all, lulz . . .


    Play in the dark, no matter what - it not only helps to "draw you in," but you can see some things ambient lighting glare might cover up.



    FEAR is really good, there are some excellent moments - but once you've played it through, it's not as effective.

    Same goes for Doom3 - some events are done well by the atmosphere.


    Another good game to try out, Thief: The Dark Project - really immersive atmosphere. If you want something a little watered down, play Thief: Deadly Shadows . . . if for nothing else than to "experience" the best-designed level of all gaming history (so much so that PCGamer had a 10-page write-up on just this level alone . . . no other game to-date has recieved such an article from any major publication) . . . The Shalebridge Cradle - this is the only game mission/level that has ever truly creeped me out . . . it's THAT effective :toast:


    STALKER: Shadow Of Chernobyl has some awesome moments, too.

    Oh, and BTW - Thief: Deadly Shadows - you don't need to have played either of the first two, Thief: The Dark Project or Thief: The Metal Age, to enjoy the story. The developers made a point to craft the game for those who've never played either of the first two Thief games without hurting the title or gameplay.

    You don't have to kill in Thief if you don't want to . . . it can be a real challenge to "ghost" a level (taking only what's necessary, not moving or relocating items and furniture, no knocking-out guards . . . pretty much leaving no "evidence" of your presence).

    I sincerely recommend the whole Thief series to anyone who wants to try something different. There is a reason the games enjoy a vibrant and supportive fan community - even 10 years after the release of the first title . . .

    FEAR is terrifying. I'd say go with that one. I hated crawling in air ducts and turning a corner to see ALMA running at me on all fours. Pissed myself.

    I soo wanted more of the We don't go to Ravenholm level of HL2. When I played it for the very first time, the part where you first encounter howlers got me. The sound effects played the trick, HL2 was the next-gen title of its time, so the graphics did the rest of it.

    After that, FEAR had its moments. Each of these games take you when you play them for the first~second time. The first time you're a little clueless, in the second, you're always anticipating trouble.
