    This may sound cheesy but it's quite old.

    May be too old for all you youngsters. :p

    I honestly didn't find resident evil 4 to be scarey in the slightest, however i found dead space quite creepy and jumpy, though i'm really too old to get scared, but i can still be jumped! :laugh:

    The scariest moment in a game I have ever seen is in Doom 3. You turn the corner with your flashlight, the screen turns red, a screaming sound comes from the speakers....and your staring at yourself in a bathroom mirror. :roll:

    Nocturne. About 8 years ago...so most of you probably never heard of it ;) Definitely some "Oh Sh!t" moments in that one...

    For me, its Doom 3. Man that game was creepy, especially playing it at midnight with all the lights off and alone in my basement. I played through that game several times and it still scared the sh!t out of me.

    FEAR no doubt. Very scary when in a dark room.

    Doom3 was crazy scary for me. I used to play it after work at midnight with no lights and it scared the crap out of me.

    Fear 3 looks to have the current title imo. Should be a great shooter and thriller! :toast:

    Probably Doom 3. Some moments of the Silent Hill and Resident Evil series were scary also.

    Silent Hill 3...
    Doom 3. Damn Sometimes I had to take breaks to calm my heart down:eek: I'm not a person thats easily scared, but some moments you just freaked out.

    F.E.A.R. has its moments with Alma... other than that, it's not really scary.

    Oh, and may I suggest Half Life 2 Episode two (I think). The part where you are in the basement, the light goes out and suddenly you are surrounded by zombies...

    Being scared is all about moments though, only way to make someone truely scared for a length of period without that fear dwindling away is probably to threaten their life.

    I found myself running from one lighted area charing my flashlight enough to hopefully make it to the next. And would refuse unless it was a must to move through dark without that thing on.

    Then when you have so many visions you start questioning how real they are. I remember finding those ones that turn invisible. He was on the wall and electricity was coming off him. I thought it was some f'ed up dream. He even jumped off the wall and hit me then vanished. And even then I'm still thinking, "nah this isn't real".

    When a game plays with your mind like that, thats just scary. Plus gotta give it a nod for venting my frustrations by nailing enemies to wall in funny ways.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
    Resident Evil

    and that's all folks...
    Doom 3 used to scare me but not anymore.

    For those of you scared of S.T.A.L.K.E.R., check this video out

    I play the Oblivion Lost mod which really enhances STALKER. It's a little more scarier because controllers are a bitch to kill, and they appear above ground. Sometimes a controller will attack a specific area in the game (I ran into one at the Bar, and I hear of them attacking the Freedom base). Blowouts blow... random radiation storms that kill you if you don't find shelter.

    STALKER messes with my mind a bit. I keep hearing bloodsuckers/snorks that aren't there.

    I think its the very last level of the original FEAR where you have to run back out of that factory or w/e it is (been a while since I beat it) that scared the shit out of me the most with all those souls chasing after you. Sent shivers down my fucking spine man. Creeps me out thinking about it to this day.

    Heres the vid
