    I had play the FEAR , and it was not that scary , there was at list a balance between the scary part and gameplay .

    The FEAR 2 demo are total crap .
    Its like the programmers to deliberately sabotage the player , by causing panic with out reason .
    What good are in it ?? if the player looses his concentration from the true action,
    FEAR 2 looks like one bad artificial dreamland , than action game.

    I prefer to feel FEAR because of a more talented enemy than me .
    If i ever need an artificial dreamland , i will rent a Dracula movie . :D

    Painkiller is mostly run & gun, it's not really the scary type.

    Manhunt wasn't too bad (except for the pigman, shitted my trunks.)

    There was a FEAR 2 Gameplay vid that made me shit myself (I seriosuly don't like hospitals with loads of blood on walls and lights turning on and off.)

    There it is, I really couldn't watch it properly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoZZFhC_zKE

    But thats not really what the discussion is about. Fear by enemy's skill can be any FPS, but would almost have to be online as bots aren't anything amazing. Although really FEAR had the best game AI I have seen to date.

    F.E.A.R. was pretty scary, but Condemned 2 have a bit more scary atmosphere overall.

    Bioshock was also pretty creepy, but it wasn't scary.

    S.T.A.LK.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl is about the scariest I could stomach. I had to play with the headphones sitting on the desk in some places though because the background sound was enough to make me not want to move. XD

    But, that's coming from me who quit the original Halo when he ran into "the flood" until working up enough nerve to play it through several months later. XD


    I'm a wussy, I know. :roll:

    Doom3... I haven't even finished it :D

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow Of Chernobyl will probably be scarier than Doom3, I haven't played it much yet.

    i can't believe only one other person said System Shock 2. i still haven't finished that game. Doom3 had its moment too, though once you have enough adrenaline in your body, your fear subsides and you gun your way around, at least that's how i HAD to play it.

    Condemned made you feel like you had no chance. Fear was just baby stuff.

    Doom 3 was scary in parts. Especially at the very first when everyone is screaming over the radio and in Hell. Both of those scared the crap out of me. Fear works on certain peoples fear of creepy little girls, I have that fear.

    I tell you another one that scared the crap outta me. Aliens vs Predator and AVP2.

    creppy little girls are creepy.

    One of my friends kids is like that, she loves rubbing dirt in her hair (which gives it a thicker, medusa snake-hair look) and running on all fours making growling noises.
    kids going to be scary when shes older.
