Doom 3 had some moments that make you jump for sure, but NOTHING did it to me like F.E.A.R and even more so part 2.

I don't know exactly what it is but......those 2 games especially the 2nd one are in a whole different league for me. Put them on a 32" monitor with full on 650W surround in a dark room and you'll think very differently about the world itself. :p

i would say "CONDEMNED: Criminal Origins" is the scariest i played, I got it from a friend and I was happy to install it, 20 Mins of game play and it was uninstalled. maybe the reason was the large screen and the sound effects (Audigy2 ZS) at the time that helped freak me out plus the fact that I was Alone and it was dark. (to be honest with you I can freak out easily)

and Doom 1 as a little kid freaked me out too i used to shoot like crazy and run to the other room that had people in it to calm down a bit then i go back to play again. LOL

Yeah HL2 scared me too, especially that one level where your fighting the Head Dogs or whatever they are called and you have to wait for the elevator to come down and its completely dark. Really got me.

RE1 and 2 scared the crap out of me. I remember once I had to get something from across the room and as I went back an Fing licker popped out of the windows and scared the crap out of me.

Bioshock got me a lil and then Fear was scary the first time but now I'm immune.

I have to say FEAR or the original Diablo the first run through

Also you have to be playing all these games at night in a silent place. If your saying they aren't scarey and your playing in the middle of day :banghead:

If their was an award for 'scariest game ever' it would have to go to Resident Evil, simply because that was the game that defined 'survival horror'. Other games have tried and failed to replicate it.

Everybody remembers the moment those f*cking dogs burst through the windows for the first time.....sheer panic and when the Hunters are released.....now they were sh*t your pants scary!

+1 on ravenholm and doom 3.

Anyone played either of the parasite eves? They definately trumped RE games by having a much better storyline, and better gameplay (and at the time beautiful graphics, especially for PE2.)

and a level where your girlfriend leaves you for a guy and another level for where your bf leaves you for a guy (never dated a bi guy after that)

dead space at 2 am when no one else is home and the lights out
i got really scared bc my cat was hiding and jumped out at me during an intense part:shadedshu

What about the final boss battle for "My girlfriend missed her period" ? This is how you beat it, you tell her your going to take her out (make sure where ever you go they have a flight of stairs). Walk all the way to the top of the stairs and proceed to push her down them by accident. This should eliminate the boss that resides in her womb!

GAMEOVER:rockout:

Than the game isn't as scary anymore...
