Your scariest experience in vidya gams
« on: July 11, 2015, 03:04:35 pm »
Because I steal Facepunch threads.

Post what has scared you in video games, whether it traumatized your childhood or frightened you today.
Feel free to post pictures and/or videos to better explain and show said moment that got you scared.

Here is my favorite post on the previously mentioned Facepunch thread,
Quote from: hl2poo
I remember I was playing ArmA one night by myself. I opened up the level editor, set the time to dead of night, clear starry sky, left the map empty, and just played. I was walking around, RPing like I was the only man left on the planet (Don't ask). After about 5 minutes of wandering around in the darkness, my character says, "Unknown man at 200 meters."

I fucking quit the game right then and there.

and now for something that spooked me. I was playing Gone Home[Which I pirated.]which already has a spooky-ish atmosphere to it, but there is a point where you discover there is a secret hallway connecting two rooms. In this hallway is a dim bare lightbulb and a golden cross on the floor. If you pick up the cross the light explodes and it became pitch black. I was very spooked.
Though if you haven't I do recommend playing Gone Home, as I liked the story and thought it was beautiful. There is also a bunch of minor stories too which you can find.

Zombies in Oblivion scared me ****less as a child.
Also, there is a bit in FEAR where you hear a voice whisper "You don't even know your name". I quit the game.

The zombies in Oblivion could have scared me if I wasn't more curious as to why they didn't have dicks.
The fucking Slaughterfish though, I would avoid water like it was lava just on the off chance that there might be a slaughterfish in there.
Then I found out about the giant Slaughterfish.

Decay. Its pretty clear that it decayed off, soft tissue is the first thing to go, like noses and sex organs. Also, you do find one that has been recently killed, and they make it pretty clear that they ate his........
Anyway, can't believe I forgot that one jumpscare in Doom3 with the mirror. If you have played it, you know what I mean.

I was playing "The Forest" awhile back, spear fishing in a tiny pond. I got sick of waiting for the fish to come close and knew that chasing them around the pond would be a waste of time so I turned to my left to leave...

fucking perfectly silent feral cannibal with its face about a foot from my shoulder. I have no idea how long she had been standing there silently judging me. most effective unintentional jump scare ever.

Actually refused to play Doom 3 when I was younger because I knew it'd freak me out, played it when I got older and found it slightly irksome at best when it tried to be creepy.
Also this is totally off topic but holygoddamnjesus Edam cheese is good on toast, Gouda is also really good too

When I was young I came upon the scary maze game, without knowing what it was. It was the middle of the night and my parents were asleep too. I was so scared of the face I blocked it out with my hand as I looked for the close button. I tried showing it to my parents but they thought I was crazy because I thought it just happened if you touched the walls, not at that certain point.

My sister used to torment me with screamers, to the point that after getting scared I would avoid the computer for weeks. Screamers have that lasting effect now, I think I was traumatized by them. There was one she showed me once that was a picture that either was or looked like our house [My memory is hazy] that she used on me once. One late night on the living room computer I saw a weird bookmark in my folder and recognized it immediately... it was the screamer. I covered my face on the couch and actually fell asleep. I found out later that my Mom had accidentally bookmarked it and felt so bad.

Bubbadoo and Rhordri will know when I say this, because this was poor Rhordri's first round on Goon. (Or was it Hibou, I can't recall, mainly due to Steam chat logs clearing out.)


Disaster Round and the Adventure Zones on Goon. NUFF. FUCKING. SAID.

Seriously, for a 2D spaceman game about having a fart-fetish and killing silly antags. The lore behind the universe is fucking terrifying, like HP Lovecraft and Satan (with some 4Chan) got together and said, "LETS WRITE SOME HIDDEN LORE FOR A SILLY GAME!"


I was playing "The Forest" awhile back, spear fishing in a tiny pond. I got sick of waiting for the fish to come close and knew that chasing them around the pond would be a waste of time so I turned to my left to leave...

****ing perfectly silent feral cannibal with its face about a foot from my shoulder. I have no idea how long she had been standing there silently judging me. most effective unintentional jump scare ever.

They added new sounds into the game, they're fucking creepy.

Imagine just sitting around, gathering wood for your base, when out of nowhere in the distance you hear the faint giggling of a woman. Followed by seeing a whole horde of ferals (the bloody guys that crawl on all fours) go running by the side of your screen and then disappearing.

Also, I keep hearing fucking Armsy's and Virgina's screaming outside my base but I can't find them. send help...

Dead Money.

Between enemies that made such a disturbing, unearthly sound (and which would get back the fvck up if you didn't dismember them), the traps, the speakers, and that ever-present cloud sh|t, that particular add-on did not bring pleasant memories with them.
unless you are trying accommodate a massive pair of testicles or hiding a secret booze pouch, your pants are far too large.

Screamers still bug me, even though I'm not really affected by them these days I still worry about them every time I watch a video or open something.
I never found Dead Money too creepy, until I was stuck in the Casino with them, at close range they were a little spooky when I couldn't get away so easily, but spooky at best. Although I will admit whoever did their animations did a fucking great job, that just ain't natural and my mind just tells me to move the fuck away from anything that moves like that.

It was Rhodri's second round. Someone had managed to trigger the Solarium ending on LLJK 4. This was my first time experiencing it too with Rhodri confused asking what the hell was going on and me like I DON'T KNOW THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE OH GOD TRANSPOSED SCIENTIST.

Probably either the THING with System Shock 2, the entireity of Alien: Isolation, or when I played The Forest after pirating it being a law abiding citizen and buying it.    I got a giggling starved cannibal spawning in my half-built base, went off to find it, got poisioned, and then noticed the FOUR SEARCH GROUPS.

STALKER, I had no idea what to do and got so fucked up by the mutants.

FEAR, just all of it. I was so tense I would shoot at the walls and scream "COME FUCKING GET ME".
  
I just absorb happiness by osmosis.

FEAR did horror right. It had a very tense atmosphere, and its jumpscares were the end of buildup, not just there.
