The right sound effects can make or break a game. They set the mood and feeling for it. For the Last of Us they needed to give you that feeling of distress and I think they achieved it.
It sounds like the ghost from movie The Grudge
The Clickers sound more like the Aliens from District 9 and that movie got released by Sony Pictures.
I love this sound :D Fits the game perfectly.
Perhaps 'love' is the wrong word lol. It scares the hell out of me. This game is MGSEvil.
Yeah I despised the clickers. Give me runners any time of the day!
Probably the scariest kind of enemies in years, zombies shouldnt exist, long live the clickers :P
Playing with headphones at night I freak out each time I hear them made me jump a few times and the way they move is just creepy!
Those runners are pretty damn scary too...
Watching them stumble around as i map out their paths and hearing them mumble and occasionally scream to themselves so intense I feellike they could come charging at me at any moment.
I find them more scary than the clickers. The clickers can't see you but the runners just leg it after you whaling and sobbing! I had a pretty rough time in the boiler room at the bottom of the hotel. That place is damn scary!
I don't think those guys were runners or clickers. They were different, like in the middle of both. They could somehow find you without needing to do anything. Running around frantically. It tells me what they're called in the challenges section in-game. I just can't remember. Nevertheless, that part was ridiculous.
@brodychet, those were actually Stalkers, which are, basically, in between Runners and Clickers. You see, the infection develops through five stages: Runners, then Stalkers, then Clickers, then Bloaters, then Spore Cadavers (basically just near-death Bloaters that hide in a corner and release spores before dying). So yes, you're right, they WERE right in the middle of Runners and Clickers.
I think the scariest thing is when you encounter Runners and Clickers at the same time, knowing that you'll have to be quiet to avoid the Clickers, and also stay out of sight of the Runners to avoid a big confrontation is extremely tense. The instant one of the Runners see you, not only does every other Runner catch on, but the Clickers begin pursuing you as well. It was terrifying at times.
It's up there with Iron Maiden from RE4 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Or the nurses from Silent Hill...
Or anything from Silent Hill lol
not the most frightening sound in gaming, but its still pretty creepy
Definitely not the MOST frightening sound, but one of the most frightening I've heard in recent years, especially those unbearable moments when you're sneaking around to avoid one Clicker and suddenly you hear the fast clicking sound of a second one right behind you. My heart always jumps when that happens.
the clicking noise sounds like my boiler, when the heating goes off.I keep thinking there's a clicker in my cupboard lol.
Playing this game with one of those PS surround headsets makes it even creepier!!!
I can vouch for that! The audio in this game is incredible.
they were only scary to me at the beginning, then i unlocked the shiv skill first and from then on i make fun of them :D one shotgun to the face, and they are down :P clickety clack
indeed! all hail the shivmaster
Save your shivs for some doors.
I agree with ares I'm too interested in what's behind those doors to waste shivs on clickers. I usually just try to avoid them. Much easier said than done tho
well i'm good with the shooting, so didn't wasted many shivs and opened all the locked doors.
good luck getting many shivs on survival. Lmao I've had 2 and I'm more than halfway through the game. And I found one of them o_o
Is that upgrade necessary further in the game, I actually haven't unlocked it yet on purpose just cause its a lot more intense knowing you die once they grab you. I just want to know if later in the game if its a must to have.
no it's not (also later there aren't so many clickers), as you said it takes some of the intensity from the game, but still you always have some melee weapon or a shotgun ammo ready for the clickers.
raise your hand if, like me, you find yourself whispering while playing this game.... especially when sneaking around clickers......
mannequins from condemned imo.
Clickers + ListenMode turned off + Leaning tower(ground floor) = Best horror scene this generation! I love them really, It makes this game a lot more harder! Harder is better!
If you're talking about the subway area on the way to the capitol building then yes. That area is incredible. Hearing like 7 clickers as you move around was so unsettling. I was way beyond edge of my seat, my muscles were all tensed up and i was clenching my jaw like a madman. One of my favorite parts so far.
Try the College basement area, with sound-mode turned off and 2 Bloaters (Survival) o____o
No there are more creepier and scarier sounds in gaming.
Screw the Clickers - it's the Runners that scare the bejesus out of me! If one spots you and let's out that piercing screech, you know you're in trouble...
Regenerators are scarier for me.
