Final Fantasy 7 would be another, Castlevania Symphony Of The Night is another one and I think maybe Spyro just to name a few...

This game truly nearly traumatized me when I was little. I watched my Dad play through the whole game and I had nightmares for weeks; still it was fun to watch.

I remember walking down stairs when I was about 4 and seeing my Dad playing the first Resi for the first time, as soon as I was downstairs the scene with the first Zombie played where he turns around at the camera.
My parents flipped out and thy were frantically trying to turn off the Sega Saturn and TV lol.
