These are the moments we live for. The moments that stay with us longer than the happy endings. The ones that frighten us, disturb us, or make us question the developers' - and our own - sanity. These are the Top 5 picked by Casualty Gamer.
there is a level that is completely dark except for a trail of blood and all you hear is a baby screaming in the background. i have never been that freaked out by a game,movie or anything else
I remember renting Max Payne for the PS2 when it first came out and I reached that certain level at like 1:00 in the morning and that TOTALLY FREAKED ME OUT. Mostly because I was already like half-asleep and I was wondering if that was real or if it was a dream.
These guys never got their head chopped off in RE4?????
but re4 was more holy crap did that just happen. were the level in max payne was more god i wish this would hurry up and be over kind of thing both awesome though
The confrontation with Andrew Ryan in Bioshock...that was genuinely disturbing, especially since you, as the player, were completely powerless to do anything. And the first appearance of the baby-like cherubs in Doom 3...that gave me chills.
post a spoiler warning for ps3 owners yet to touch bioshock.. THANK YOU
^^that my friend is what i want to see the bioshock movie capture....i want "would you kindly" to become a memorable movie quote, not just a video game quote
All lame except Pyramid Head and probably Eternal Darkness but I never played it. And the COD4 one is just retarded. One american dies and everyone breaks up in tears like the world is over. Some people forget that the soldiers are killing thousands of people.
What are you talking about with COD?? Its not the fact that some1 dies....its the way it is presented....have you even played it?
Yeah I have the game and played it. I see nothing particularly disturbing about that. It's not like I was so absorbed that I thought I was being executed. It just shows a first person view of someone getting shot. Don't tell me you NEVER thought of what it would be like if you got shot. It just as disturbing as shooting someone in a FPS, which is not, because they are not living people. In the real world, if someone from my country is executed, I find it just as disturbing as the death of anybody else. It's not because someone is from your country that this person is better and more important. Countries aren't a law of nature. They're just made by politicians. No one should get killed. And I feel the same way everytime someone gets killed, except if I knew the person in question.
Thank you, NBC... You know not of what you speak, my friend.
its not that its american its the feel the scene just because you didn't feel it no need to go throwing your negative nancy attiude thru here. I loved that scene. Stop being lame because its american whaaa you sound like your mother never gave you any cookies just ate them in front of you bitter betty. Sorry you comment just gets under my skin its stupid ridiculus and ignorent all in one. SOry but I have become dumber now reading that crap. You may want to o hang out at MSNBC.com
Just because something doesn't disturb you, doesn't mean it isn't disturbing. It may not have felt anything, but being lead to your death without any control over the outcome is pretty messed up. I realize that happens in real life, but for people that will never experience that (at least I hope they won't) it is pretty messed up to go through that in first person. It makes you think about that situation, which I think is disturbing enough to make the list. And I can honestly say I have never imagined myself being helplessly forced up against a wall (or post, or whatever) and shot in the face. Either way, I found both that moment and the nuke to be pretty messed up. Its not that they made me freak out or anything, but they make you think about being in that situation.
ok we get it. American lives are more important than anyone else's. Thanks for your wiseness. THANK GOD you were there because everyone would've got dumber reading my comments.
The person who was executed wasn't American. Where did you even get that from? It was the president who was previously in power. Hence the title "Coup d'Etat."
Reading comprehension must be something you lacked in your part of the world but you obv. Had a real hard time formulating a response to what i said. Being it that you totaly bypassed what I said to insert your own little I hate my life agenda. and ROFL its not even american and your crying ROFL. I'm sorry but you are sad oh its american thats why whaa give me a break dude you obv. are the one with issues here and I can also say I never Thought about myself being dragged out and fed a bullet in broad daylight but if you have it helps me more understand your stance on this matter. life doesn't suck only;y if you make it. MSNBC.COm forums that way. Or Cutters.com Did it even occur to you for one second where you stopped typing and thought wow he said its not that its american its the scene so why am i again writing american are more important you obv. have deeper issue then you want to say and looks to me like your the one with the issue. So not once did you stop and say wow i'm totaly not answering or responding in accordance to what he said Ill just push my agenda . SORRY TO ANYONE IM OFFENDING HERE OR ANYONE WHO THINKS IM GOING TO FAR
I agree with budget gamer. That was just ridiculously bad.
100% agree with Albedo being #1 of the list. Seriously that man is just freaking INSANE. Oh and GW's AI's were pretty freaky in MGS2. "Turn off your gaming console right now, you've been playing for far too long" I was like, "WTF!"
i was completely freaked out by psycho mantis in the first MGS....but i was 10 and naive back then
Silent Hill 3 takes the cake IMO for most disturbing. These two scenes are awesome. Mirror room http://www.youtube.com/watc... Mannequin http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Anyone for the transformation cutscene in Quake IV??? That was freakin' awesome! Also, a similar cutscene in Prey is amazing! Twisted Metal: Black actually takes the cake on this one though, I think. What was that terrible mystery game on PC that had really messed up real-time cutscenes? I saw it in a feature on Gamesradar or something once.
Both of those scene from each of those games was freaky. Quake IV takes the cake because you see the guy in front of you get it and you are shaking the controler to get free before you do and well...
i think the pc game your talking about is system shock 2
Cause none of those picked affected me in any way. It was more like a "ah whatever". If there's a disturbing moment I can pick off the top of my head, it would be hm..... I dunno.
I was kinda surprised to see no mention of the Resident Evil series on this list:P
Resident Evil 2 rounding the bookcase and the licker zipped by, I sat there for a couple minutes waiting for that bastard too try something. and then bam the very next room..... oh and licker jumping threw glass window.....and the crows.... how about RE2 all together.... what a classic!
never had a dull moment IMO. I was constantly waiting for the next thing to jump out at me. It never let you relax.
Practically every continent in the world except for Canada and the United States approve of Firearm executions. Here in America it is considered "inhumane" to shoot someone in the head (idiotic Democrates), but it's okay to send them into a gas chamber where for the last 10 minutes of their lives they do nothing but cough up their lungs, feel terrible burning on their faces and mucus membranes, suffer to the point that they WISH they were already dead, and die asphyxiated. Texas approves of the electic chair, so I guess killing a criminal by cooking them while they are alive is considered more "humane" then just putting a bullet in their head in which they feel the impact but no pain.
only 5 states in the US still have the gas chamber, and all 5 offer lethal injection as an alternative. The last person to be executed by gas chamber in the US was a German national in 1999 that had been on death row since before 1992. I'm not saying that I believe the gas chamber is humane or inhumane, but you really sensationalized it for effect. I find it interesting that we must force people to murder a murderer as a form of justice in today's society. I would like to open the idea of making criminals kill each other, and not dirtying an innocent man/woman's hand in the process.
In MGS2,when Colonel Campbell calls Raiden on the Codec inside Arsenal. "Raiden,turn the game console off right now" WTF?
that level called the Asylum..
F.E.A.R. That game seriously freaked my out. The little girl that would just show up was sooo creepy!
Sony announces PS3.

The haunted mansion at the start had me on my toes, and the snuff film thing was pretty disturbing.
