Monsters, aliens, creatures, mutants ... no save points. These are some of the most terrifying moments in video games, and if you've been playing Dead Space 2 lately, you know what I'm talking about.
Agree with the list, although the Bloodmounts aren't necessarily scary, just threatening (yes that makes sense lol) Deviljho from Monster Hunter 3 should be on this list. I know it's not zombie/monster-like like the monsters on this list but seriously, I've never been so scared to fight somethin in my life.
Theyre forgetting the monster from amnesia. That thing still gives me nightmares
Spot on. Amnesia is the scariest game I've ever played.
Amnesia is the best horror game in years, the only other game I can think of that comes close to the feeling of dread you get is Siren. The fact you can't fight back makes it even more intense.
Does the Dahaka from Prince of Persia qualify too then? :D
"The Scariest Monsters in Video Games" Read Video Games, Amnesia is a PC Game.
lolwut. Since when was a PC game not a video game?
How did Descent:FreeSpace get on the list then? Heh. Amusing comment, sir. =)
The Shambler from Quake was probably one of the creepiest monsters I can remember, that thing was freeky.
Nothing from Resident Evil? No Tyrant or Nemesis? :( "SSTTTAAAAARRRSSSS"
you're right past Resident Evil games had some of the most terrifying Monsters like Iron Maiden, Dr. Salvador, Crimson Head and of course Nemesis, it's weird non of them mentioned in that list
Pyramid Head and the diverse ghosts in Fatal Frame come to mind. The mannequin scene in Condemned still strikes me to this very day as well.
OMG! The Blinded Ghost in Fatal Frame scared the crap outta me when I first played it. She might have only been a woman with bloodied eye sockets, but she was SO. GODDAMN. PERSISTENT. Especially in the final chapter. Every time I thought I was safe, she'd show up. Every time I ran out of film, she'd show up. Every time I went into first-person view, she'd jump up in front of me. It always made me jump out of my skin. "My eeeeeeyes. Give me back my eeeeeeeyes" *shudder*
I feel you. * joins in shudder and turns lights on*
this dude need to play more horror game if he that was his list of scariest monster. The list is very weak.
The Witch and Flood aren't all that scary. Fast zombies are a meh (I find those bigger crab-ladden ones more scary). Plenty of other choices though... -Monkeys/Spiders in SystemShock2. -Bloodsuckers (or even Snorks) in stalker. -The Bear in Condemned. -The Gorilla from Doom3? Well, the first time. -Something from ResidentEvil (Dogs, Regenerators, Garradors, Windows etc.) -Alma? -Aliens, Predators -Everything in that one level in Dante's Inferno Crap, I made this list first and then read the comments on that site. Looks like I just wasted time thinking. =(
That has got to be the worst list of scary monsters ever created.
You forgot Necromorphs
Was just about to say that, lol! I'm on Chapter 6 of DS2 and those Space Raptors are fucking terrifying!
Those raptors are so well made by the game developers :I The fact that they hide behind cover and look away each time you point ur flashlight at them...
No Re-Deads? Damn, they were the only video game monster to actually scare me. You can't say that you weren't scared the first time you ran into one under one of the graves in OoT.
CONDEMNED (The first one) freaked me out repeatedly. Resident Evil (PS1) is also a must on my list.
<in> Just checking to see if Pyramid Head was there. Good. <out>
