BeefJack: "It’s one wuss against a world of fear. Join horror virgin Adam Harshberger as we set him the task of finding, and surviving, the scariest videogame ever made..."
For me, the first Fatal Frame is the scariest game I've ever played. It starts off pretty slow and I wasn't expecting too many scares from it... but HOLY SHIT THE FINAL CHAPTER IS TERRIFYING!
I was just going to post that. I played it with headphones, at night, by myself, and in the dark. I woke my wife up with my screaming like a little girl.
The first real scare I got from a game was from Realms of the Haunting...looks a bit ridiculus for todays standards, but the younger me couldn't play it at night
Not sure what the scariest game would be, but The Cradle level from Thief: Deadly Shadows is surely the scariest level ever made.
That level alone is scarier than most full proclaimed horror games. In many ways, it kind of reminds me of Amesia.
Amnesia: the dark decent. Nothing beats not being able to defend yourself. Only hiding and having to manage your sanity
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is by far and away the scariest game I have ever played. I actually squeeled like a girl on many occasions throughout the game!
This! and Clock tower, anyone remember those games? No real weapons, hiding in closets. Good stuff.
Ugh Clock Tower used to scare the crap out of me. Waiting in agony in a wardrobe not sure if Scissorman is gonna stab through it or leave the room... Also I would have to agree about Amnesia. Scariest I have played, even growing up on things like Resident Evil, Clock Tower and Silent Hill. I had to turn the lights on in my house if I played Amnesia for to long at a time.
penumbra: black plague was pretty crazy scary too for me i guess the scariest was the 11th hour or phantasmagoria...but i'm old and was young when those came out... hell, the haunted house in kings quest 4 was hella scary too
Siren Blood Curse.
one of my first scariest moments in gaming was RE when the zombie dog broke into the window......
Resident evil for its time did a fantastic job at building suspense because you heard the zombie sounds but didn't know around which corner they were. Playing with Chris was the way to go because Jill was a bit over powered. I wish someone would make a game with a mix of resident evil and amnesia. I don't like being completely helpless like in amnesia but did like the atmosphere and hiding aspect.
There are really only two competitors here: The Fatal Frame series and the Penumbra/Amnesia series.
Amnesia is good, siren and fatal frame are great horror games as well.
Condemned had me squealing like a little girl. I was shocked into dropping my pad once, broke my sholder button... Good times.
The first AVP when playing as marine. You can't tell me that wasn't scary, especially the facehuggers.
