Nemesis in RE 3. That biatch always scares me.

Everytime you'd hear that gravelly voice groaning the word "Staaarrrss", you knew you were about to be in for it.

BootHammer3652d ago

"Staaaaarrss"...you are so right in how creepy that was. Another moment in gaming you never forget once experiencing it.

Yeah and Capcom said " Hey what can make him more terrifying... oh I know give him a bleeping rocket launcher.

Nerdmaster3652d ago

I always thought he was more annoying than scary. For some reason, Mister X was scarier for me. Maybe I got used to Mister X and Nemesis was too familiar for me to be scared.

And Nemesis was the reason why Capcom created the awful Ustanak. "Oh, people love Nemesis, so let's create an enemy even more annoying than him!".

Nemesis was absolutely terrifying! Another fantastic RE nominee!

I remember how literally scared I was of Nemesis frm RE3,once u hear that voice and he's theme song pop in,its adrenaline all d way. Definately one of the scariest of all time.suprised he aint in this list

BootHammer3652d ago

Nemesis was a horrific beast and the only reason he didn't make the list was because I wanted to only choose one character from each franchise. His voice and the music score that accompanied his presence would make you run for the hills, lol.

In my opinion as graphics have gotten better the creatures or monsters in games are less creepy for some reason, Dead hand in Ocarina of Time scared the shit out of me when I was a kid and the graphics were poor by today's standard.

Khajiit863652d ago

I feel fhe same way. Maybe because when I played the old resident evil games I was not even 15. The last of us on the hardest difficulty cannot be played unless you are sitting on a toilet though lol.

Man SHODAN from System Shock 2!! When she is pissed and went rogue -.-

The 7 Best Video Game Trailers of All Time

There's been a lot of great video game trailers over the years, but here's Chit Hot's picks for the seven best produced so far.

-Foxtrot9d ago

I never even knew this existed, I love him, he was fantastic

Just a shame that he passed away, I always wanted to see if they did one more Bottom live when they were older to send the characters off if he was still alive. I'd have loved to go and see it.

@LordoftheCritics that's my kind of list! I'd only add Halo Wars 2 and For Honor.

Versus Xiii original trailer, I was literally a kid back then. Shame it was quite disappointing on release


-Foxtrot9d ago

Assassins Creed Brotherhood and Revelation had some great cinematic trailers, the latter using Woodkids Iron. Even Assassin Creed Unity had a trailer when they used another Woodkid song which was decent.

Tomb Raider Underworld had a really good reveal trailer showing Croft Manor in ruins but showed it in reverse.

The Last of Us Part II reveal with Ellie singing Through the Valley and also the TV Sport where she sang a cover of True Faith.

The Witcher 3s A Night to Remember trailer which they basically turned into the games Epilogue set after the Blood and Wine expansion. He told Orianna he'd come back for her and he did.

Halo 3 Starry Night. Short but effective.

The Callisto Protocol launch trailer. The game might not be amazing but the launch trailer was well done and the theme song to the game "Lost Again" by Kings Elliot was beautiful

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, great trailer and really gave off that mystery, conspiracy vibe

Uncharted 4 Man Behind the Treasure

Deathloop Launch trailer with Pitch Black and the official gameplay trailer with Déjà Vu, two great songs made for the game.

Never even played the game but AC Revelations CGI trailer I saved in my PS3 and would rewatch on a regular basis, and used it as a reference for calibrating TVs when I bought them

This one with woodkid was dope
