    Are there any parts of a video game that scare you? It can be a game you're playing now or a game you played in the past.

    Right now, those skeletons that pop out of the ground in Zelda Ocarina of Time creep me out, when they pop out of the ground and the music suddenly changes in a serene nighttime setting. What made it a bit scarier is that a lot of the time, I was simply waiting next to a town for the day to change, and then all of a sudden they pop up.

    Also, there's that part in a Rayman 3 level called the Desert of the Knarren or something like that. At a certain point, you have to carry an egg to place on a switch and you can't jump around when carrying it. When you pick up the egg some flying zombie chickens suddenly follow you and scary music starts playing, then they encircle you and start attacking you. There's an endless stream of them. I refused to touch that game for years because of that.

    What about you?

      that's from Monster Party. Legs sticking out of the ground. There's a whole bunch of them. I guess that's kind of creepy.

          When you have to play as Desmond in Assassin's Creed: Revelations and you have to navigate your way through the Animus.

          Okay, it's not really a creepy part so much as a part that tripped the HELL out of me to the point where I don't even want to play it again. Thing is, I have no idea WHY it tripped me out so much.

                  Yes, and I agree with you about that part in Resident Evil.

                    Nothing. They're just games.

                          This may sound a little crazy but pretty much any death Mario goes through but I will tell you my top two most least favorite deaths Mario goes through are both in Super Mario 64 and they would be when Mario runs out of air and drowns in the water and the other one would be when he sinks into the quicksand. Those two deaths in particular are the ones that stand out the most and sadly enough they still scare me to this day.:shock:

                            Wow you're totally right now that you mention it. The drowning death was a bit graphic. I seem to remember Mario holding his throat and jerking before limply floating...:shock::o

                                Although the game eventually got very emotional, it also got VERY involving, and it really sucked you in to the point where you felt like you were in the game, and anybody who really played the game knows what I'm talking about...

                                So if you played the game, it's like playing a movie, or a really really good mini-series, and it had it's "jump" moments where it sometimes scared me out of my seat. That game was no doubt "The Walking Dead". Never was there ever a game that has truly awed me like that. Others were cool in their effects and they had their moments, but not like this.

                                  the first segment of silent hill on ps1 is so strange, disorienting, and unsettling. the camera angles around a couple corners, along with the distorted, atonal, and industrial soundtrack are so perfect and help set the mood for an atmospheric and unique game. this game still makes me feel weird after all this time.

                                    In my mind, the ReDead from Ocarina of Time stand out as the scariest video game characters outside of horror. And what about Otto from Berzerk? That smiley face freaks me out every time.

                                      anyone play manhunt on ps2? that game gave me nightmares when i beat it...and i was a college student.

                                      very intense and disturbing in a lot of ways, but ultimately when you got through an area it was satisfying as all hell!
