Thirsty Conversations: What’s The Scariest Game You’ve Ever Played?

Thirsty Conversations: What’s The Scariest Game You’ve Ever Played?

When was the last time a videogame made you put down the controller and sent you dashing to your room? When was the last time a videogame had you contemplating quitting the medium because you constantly had nightmares after playing? Seriously, when was the last time a videogame made you crap your pants?

Let’s talk. Do it here: The Official Games Thirst Resident Evil.

    There are really a handful for this list. The second Resident Evil, partly because I was young back then. Most recently, the first Dead Space, and Amnesia of course.
    -
    Dead Space was not straight-out scary, but it built tension, and even when I was alone in the corridor, I wasn’t walking as easily because I was afraid something would pop up. Amnesia, no comments. RE2, the scene where they eat Kendo has traumatized me :P

    For me it’s RE: Code Veronica, the first Bioshock and believe it or not, Metal Gear Solid: Sons Of Liberty… Remember the portion where the game asks you to turn off the system because you’ve been gaming too long? Yeah, that freaked my out.
    -
    I actually turned off the system and started rethinking my gaming stance. I thought God was telling me something :D
    -
    And I wasn’t that young either…I was at least 19..20ish

    That was freakish indeed, I need scizzors etc. I was more confused, thinking the game had problems, but it was a brand new copy, and I always keep my games like they’re holy artifacts, so it wasn’t scratched or anything. Kojima is a genius.

    the first Dead Space is probably the most scariest game i’ve played

    Wasn’t Bioshock scary too, though? That game changed the entire atmosphere of my house while playing! I kid you not.

  • http://www.starblindgames.com Christos Chatzisavvas

    It really was very atmospheric and creepy, but I can’t say it got close to how the other two freaked me out!

    I really like stand alone people who create scary games such as Slender. But the most scariest game I ever played is Amnesia.

  • foxton

    R.E. 2 for me, there was one bit when your walking down a corridor and these huge spiders jump through windows and start attacking you, used to get me every time lol.

  • Joshua Tompkins

    Dead Space for its great atmosphere and tension. I also found the first Condemed game to be pretty creepy. The original Silent Hill games creeped me out a lot and like others, RE2. I really want to play Amnesia, I heard it is super creepy.

  • http://www.starblindgames.com Christos Chatzisavvas

    Amnesia will make you shit your pants, honestly. I also want to play that Slenderman game that’s been very popular recently, and I’ll go buy ARMA II for DayZ once I’m back in Athens, but that’s another story.

    nightmare house 2 it’s a free game but it hurts my soul to play it.

  • linglingjr

    Lol for me it was the first bioshock as well and recently it was slender but that’s more of a funny type of scared than an omgwtfbbq scared.

    I haven’t played any game that’s really scared me, the closest I’ve gotten to scared was in Bioshock when you’re in that room where the lights shut off, and you’re in the middle of the spotlight and a bunch of splicers come and attack you. Fort Frolic also had its moments… The rest of Bioshock was just creepy.

    first off forget slender, SCP containment field is WAY scarier!
    not to mention its allot more fun too, instead of wondering around a wood looking the same the whole time your in a futuristic lab.
    from this gen though id have to go with bioshock 2.
    i absolutely freaking loved that game, every time you heard a big sister scream it just fired chills up your spine.
    ill never forget the level where the lights blow out, a spotlight turns on and splicers come racing down the roof.
    or even the level where your running from a big sister, than one of the doors blows open from the water pressure.
    thing is though bioshock 2 was not really *scary*.
    tense, suspenseful, atmospheric, yes, but not scary!
    its like every game this gen it makes you feel uneasy, but it does not make you jump out of your skin like the old games did!
    id have to put the scariest game ive ever played at doom 3.
    come on, its just a cult classic!
    especially back when it released, the tech was cutting edge, it was always so dark, and those deamons would come out of nowhere!
    not to mention the game was bleeding difficult, it was so hard to find ammo which made a enemy encounter even more scary!
    my favorite horror game though has to be the suffering!
    man that game is freaking messed up, i mean it makes manhunt 2 look like toy story!
    you awake in a hospital unaware of who you are, what happened, all you know is your in a hospital full of severed limbs and so much blood you would think you were in a saw movie!
    sickest most sadistic game ive ever played!
