Scary Video Games

With that holiday coming up which makes adults wear their bedroom clothing out in public I started thinking about games that Ive played which truly made me feel like the horror element overtook the gameplay. It also coincides with my purchase of Metroid Dread where Yoshio Sakamoto said that creating a sense of tension was one of the core mechanics they wanted to implement (and they did this quite well honestly).

I actually enjoy the tension in these kinds of games because when its done right it can really add to the fun of beating a level or a boss.

What are some of the scariest game moments/games you've ever played? I won't state some of the obvious contenders

  • Alien Isolation (fuck the Xeno in this game. If you haven't played it I highly recommend it)
  • Outlast
  • G.T.F.O (if you know someone that scares easily put them in your party it really does add to the fun of it all)
  • RE3 (The Original)
  • The Medium

The horror element of Metroid Dread is pretty well done, tbh. The fear from trying to get away from an EMMI hot on your tail and the frantic dashes you have to make for the doors... it's some good horror action.

I'll also agree with the shout for Alien: Isolation - that game was brilliant... well the first half was, sort of didn't like the shit with the robots xD

Outlast 2 (never played the original) is another.

I haven't played a Resident Evil game in an astoundingly long time, so I can't really say... but I remember those games being a bit creepy and weird.

Fuck me there are some scenes in TLOU 2 that are just soooo creepy. The hospital basement section and the apartment building section are the two in particular. The clickers sound is unsettling af from the first but overall I thought it was relatively tame. I do want to play Resident Evil Village at some point that looks right up there from some of the streamer clips I was watching back upon release.

RE2:Remake imo is the best thing they've put out recently and I'd even go so far to say that it even takes Village over for the horror element. That Police Station is the first few parts of the game is done right.

The clickers? 

They were a pain in the ass, especially when you have runners nearby. Basically cover the weaknesses of each other. Nice bit of tension.

Is this the one with the house and the creepy family?

Whiskey might have been thinking of RE7 (your quote is correct I think). RE6 was the shit one where they had three different stories but none worth playing. 

For me, Alien Isolation was one that had the potential to shit yourself (though never completed it for some reason). 

In terms of shit your pants moments, both of my memorable ones came from the original RE2.

1. After putting two crystals in the necklaces of statues (I believe) and starting to leave the room, a licker just bursts through the glass roof above out of nowhere. 

2. My bigger shit my pants moment. After downing Mr. X/tyrant on the second disc, I left the room and proceeded down the corridor........ only for the prick to burst through the wall right in front me seconds after I put him down. Wasn't expecting that at all. 

Actually, here we go. Between 1:47 - 3:55 for the whole second point.

There are a few missions on the last of us 2. the one you've mentioned and the one where there is a wrecked train and it's dark and smoky. There's a mission where you fall from a roof into some room. That mission is horrible as it's a tight space and nowhere to run.
