    Pretty obvious.

    About a year after half life came out, I tried playing it, yet failed epically as I just got scared. Bear in mind I was about 8/9 then. I thought it'd be a good game as my mum was constantly playing it, I realise it's an awesome game now, but, back then.. just the sight of a headcrab jumping at me scared me :|

    I couldn't play Resident evil for that same purpose.

    Movies didn't really scare me much, as you can predict them. Games however, I can't predict. I don't know when somethings going to jump out of the wall and spit acid at me [​IMG]

    Well, in RE4 just before me at the table my very first regenerator... I just continued playing and I really thought I end playing it after so much play time.

    But, I've completed it for 100% on the Wii, soo... [​IMG]

    Mostly its the sorta "jumpin outta the dark at your face" shit that gets me. I, too couldn't play halflife back when it came out though I was much older than 8/9 due to my first encounter with a barnacle freaked the fuck outta me. I thought it was a rope, man! [​IMG]

    Can't stand those black headcrabs in HL2 either. Triggers my arachnophobia and I just can't deal with that shit.

    Alone in The Dark was scarey for me, back in the time.
    Now, am not really scared of any fictional things.

    No, not really. They are exciting though; I can feel my heart beating while playing Doom 3 or Resident Evil 4.

    Certain games creep me out big time and I have trouble getting past specific parts of the game because of it. For example, the sections of RE4 where you fight the Regenerators. God damn those things creep me out...

    I haven't touched a survival horror game for over 16 years...but I wanna try it. I'm planning to buy PS3 and wait for RE5. RE5 will be my survival horror debut.

    Watching YouTube videos of those games are not that scary. Still scary but not compared to when to play it.

    Dementium kinda freaks me out...

    EDIT: I played Condemned 2: Bloodshot on my friend's PS3 and it has some scary parts. When we played it, their PS3 had sound problems so we can only hear sound a little. But now they had it fixed, I'll get scared even more when I come over their house this Friday.

    But I remember the enemy doing poo in the toilet [​IMG]

    The games mentioned here are not scary in the slightest, compared to the Penumbra PC series. Nothing in Half-Life, RE4, or FEAR scared me at all, but Penumbra is a different kind of monster...

    there was a PC game back in the 90's you got free with packets of frosties where you played as tony the tiger and the one of the cocopops dudes

    that was scary

    edit: it was quite a good game though!

    Yes yes! Definitely. The first time is actually Resident Evil DS and then the Dementium. I dont play games when I'm a kid beside Gameboy games. And Gameboy games dont freak me out.

    I can stand horror movies and horror games. I will use whatever or whoever is beside me to cover my eyes and ears.

    Im not a wuss.

    She played team fortress for 3 days straight, stopping ot cook us dinner & go to the toilet when I was a kid, she then moaned at me for playing a mmo for 12 hours straight and I just used it back at her. She got me into video games, letting me play mario with her when I was 3, although, the controller wasn't plugged in ¬.¬
