    Hi all,

    I only really just started to get into games (so am a bit behind).. I liked the F.E.A.R. Series etc.. What games have you played recently (if any) that were scary?

    Thanks :)

    Doom 3. I jumped when one of those guys with helmets and long whippy arms ran up behind me.

    Doom 3 was shit so don't worry about that one. Huge let down for me...
    Silent Hill is still the scariest game ever. Full stop. <see there's the full stop

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. has some scary elements but they don't last long. Definitely scarier than Doom 3 though.

    The room and mood you play in makes a big difference to how scared one feels.

    (Doom3 had its moments, but only when i played it in a dark room on the big tv with surround sound...!)

    With silent hill are you referring to the original or 2,3,4? (I think there's 4?)

    stalker was scarier than doom 3?? LOL...you must have been smoking crack when you were playing stalker.

    last time i played silent hill was on the playstation ( PS1 ). It was to boring to be scary.

    Each to there own i guess.

    I cant think of any other horror themed games right now, condemned had its moments as well.

    The reason doom3 was good for me was because you couldn't use your flash light and gun at the same time.

    Loud home theater, Projector and a very very dark room makes for a nice doom 3 experience.

    The only thing scary about stalker was that it took 5 minutes to walk to your next objective!

    Condemned: Criminal Origins was a good one to play in the dark with headphones .

    Makes you turn your head from time to time.

    AvP was one of the scariest games I ever played. Been a Marine in those corridors and you start hearing those bips, freaky...

    Resident Evil when it was first released. Those flesh eating zombies gave me nightmares.

    Silent Hill 2 is easily the scariest I've ever played, even above the other games in the series. It's available on PC too :thumbup:
