Scary Video Games, Knock Your Socks Off! 5 Scariest Video Game Moments.
Video games, besides being a complete waste of time and a diversion to enjoyment of real life, can be a fantastic way to divert your attention if you're stressed or just want to get your mind off of things in the real world.
But what about those games that the entire intention IS to make you at unease, and is to make you stressed, frightened, tense, nervous, and quite frankly want to jump out of your skin? Some wish to appall, some just to take you on a frightening adventure!
Well, I'm going to relive a few of those scariest moments:
1) @#$@#%#@ SUDDEN DECAPITATION? NEED A HEART DEFIBRILLATION! (Resident Evil 4)
So this is one of the scariest gaming moments I think you can experience, ever. You're in a village surrounded by crazed villagers who want nothing more than your flesh, you are being chased from all angles, there is nowhere to hide, every corner is accessible, every window can be broken, every door can be opened, you have to be watching 360 degrees in this game, and just when you think you're safe, BAM, you're being torn apart by a ravaging lunatic with a chainsaw. This whole process can start and be finished in seconds, only leaving you wide-eyed, and nearly breathless. But don't worry, it never gets easier the next times around. ;)
2) ASSUME NOW THAT ALL CLOWNS CARRY MINI-CHAINSAWS, AND EAT BABIES. (Dead Rising)
Most people assume Dead Rising is merely a zombie game, and on the surface it is. For those who just do quick runs through the mall, they will never see the depth of this game, but not only do zombies infest this mall, but when the world seems to be at an end, the human psyche goes awry, and humans show their true personalities. There are crazed cops taking hostages, insane cult members, bloodlusting rednecks, control-freak military personnel, and yes... killer clowns. This killer clown in particular juggles mini-chainsaws (one of the games post powerful weapons, by the way), and uses deadly balloons to kill you no time flat. So next time you are at a child's birthday party and you see a clown, attack first, because no matter how innocent he seems, mini-chainsaws fit in very small places and hurt quite badly. :)
3) BUT MOMMY, I DON'T WANT MY GIRLFRIEND TO RIP OUT MY PANCREAS! (PREY)
That's right, you and the love of your life, at her place of work one day just relaxing, become abducted by an alien spaceship, separated for most of the game, only to find out later in the game, that she has been mutated by them and can no longer control her thirst for carnage, and you are looking pretty tasty to her. The terrorizing part of this section of the game is that she is screaming the entire time that she doesn't want to do this, but she cannot control herself, so add the guilt factor into this scene as well as you have to make the biggest relationship decision of your life; kill your love or let her kill you. I tried talking it out, and believe me, it does not work, neither did chocolates or flowers! :)
4) CALL THE REPAIRMEN, MORE WORMHOLES FROM HELL ARE APPEARING IN THE BATHROOM AGAIN! (SILENT HILL 4)
Don't you hate it when you wake up out of bed and realize things have changed all in your apartment? Like paranormal ooze is dripping from your ceiling, and gateways to hell are appearing in your bedroom and bathroom walls? Welcome to Silent Hill, most pleasant vacation you'll ever have, sit down, relax, die of fright. It's hard to explain Silent Hill games, because quite frankly none of it makes complete sense, and I believe that's part of the intrigue of the game. Just be forewarned, if you pick up Silent to start playing, don't expect to come back the same... or at all. :)
5) EVERY TIME I GO DOVE HUNTING, I AWAKEN A MILE-HIGH DEMON WHO WANTS TO FLOSS HIS TEETH WITH MY ELBOWS. (Serious Sam)
This isn't even a horror game, but I just dare you to not have twelve heart attacks while playing it. You ever have 92342 enemies running full speed at you all at one time, and 92341 of them are carrying explosives? Welcome to Serious Sam. Of every shooting game I've ever played, I've never seen so many enemies on screen at one time, or had so much adrenaline pumping through my body that my eyes leaked energy drinks, as when I played this game. The bosses are infinitely higher than the screen itself, the enemy count makes you run to mom, and latch onto her leg and never let go. Give it a shot... or 29304203 shots, it's going to take at least that. :)
