My Scary Moments. (content, not character) What scared you when you first played through this game? Does anything still creep you out? I scare easy. I admit it. I'll jump if you surprise me around a corner and I'll be peeking thru my fingers when the movie gets tense. I love it. I willfully suspend my disbelief. I like the endorphins and the cool relaxation when those stressful moments are over. I try to put my self in a character's POV and I become intensely focused while playing games. (expecially scary ones) Are you still jumpy playing Diablo 2 LOD? I'm not. I think I'd have absolutely no short term memory to jump every time the Smith chases me down. Familiarity has diminished my emotional reaction to this game. That isn't a judgement on the value of Diablo, its just a fact. BUT...I USED TO BE! And that is what this thread is all about! We want to hear your moments of sweaty handed clicking, your manic potion quaffing and even those time you shut the game off you were so scared. Yea...we have a few moments in the Diablo series that we all remember, but I'll open it up to other games as well. This isn't a "Which game is the most scary as a whole?" thread. It isn't a "I almost got scammed for a ZOD" scary thread. (<-- That is the 'character' I mentioned in the title :wink3 I'll start out: I remember buying D2 at first release and immediately playing online with a friend. I was an amazon and he was a barbarian. We had just cleared the pit, we clear everything the first time through, and headed into the Outer Cloister and were clearing all the side areas before heading into the cathedral. We were talking on the phone, how we communicated online before vent, when we both heard "I'll crush your bones," or whatever the Smith says. I couldn't do any damage...he was so fast...my friend was leaping around trying to hit him. It was chaos, we both panicked, ran back as far as we could. Every time we got close to where he had killed us we were as jumpy as hell. It took about 15 minutes of corpse runs and tense fighting before we got him down. We both agreed: "That was insane!" Another: The F.E.A.R. Demo. I started it up at about 1:00 in the morning and started walking down that first creepy alley. I was trying to get familier with the HUD and the audio motion alert, when that shadow ran across the screen and the motion alert screamed in my headset. I jumped back in my chair completely freaked out. I peeked around the corner at the end of the ally and didn't see a thing. I was so tense and nerve wracked I exited the game. Too intense. I've never played FEAR again. :hide: Now it is your turn...Have fun.
