As it’s Halloween we decided to do something a little different. In no particular order here are each of our most feared, favourite and memorable horror games.
Rhys – Resident Evil
“Resident Evil is the first ‘horror game’ I ever played. I was probably way too young and the minute zombie dogs started diving through the mansion windows… – I think I might be scarred for life as I am super jumpy.”
Alex – Silent Hill
“The game that scared me to the point where, 1) I never played it alone and 2), I never completed it: Silent Hill, PlayStation 1”
Kevin – L.A. Noire
“While I know it wasn’t even supposed to be that scary, there was a moment in L.A. Noire, where one of the new build houses from the Suburban Redevelopment Fund has a flickering light and you have to go in to investigate, and it was the dread that you just know something will happen.”
Arham – Slender: The Eight Pages
“I’ve only played one scary game… Slender!”
Jenna – Dead Space 2 and Resident Evil 3
“Dead Space 2 and Resident Evil 3! I couldn’t finish either one of them until years later after I first played them.”
Andrew – Slender: The Eight Pages
“Scariest game… well jumpiest is Slender for me. I spilled my water all over my girlfriend after she jumped then i jumped! It’s not even that scary… just jumpy.”
Richie – Dead Space 2
“Playing Dead Space 2 in the dark. I did it, but I won’t do it again, nor will I play Dead Space 3.”
Chowshe – Don’t Starve
“Actually, the moment in a video game that recently scared me was when I met one of those tree creatures in Don’t Starve. I was cutting a tree and it came to life and I was like ‘Holy Crap!’”
Ross – Dead Space and The Last of Us
“Dead Space was terrifying. Bought it, tried it, traded it in. There was also a moment in The Last Of Us that scared the hell out of me, where a clicker came out of a door and grabbed me. Totally caught me off guard.”
So there you have it. We are the last people you want in a team to explore a scary location. Luckily we don’t have to. What do you think? Can you relate to any of these games? We’d love to hear what games you found scary!
Happy Halloween and have a great weekend from everyone at Monocool.
