Old Oct 10th, 2007, 01:25 PM        SCARY GAMES!
When I was a kid I distinctly recall being driven-to-tears horrified by several games on the NES. I don't know what it was; perhaps the surreal, obscured way in which certain things were rendered with all the might of 8 bits. In particular, Sunsoft games seem to have been the scariest, specifically Blaster Master and Gremlins 2: The New Batch. Especially in Blaster Master where you fight your frog only he's mutated into a giant purple abomination with three eyes.

WHAT GAMES SCARED YOU?

Out of this World (and some 3D collect Nessy's eggs game I played at an aquarium) is why I have an intense and irrational fear of the ocean and deep swimming pools.

Anyone remember Hugo's House of Horrors? Scary shit when you're 3.

Oh yeah, if we are going to delve into post NES then yeah, Ecco has always bothered me. The deeper that dolphin swam the harder it was to play.

don't let chojin fool you. he still won't play the original resident evil alone in the dark.

Edit: the game I was the most scared of when I was a kid was when I was playing one Hugo game and I was captured by the witch doctor and I couldn't get out. Like, for months. That scared me and every time I booted it up I was like :< and turned it off again.

That witch doctor scared the shit out of me with how fast he could move.

Ecco the Dolphin is some scary shit.

OoT was the first game to ever scare me to the point where I would not play it at night. Wallmasters were one of the worst offenders. :<

Mario 64's chomp piano was pretty freaky shit, too.

Also, I forgot FF7. I would be on the point of wetting myself whenever I'd come back from doing something and find that Sephiroth had mercilessly slaughtered everyone in the area and then the stupid fucks decided to go LOOK FOR HIM. Don't even get me started on the headless Jenova in the Shrina Building, either. :[

Out of This World is still pretty freaky to me, too.

There's a game out there called Time Traveler that I'm still a little shaky about. It was an action game sort of like Dragon's Lair, only with fake holographs and real people. Not only were there moments of intense pressure, but when you'd make the wrong move, a giant, skeletal cowboy head would appear and chatter it's teeth at you before showing you your usually gruesome demise.

One death had a tomahawk going through your players head, in another a rather large woman broke all of your bones, etc.

Holy crap was that game hard to find. I remember always wanting to play it baad just because it didn't have a monitor and the characters looked like they were floating in the middle of the little cube thing. SO COOL.

I was ready for the wallmasters, but in M'sM the transformation scenes really got me the first couple of times.

Mario 64: The picture of Peach that turns into Bowser, and the Endless Stairway. I think I had nighmares of the latter. Freaky shit.

I couldn't play Doom with the sound on until I was well into high school. I'd just turn on the local pop station. Demons are allergic to Hanson.

All I remember from Ecco is those freaky alien things in the water that moved super fast. Those scared me .

Also, when I was playing Diablo for the first time at my cousin's house and the Butcher came out of nowhere and said 'MMM FRESH MEAT.'

Oh, and pretty much any game or section of a game with infinitely respawning enemies. That's why the original Turok always got to me.

I remember playing the hell out of the Thief demos as a kid, and they always scared the piss out of me. I recently torrented the first and second games and it's a good thing I was never able to play the later levels back then. :<

That loud screeching sound that Lavos made in Chrono Trigger (amongst the dead silence) creeped the fuck out of me (at least as far as early creepy video game moments go). That and Scorpion's Fatality in Mortal Kombat, due to being scared to death of skeletons back in the day.

Police Quest, Doom, Zelda II Siezures, and drowning in Sonic gave me night terrors.
