Alien Isolation is a game I don't think I can ever play again. The part where it really got to me was when I was hiding in a locker waiting for that little dot to move away and it wasn't moving at all. Then it hit me. The alien wasn't moving because the AI was thinking. It was deciding whether or not to keep looking there or try somewhere else. Never had a game scare me so badly.
I reaaally want to get into horror games, I'm starting with Dead Space 3. Yes, I know that it's not a true horror game, it's more action then anything. Though the fact that I can't play it for long without getting stressed, yeah, I need to start slow. I certainly see the joy of being scared, I'd rather not get mentally scarred right off the bat. 😂
At 13 I first heard of Silent Hill by finding the original on PS1 in a box. Never made it past the street outside after the monsters first showed up, simply because I couldn't figure out *how* to continue.
Apparently I'm very brave... I've finished Outlast, RE7, Silent Hill 2 and Alien: Isolation... Well... Not Alien: Isolation... But only because of a bug that's broken my game and I have to restart from like mission 15 or something... >:( But if that hadn't happened, I would have finished it...
Still, Alien: Isolation is the scariest game I've ever played... I've never had to sing "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming." to myself except in Isolation and Outlast... That's it. Even SH2 & 3 don't scare me as much...
Halloween is totally a holiday though =| Forbidden Siren is the only game I ever owned that I never finished, it freaked me out so much (and the level with the slow old man and slow AF shotgun was so annoying) that I just sold it =| some days I'm tempted to try again, but then I just go "hmm, Naaaaa."
I still remember renting the first Silent Hill game (yes, Blockbuster - remember them? - actually rented out Playstation games at one time!) and playing it at home... alone... in the dark... oh the mistakes we make in life!
SH2 ruined me. I was playing it and got to a part where you have to descend this staircase that seemingly goes on forever. Like I swear it took 5-10 minutes at least to go down it. During which a creepy foghorn blares out occasionally, the walls seem to move ever so slightly almost as if the hallway is breathing and the atmosphere gets somehow hotter as if you are walking straight down into hell. When I finally hit the door at the bottom of the stairs I had to turn off the game for the day. There was just no physical way I could continue.
I generally don't play horror games but im 15 now so when i waz 14 I was like hey I wanna maybe try one so i chose outlast. OMG I WAS TERRIFIED that game is awful (in a good way) but i did somehow beat it in like 3 days (3 days after I sat in the basement section for about a week)
I normally don't get scared during any games. Got jump scared during Until Dawn because of a freaking raccoon or something in a cupboard because i was so focused on something possibly being in the dark, i didn't think something would be in there. Freaking hate jump scares
Nice call with Silent Hill! I thought I was brave enough to try Paranormal Activity on PSVR! Man, was I wrong. Absolute paralyzing terror! Fear of the unknown and all that. It may have ruined standard horror games for me, but plenty more horror titles on the VR! Wish me luck!
You should do a video on games you had to take a short break from because of all the jump scares. I completed Until Dawn, but I admit I had to pause it a couple of times just to calm down a bit xD I resisted putting the light on though! :P
