Anyone played Rule of Rose for the Playstation 2?  I'm told that was a pretty damn creepy game.

I haven't, but I do know a bit about it.  It's creepy and its a fantasticing story, but sadly, from what I hear, the controls are frustrating.  Might ruin the experience, but I say give it a shot.

Sadly, don't have a PS2, and never been able to figure out those emulation programs...   Question

PS2 emulators are still very green. I keep hearing good things about PCSX2, but I've tried it a few times and got speeds so low I couldn't call any game playable. I have a high-end computer, so maybe it was the emu configuration.

Anyway, I wouldn't bother about PS2 emulators now. Maybe in a few years, but not now.

I couldn't even get the PS1 emulator I tried to work.  Course, that was a few years back.  I'd been wanting to play Parasite Eve (which looked like an awesome game.)  

Then, weeks later, someone sent me a link to a "preconfigured" version of Silent Hill, which all you had to do is hit the executable file, choose a few basic options and then, viola!  The game ran on your PC!

Guessing whoever made the program just took a regular emulator and built something around it to take care of some of the more cumbersome config options automatically, so a guy like me could just go, "Oh, yeah, Full Screen, that's cool!"   Twirling

The scariest game I've played was the original Resident Evil, back when it was still new.  I hadn't seen anything like that game before, oh, and me and my friends insisted on playing it late at night when we were in the house alone. 


Another game I really have to give some props to is Eternal Darkness.  That game messes with your head like nothing else.

I got a fairly creepy vibe from Another World/Out Of This World.  Just a bleak, alien world full of creatures looking to kill you.  Bladed leeches, Saarlac pits, bloodthirsty beasts and trigger-happy aliens everywhere you turn.

I agree. And the poligonal graphics only make it seem more otherworldly.

For those who don't know it, it was a hit in the early 90s. The sequel, "Flashback", is even better.

Well, there's also Heart Of The Alien for the Sega CD, which a lot of people slammed (and OOTW creator Eric Chahi wasn't pleased with it) but I enjoyed it.  The movements are more clunky when playing as the alien, but I thought it was even creepier with a bit of added gore thrown in.

Anyone ever play Fatal Frame? That was a good dose of scares, as you went around capturing ghosts with this "ecto-camera" in an old Japanese castle.

Also, the original Onimusha which I have for my '360 (backwards compatible) has a few good moments of scare value.

Lastly, Bioshock seems to have it's effect on me: watching the Big Daddy's lumbering along, making those weird biological-type sounds,  freaks me out a bit. The rumbling of the controller does it's part to help the feeling too.  They're pretty scary  Buggedout

Oh, man, who didn't freak out when that bear thing first appeared?  

Funny story, I remember I died twice not realizing the game had actually started.  I figured there'd be a HUD or something pop up to let me know I could move the guy, nope!

When I was ten years old, one of my favourite computer games to play was "Carnivores 2". Despite enjoying the game, it also used to scare the crap outta me.

The premise isn't scary, basically you just go around hunting dinosaurs. Seems cool, right? I mean, you get to kill tyrannosaurs for cryin' out loud.

There were a few elements to this game that always managed to frighten me. For one thing, this game has no soundtrack. The only thing you hear is the wind blowing, the trees rustling, birds/pterosaurs squaking, little dinosaurs puttering around and so on. If I've learned anything, a situation that lacks in music can be a very tense one.

Whenever the creature would sense your presence, one of two things would happen:

1) If you were hunting herbivores (i.e. stegosaurus, ankylosaurus, etc), they'd run away.

2) If it was a carnivore (i.e. Allosaurus, Tyrannosaurus, Ceratosaurus, etc), they would growl and then charge at you.

At age ten, the sound of the predator's fast paced, booming footsteps used to freak me out. Especially the tyrannosaur's. What'd be worse was when the map said it was behind me and I wouldn't notice until a big, gaping toothed maw popped up in front of me.



Man....this thread really brought back memories.
