What's a moment in a game that literally traumatized you?

Fucking this. What is it about hedge mazes that are so damn terrifying? Going through the maze sequence in RE4 gave me terror shakes when reminded of this part.

No joke, this scene traumatized my little sister when she was a kid. She's an adult now and the sound of a chainsaw can still give her an anxiety attack.

>> No.6388714

The sense of disorientation is very unsettling when you have limited visibility and are being pursued, with the volume of the enemy's sounds ebbing and flowing as you run. AFAIK, there was also NO WAY to actually kill the Frankenstein's monster. You could only trip him up temporarily, so it was best just to run in terror.

The Legacy of Darkness remake had an optional boss fight in that one "safe area" fenced off somewhere in the middle of the hedge maze, where you have one final showdown with Frankie and the dogs to kill them for good.

The Shadowgate series had a lot of scary shit in it, specifically its deaths (see pic related)

Beyond Shadowgate's game over screen shows the protagonist being executed too (looking back its pretty tame and played for laughs, but still pretty disturbing in nature) https://youtu.be/7vPvlKrE5nI?t=46

Shadowgate 64 is an amazing atmospheric exploration game, with little ways to die.

>> No.6389235

Yeah shadowgate 64 has a very creepy atmosphere, almost reminiscent of the fromsoftware games on ps1

I do remember falling through a cieling and dying in that game. Not really scary, but definitely startling.

MAP05: The Waste Tunnels in Doom II.

It's supposed to be a sewer system, but back when I was a kid and my English was really bad, I intepreted it as "the ruined/abandoned tunnels". And it seemed plausible: it's dark and menacing, with a creepy BGM. I felt really uneasy about it in general, but then I ran into the Lost Souls (I played Doom II before Doom, so I didn't know about their existence before)...

>creepy atmosphere

While I agree it's somewhat king's fieldesque, I wouldn't call it creepy at all. It's just quiet and floaty.

Waxworks, the developers also did Elvira: Mistress of the Dark and Jaws of Cerberus which use the same overall engine. I recommend playing all three, they're great adventure games.

It's amazing how bad the second SH movie is compared to the first (which as a "piece of cinema" was also bad but fun fanservice).

Silent Hill 4 is a good game with about every "want to replay remember that part" cliche thrown in. Giant escort mission, unkillable enemies, half the game is a copy and paste job, too many items too little space, etc.

I was 4 years old when my brother got ZAMN for genesis, I played it by myself and nearly died crying in the chainsaw hedge maze. Then 2, years later he got resident evil for ps1 and because of my prior zombie fears, that game scared the ever living shit out of me. My brother would babysit me and pretend there were zombies upstairs and told me to hide while he went to investigate. then he would act as if he was getting eaten alive and scream for help. I would just cry in the closest screaming for my brother. My mom said I used to wake up in the middle of the night begging God for help so the zombies wouldn't eat me. I still have residual anxiety anytime I play resi 1. Fuck my brother, that and he would torment me with scary stories to tell in the dark. I was a frightened child, to the point I was afraid to go to the bathroom alone at school in fear of zombies trying to eat my flesh while I was still alive. I love zamn and resident evil now, but it took a while in my preteens to force myself to beat those games alone and break my fear.

Super Probotector is the only good contraIII. You enjoy watching half naked sweaty guys kill aliens in the most unbelievable manner while climbing walls and girders? That fully retarded, man.
I prefer watching outstandingly cool robots which are a million times more believe able shooting aliens while climbing walls. Also humans can't jump hanging from girders. Robots can. It's so much superior to that ugly human version.

Manly action-men are cooler than robots, and Konami knew this, which is why Contra takes strongly after Predator, Rambo, and Aliens.
