Favorite Horror Moments in Non-Scary Game

Post by Harry Sunderland »

What's everyone's favorite horrific moment in a game that's not overall a frightening game?

The best example I can think of right now is Ravenholm from Half-Life 2. That section really nailed it on frightening!

What are some more good examples?

Well I could cheat and say there are numerous moments in Spec Ops: The Line that are rather horrific but I've already mentioned it enough here hahaha :P

As far as other games though, I remember Max Payne having some trippy and rather creepy moments. Like when you were reliving your nightmares and such.


Also yeah +1 for Ravenholm in Half Life 2

- You've really sold me on spec ops: the line. I really want to play it now after you've mentioned it so much.

- I loved the nightmare scenes of Max Payne! I particularly remember one where you are following a trail of I think was your baby's blood in complete darkness. So creepy. I want to buy it on Google Play and sideload it onto my Ouya, now that that game has been ported to Android!

- We don't go to ravenholm.

That is a tough one. I really like the second act in Gears of War 1 where the wretches are introduced, and the razor hail starts. It isn't THAT scary, but I thought it was really well done. Plus, I just love Gears of War. :)

Super Mario 2 (aka Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic) is so brilliant but totally bizarre. I guess it makes more sense when you consider it wasn't originally a Mario game, but it has so many off the wall ideas including the terrifying Phanto. :)

In Pokemon Red one of the Pokemon in my party was poisoned. I had the sound turned off. When the screen flashed a few times as I walked around I thought there was something electrically wrong with my purple GameBoy Colour and turned off the power in a panic. Reloading the save still had the Pokemon poisoned so I still thought something was wrong. Eventually I figured out it was the status effect.

Speaking of Pokemon, who could forget the Lovecraftian horror that is Missingno.?
