    There's no escaping this guy. Whatever you try, at best it's putting off the inevitable. When he decides to go after you, it's a matter of when, not if. He cannot be stopped, and you cannot escape.

    SA-X, no contest

    Mr. X stopped being as scary by the end of my first RE2 run

    Whenever I go back to Metroid Fusion, even though I have memorized every SA-X sequence in the game, I end up whispering "oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck" when I hear those footsteps

    The Ghost Lady (Evil Within 2)
    Related to this poll: folks should really play Evil Within 2 if they like spooky games. It's... it's got some shit in it, and the ghost lady might be the worst of those

    Chainsaw dudes from RE4 for me. Runner-up were the Iron Maidens, which *checks notes* are even more horrifying than I remember.

    They just want to give you a cuddle!

    Nemesis. Never played RE3 long enough to understand his mechanics, so he remains this horrific emblem for me. Mr. X is slowly becoming less terrifying for me; probably helps that he’s now in beachwear.

    Lu Bu. In one mission, he becomes so angry when you lock him in and burn him alive, that he glows yellow and runs faster than horses for the rest of the mission.
    Your best hope is to only attack him when there is a generic mook nearby that you can outrun instead of outrunning Lu Bu, and hope that you find another healing food before he finds you.

    Nemesis ends up feeling more like a rival if you play RE3 more than once. He's less of an inescapable doom and more of a walking vending machine for goodies.

    (I prefer him to Mr X tho, and cannot wait to see how rough they give it to us in RE3make)

    Oh brilliant

    Outside of jump scares video games have never really got to me that bad. But I will present my brother's reaction instead. In RE2 , original no clue about remake, you eventually end up in the sewers. At some point you enter a room or tunnel, and suddenly the camera shifts and there are giant spiders. Now being a single player game my brother and I were talking turns playing. He happened to be playing at this point. He literally screams, throws the controller at me, and flees the room. He was maybe 10 or 11. It was hilarious to me but he was genuinely terrified.

    The fucking dogs in RE1 scared the shit out of me the first time.

    There hasn't really been jump scares in games before!

    I wasn't prepared!

    By far these fellows from Ocarina of Time:

    They don't even chase you that far but I don't know of any enemy that evoked the same sheer terror in me to get the fuck away

    Locking down your ability to act and slowly reducing your health is one of the more terrifying things a video game can do. Even if you know you can probably survive it, the helplessness and giving you time to really process what's happening is some goddamn psychological warfare

    Amnesia had the fun mechanic where looking at an enemy drained your sanity, and sometimes gave away your position

    So to hide, you also had to look away from the monster

    fucking brilliant

    Honestly the scariest video game character to be chased by would probably be the DOOM Marine

    Yeah I guess more than a 5 word post explaining that they carried the mechanic forward would have been good :D

    Both games are great and terrifying.

    Both games are great and terrifying.

    SOMA has the only moment I literally had to stop playing because I couldn't go on. They tailored a fear specifically to me.

    Near endgame spoilers:
    When you're underwater and the current is going crazy and real strong, and you find that document that says beware of the fish with the lure on it's head, and then you turn and the NEXT thing says "follow the light posts to safety."

    ...and you see them branching off and know some are that fucking fish.

    I am TERRIFIED of deep sea stuff. I have a very weird love/hate with it where I watch Blue Planet and all that because I want to KNOW about it, but those things are literally my deepest, deepest fear.

    In that moment I just couldn't risk it and I left the room and looked up exactly where to go to avoid it, and then made my wife play it until we were clear.

    See while I didn't find SOMA very scary at all. I enjoyed the story, and the presentation, but SOMA rarely managed to spoop me.
