It takes horror to a new level, because it firstly tampers with our idea of death. Then it unceremoniously injects a gruesome amount of disgust into a concept that we hold dear consciously or unconsciously (The idea that the body should be treated with respect). Thirdly, the amount of gore and carnage as the corpse is twisted into something barely human, yet is recognisable as human, making it all the more frightening as we can relate to the thing. Lastly, who wants to be on an abandoned ship stuck with thousands of those things?

Godawful? Like Mass Effect 3 endings? Or actual scary / disgusting creatures in games?

I can't say I am offended too much anymore by creatures from the burning hells in games.
I remember playing Diablo1 way back in the day as a child. I think that was probably the most unsettling thing to me back then. All those dead bodies decapitated or hung by hooks all over the place. =\\

Oh the Diablo II creatures were nauseating back then, especially the end of the first Act in the church. Or that flesh eating mummy in Act II.

well since im a coward ive never really played a real horror game. but i HAVE played 2 games that are considered horror games.

rule of rose isnt scary and is more disturbing psycholigically i guess. but the begining of the game takes place in a very creepy unsetling dark scenery which made me scared.

and ive also played ib. it has those old graphics like mother and the old final fantasies but there are some jump scares, a creepy story and the music can get scary too. a painting of a lady that suddenly jumps and crawls after you and a particular room with blue dolls are the pretty scary.

again im a coward so i might be on a whole different level.

I'd have to say anything related to my little pony.

On a game called: "Hunter: The Reckoning" there is a creepy spider-ish thing that has the hand of someone it ate sticking out of its stomach like it's trying to give you a high-five or something. Is it just me, or is that creepy?

Pyramid Head. Nothing scarier than having an invincible demon sent from hell chasing after you, and he always pops up at the least expected times.

Brings about this awesome theory that Luigi is a ghost the entire time yadda yadda yadda

Pyramid Head. Nothing scarier than having an invincible demon sent from hell chasing after you, and he always pops up at the least expected times.


Don't forget his **** tendencies

The fact that you know he is near, yet can't seem to always pinpoint where. And by the time you see him, you know it's far far too late.
