    SCARY gaming creatures...

    So I have been thinking to myself, which evil enemys that we kill so frequently are actualy the scariest...

    I want your opinions...
    Was it the trigen's from farcry... ?
    I thought they were kinda dumb myself I was more scared of the lag that incured on my pc when I went into the bump map heavy room rather than the 2 mutated monkeys in the room...
    Also they seemed kinda... whats the word... unexciting, sure they can kill in one blow but they never burst thru the walls crawled on the ceilings and jumped from the shadows.. they were just on the ground or somewhere hiding in the bushes...

    I will cofess that I was substantialy freaked being dropped at the top of a waterfall with only 10 bullets. (the trick is to ignore the gun you are faster w/o it )

    Anyway...

    What about the flood from halo
    Pretty creapy how they kept falling apart and comming back after you shot them...
    but after a while you just got in a rythm of backpeddeling and shooting, switching to shotgun to blast the baddys... now the scary one with the rocket launcher that was freaky the first time...

    Doom 3... Looks intresting, not sure about the whole "whoops we axidently opened a wormhole to hell" idea...

    Half life... "allos" another of the same kind... Great, another small creature that jumps at my head and tries to eat me/zombify me. anyone seeing a pattern? the facehugger from alien, the head crab from hl, the little flood dudes from halo...
    Anyway I will have to say that I got the most freaks from this game just cause they came from literaly everywhere. but the zombies were just sad... I used to play dodge and smack with the crowbar just for fun. Another thing about the zombies... with the teeth all down their chest, did they steal that from john carpenters "the thing"? (there is also a doom 3 creature that reminds me of one of hte creatures from "the thing" the upside down head with spiderlegs comming out the top...)

    Thats all I can think of this minute, got any yourself???
    Whats the scariest creature in your videogames...

    Super Metroid on the SNES was the best game, ever. One boss is a dinosaur-like creature (Kraid) which is 2x the screen height, has 3 eyes, and comes bursting through the floor shaking the screen while the dramatic music comes on and then he starts swinging his claws at you and spikes shoot out from his stomach which can stab you and toss you down onto the ground of spikey vines. Killer moment. Another boss which I liked was Phantoon, which is very hard to describe physically. Anyways, it's cool because half of the time he is invisible and floats across the screen throwing plasma balls which drop down and burn you and you have to dodge them until he appears and opens his eye, which you need to blast a few times. He's cool too

    I just bought Metroid Prime 3 days ago. It's definately a cool game, but doesn't come close to the gameplay of Super Metroid (in fact, they took steps to ruin it). For example, you now have a scanner at the very beginning of the game to help you look for secret passages, in Super Metroid you had to find these things yourself until you've progressed far enough in the game to actually deserve it. I also hate the first-person view. I've only beaten 10% of it and I'm already getting tired of playing it. The game design is very good, but the gameplay and replay value sucks compared to it's SNES counter-parts.

    I think the only game that ever scared me was the original doom, which I downloaded {I think not even from the internet, but from a BBS}, and played with the lights dimmed down.

    The scary part was at the end of the level when you were supposed to take on the boss outside a building and I heard the big boss's steps before I got to see him. I was like "What the heck is that?" "It sounds like is getting closer", "OMG, 333334445555 arghhhh I am out of ammo!"

    mstwntd, I agree with you. Nemesis rocked! Resident Evil 3 was the best Resident Evil, they finally made it possible to run and they gave you a good reason to!

    Certainly an amazing title that was. Can't wait to see what's in store on RE4.

    Resident Evil: Dead Aim was an incredibly stupid change to the Resident Evil series. They turned a horror/puzzle game into a first person shooter, definately a dumb decision. They should've expected failure before the project even began. I would definately recommend trying out some of the Resident Evil games, just not Dead Aim. I thought Resident Evil 2 was good (it wasn't really scarey, but it was fun) and Resident Evil 3 was awesome.

    Never really been scared of any creatures in a game. Maybe if I saw them on the street in front of me but not in a game...

    I have some Doom 3 gameshots on my games website now.

    Hey everyone, I think it's about time that we cleanup this topic by removing the images and providing links to them instead. It's too stinking hard to read anything in this topic...

    Those have got to be inspired from The Thing.

    Sounds good, I cut the larger ones and replaced with urls the smaller ones can stay...

    Ya I think I said that somewhere else, maybe not on this fourum,

    Incase anyone missed it... the thing had infected this one dude and he "died" and some poor sap tried to use those cardiostimulator zapper things to revive him... when his chest opened up and ate his arms. so after alot of screaming and stuff someone grabbed a flamethrower and torched the body... but before they got all of it, the cadavers head streaches off and sprouts spiderlegs from his scalp and scampers away.

    anyway the same guy I think inspired the zombies from half life, the whole ribcage becoming vertical mouth with teeth and whatnot.
