Dino Crisis. Something about being hunted by dinos is scarier to me than the standard Zombie and boogymen thing.

Silent Hill.

It's subtler than most survival horror, with fewer Boo!-type moments.  But something about how everything in the town is just so wrong really gets under my skin.

I can watch the scariest movie without so much as a shiver, but get me in front of a horror game and I become a complete wreck.  I played the original Resident Evil once, and almost shit my pants when the dogs burst through the windows.

Thats funny because im the other way around. I cant stand to watch something like Firday the 13th. But i can play all the Horror games i want and it dosnt bug me that much. Even tho there where a few times i jump while playing Resident Evil.

EDIT: Oh and horror comics dont bother me that much either. Blade is one of my favorites. But for some reason i cant sit through something like Hellrasier.

I get WAY more creeped out by old text adventures than anything with advanced graphics. Anyone ever play Uninvited on the NES?

I've never been a huge fan of the genre, but the original Resident Evil game did freak me the hell out more than a couple of times. I haven't really touched any console games since shortly after I bought my PS2... so I'm definitely out of step with the newer additions.

  I'm a fan of all things survival horror. Most of my game collection is horror themed.

 RE holds a very special place in my heart, however. Silent Hill is a very close second.

It probably doesn't need saying, but the reason some survival horror games freak me out is that there is a real threat of death.  You can actually be hurt, your existence can be stopped.  So when things come at you, you have reason to be scared.  A movie can't kill you.

That being said, I'm more of a fan of the psychological survival horror.  Namely Silent Hill 2.  I love it so much, but I hate to play it.  It answers just enough questions to force you to create a lot of your own answers, and the result is creepy as hell.

I have to admit that there are times when i do get freck out by survival horror games. Mainly from thing pop out of no where, which happens alot and i usually a dredging feeling when i play something like Silent Hill. But i can stand them better then Horror movies. I mean ive played almost all the Resident Evil & Silent Hill and while there very disturbing. I can handle them better then Hardcore Horror movies. I think for me it has to do with realism. I mean while the graphics on most system are very good. They just dont look all that real. I mean its one thing to see a cgi character have something pop out there stomach. Its another to see a flesh and blood person have something pop out there stomach or maybe its because its not a real person that it dosent seem real to me. Its pretty much the same thing for me with comics too. But i can understand why some people might be more freck out by a servival horror game enough not to want to play it.

I've got the game Prey for the Xbox 360, and playing that for any length of time gets me all jazzed up and shaky. It's an awesome game but there are all these things that just keep just popping out at you from every whichway, coming out at you from really holes in the walls, floors and ceilings... air. The whole alien ship is made out of people from thousands of worlds, and basically every place you go is full of repulsive looking things. Not only that but there's all this gravity bending where you can walk on ceilings and the sides of walls (which reminds me of Ender's Game) that starts to make your stomach feel funky after a few hours of playing time. I give up after being killed 24562469824 times by my character's girlfriend that has been attached to a giant monster, I lay down and get that same feeling that you get after spending a full day riding roller coasters.

These guys kick my arse every time
