Am I the only one who likes these videos? I get scared easy ;)
The game is Haunted Memories, it's a slender man game. Good video anyone know of other videos like this one??

@Jimn_tonic: I agree. However it's pretty much impossible to create real fear, when the person you are trying to scare is someone who has complete control of the situation (ie with a video game, player can simply pause/turn off and walk away) it's impossible to build tension in said person, where as jump scares are instant and therefor more effective for media.
I guess the only way to have anything close to real fear work in a video game is to slowly start to take away the players control, have buttons that are normally most commonly used no longer do anything, same with the start/pause button (though it still doesn't stop people from been able to just switch the machine off), take there control away and it might be possible, or it could simply make them angry and stop playing altogether.
That's the problem I have with most horror flicks. When you get past the jump scares (which pretty much startles anyone because of your sympathetic nervous system), you question whether or not the story itself is suspenseful or scary in itself...Speaking of which, the Paranormal Activity movies are overrated.
