condemned criminal origins scared the pants off me when i first played it

Alan Wake. The environment, story, atmosphere, and ambience was really creepy. Once in a while the taken will jump at you from no where as well. Definitely, the creepiest game I've played since Silent Hill on the PS1

Easy. The only right answer is Dead Space.

This! Not that it was "scary" per se; however, it definitely makes you jump. Especially, if you are playing in the dark with great surround sound. ;)

Condemned. It has such a creepy environment. Excellent game, one of my favs.

F.E.A.R. is the only game that has made me jump

I haven't played any scary games. The creepiest game I've played is probably Bioshock.

Creepy =/= scary, but I'll give you some for creepy though.

Dante's Inferno. At first, I wanted to stop playing like 30 minutes in, but I got used to it.

The glyphs from Assassin's Creed 2. The general atmosphere and nature of them are just creepy.

One of the best games I've ever played (2 dlcs in mind) would be my personal GOTY if it weren't for Red Dead Redemption but I can't say it was ever scary. It was tense at points though.

Dead Space.. great great game, scary atmosphere.. simo98088
Yeah, dead space for the setting / environment of the game
#14 Posted by zombiejonny (8277 posts) -

im gonna have to say either FEAR or condemned criminal origins. They both have moments where things just happen suddenly and you jump.

#15 Posted by JoeJoeLaker (704 posts) -
Not even close, Games aren't even scary, But FEAR2 had to be the scariest game ever. That little girl hiding in every corner, BlairWitch style.

I agree (console wise) but there is a game on pc called ambiense or something like that ( is a new game) thats pretty creppy too.

Never really played a scary game on the Xbox 360. I have had some pretty scary times playing Resident Evil and Silent hill on 6th gen consoles.
#22 Posted by EzekyleAbadon (1387 posts) -

Civilization Revolution, the pygmies are scary as hell.

Seriously though, although they are not scary Dead Space and Bioshock is the closest thing you get.

Dead space

Yup. This. I would also recommend the Condemned series. Great games with the right amount of tension and they're only like $7-10 each.

Condemned and Bioshock 1 were pretty creepy... just the atmosphere and knowing the environments. Both great games.
#28 Posted by DBIZMO (580 posts) -

I found F.E.A.R pretty scary. It kinda makes you jump in some parts of the game and I like the paranormal and psychological feel of it.

Since the TC is asking for peoples opinions there is no right answer. Dead space was really tense and made me jump a few times. F.E.A.R 1&2 were pretty good, alma made me jump a couple times. The Condemned series is really good, although I didn't find them to be scary.

FEAR,DEFINITELY...

#31 Posted by MexicanNinja8 (306 posts) -

Dead Space, F.E.A.R was just another fps for me and if your scared of Alan Wake your a panzy

#32 Posted by Patrickbrown56 (887 posts) -

King Kong actually scared me/made me jump when I played it.... Yeah I went real old school.

Bioshock was probably the scariest for me though. Just the crazy people and what not, really really hard time playing through it for me. I don't enjoy being scared so I tend to avoid scary games and actually didn't even purchase/play Bioshock 2.

I was thinking that when I saw the thread, it was one of the scariest games I've played in quite a few years. I can't wait for part two.

On 360, Metro 2033. Utter terrifying latter on in the Library.

#35 Posted by speedfog (2846 posts) -

Condemned and a bit F.E.A.R.

Im playing through Dead Space for the third time now to get Epic Tier 3 Engineer and it still scares the crap out of me. Scariest game, though? Hard to say
#37 Posted by MathMattS (4002 posts) -

The scariest game I've ever played on the 360 would have to be Alan Wake. That game made me wig out so bad. I was constantly jumping.

Hour of Victory.. scared the sh*t out of me :o

#39 Posted by vashkey (33666 posts) -
Dead Space was the only game on the 360 that ever scared me.
#40 Posted by JasonDarksavior (9325 posts) -

Condemned 2 scared me more.

I think Dead Space, but I don't get scared really. But if I had to name one it'd probably be Dead Space. It was eerie and I really liked it. But for me the fear was tension created when they started piling in at me and I'm going "oh great, what do I do now?"

Dead Space was pretty cool when I played it.

Shame I don't have it on my Gamertag to prove that I did play it.
