Short and sweet, Whats the 3 scariest/jump out your skin/soiled yourself/not sleeping in the dark moments for you in gaming? Youtube links as well would be awesome!

Mine's are:

1. Dead Space 1 - Lift scene, right at the start when you think youve got away, bang! Pant solification.

2. Resident Evil 4 - First encounter with Regenerators. This will stick with me till the day I die! Those big grey buggers still scare the **** outa me.

3. Resident Evil 1 - An oldie! The first FMV when the zombie is eating the heart and turns round slowly. DAMN!

Lets hear it from you guys!

Silent Hill (The first one for PS1) whenever the radio would go crazy with static showing enemies around.

Fear 1: When you are standing behind the gate and you can see footsteps of people walking past, then the gate opens and there is no one there.

Fear 2: There is a scene where you are near a pool and some really messed up stuff happens, and you go into a closet/passage/?? to pick up some body armor, and the only way out is turn around, and when you do Alma is standing there looking at you.

I don't know if it's the same moment that firey is talking about, but there's a part in Fear 2 where you are in some underground passages taking ladders up and down between higher and lower levels. At one point you get on a ladder to go down, the camera swings down as you're turning onto the ladder and when it levels again Alma is standing right at the head of the ladder.

Edit: It was Fear 1 and I found the video. I remember it much freakier... :huh:

there arent many games that are oh so scary..
but in dead space 2 there is this scene where u enter an ice chamber.. and open a door.. then u have to move to left and there are same 2 rooms ahead..
but after u enter the 2nd room there is a VISION the empty chambers are filled with those weird monsters.. whats scary was that i had my headphones on.. volume was way up and i wasnt paying much attention to the game.. because i wasnt expecting anything :p and BAM!!.. i got goosebumps :p

cant find the scene on youtube.

1. F.E.A.R. when the body came flying through the glass into the hall. Scared me so much I unloaded an entire clip into a corpse.
2. F.E.A.R. ladder
3. Dead Space 2 when I was talking with my friend about how Dead Space had enemies in save points and suddenly as I walk towards a save point and BAM a necromorph hops up and attacks.
4. Silent Hill Homecoming when the wheelchair fell down the stairs.
5. Dead Space when I first heard those exploder guys scream. It comes from EVERY DIRECTION!

F.E.A.R 2 - In what I think was a school (or was it the hospital?) when it all goes very wierd and there's a ghostly thing teleporting around.
Was very intense.

Edit: This bit!

There were a fair few parts of Alan Wake that had me chilled as well. Whenever you were in woods and it went all dark and windy and the sound really kicked in. Mmm shivers! :D
