    Two Words - Night Trap

    I think i was around 7 or 8 at the time, my older cousin had rented a sega cd for a week with a few different titles. This game left a chilling effext on mr even after watching it bebplayed, i dont know if it was the FMV and the creepy dudes snatchig woman or what, but for at least a week i couldmt be alone in any house without being scared an auger would snatch me up. this was the first game that scared me even after itbwas off.

    Creature Shock for PC. MS DOS I think.

    Creature Shock (Game) - Giant Bomb

    Horrible game, as it is nearly impossible to win, unless you have awesome skills with a very slow responding mouse cursor.

    While I admit Doom 3 also scared me it was not the first. Prey was.

    I already had a fear of heights I was trying to overcome enough to play this game through to the end, the rest of the odd bits just tipped over the edge. Someone said they made a second one and i was like '**** that'.

    Nope nope nope nope, not again.

    The 1st DOOM.
    That 1 pinky demon that pops up from nowhere and started munching my face.
    It just throw me from my seat and the memory is still strong to this day... :oops:

    Clive Barker's Undying maybe was the first game that i felt a little on edge to be playing up late and in the dark I think.

    Another Resident Evil 1 kid here. Never forget trying to get good at the controls, and that cerberus jumping through the window and all I could do was spin and run. Think I left it alone for a day or two after that.

    Doom 3 I think... Although Dreamfall: The Longest Journey was really scaring for me too. I know that it's funny but sometimes we are frightened by completely strange things...

    It was definitely DOOM, the next game I feared was FEAR
