What's the scariest movie or video game you've ever played, and what made it scary?

Is it Dead Space? MineCraft? Slender? Amnesia?

Or is it Halloween? Saw? Blair Witch Project? Hostel?

Amnesia Sure was scary, I went insane. (In the game)
As for movies....I don't know. I haven't watched scary movies enough to pick one.

I've never really seen a scary movie. Silent Hill had its tense moments but as a whole wasn't scary at all. Chucky was just entertaining. Older movies, like The Blob and Tarantula, were similarly endearing. As for The Shining, Jack Nicholson did an awesome job, but he was just too damned crazy. He turned a horror movie into a comedy with his priceless facial expressions.

The scariest game I've played would be Silent Hill 2. The vibration function really unnerved me when I played, and the hallways are also much more narrow than other Silent Hill games I've played, which makes monsters a lot more threatening. Ultimately I just stopped playing it because I got lost in the hospital and Maria kept dying.

if you want to ask scariest games, shouldn't you go on the games section? but for movie it's probably the omen or 28 weeks later

Penumbra, Amnesia and a shit ton of mods say otherwise on the matter.

VG forum, btw.

I just found those games annoying. Spent the game cursing that I couldn't fight the fuck back and then wondering why the hell the character was so mentally fragile that he couldn't stand the fucking dark. He was asking about movies (and may as well at this point include all media) so I don't think it belongs in the VG forum.

I've prefer "stressful" games over your typical horror game; games constantly on a countdown, where you're barely scraping by and then suddenly you lose and have to cool off before you can even TRY to play again.

As for movies, don't think I've ever seen one that's actually frightening. Cabin in the Woods is a great movie, so let's go with that.

I really don't know. BTW, has anyone noticed that nearly all the horror movies considered to be the best are all old movies? In recent years, we've gotten so much crap like "Dracula 3000", "Leprechaun In Space" and "The Wicker Man". I think horror as a genre is just declining. The only one I can think of that did really well with people and critics in recent years is "The Cabin In The Woods" which might not even count as it was more of a tongue-in-cheek horror movie. The same goes for "Drag Me To Hell".

Oh wait, now I can think of some. There's "Night Of The Living Dead" and "Noseferatu". Like I said, I don't really watch modern horror movies, because they aren't that good. TCITW was very good though, probably the best horror (although it was also part comedy) movie I've ever seen in theaters.

I'm not sure that I've seen any genuinely scary movies. I've seen plenty of movies that allege to be scary but they're not, they just rely on sudden bursts of loud music to make people jump. I don't consider that to be truly scary. I've seen some of the older movies, like The Exorcist, which I also didn't find scary but in the case of that film, I just don't think it aged well. I honestly found that film more humorous than scary. I didn't find the Halloween movies to be scary either, but I do enjoy those films despite how shitty some of the later ones got.

As for video games, I guess they're more likely to make me feel scared to some extent because they almost make me feel like I am the character, seeing as I'm controlling them. The first time I played the Resident Evil remake, I'll admit, I was a little on edge when I was walking around the mansion. I'd get a fright and get panicky when one of those dogs came crashing though one of the windows and started chasing me. I'd be cautious every time I entered an area for the first time because I didn't know what to expect. Games like that are able to scare more more than any movie that I've ever watched was able to.

Games for me would be resident evil: director's cut, amnesia and good o'l slendy. As far as movies, there not really scary, but my fav by far is "Martyrs".

So many scary games- Dead Space, Amnesia, Day Z, Fatal Frame. It doesn't have to be a horror game though. Fallout 3, Limbo, Morrowind, and Shadow of Colossus have even scared me.

And I don't watch scary movies. They are the worst.

None of those popular scary movies were actually scary and Slender, too. I have not played Amnesia yet, nor do I never want to.

Scary games, well I have always liked Silent Hill and back in 2000 I thought it was scary too :P

About movies, I can't really tell because I haven't been really scared with any lately. As much as there's much hype for movies like Paranormal Activity/Saw and whatnot, I still don't find them all that scary.

Dead Silence is probably the closest to a legit scary movie i'd say I've seen in recent years. There are a couple of scenes that just hammer right on your childhood fears, it's awesome.

Movies don't really tend to scare me all that much. I suppose that The Village was pretty good, but only because of the eerie feeling that it managed to hold up through the entire film. Saw doesn't really scare me as much as it does intrigue my curiosity. The Cube movies were pretty good though; they had the same element of eeriness that The Village did.

Games scare me a lot more than movies mainly because the interactivity makes you feel like you are actually in danger. I think that Amnesia, and a few of the Half-Life 2 mods (The House, etc) were pretty scary. I can honestly say that I am eagerly awaiting the release of the second Amnesia game though.
