Were you scared when....

#1 Posted by RelentlessKnight (965 posts) -

the bathroom part came up and you first thought that nothing will pop out.. and when you leave thinking that nothing is special about the room, you stumble upon the bath and attempt to click on it when.............. the unexpected happens and you are scared the **** out that you pee on your pants or *insert AVGN joke here*...

I know, I did...

Yes.  Freaky stuff. 

The thing that chilled me to the bone was when I let the game run while I left the living room to go do something else.  The "screen saver" freaked me out! :)

That bath tub was the most scary thing I have ever experienced in a game. The entire game is so scary, not only by shock effects, but also in more subtle ways like the voices and screaming as you go mad. Fantastic.


I haven't actually seen the screen saver I think. Gotta check that out.

I loved this game!! Anybody excited about Eternal Darkness 2?

It's been so long that I don't remember the bathroom part, but I loved the game! I cannot wait for another installment!

(Spoiler)
The thing that I most remember about the game is when it said it was deleting my game save, and I freaked out and turned off the console!

The infamous bathroom scene made me jump the first time I saw it, and then again on my second playthrough (totally forgot it was going to happen!). It's one of the best moments in gaming imho. Your guard is down and you're not expecting anything... You know, it's pretty fitting such a scary moment should happen in the bathroom of all places.

Nope, games cant scare me

In general the whole game was creepy, in a really awesome way.  I especially loved the music and voices in the background.

Yes I agree the bathroom scene scared both myself and my friend watching. My favorite moment was near the end, after killing a boss, when the game said the story continues in Eternal Darkness 2. I remember feeling so cheated..once again both myself and my friend totally believed it...until the screams came back!

My memory card erasing was probably the scariest thing I remember from that game. Srsly.

Honestly, it was a lot of the subtler things which tended to be hair-raising for me. It's been a long time since I've gone through and played it, so I can't really deal in specifics, but I remember a lot of the more minute details which the game had tended to intensify the atmosphere for me rather than just one momentary instance. That's just me, though.

Hahaha. Before I even looked in this thread, I was just thinking "Dude, I bet it's gonna be about the bathtub scene!" Heck yeah it scared me, haha.

....seriously, people still get hung up on the bathtub scene?  I don't get it.  The memory card wipe was much scarier.

Or when it looks like the console/TV was turned off.
I was seriously pissed.

That part was awesome !

That was pretty awesome. I can't really recall exact moments, but I do remember that one.

I played that part during the day while hanging out with my friend. It still managed to scare us both. The bathtub jokes that ensued were awesome.

#22 Posted by jackgordon (53 posts) -

Oh bathroom scene... scare me once shame on you, scare me twice, fuck me.

It has scared the shit out of me at least twice.

#24 Posted by Plasticworld (108 posts) -

I played this game at a pretty young age. Needless to say that freaked me the fuck out so bad that I stopped playing at that point.

I never finished the game but the simple things it did were what got me the most. The crying babies in the 1700's America level, the ringing phone and knocking on doors of the present day mansion. I had nightmares for a whole week from that game alone.
