I can't. Gigantic chicken, need to grow a pair, I know.
I love the horror genre, and an evening watching a scary movie, abusing my husband's arm is a fine way to pass a slow night. Or, watching him play through Dead Space 1 & 2. It's spooky business, but enjoyable all the same. But I can't do horror games. I think this was brought up on a bombcast, but something about you being the one who has to walk down that dark hall, or turn that corner just crosses that line. I watched a bit of Slender gameplay tonight (thanks to Mr. Klepek's lastest article) in the dark, with headphones on and my cat gave my leg a head-butt in the middle of it. Maaaan. I can't even watch someone else be freaked out without freaking out.
Anyway, what are some of your most memorable game scare moments? Or which game made you throw down the controller or escape to the desktop with a "fuck no."?
