Default Happy Halloween! What is your scariest adventure moment?

Seasons greetings!

Hope you are all having a good Halloween so far and have plenty of delightfully wicked plans for tonight.

In keeping with the theme of the day I was wondering - what is the scariest moment you have experienced in an Adventure Game?

Mine? The uncovering of the body in the bath at the begining of Still Life! A truly chilling moment!

Hi,

Mine was in the boiler thingy in Scratches and a person walked past! I still haven't managed to finish that game...

I second skeeter's post. I also jumped at the end scene of Scratches.

Dark Fall is the overall spookiest game I've played. From the knocking on the doors, to using a tiny beam of light to explore the hidden crypt, I was on the edge of my seat for most of the game.
But the scariest moment has to go to my first jump out of the seat experience - in Zork Nemesis when you hear the Nemesis' voice for the first time.
I haven't played Scratches yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

Huh...honestly since im AG'ing noob, i haven't been scared in Adventure game.
But farenheit has something...nothing special still.
If Silent Hill or RE would be pure AG....then i would choose something from there.

HI

My scariest moment in adventures was that I played Shivers 2 for the first time; the eerie music, the places you have to go to put a certain item, they were all very, very scary.

The Ward...now THAT was scary. Back in the days when electronics boutique was still around in the UK. It goes without saying for somebody who got a couple of quid a week, i promptly returned the game within the 10 day period, and tried to forget the horror. THE HORROR!

Pandora Directive will always have the scariest game moment in it for me: the Area 51 sequence. Getting stalked by an alien entity you cannot see, but Tex can "feel" every once and a while, telling you that the "hairs on the back of his neck have just stood up" every once and a while. Eeee!

Yes, that scene in Scratches was really disturbing..
Also Dark Eye has its moment. The scene where
Spoiler:
you wake up in a grave buried alive
was pretty scary.

Scariest moment for me was in Riven when I turned around after hours of solitary exploration and there was a little girl staring at me on the pathway. Reminded me of a particular scene in "The Shining."

Really nice topic idea.

Scratches:
Spoiler:
When u were inside the furnace or w/e that big oven was, and u see a shadow, it was a pretty good


Barrow Hill: (This was a true scare)
Spoiler:
When u go behind ben's office, and u keep moving, then BAAAA, a crow screams and flys, yeah doesn't sound that bad, but it was, because of the game atmosphere, and the moment and such. Too bad there wasn't much more like this scenes.

If Thief 3 is an AG well,the scene when I was in the attic of the mental institution and the "ghost" appeared,that got me jumping off my chair and untill the game ended I was still under the effect.
If Thief is not an AG well.... Scratches,I was in the boiler and I saw or heard somebody pass by

shalebridge cradle as a mission is more atmospheric than most entire games.

My scariest moment came from when I was playing Monkey Island; It was just coming up to the part where you land on the island, when two ghost burglars broke in and stabbed me to death.

I played the first Phantasmagoria when I was in 4th or 5th grade. It was my first experience with any kind of horror entertainment, and my parents only bought it for me because I promised to play the censored version.

Of course I broke my promise, and ended up being horrified and disturbed when I came upon the first murder scene in the greenhouse. After that scene, I moved through the rest of the game with extreme caution and fear, dreading the grusome scenes that I knew were to come. I remember making my older sister sit with me during the final chapter.

Of course, the game now seems absurd to me - mostly because it IS an absurd game. But it's still a guilty pleasure, and a favorite of mine. And it also initiated my love for cheesy horror films.
