Following the success of my blog entry this week (http://www.gamerevolution.com/blog/entry.php?id=80099) and the fact the comment sections has turned into a counselling session for people with weird fears in videogames, I thought I'd put together a top ten list of stuff which REALLY freaks us out in videogames. For instance, zombies aren't that scary. I'm sure I'd shit myself in real life if I saw one, but in games we've been expected to shoot randomly at human mobs for over two decades. A rampaging horde coming towards you in L4D may increase your adrenaline, but that's out of survival, rather than fear. By contrast, stuff like the Wallmasters from Ocarina of Time did scare me. They were new, something we hadn't really seen before and didn't know how they reacted. I think its that sense of the unknown that scares people in vidya games. That's why everyone remembers the scenes where the 'Colonel' starts addressing you, the player, directly in MGS2 - or the console-breaking bits from Arkham Asylum. We don't expect stuff like that at all, which makes it extra creepy. Hit me with your thoughts, comrades!
