Scariest Moments in Non-Horror Games?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Scariest Moments in Non-Horror Games?

When we go into non-horror games we don't really expect anything remotely creepy or worse yet frightening. However, there have been quite a few non-horror games where we've run into moments we didn't expect to make us want to play with the lights on.

Like Super Mario World, where Mario reaches the Valley of Bowser. Quite menacing on it's own, but then we reach the fight with Bowser. As a kid I didn't expect Mario to have to fight someone who dwarfed him, with a roaring thunderstorm and hellish music in the background.

Super Mario Bros. 3 was even worse, as when you reach World 8 it's a perfectly painted paralel to hell itself. The floating skulls and background music (made scarier in the Super NES version) don't help. Thankfully it becomes less scary when you fight a rather unintimidating Bowser at the end (who seems to forget the law of gravity).

And need I even remind you of the Mad Piano from Super Mario 64? -_-

So anyway, what are some of your scariest moments in non-horror games?

Maybe creepy moments? I recall the space station on Killzone Shadowfall to be creepy.
What else? Using by mistake that item in FF8 that summon the Diabolos fight, that was kinda scary.
Hum... any boss confrontation when you feel overwhelmed by its power can be scary, like Lavos in Chrono Trigger when you are not that evolved.
Any boss in Bloodbourne without using the glitch or gridding like a insane person.



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

Isn't Bloodbourne a horror game though?

Actually no. XD Just a guy who notices surprisingly scary shit in non-horror games, like that level in Donkey Kong Country 2 where you're chased by a ghost:

His devious laughter if he touches you makes it worse.

The Bottom of the Well from Ocarina of Time really creeped me out the first time I played it, and the music didn't help either =P

Is it? Maybe it is...  I thought it was a Zelda action adventure kind of game.

Lol just that he made a vid about this topic a week ago



The introduction of The Flood in Halo is the best example I can recall. It had a horror vibe for sure.
