What are the scariest moments in Resident Evil for you?



Some days I just blow up.

Around the Network

Regenerators from Resident Evil 4! The sound they make and how they jump on you if you blow off their legs. Also when you first encounter them you don't the add-on to see their weak points so they really freak you out. "How am I going to kill this thing?"

Signature goes here!

When you idly walk around the mansion in REmake and suddenly a Crimson Head stands up.

Also, one moment that completely terrified me was in Resident Evil 4 when you enter the tunnels in chapter 4. You just roam around in an empty area with no enemies and the game lets you search hidden items a bit, when suddenly a loud noise happens like a metal grid or something getting smashed open and footsteps start to come at you. And those footsteps are FAST, I tell you, and they get louder and lounder but you see no monsters so you start to think that something invisible runs straight at you. But nothing happens, no monsters, it was all just an illusion. I was scared as hell.

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

Nemesis encounters, as well as Nemesis being around the area in general (semi encounter theme). The first Licker scene from Resi 2. The Axe-man from Outbreak file 2.



                                       

Playing RE7 in VR probably deserves a mention.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

I thought the Gamecube REmake was the scariest... Lisa Trevor.  Reading her letters as she devolved into a monster was creepy as fuck.



The announcement of Resident Evil 6 was pretty scary. I mean it was so bad with forced COD elements:

Jesus, is it snickering to itself, have a cold, what's that sound it's making?!

So that's why they made it first-person.

Anybody here remember Dr. Salvador?

That's chapter 3-2.

On topic: I'll go with something less conventional for the sake of variety in responses, so I say Invisible Enemies mode in REmake. Particularly when you return to the mansion and hunters have spawned. You think there should be one in the corridor around the corner near the save room, but you hear nothing. You think, "Okay, maybe I misremembered," and begin to walk slowly just in case. The next moment Jill's head falls off her neck.

It's in those moments in which you think that you know what to expect that it hits you really hard.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
