Video games have come a long way with ideas and visuals and we have had some pretty decent horror games over the course of time.
Growing up you would have played your first scary game, weather it was Resident Evil or PT. Games have been offering some very disturbing content.
I played Zelda Ocarina of Time and those zombies might be laughable today however back than when games looks like they did in the 90s, scared the pants off me. They seem innocent until you get too close and they jump on you grappling you. Something you would never expect from a Zelda title. Zelda games definitely aren't as innocent as they look.
Playing Resident Evil, one of the scariest things i ever seen and had nightmares about was that infamous first scene.. yes the now cliche zombie head turn that is used in so many other games now.
This scene sent shivers down my spine and RE was considered the scariest game i have ever played in the mid 90s.
However time has past and we have something that sticks in my mind every time i play the games and they continue to haunt me to this day. The most disturbing characters i have ever seen and still holds the crown in my Most scariest characters is the Necromorphs from Dead Space.
Yeah i know some are probably laughing thinking they aren't that scary however to me, they creep me out. The thing with other scary characters is the novelty can wear off after expereince more of the games. A good example would be the Lickers from RE2, they were extremely scary at first site but after awhile you can begin to deal with them like a regular enemy and they start to look like everything else. Necromorphs never lose there scare factors.
Its not just how they look, yes they look creepy and disturbing in many ways i cannot explain, however its more than their looks. They may be dead but they have the attributes similar to a Alien in the Alien movies. They are fast, they crawl through vents, they have bone tissue blades that can cut through anything. You cant shoot them in the head, otherwise they start fraying around the place like a crazy madman, they will charge at you like an Olympic Sprinter. You can shoot their legs off, but they will crawl on the ground desperately trying to reach you. These things are the icon of the devil. They will kill you in the most brutal ways. The people are either alive or dead when they go through with the Necromorph phase. Ripping and tearing the human body apart, creating new tissue to create its own weapons from the human body's own flesh and bone. These things are designed to stay in your nightmares, regardless if you kill many in your journey playing Dead Space 1 to 3. They continue to remain the scariest thing iv played in a video game.
This makes me even more excited to play the new Dead Space Remake, that series knows exactly what you don't like and don't want to see (outside of the MTs in 3)
Whats your most scariest video game character you seen.Last edited by Azzanation - on 11 August 2021
