Good god, they designed her just perfectly. She's not just in-your-face scary, she's freaking WEEPING alone that echoes through the buildings. The closer you get to her, then the scary music accompanies the weeping.

The way her legs are cast aside on the floor and crying like a real woman, witnessing her alone sends the chill down my spine.

I'd have to admit no other games to date have scared me this much. And I play lots of horror games. Before that it was Doom II Monster Condo level (27). That was perfect too. The levels are dark, eerily and the soundtrack is just perfect.

Got this game for the PC this week but haven't had a chance to install it yet. Hopefully I can try it out this weekend.

have you tried thief 3? there's a part of the game where you play through an abandoned orphanage.... but it's not totally abandoned. At the start of the level you hear banging off in the distance. As you progress through the level and move closer and closer to the attic of the orphanage, the banging gets progressively louder and louder...

Well, what's the banging once you find out?

She's a very well designed "monster" indeed, the music that accompanies her crying and despair is fitting just right, but there's absolutely nothing scary to her at all, in my opinion. In fact I think Left4Dead is more of a comedy than anything else, it's only the darkness of the levels that make it seem "scary", the rest is just so cliché/stereotype and exaggerated, and on purpose too, I remember Gabe Newell referring to the game as an interactive B-Movie zombie apocalypse.

The one game that gave me the creeps on several occasions is S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, especially the X-18 Labs, and the forest level in Clear Sky in night time as well, but even in day time can be quite stressing, at least for me.

In Thief 3, the level that scared me the most was 'The House of Widow Moira'. I can still remember climbing the spiral staircase to the dome in that level shrouded in darkness and the eerie music!

Fatal Frame scared me more than any other game, and it's only rated T...

Alma was pretty freaky as well, and so was most of System Shock 2.

Have yet to play Left 4 Dead, but I'll probably get it soon.

Haven't played L4D yet, but I did find Alma pretty scary, not to mention the Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines haunted house.

I had a few hair raising moments in FEAR where the little girl would pop out of nowhere and dark shadows walking across a dark hall.

Haha, yep. Love the haunted house in VTMB. The shaking and exploding lamps and such make you really jumpy right when you get in there. Especially loved the kid's crayon drawing of the family with the father on fire.

Stiill remember the first time I played through and heard the ghost whisper "Be careful" right before the elevator comes crashing down. Such a great game. Troika was definitely the best game company that almost was, no thanks to Activision.
