Creepiest moments from non-horror games.

    So a huge problem with horror games is that they seem repetitive, predictable and for some games too much focused on action over the actual horror, a problem Resident Evil had before RE7. However sometimes the best of the creepiest moments don't come from horror games, they come from non-horror games, even Nintendo games that we play. Here just talk about creepy or scary moments you saw in some non-horror games you played.

    So part of the reason I started this thread was because of a game called Sin and Punishment - Star Successor. This is a Nintendo property, specifically a sci-fi shooter that you could say is Nintendo's answer to Neon Genesis Evangelion, funded and published by Nintendo. I want to talk about the secret ending so much with SP fans, only there really isn't a strong community for a four hour shooter. It's part of the reason I created this thread because of arguably the most terrifying scene I have ever seen in a Nintendo game! Wow this sent a shiver through my spine, like out of a Japanese Horror movie. I watched it two or three times and it's still really creepy. Basically the female main character, Kachi, reveals her secret. If you haven't played the game and have no plans to buy it, rather than telling you. I recommend you watch the video, you don't have to play the previous game to understand, you just have to see what happens.

    To those who played this game, was I the only one who freaked out what just happened.

  2. The neutral end to Undertale and the end of Deltarune Chapter 1. I don’t consider Undertale or Deltarune to be horror games at all (they’re turn-based JRPGs with good wit and humour at their core) but those parts freaked me out a lot.

    I also find Chapters 11 and 13 of Final Fantasy XV super creepy, mainly the latter. Considering the context and the fact that I was already pretty emotional, it’s no wonder really.

    Younger me really didn’t like stealth levels in Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4, or beehives/jellyfish in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The former I got over, the latter is a jumpscare so I’m... still a little scared by it.

    I feel like a game with a list of horrors that can be a thread all on it's own is the Legend of Zelda series. Who here remembers the Re-Deads? Ocarina of Time. Wind Waker. Twilight Princess. Doesn't matter what game, they are always freaky with their terrifying screams. But my favorite creepy moment was one that surprised me in the Arbiter grounds. As wolf link you may notice that your getting slower and slower and slower. When you turn on the wolf vision, it's revealed to be a bunch of invisible rats on your body.

    Jumpstart 4th grade: Haunted Island. Repsac.

    We're talking about an educational game for 8-year olds. That jumpscare still haunts 90s kids.

    I am going to have to go with the Derelict Reaper mission in Mass Effect 2. For one thing, you are exploring the corpse of 37 million year old reaper. You go there to look for a missing science team. However you find and fight a lot of Husks. As for the missing science team? Well, turns out they were indoctrinated and turned into the husks that were fought. Also the Derelict Reaper mission, well you are required to go there since it is part of the main quest line.
