Have you ever genuinely felt nervously uncomfortable when playing an Adventure ?? scared

The most recent for me is still "scratches" .... Although having played it again twice, since, I've now got over it lol

I agree with your comment on "Scratches." I never saw it coming and jumped about ten feet when it happened the first time. I am an arachnophobic and I remember a scene in the first "Barrow Hill" where a spider showed up suddenly on the full screen. I jumped, yelped, and spilled my rather expensive adult beverage. I think it was so shocking because the situation had nothing to do with anything in the story, but it certainly got to me.

Hahaha !! I jumped too ghost

But the thing in Scratches that absolutely got to me the most was the trepidation that built up and built up about going down into that basement eek

I can't really say I have. I played Scratches years ago and kind of remember wondering what all the hype was about. I probably should replay it since I don't really remember much about it.

I think it was in Barrow Hill that I do remember jumping when some crow startled me out of nowhere though.

I jump sometimes when my brother comes upstairs or my cat jumps next to me when I am immersed in a game but it does not have to be a scary game for that to happen.

Dark Fall: The Journal -- when you notice the shadows on the wall have changed

Dark Fall: Lights Out -- when you see the mannequin in the diorama has moved

Scratches -- the oven

Any game that relies on sudden loud noises to startle me kills any ability it might have had to scare me or increase feeling of suspense -- loud noises make me angry, and when I'm angry, I don't get scared.

Amnesia the Dark Descent - so terrifying to me, I couldn't even play it at times.

Vampire the Masquerade - down in the basement in the hotel where there were at least 3 scares with the final one for me being in the boiler room. Quit playing and at 10:00 still had to go out to the barn that night. I was scared to death waiting for something to jump out at me!

Going down the stairs in 'Scratches' towards the 'oven'- heart pounding moment. More recently Root of Evil-The tailor. I turned around and the ghost was behind me, actually screamed. scared

I've been beta testing Conarium, a game based on a work of H.P. Lovecraft, and during a sequence jumped and screamed like a little girl. The developers laughed and said that was the exact response they had intended!

I am replaying Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within right now and there are definitely some scary moments, as well as moments that are just downright unsettling.

Hi, Marian!

You wouldn't happen to be referring to a certain scene near the hunting lodge with Von Zell, now would you grin ?

Another game that made me jump more than once was "Shivers", especially near the beginning when I was crossing the lake and the water Ixupi jumped out of the water at me. Loved that game!

That scene would definitely be included, Susan. scared

And I agree with you about Shivers - that game really has its scary/spooky/creepy moments!

The Lost Crown for me, particularly the museum at night. Very scary game and one of my favorites as well. grin

Shivers for sure. I seem to remember a scare in a cave or something... Think I need to replay this one!

Ahhhhh .... Gabriel Knight : The Beast Within. I certainly agree !! I'd forgotten about that one woozy

And the crow in Barrow Hill, too. Definitely got shocked by that .... Yikes shocked

But Draclvr, aren't Amnesia the Dark Descent and Vampire the Masquerade both classed as Darkside and not Adventure ??
[ I could list several Darkside games myself that scared the pants off me !! wink ]
