As a dyed in the wool Horror fan....

Mack and Bob, I take my hat off to you!!!

Wonderful presentation, games featured are totally on the numbers!! I was ill when the nominations went up, but I would have agreed with the selections 100%. Amber has that je ne sais quoi which puts it as number one, DF is just soo spooky if you play it with the lights out.. Phant scared the pants off me but I didn't like the timed bit at the end.. I have never played shivers as my copy is corrupt apparently..(willn post in glitches bit later) I played Blackstone and first time I loved it, second time it freaked me out.

I remember reading about DF and asking if it was like the old Hammer films, well it is!! As is Amber..walk round a corner then BOO!!

Hugs

Great stuff ! My daughter screamed ! And to think we haven't played ANY of them YET !

. . . . Hope you're jealous ! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

It's the only advantage of being inexperienced 'scary-adventurers' I can think of. We've got them all to play !! happydance happydance

Cool! And the sound effects sent me in raptures! laugh

Question though; Frankenstein, was listed under Action-Adventure? I played it, but never finished it completely, so I might have missed something... unless it's an entirely different than the Tim Curry-title I'm thinking of?

Thanks a lot, guys! thumbsup

Gelert, mine too. My boys came running across the room to see where the spooky sound was coming from.

That was great, it caught the eyes and ears of my younge ones and mine as well.

Great Job guys, you caught our attention.

Great work, mac and Bob. thumbsup

Now I'll have to go out and find some of them. Just bought Realms of the Haunting, and I'm glad I did.

Re: The Scariest Game Poll Summary - 11/11/02 05:31 PM

Great job with the poll, but I have to agree with Emma - Frankenstein, Through the Eyes of the Monster is, IMO, a true adventure game. There are a couple of very minor timed sequences, but nothing that I would call "action". A great game, BTW! wave wave

Re: The Scariest Game Poll Summary - 11/11/02 05:52 PM

I just wanted to add one more item to our list of scary games, out there. That number one scary game is...........(drumroll please!!!!) -

THE SCROLL!!!!!!!

Please refer to Syd, our lovely moderator for further questions or details on the game! wave wave wink laugh

I heard the truly terrifying thing was Syd playing the Scroll eek I heard rumors to the effect that the family just dropped dinner from a stick in the room and fled while the fleeing was good - while she battled this game eek

Re: The Scariest Game Poll Summary - 11/11/02 07:36 PM

Ah ha ! **** 'The Scroll' ! **** wave

At last somebody else who thinks this is a fabulous game ! It has to be one of the finest games ever produced for the dedicated adventure gamer. <img border="0" alt="[kiss]" title="" src="graemlins/kiss.gif" />

What with its clean and supremely refined graphics and its oh so simple, user-friendly game design - the action icons are a pure dream to behold. Never before have I ever come across such a straightforward, easy-to-use interface. smile

The choice of contemporary music is breathtaking and the animation of the characters during speech sets standards never before achieved in any labour of love that is an adventure game. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

What's more, this favourite of all 'true' gamers runs in DOS - Yes . . DOS ! What inspired genius I hear you squeal ! This means that the player need not bother with that excruciatingly irritating procedure of 'slip it in and watch it load'. How very tedious that can be ! rolleyes

No, with this game you can just pop it in your drive and sit back, relax for an hour or two, hang out your annual washing, or even knock together a four-course supper for five and still have time to write that novella you thought you'd never get around to, all confident in the knowledge that when you return to your keyboard you will not have missed a single moment of the rapturous plot contained within 'THE SCROLL'. <img border="0" alt="[winky]" title="" src="graemlins/winky.gif" />

* This UNreview was written by a A.Boomer 'dazed and confused' by too much BAAGing this month already ! * <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />

Wonderful, boys! ...just wonderful. <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" /> ...brought a tear to my eye....and a lump to my throat.

so...? *ahem* Frankenstein...? wink

Re: The Scariest Game Poll Summary - 11/12/02 07:42 AM

Emma -

I don't feel like sifting through all the entries again. Unless.......you can come up with an entry that's worthy of the Frankenstein replacement and the other GB'ers agree with you. Of course, I'm gonna put the game in last place since it was suggested last! wink wink

Syd -

What do you have to say about this poll summary? You've been awfully quiet lately. Also, have you been expanding your funny farm? Gatorlaw has now mentioned the fact that you have a place for nervous gamers? 'Cause, that's definitely me! laugh laugh laugh

errrr....? I was merely wondering if Frankenstein was the Tim Curry adventure, and if so, why is it posted under Action-Adventure...? *confused* I have no desire to alter your list.

Must be because of the rock crushing and the way it made Gamers jump and run around their PC tearing their hair out. I got a lot of action out of that part of the game laugh

Personally for an action adventure - I think Nocturne should have made the list but maybe not many people have played it here... frown

Re: The Scariest Game Poll Summary - 11/13/02 07:32 AM

Hi Mac:

My cat has recovered! eek

I haven't done anything with Shivers yet past the first puzzle or two outside. I got caught up in Zanzarah. I'm hoping to get to it by this weekend, though. It sounds like a great game!

Great job, Mac and Bob! Thanks! I have to say I'm surprised Inherent Evil didn't make the list.
