"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

Grues. I guess that makes me a bit old, but they were really scary when I was a kid.

That list has very little in it.
Quake's fiends and shamblers. Especially in the mission packs where you have packs of shamblers teleporting around you.

Re: Scariest gaming monsters
I know one monster that is a few thousand helluvas more scarry than everything mentioned in that article.

It hides in a mysterious nebula in a Pegasus.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Re: Scariest gaming monsters
Mustn't forget the Chryssalid, either. The Grue is all well and good, but you never actually see it (though you do get eaten by it). The Cryssalid, however. Oh man... just knowing one of those might be around would instantly put me into a "Nuke it from orbit" frame of mind.

Whatever it is, it will be a leggy sort of spider/arachnid. I've got a terrible arachnophobia for those things.

Pyramid Head in the article probably ranks as top 2. I've NEVER played that game, but the mere sight and description of it makes me already imagine it, and nothing is quite scarier than a monster whose face is unidentifiable.
With the rapid increase of FS fan-made campaigns, we're giving the GTVA a harder time with more violence and genocide.

Crysalids, as in X-Com's Crysalids, as in I dont care where you are on the ****ing map give it every burst round you have, just kill it, dead, now, I dont care that you have a rocket launcher and it is 4 squares away from you, DDDDIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.  They really should have included a flame thrower for those things, cook it inside that damned armoured shell.  They made the demo hell.

about the article I had to lol at the shivan picture.

also what about Duke Nuckem 3D's octobrains?

SKAARJ !

sure they are tough suckers to kill at times but tbh even in the first game they were only scary in that time when a corridor goes dark and you are locked in with one early on.  UT killed the scariness of the Skaarj and by the time Unreal 2 came around they were mass baddies even the big ones were at most minor boss prestige

True story: The only monster in any games to which I had recurrent nightmares were the ghosts from pacman.


Pyramid head is laughable. All tremble in fear for the pacman ghost!

 
Re: Scariest gaming monsters

No, he wants to impregnate your face by way of a gaping claw-stab wound.  He's just doing you the courtesy of letting you live long enough to vote for him.

Alma.
This, a thousand times this.  The creepiest little girl ever, and I can't help but feel sorry for her after all she suffered.
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

The "creepy little girl" thing has been done too many times to be actually scary anymore.

 
Re: Scariest gaming monsters
Have you played the original F.E.A.R.?  If not, then don't tell me Alma isn't scary.
