Silent Hill was one of the first horror games we got to experience on PS1 when we were very much younger than now, thinking we can handle a horror game just to brag around our friends that we played an adult game as we called it 17 years ago. We’ve played decent amount of horror games throughout consoles, some would turn out just okay and some would scar you for life. Here’s a list of moments that gave us a mini heart attacks when we were playing.
- Resident Evil 3 Nemesis.
When Nemesis jumped through the window during a silent terrifying ambience, I literally threw the controller to the screen in that moment.
I confess, I never managed to beat it because in my defense -I wasn’t scared at all- fear for my mental health. I felt my heart just jump to my throat and I have to swallow it back in. If I had to choose which moment, I would probably choose everything in this game.
First time I tried out this game, I didn’t see it as scary as everyone seem to claim. What makes it scary is the tense feeling you get from silent background music and walking in the woods at night time, and that tense feeling makes you jumpy to whatever happens in the game specially when Slender decides to pop up on your face all the sudden.
- Fatal Frame II
That moment when the ghost was behind Mio and she had to turn to see over her shoulder. I could list down many scary moments from this game but that part was the only time I had a mini heart attack.
- Evil Within
Casually walking and then Laura decides to meet you. I honestly panicked and I was mashing buttons the moment she showed up.
Dead Space and Outlast has their moments as well but I would consider these as my top 5 for now. What are the games that gave you mini heart attacks ?
