Mine would be "omega three fatty acids are good for your heart" and scarriest would def be when ur in the final level after pushin the cart out of the way and you hear "you'll never get her back". That attack was intense on nightmare. i pulled out all the stops there. This game was awesome and I can't wait for dlc!

Ugh, those Taken quotes kind of killed the mood for me--wish they have gone with more scary sayings there. Two quotes that I did like were the Kidnapper sarcastically saying something like "Are you ok, Wake? Feeling all comfy and safe?" when you go through the park together. Also Barry's comments while you run through the woods to the helicopter pad cracked me up--"Flaming eye of Mordor", lol.

The game itself had its creepy moments (for me the poltergiest objects would startle me more than the Taken) but it still wasn't as scary as Fatal Frame in my opinion.

There was one time i went around a corner and saw a lamp pole ahead of me when it zoomed back to show a Taken was following me. I figured why waste ammo so i hit the sprint button and at that exact moment a Taken came out of no where, swinging at me. Luckily Alan dodged since the timing was perfect, but it scared the hell out of me.

I hate the liitle random crap the taken say

Most intence part would be in Episode 5 after you turn off the killswitch. There was around 6 taken. Got throught the door and waited for it to open. 5 more appeared so there were 11 taken. I had no flares and 2 inches away from the door, a brute tackled me away and I died. (On nightmare)

Funniest quotes I think...
6th episode, one of them says; "Modern camping equipment is lightweight"
And, at the end of ep. 4 when u dealt with harvester, one of the takens bash through the cabin and says; "There are 65 billions cows and pigs in the world."
Also Omega 3 fatty acids are funny too.:)

See i agree with typeonegativ, well kind of anyway some times when they would just pop up and yell crap it was dumb, but othertimes when you think you just reached a safe area and all of a sudden you hear some strange noises the music changes and all of a sudden there are 6 taken about to jump you it gets scary

Dude,you can't even compere Fatal Frame series to this game.The only game that came close to Fatal Frame imo was Silent Hill 2.To be honest i'm disappointed in Alan Wake's scary part of the game,unfortunately there wasn't anything scary in this game for me. PS. And Alan Wake seriosly reminded me of Alon In The Dark game for some reason.

To be perfectly honest, they can say whatever they want, but like the OP said, my favourite one they said was "Omega 3 is good for your heart".

I didn't have any scary moments as the game wasn't at all scary, but one part that did make me jump was the part when you're on the rock stage killing all those Taken - I got a fright when I turned around after picking up batteries and ammo to find two of the big Taken hitting me with a shovel!

They were 'taken' the piss on that part of the game, lol.

Although it's non-scary, my absolute favorite moment in gaming this year was when Barry showed up wrapped in Christmas lights.

probably when Barry shows with his "Flaming eye of Mordor", it goes something like this if I remember correctly

Alan: Hey, I want a flaming eye too!
Barry: Sorry it was the last one
Alan: Bastard!

made me lol for some reason lol

I thought when agent Nightengale got pulled away by the dark presence was so funny. He definately deserved it.

The creepiest part I believe was when you find one of the manuscripts on Nightmare Mode. It goes "I raised the page in front of my eyes and read it. In it, I raised the page in front of my eyes and read it. In it, I raised the page in front of my eyes and read it." and so on. It made my brain hurt a little just thinking about it.

Heh I love those random things the Takes says.

But this is from Barry when they wake up in prison, with hangover;

I think my tongue just took a crap in my mouth.

LOL! :woop:

For me there were really no scary parts, but more of intense situations. In Chapter 6 where you had to push the mining car out of your way while 15 Taken were coming after you, that was the most intense part of the game for me, especially in Nightmare mode.

My favourite taken quotes would be

"There are 65 billions cows and pigs in the world"

and

"...and three pills in the evening and you'll sleep like a baby"

a big sheriff Taken standing right outside as I bust down a door: "DID YOU CALL 911!?"

one of only 2 times I jumped a bit in this game, the other being when you're climbing some hill towards a safe haven and right before you get there a huge metal storage crate zooms down to crash right in front of you

Alan: I want a head lamp.
Barry: Last one.
Alan: Bastard!

Plus the 2 times Barry makes fun of the 'Night Springs' opening are pretty funny.

Usually when someone busts through a door they make it really obvious by zooming in ... but one time near the end they didn't do that all, and I was right beside the door. Scared the crap out of me :eek:

Episode 5, first chapter. Forget where... "It's Rabbit Season!" Reminds me of classic Bugs Bunny 'toons.

This is one of my favorite Taken quotes.
On Episode 4 after you leave the maze at the Lodge and one of them which is Barch actually says this.
You get 2 pills in the morning and you will be nice and calm all day long.
The next one is when you're at the Anderson farm and I think it's after you destroy a Bulldozer,a Taken comes out and says the following.
There are 65 billion cows and pigs in the world.

I LOVE the Taken and what they say. Honestly, even though they were saying RIDICULOUS and FUNNY stuff it was also kind of creepy. I mean, some of them would be zipping around and being all ultra fast and then say something like "Don't leave your food unattended, there are bears in the woods!" and it would actually BE scary because of all the distortion and warping on it. Sort of showing how these things are still human but possessed by the darkness.

One of my favorites was during the escape from the clinic, when the Taken approaches you after exiting the garden, saying something along the lines of "You get two pills in the morning," followed by something about how you'll feel. I wasn't amused by the line as much as I was by the way the voice actor said it.

BluntmanX
06-23-2010, 05:08 AM
My favorite quote by a Taken was by the orderly guy who also was with Hartman. "You get three pills in the morning, AND THEN YOU'LL BE NICE AND CALM ALL DAY LONG!"

It took the scary of the game right out for awhile. lol

Scariest moment for me was whenever a damn taken would pop outta the bushes and smack you outta no where..or the part where that old train explodes in a way and comes apart..I jumped. lol

It wasn't necessarily scary for me, except or the beginning with Barbara, and along with that I love the quote about filing Barbara's heart with light. That part was epic.

when you had to fight carl stucky he kept going on about INCONTESTABLE other than the TAKEN there was all kinds of funny stuff in ALAN WAKE chapter 2 in the sheriffs office the wanted poster guy had a knack for winning contests BARRY with the cutout in chapter 4 at the farm but agent NIGHTINGALE was by far the funniest hemmingway steven king and all the other author comments i was pleased the game was so funny to make up for its lack of not being scary i mean after all it was rated T if it was rated M it would have been scariery but ALAN WAKE was still a really good game

edit: the only time i jumped back was at the begining of the game the taken hit with the car the camera was behind him then it was behind WAKE WAKE jumped back and jumped back with him

Funniest moment for me would have to be when Berry said he was going to be the agents for those old rock stars and Alan said
"You berry the guy who only found out about gene simmons from his television show"

The Scariest moment was when i was watching a night springs episode in a cabin in the beginning of the second chapter and as i watched it i saw the figure of a taken just pass by the window for a second i was so freaked out i ran outside and looked around the cabin but was still freaked.

Favorite Taken quote? Definitely "It's Rabbit Season!" because the first thing that popped into my mind was "Duck Season!" Man, Looney Tunes have taken my mind xD Though "The Graveyard shift will give you cancer!" was another good one.

The scariest moment for me was probably the entirety of Chapter 6 the first time through. Especially since I was foolish enough to try to go for "Gunless Wonder" without knowing the layout of the level. Scary stuff.

AngelCakeTom
07-24-2010, 08:15 PM
Mine had to be In the very first level when you fight Stucky, I killed all the smaller Taken and took off his dark aura thing. and as he swang for me he said 'Stucky's discount room's!' as i ducked under his axe and blew his face off with a slow-mo shotgun blast.. I pissed myself laughing..

Scariest was Chapter six on my normal run (first go) i got to the tornado, I'd done the whole thing without firing a gun or dying or reloading, feeling chuffed with myself, and the acheivment hadn't popped and i needed to fire flares at the tornado. and the bugger popped up as i was aiming. lucky.. but scary..

07-26-2010, 10:37 PM
ill say the same i said in another post cause i thought this was scary

scarest moment is when ur having the out of body moment and ur watchin the lady in black and alice and she just jumps at ur screen i had 52 inch of that moment and ill be honest i paused that game turned the sky on disney channel hannah montana i belive was on went over to the clean washin and changed my pants left it for a couple of hours before i started playing again

Funniest moment in the game was when you got that "That´s a damn good cup of coffee" achievement. Twin Peaks referrals are always funny. Scariest moment was the whole run to Couldron Lake with those half invisible enemies.

my fav quote from taken

scariest moments are all the times its playing creepy music and you are just waiting for taken to attack, cuz they attack outta nowhere when u least expect it.

FishING can bE a HOBby or A proFESSion. i like the disjointed emphasis they do.
scariest moment was the combined might of my gunless wonder run. i was constantly being like oh shit.

Yeah, man, that's one of my favorite pages. All of the self-referential paradox manuscripts are awesome to think about, like when the page says that Nightengale reached for his hip flask as he reached the page describing how he read the page that made him reach for his hip flask. Very cool.

Game wasn't all that scary, honestly. I think they sabotaged themselves by having those slo-mo reveal moments for so many of the bad guys. All of the times I've shit my pants have been when it's dead silent and then I turn around to see a bunch of crazies coming at me. The slo-mo crescendo camera pans just kill the tension. Also, I think it was Episode 5, but when you're dealing with that turntable bridge, I had gotten all calm and complacent, so when I walked towards the toll building and that bastard burst through the door, that made me jump on both playthroughs.

I liked when you fight Hartmans goon and the stuff he says. It was like " You take two pills in the morning and the your fine the rest of the day". Its something like that but the way he says it is very creepy.

One of the funniest is when one of the bigger taken breaks through the wall and says: "Have you called 911?" then gets raped by a flare gun shot thanks to Barry.

I hate the taken almost as much as I hate zombies, but they did have some funny quotes. In addition to some of the funny quotes already mentioned, there was one I remember that was spit out by a farmer taken..."Stay away from my daughter"

Barry's Night Spring references are hilarious (especially the one in Chapter 5 when your walking up the hill towards the helicopter. Goes something like this...
"When you dodge a school bus and are about to take a ride with someone who may or may not have a pilot's license, you know you're clear for departure to . . . Night Springs."
The way he says it is classic.

As for the scariest part of the game, the scariest part was the Tutorial level. :p Seeing the hitchhiker at the car and then he was right in your face, you where like "OH SH*T!" and then you turn and try to run . . priceless.

My favourite Taken quote is at the beginning of the church ambush: "Physical Labor! Let's take a break!"

Scarest moment? The whole of The Signal DLC. Totally freaked me out, with

the insane Alan on the TV trying to kill you.

I don't have a favorite Taken quote, but I DO have a scariest moment. It wasn't expected - the part where you have to meet the kidnapper, but he doesn't show up - right after you get off the phone with him, the building suddenly shakes. That honestly scared the crap out of me!

I dont really have any fav quotes but my fav part of the game is the rock stage scene absolutely loved that one

08-03-2010, 05:55 PM
When you fight the doctor and as you come out of the hedge maze he says "you take one pill in the morning then you die". Between his voice being squeaky then taken at the end gave me a good chill


And any time a taken was right around the corner or behind a door got me, spanned the lb hard

cutchinz
08-03-2010, 06:07 PM
I can't remember what exactly what he said, but my funniest part of the game was when they're on that stage at the farm and Barry's using that control panel trying to get the light on. I thought it was funny because whenever he got it to work he would just fail and turn it back off.

The Scariest moment was when i was watching a night springs episode in a cabin in the beginning of the second chapter and as i watched it i saw the figure of a taken just pass by the window for a second i was so freaked out i ran outside and looked around the cabin but was still freaked.
I absolutely loved the writing in this game. First, I wouldn't call this a scary game as much as an intense edge of your seat game. It is rated T remember. Here's my quick sad tale. I loved watching and following the stories in the Night Springs episodes. On my first run, I also noticed the guy passing by the window in the cabin while watching TV. I didn't get to finish watching that Night Springs episode b/c I stopped paying attention and starting waiting for an ambush (which never did happen). OK, fast forward to my Nightmare run about 3 weeks later. I was watching the same dam Night Springs episode on the same dam TV in the same dam cabin...and if that same dam guy didn't distract me the 2nd dam time I was trying to watch the same dam TV episode. I felt like an idiot afterwords for forgetting about him. Thank God I never told anyone about it....(sigh).

But my favorite Taken line had to be, again on my Nightmare run, where I'm going to an outhouse on the farm (after the stage fight)for a page or something and this big ace farmer swings at me out of nowhere and says "Keep your hands off my daughter!". I was with Barry the whole time sir...I swear.

Scariest moment for me has to be in Episode 2. I was wandering through the woods, found a cabin that looked like changing rooms, so i went to take a look. I go into the left room first (mens i think) and its empty except for some batteries on the floor at the back in the showers. I picked them up and turned to leave, then the lights went out, and that same moment, a taken came up behind me and i was just shouting "S**T! S**T! S**T!".

For me it was the cut scene where Wake is typing and the old lady is talking to him and all of the sudden she is staring at you through the screen and screaming. Pooped my pants a little that day. The quotes from the taken are also strange and creepy.
