Is It Scary

It's just that I'm not a fan of horror games/movies, I'm faint-hearted haha. Please vote in the poll and help me decide whether to get it or not

I voted It Was Scary At Times..

This is not an horror game, but an intense psychological thriller.

You can be scared sometimes, but it's not like an Evil Dead or a Brain Dead

It's really only mildly scary, but if you play it at night, with the lights off, it gets like twice as freaky. But thats just my opinion idk if it was like that for anyone else.

The game itself isn't too scary, but what it does to you mentally is different. I hate walking through forests.

It depends on your experience with horror games and movies. How much of the "scare tactics" they use you've already experienced. I didn't find the game very scary, but I really enjoyed playing it regardless. Not that much out in the gaming world scares me much, anyways. Working on picking up the second DLC so I can play that. Got some surround sound headphones. Maybe that will make the experience more frightening. :P

It was sometimes scary, but it is a very good game with a good atmosphere.

I found it to be scary at times - scary at times being late at night in the dark.

I loved being scared though, I get some kind of rush from it :3

It's quite scary when you're out of ammo and running for your life to a safe haven on nightmare difficulty. Good times!

Yeah exactly just the earie surroundings you get placed into is just creepy. Also the monsters approaching keep being announced in slomo so that isn't the problem. My problem is still with the shocking moments of Barbara. BRRRRR

I didn't find the game scary, it's more of a thriller and I really enjoyed it. The old bitch is creepy though

I voted "mildly scary" because I thought "scary at times" was being too modest. I was creeped out/paranoid about 90% of the game.

The whole horror of this game is how the enemies just appear out of the forest. I wonder how the recently announced sequel will improve upon this.

This game freaked me out for some reason. Wilderness, darkness, wind, creepy noises all kinda mixed together and did it's job in creeping me out.

at times scary, but since i'm not really into that, this game has enough of a scare factor for me. it isn't actually a horror game, it just, as my friend put it, gave me a mindjob.

I wouldn't say it was scary, although there were a few startling moments. It's more creepy than anything else in the way the Taken mere from the background, and those brief moments of uncertainly as to whether that thing in the mist is an object or a baddie,

I would say more intense than scary. But the two are interchangeable sometimes with this game.

Same here. The game kinda reminded me of the TV Show 'Lost' when the characters first encountered "The Others". They could only hear them whispering, but couldn't see them.

The game isn't overly scary, but it had a few scenes that made me jump.

Games aren't usually scary, although I cant speak for Alan Wake yet as I haven't played it.

If you want scary play amnesia. 'Nuff said.

I jumped a few times playing Alan Wake though.
