Is anyone else scared of this game?

I don't know what it is, but I find this game to be freaky. The odd music, the random shootings, the bizzare characters; It just makes me freak out.

Example: I was walking through the wastlands and there sudenly was something shooting at me, and I couldent find what. I ran and ran but it still shot me. PLEASE LORD, STOP THE SHOOTING!!!!

Example: The feral ghouls - enough said

I know im just a big scaredy cat, but im just curious if anyone else felt this way. Post examples if you would like.

Spoilers ahead.

Oh, yes. I took a break after "The Power of the Atom". Then I decided that I was going to finish it and get all the achievements, gosh darn it, and power through. I've done some side quests, and I'm ready to talk to Dr. Li in Rivet City to find my father. I'm halfway to level 13, and do decently in combat. I usually have to reload saves when Dogmeat dies. But some of this "dungeon crawling" is pretty freaky. I'm taking a break from it for a while. Who knows how long this time?

if you want freaky, hook up your console to home theater system and play it in 5.1 surround sound. i've got noises coming out of my surround sound speakers that ive never heard before. throw in playing it at night and turning suddenly to see a deathclaw crawling up your butt and yeah, youll jump a few times out of your skin

I have a bit of arachnophobia so the scorpions don't exactly help when they jump out of random corners.

After so many horror movies, on top of games like Dead Space, Resident Evil, and Silent Hill... Fallout 3 is far from a scary game. In fact, I find it laughable.

If you really can't stand it, just listen to Galaxy News Radio all the time. Listening to songs about sunshine and happiness while eviscerating raiders is a recipe for good times.

Personally I love the game, but the Post Apocalyptic stuff is my favorite...I love a game that can set you on edge and Fallout does a great job of it.

Amazing how much you hear once you've got some decent speakers or headphones

So scary they come out of no where or they spawn right behind something. Man I get scared too easy never really cared for scary movies. It's just the look to some of the creatures that scare me.

What scared me the most was Charon dyiing all the time. Dogs or Yao Guai would come up and one shot him. I had to keep reloading my saves couldn't keep him alive then finally picked up Fawkes towards the end. He kind of makes it scary too he will run at me from around the corner. lol

If you want to be scared in this game then I suggest you play without any noise whatsoever. Go to an area full on Super Mutants when it is dark and try to take down all of then on the hardest level. You will be scared or get scared.

When I first got this game a few years ago it kinda creeped me out, too, not a lot though and I got used to it pretty fast... It actually creeped me out a LOT more before I got it, watching YouTube gameplays and such, I almost didn't want to get it because it looked SO just... well fucked up, lol, but it proved too tempting. You'll get used to it soon, though and by the time you get to New Vegas you probably won't get scared (although there are some places that still get me going).

As far as fear, there were plenty of moments during my first playthrough of the game. My first Deathclaw encounter (was TERRIFIED of them in the beginning lol), certain vaults (I remember there being one where all of the vault dwellers were mentally insane; the one filled with extreme radiation levels), the dreaded Dunwich building (later runthroughs I didn't even go in there lol), and the giant radscorpions (have a fear of them IRL).

It's an special atmosphere that Bethesda created in this game and I loved every second of it. This insanity that accompanies the whole surrounding world is just something really exclusive.

If by "scared" you mean "hated"...yes. I hated this game and it's follow up, "NV". I tried them but just could not get into it. I had friends hope I'd like them but I just couldn't.

That's clearly not what he means, so why bother posting.

===
I really really hated going into Vaults. Enemies, no enemies, doesn't matter, those were the creepiest things in the universe in my book. I also REALLY REALLY REALLY hate underwater in ANY video game, so I didn't enjoy getting to Pinkerton one bit. I think there was also a cave with a large underwater section? Or maybe that was New Vegas.

I don't handle scary too well though, so when I was new to the game I did get jumps from random enemies popping out from the dark and other sudden things like mines going off. I eventually got used to the general vibe of the game, making it easier on the nerves; it also helps when you mash the VATS button like a bitch to preempt anything that wants to jump you :P

What I find that really helps is that what ever made you jump, no matter what it is, being shot repeatadly then stamped on... always made me feel awesome again. And it happened more times than it should have done lol

after playing bioshock which trumps any freakyness in this game I wasnt really bothered besides anytime I was uneasy I kept tapping vats so I instantly saw any nasties trying to jump me.
I would have disliked the dunwich building a lot more if I had no follower and I found point lookout to be very creepy (in the swamp with real tough swamp folk, that underground cave with their holy book and the PoW camp were all real bad) with no followers for company and I left my trusty op anchorage power armour behind and took reileys combat armour so felt more vulnerable. you can be sure I jumped on the boat back as soon as I got all the achevs.

When I explored parts of the wasteland as a low level, I kept getting paranoid and turned around frequently to double check if a deathclaw was there. Other than that, not so much.

Going alone in the tunnels, listening some feral ghouls that you canīt see but you know are gonna come sometime for you can scared me sometimes.

Specially playing on a not very good stealth character with not much range for the enemies to appear on your radar (If i do remember correctly there was a S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attribute that affects that didnīt?).

I really dislike closed dark spaces, primary those filled with zombies and alike creatures, both in real life and gaming.

Thereīs too lots of creatures in the game that, without been scary, are pretty creepy. Ants and cockroaches seem very unpleasant to have near, been attacked by or even touch.

Scared? MY ANSWER IS YES!!! When I play this game, sometimes I stop in middle of a cave, I turn my head to speak with my mom, and when I turn to the computer, a big stupid monster is eating my head, and I start yelling like a kid! Actually, I put off the sound, so I can play without that fear

Not the game as a whole, but the Giant Radscorpions scare the shit out of me. Especially when I turn around and they have just come from out of nowhere. I don't know what it is, but something about them freaks me out, even their dead bodies freak me out. And proper scorpions in RL don't have an effect on me, it's just those in game.
