The 7 least-scary moments in scary games

5. Silent Hill 2 (PS2, Xbox, PC) - Pyramid Head eats a spear
Of all the twisted creatures encountered across the four Silent Hill games, the silent hunter known only as Pyramid Head left the biggest mark on gamer psyches. Voiceless and faceless, he'd appear at inopportune times throughout Silent Hill 2, his presence announced only by the scraping of his big, big knife on the floor.

When you confront him for the last time, you'll have that knife in your possession, and you'll be ready to shove it up his undead ass for all the times he popped up and tried to murder you. Sadly, he robs you of the privilege; while you can deal some damage, the killing blow is all his. Wow, monsters so deadly that they're a danger even to themselves? That's kind of terrifying, we guess.

(And before you complain, we're not counting the infamous dog ending, because it's intentionally not scary. That's just too easy.)

    "I was weak. That's why I needed you...Needed someone to punish me for my sins..." —James Sunderland, Silent Hill 2, The pyramids are a version of James meant to punish him for the murder of his wife. when James finally admits to himself what he did to her he doesn't need that constant reminder because he has accepted what he did and what he is in Silent Hill for! Thats why they kill themselves. sorry it wasnt an epic battle but it was meant to be symbolic of him taking responsibility.

    Numb Bodies scared me because of the fear of that clammy gross skin coming into contact with mine. *Shudder*

    So the jesters were the ones that killed it for you? It wasn't the fact that the two teenage leads acted like such idiots that if they had died, instead of the bad guys, it would definitely have been worth cheering about?

    why did they add the numb bodies?
