The 7 least-scary moments in scary games

4. Clive Barker's Undying (PC) - Snagging the Tibetan War Cannon
Clive Barker's Undying is overall a pretty terrifying game, pitting players against a wide array of cultists, monsters and undead horrors in suitably creepy ruins, crypts and English moors.

However, few things make you feel more at ease about fighting horrific beasts than having a big, powerful weapon at your disposal. That goes double if it's magic, and Undying gives you a big, powerful, magic gun so close to the beginning of the game that we wondered if it had been left lying around by mistake.


How are you supposed to be afraid of monsters when you've got a roaring, ice-breathing dragon head sticking out of your crotch? Anything that gets in front of you is going to be dust. Your ice-crotch will kill it dead.

    "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?
