    The end part of Phantasmagoria, especially if you make the wrong choice and get torn in half by the demon.

    System Shock, probably the 2nd more than the first.

    Beyond that, I haven't really played too many games that actually creeped me out. Silent Hill may come close, but that's probably more due to its overt attempts at scaring the gamer than a real atmosphere of terror.

    Not really a scary game, but In the new Indiana Jones game on the X-Box there is a section where you have to swim through crocidile infested waters. The crocs attack very quickly and the first time I got attacked, I about jumped out of my skin. Kinda left me shuddering for a moment.

    I think I was more creeped out by the fact that I ended up keeping a running bug list for that game, and had filled up more than a page of completely obvious bugs.

    I officially consider The Emperor's Tomb to be a late beta that LucasArts should've never sent gold when it did. Fun game (for the most part), but definately unpolished.

    Not so much scared, but one of the most heart pounding, palm sweating parts of a game I can remember....the tentacle beast at the end of a level in Half Life.

    "DONKEY KONG"

    Nah, j/k...Although it wasn't a PC game I thought Resident Evil was a little chaotic & saddistic. I remember watching someone play it on a 54"in screen T.V. with the volume kinda' up there and some scenes were a little freaky, especially at night.

    The alien vs. predator demo that first came out where you are a marine against the aliens and the entire level has blinking lights because of some partial power failure. The aliens were strobing towards you and I trust you guys now that "shake" you get when stuff like this happens. RTCW gave me a few when you turned around and an undead was in your face. Finally, Blood 2 scared me when I picked up a voodoo doll and started hitting it and everyone around me died, thats just a little too satanic for me.

    Forgot about systemshock! That is bad ass and that kind of scary is more like a high to me. Play it all the time still!

    Heh, I love how Eternal Darkness is willing to screw with the player in ways most games can't even imagine.

    Unfortunately, too many people have misstaken some of the insanity effects for actual bugs/problems with the game/system, which usually ends with a controller flying out the window.
