I'm going to be honest. I'm not very good with horror games. 
I do enjoy the thrill of being scared. The Silent Hill franchise, for example, I can be both scared by and intrigued enough to make me want to continue playing.
There are some games that I find to stressing to play though. Laugh all you want but the multitasking in the FNAF games makes me want to close the game. Of course, the jumpscares aren't scary at all and you get used to them very quickly, That's where this new fan game comes in which ramps the scare factor up to 11. I've tried but I just can't force myself to play it. It's too scary.
Also I've never played Ao Oni. I should give it a try.
I can't bring myself to power through the Farmhouse in Condemned. I can do just fine until the basement goes dark and then I just stop out of fear and I don't know why since I've played plenty of other horror games with dark cellars and other shit.

Recently played some obscure ass game on the PS1 called Hellnight. The game pits you on a constant fetch quest where you're running from some asshole monster that appears whenever he feels like it.
For the remainder of the game you're on the lookout for his footsteps amidst the droning ambiance and the otherwise pitch silence in that dark ass primitive labyrinth. Add to that the low draw distance and the fact you never truly know where the fuck he is and the game somehow becomes pretty spooky.
I'm too old to be scared from a stupid fucking horror game, but if I were younger perhaps I'd be too queasy to play it. The horror wears off though once you reach the spaceship at the bottom of the map and you realize Kamiya has more bullets on his coat than you'll ever need.

Come on now. These choices are on par with a little kid watching Youtube in the 2010s. How old are you, 20?
How old were you? I've always thought Silent Hill were action adventure games with a cool horror backdrop, but nothing particularly stressul, those moaning pieces of shit in the school notwithstanding. Reminds me how I went nuclear on those faggots on my second run seeing how I had +150 handgun bullets my first way through.

Thief the dark project and penumbra
I  completely quit thief some time after the first level after  looking up that I had to go through a painting I forget exactly but something spooked me really badly  it was bad that I was already uneasy from the sound and enviroment
penumbra I'm lost for words really with the game made me feel like I was breaking into a prison except I'm completely helpless other than try to out run whatever was chasing me
it was probably the first time I quit after a few minutes into a game and it wasn't because of  it being shit
>>240335 (OP) 
Yes but not in the sense you mean, there's some game I quit simply because the fact that 100%ing them is insanely long or bothersome it fills me with some existential dread.
no, I have the opposite problem
the scarier the game, the more I HAVE to beat it, otherwise I won't get any sleep
>>240335 (OP) 
Despite its bad story, Lost in Vivo is a game that I have trouble returning to because of how scary it is. After the first section, which was accessible in the demo, the game ramps up its claustrophobia to a suffocating degree.
>Silent Hill were action adventure games with a cool horror backdrop
Silent Hill 3's atmosphere and sound design is genuinely fucking horrifying and stressful.
I love it but it makes my skin crawl.

>Have you ever been too afraid to play/continue playing a game?
When i was a kid i used to watch my older brother as he played stuff like Resident Evil 2 or Silent Hill on the PS1, but i didn't have the courage to do it myself.
I tried though, i once loaded his Silent Hill save and found myself in the School, i walker around a bit but i don't have the courage to even open a door, afraid of what might have been in there.
With RE2 i was too tense when any zombie got close to me, and couldn't play that either.
As a kid Resident Evil 2 and Silent Hill traumatized me, that Silent Hill intro's mandolin used to send a chill down my spine.

Growing up though, the roles have reversed, my older brother can't play horror vidya anymore, while i love the genre.
Once he was playing Siren Blood Curse and asked me the play all the little girl's sections for him because he was too scared to do it himself.
Now he pretends to like survival horror, but hates any game that doesn't give him the US army's heavy artillery to blast all the monsters with, because if the game makes him feel any vulnerable, or asks him to do anything other than shooting everything that moves, like hiding or running away, he shits bricks, even if he will never admit that.

Oh and I have to this day not booted up the first Silent Hill again.
I did play through the rest when they came tho.
Reminds me of me dad detailing what he did to one of his female friends one time:
>Watching Carrie
>Seen it enough times to know the timing when the hand pops out at the end
>She hasn't seen it
>Gets to the finale
>The hand pops out
>My dad's hand lands on her leg
>She shrinks down and curls up into the fetal position on the floor area of the car
>She stays that way the entire drive home

I agree with you on FNAF being fucking gay and shit for children, but Silent Hill, especially when it first came out was genuinely creepy.
I don't think there was anything like that before SH came out.
I think the atmosphere of SH1 and SH3 was the best

I used to watch my dad play RE2 and RE3 and I'd have to leave the room because I was so fucking scared of stupid fucking zombies
I wouldn't even look at the CD case because it was so scary to me
dude that too, I remember when I was like 5 and I think it was like a christmas party and my cousins were in my uncle's room playing re2 and they told me "here play it" and I was too fucking scared.
So it's perfect for you
i remember forcing my dad to shut off the ps1 because the zombie eating a corpse cutscene from RE1 scared me more than few things have ever scared me in my life

Even if it doesn't scare me anymore, i can see why RE2 did it when i was a kid.
The zombies' moaning were unsettling, the music was eerie, and the pre-rendered backgrounds gave that "it's all fucked" hopeless feeling.
By the way, i think zombies were scarier when they did that deep moaning than those screeches they make them do nowadays (probably because of The Walking Dead).
>i remember forcing my dad to shut off the ps1 because the zombie eating a corpse cutscene from RE1 scared me more than few things have ever scared me in my life
Man, one of the creepiest parts of RE2 to me where when the zombies burst into Kendo's gun shop and eat him, and before reach the police station there's that group of zombies eating a corpse and you can hear the sound of it the camera shows you what's happening.
I don't get scared as easily as when i was a kid, but i understand why some are still creeped out by that stuff.

>FNAF is for furries.
It's for /clang/ connoisseurs.
Clang-sseurs, if you will.
furfag manchild in denial
this thing is so fucking ugly
FNAF is for retards who think obnoxious jumpscares = horror. 
It's even more annoying when you realize that in real life wild animals don't fucking howl at you right in your face like obnoxious fucking cunts, they simply go for the kill. Meanwhile in FNAF the animatronics just HAVE to scream at you. If I was the guard I would smash their fragile little cunt faces in with a fucking baseball bat. 

Also, /clang/ is for autists of the lowest order. Oh boy I sure can't wait to masturbate using a fleshlight that has been strapped to a robot, so hot.

Yeah, no shit, retard. They are not animals. They are robots haunted by children corpses.

lol, ok, tough guy.
>>240335 (OP) 
Yes but not because of a monster or a horror backdrop.
I never truly beat a hat in time, i went into playing mod levels and trying on characters and modded costumes.
But the final level has remained completely untouched for years.
It still scared me because I knew the jump was coming but would get distracted long enough to let my guard down.  Fuck that game

The tense atmosphere and fear of losing progress to some random bullshit stopped me from playing further, even if I'm close to the end. What's the point of playing a game, if it's no fun?

I wonder how the Internet would be today if some madman sent a homemade N64 cartridge containing B3313 back in time to a dumpster behind a random Wendy's in late 1996.
Replies: >>246407
Wasn't there an update to B3313? I also heard of some madlads using the coop mod for mario 64 and playing together in it. That could be fun.
Replies: >>246450 >>246534
There was, it contains so much autism Mupen64plus and its forks require source code edits to increase the ROM size limit else you'll get a TLB error.
Link to a jewgle drive containing B3313 v0.7 for sm64coopdx/ex(?), place it in your user folder and it should show up under ROM Hacks in the server hosting options, though it'll obviously enable itself upon connecting to a modded serb.
sm64coopdx complains about script errors but so far the mod seems to work for the most part, I opened a serb under the password sleepy using the coopnet but have no idea if anyone can connect to it.

I fucking hate Doom 3 in terms of gameplay, but that was an experience I won't forget.

He never finished it, I did it a few years later on my own rig.
Shame he fell into the MMO and ASSFAGGOTS memes.

If you're on Linux you need to grab a plain US M64 ROM in .z64 format, then rename it to baserom.us.z64 and make the port, if you're on Windoze you can just get the patcher in the releases section and drag your ROM on it.
It only accepts regular US/JP/PAL(?) ROMs, ROMhacks aren't really hacks in this but rather a category of mod.
Once you've started the port, go the serb joining menu, choose "private lobby" and enter the password.
Ingame options can be accessed by pressing start to enter the pause menu and pressing R on your controller/RShift on your keyboard.

What does make the port mean and how do I start it?

How can it be that WW2 flight simulators are objectively spookier than Clock Tower for the SFC?
Autistically scanning every pixel for the last guy on the serb while looking behind you every 30 sec like a paranoid schizo while listening for the closest hint of foreign engine noise is considerably more unnerving than some manlet with a giant scissor trying to kill you.

Playing War Thunder in sim mode is very scary, i agree.
Some kinds of horror make me physically ill.  I'm fine with zombies generally but things like FEAR or Silent Hill make me feel sick.

FEAR has like 4 jumpscares total
I'm sure you can power through them, because I'm a little bitch when it comes to horror and I've replayed F.E.A.R. countless times.
-There's one in the very beginning when a swarm of blackness touches you in the hallway, 
-Fettel bonking you in the face with a 2x4 (if that even counts)
-The one where Alma crawls towards you in the vent
-The double ladder scare (that one got me, loved it)
-The hugging skeleton in the flashback blood pool, but it makes most people laugh because of how ridiculous it looks
- And there's one where Alma crawls at you out of a dark cubicle/hallway, blink or look the wrong way and you'll miss it (I know I did for most of my early runs)
