What’s The Scariest Video Game Sequence You’ve Gone Through?

Reading through this month’s issue of Retro Gamer got me thinking, what’s the scariest video game sequence have I’ve gone through? It would be an entire scene in Quake 4, where you get to watch your character get captured and strapped to an assembly line, only to be Strogg-ified, you know, transformed, assimilated, Borg-ified into something that you were just shooting earlier.

The entire sequence involves the main character getting his body parts sawed off and replaced with robotic ones, getting jabbed with a large needle, and almost getting his brain tinkered with, all played out in full technicolor.

I can’t think of anything scarier, but hey, what’s your most scariest video game sequence? Comments much appreciated.

    scariest video game sequence?
    It would be Doom3 for me. I find it so damn freaking scary that I couldn’t finish the whole game. Its very stressful whenever i play that game
