You feel watched. You feel hunted. You feel frightened. Most of the time, video game enemies are trivial obstacles. But sometimes, an enemy is more than that. Not because they’re a boss or a mini-boss or anything, but because they’re utterly terrifying. Their mere existence is a challenge to us because they, put simply, scare the crap out of us.
What’s the scariest video game enemy you’ve encountered? What enemy frightened you, creeped or freaked you out, and had your heart pumping every time you came up against it, and why?
But wait! today’s thread will be a little different. We’re going to be doing a tournament! Over the next few weeks, we’ll vote on what we think the scariest enemies in video games are, until on Halloween, the final decision is made!
In this thread, we’re going to be discussing scary enemies in games just as we normally would.
Additionally, you may nominate up to three enemies from any game by writing them in bold at the end of your post. (They don’t have to be the same enemy you wrote your post about.) The enemies that recieve the most nominations will be put in the Top 8 next week.
Let’s get spooky!
