Doom 3 – I wasn’t scared…

Standard

The sky is red as are the walls of the scientific research facility I’ve been exploring for the past few days. Demons roam the bloody hallways, hiding, ready to jump out and meet my machine gun. A lot of meetings have taken place here. Meetings featuring the roaring of my personal arsenal and demons flooding in from a gateway to Hell. Teleportation science run amok.

Walking down a dimly lit corridor, I know that there are demons waiting for my brand of clean up. I go to turn a corner and….

AHHHHHHHHHH!┬áSomeone touched my back… someone is behind me!

I rip my headphones off only to hear laughter from the guys on my dorm floor. I’m shaking with adrenaline. That day in college, I learned a few valuable lessons:

  1. Always face your computer to where no one can sneak up on you.
  2. Headphones, while cool, are not always your friends.

Doom 3

I’ll never forget how scared I was to play Doom 3 after having the guys sneak up on me. I did not play Doom 3 after that incident. The magic and the tension were gone.

What was the last game that scared you?

  1. Eh, you didn’t miss much. The atmosphere and tension is much better in other games, and you don’t have to faff about with demonic imagery either. See: my praise of Alien Isolation.
