What scares you most in the game?
What in Skyrim really gives you a creeeepy feeling? For me, I'm not impressed by dragons, ghosts, draugr or whatever monster. However, there's something that really gives me a chill. Sometimes when you approach a corpse, it opens or closes its eyes, snaps shut its mouth, jerks a limb or some other reaction. I wonder if it's intentional by the designers (in the real world recently deceased cadavers sometimes have reflexes). But it always gives me a little jolt.

well i dont really get scared from videogames but the game i just got Farcry 3 does a great job on how real it feels when ur in the water,u have a feelin like u gotta get outa the water before somethin goes down, i am paraniod when in a lake or ocean u never no what is lurkin right below u. And also when u climb radio towers on the game when u get to the top its just like in real life its got that feelin like the tower is going to blowright over swain in the wind and its just like the vertico i get when at a high hight. So to put it short farcry 3 does a great job at exploting my 2 worst fears Heights and swimin in the ocean. But my main fear of all time is runnin outa weed

Way not to answer the question.....I usually crap my pants when playing with the mod that turns down the lights in caves and the god damn falmer try to rip your face off.

2 worlds 2 is pretty sweet when it comes down temples and caves its completly dark pitch black without a torch ur screwed. If u like skyrim give 2 worlds 2 a chance, i really didnt like it at first but when i started gettin into the game alittle like a dozen missions it came to me, this game rocks.

A giaint, A dwarven Centurian and a Dragon locked in Mortal Combat. Along with Drauger and Sweet Rolls.

The only game that really truly scares me is Minecraft. That said, the truly massive battles do get the adrenaline going. Yesterday it was a high level vampire, her deathhounds, a troll and a frostbite spider. That vampire was tough, even once the others were dead. I died 3 times in a row.

Though I love Skyrim's music, I generally play with it off so there's no battle warning. Occasionally, a troll or sabre cat will sneak up on me while I'm admiring the view and scare the stuffing out of me.

Sweet rolls, though? Not scary. Must have them. Every last one of them.

@stabbykitteh: now there's a thought - turning off the music. It would almost be as scary as the "creeper effect". No warning, followed by instant death.

At least you don't lose all your stuff when you die in Skyrim.

The first time I came across a Chaurus Hunter it scared the crap out of me b/c I had never seen it before and had no idea that Dawnguard added it to the game.

Children. With their clone faces and cold dead staring eyes. Calculating, plotting eyes.

The instant death has happened many times :)

It does add a bit more to the game's immersion for me.

My most shocking instant death happened when I accidentally ingested Jarrin Root.

Just kidding lol, nothing really "scares" me but there was this one quest in a city (Im bad with remembering names) that had to do with a haunted house, so you go in and everything appears normal then suddenly ♥♥♥♥ starts flying around, I was totally not expecting that and it did give me a scare lol.
