    Very fitting, I get scared all the time....

    when a enemy randomly creeps up on me. But no definitely, going through the game blind without any help from the community for the first time, I was scared, legitimately scared of the enemies, the creepy environments. I think one thing that people overlook is Dark Souls amazingly creepy and horror-esque ambient sounds and soundtrack in many points of the game. The noise invaders make scared me s**tless every time I heard it my first play through. That weird wind noise, you know what I'm talking about.

    The stupidest thing I've ever heard. I mean, the fact it's in a top of horror games, actually if you listen to what the girl says before the start of the DkS clip, what she says it's true, it's punishing and disturbing. But that's not the core/key feature of horror games

    Beh. Should be Top 5 in everything.
    (NOW ON-TOPIC)

    If you see that from a Legit stanpoint. Idiotic. Putting an Action game in the Horror genre when the GENRE OF THAT GAME IS ACTION dosen't make sense.

    But if you see it as Dark Souls is a Action game MIXED with HORROR elements. Good. The game isen't like Dead Space where you piss your pants since you don't wanna look around the next corner but YOU'LL get SCARED by everything around you. Just KNOWING that something is gonna Kill either by Surprise or Brute Force is Scary. Hurrah

    I know what you mean, but I think that the word you are looking for is "abandonment" (supposing Google Translate is correct), you become nervous, paranoid, but NOT scared.

    This is coming from a guy who used to be scared of the Spiders in Minecraft (not anymore though, I've already got used to them, I think it's related to my insectophobia), Dark Souls it's not scary.

    A: Yeah, I knew ''SCARY'' weren't the Right word but since English ain't my Main language (EVEN tough i wish it was.) i used the first thing that came to Mind.

    B: WHO.USES.GOOGLE TRANSLATE? THAT...THING...Is so Bad at Translating stuff.

    Google translate isn't THAT bad.

    Also, I don't get why you guys don't think Dark Souls is scary. It is pretty scary, i.e. Tomb of Giants, being surrounded in utter darkness not knowing where you are going and giant skeletons ready to pounce. My hearts gets pumping when I'm in Catacombs and Tomb of Giants and I've played the game through a couple of times already.

    Essentially, what I am saying is why you don't find Dark Souls scary? Is it because you know what to expect. Think back to your first play through, were you not scared?

    Dark souls is the (one of the) closest thing when it comes to Horror.

    Just shows that here are no actuall Horror Games anymore (anyone remember Waxworks? That game is horrifying)

    1 or two levels that are mildly disturbing or heart-pumping DOES NOT mean you can just plant the "horror" genre on a game.

    The only places that really scares someone are really Nito's levels, Blighttown and New Londo Ruins. 4 out of...how many? Those levels can cause a certain level of scare. Demon souls should have had a better spot in that list simply because of Latria. People, THAT is scary, more scary than any level in Dark Souls.

    I agree. Also Plague Babies were nasty.

    I'd say Latria isn't scary...Until you step into the water.
