    Which area creeps you out the most?

    Post by SlakeMoth on Tue Apr 03, 2012 7:49 pm

    Yeah, I know they all have their moments, but the New Londo Ruins give me the heebie jeebies. I'm not joking when I say my eyes are out on stalks whenever I go there trying to see round corners and it's so daaaark! Those freakin ghosts that mob you on the steps down to the room and rise up out of the water and when you get to The Room they're everywhere. They even follow you up the chimney! Then when you've drained the ruins and go through the Valley of the Drakes' entrance, you just know that there's a Dark Wraith just waiting to suck your bones and there's more where he came from.

    Sorry, can't write any more, just thinking about it gives me the dithers.

    I've played through the game too many times to even be somewhat surprised by enemies or dark areas since I've learned every tiny detail of where enemies are through sheer habit :|

    That being said, I still hate the depths just because it feels, well, gross. I run through that place as fast as possible so I don't have time to consider things like "what exactly is causing character-sized stalagmites of muck to form," or "what are the tiny bones sticking out of the goop enemies," or even "where is all this waste coming from if Lordran is only inhabited by undead who don't need to eat, and therefore produce no waste?" It's just...nasty. Blighttown is nasty by nature of being a poisonous swamp, but the Depths is nasty for who-knows-what :|

    First couple playthroughs The Depths and Upper Blighttown were horrible. The Depths because every corner had a nasty surprise around it, and upper Blighttown mostly because of those disgusting guys that chew on you. Ugh! That roar they do when you can't see them made it worse, like, "Oh ****, they see me. They see me!"

    Probably New Londo for me, that place, when you through it for the first time and a ghost can kill you easily, makes me feel unnerved.

    Now if were including demon souls, then I would say that the Tower of Latria horrified me. Dark, bottomless pits, masses of writhing bodies floating through the air, possessed people, tortured prisoners, mindflayers that suck your brains out. Convoluted building designs, tentacles rising out of toxic waters. That place was a nightmare.

    New Londo drained. Ghosts were annoying as all get out but the wetness of everything. Like everything you touch would be cold and rotting. The piles of...matter...almost makes you smell the decay. The door to the valley has the wee little streams of water coming out. All I can think of is that the piles of...matter...are slowly settling and compressing, no longer buoyant. As the compress they trickle out their ichor into the valley. Eww

    That was impressive, you actually managed to trigger my memory enough that I actually smelt the partial decay of preserved specimens, that was not pleasant silly

    I'm watching a blind walkthrough on Youtube, and when the player enters the dark after killing Pinwheel, he inches his way forward, and just when those first two glowing eyes appear he takes out his binoculars and scans around. When he settled on those two glowing eyes it was one of the funniest things I've seen from a playthrough vid.

    For some reason, right when you enter the Kiln and those phantom black knights are walking around, that always scares the crap outa me.

    Definitely Totg... i freakin hate that place. I've been in there about 10 times and every time i just run past everything not killing anything 'cept ol Leroy. The combination of the complete darkness, glowing red eyes, and seemingly random noises. Scares the living day out of me! :affraid: :no:

    Creeps?
    None really.
    I was too busy raging on my lack of Curses to pass New Londo, so I couldn't focus on the atmosphere.
    But I find Painted World quite disturbing, I just... don't feel safe there: The bonfire's too close from the enemies, the pathway leading to it is narrow and seems something's going to come from there, everything looks dead (Like it had an Ash-Storm like Silent Hill) and the Fire Breathing, bulbous creatures are just live representations of human pain and sickness...
    Jesus, I found out that Painted World (and Ariamis) really creep the *** out of me.

    I realise I'm going to sound daft, but for me it was Anor Londo. I mean it didn't 'scare' me but sadly I don't find games scary very often. I jump like a cricket at the slightest 'boo!' moment, but I don't ever get fightened. I do however find my imagination running away from me a lot, and Anor Londo did that perfectly. This giant, deserted, achingly beautiful ghost city filled with unmoving giant sentinels and demonic gargoyles stretching out to the horizon and bathed in sunshine did a number on me in that regard. I tiptoed my way through it thinking 'god, what else is sleeping in this city?' I rather like that feeling of being somewhere formerly glorious but now sinister.

    It reminded me a little of Ulduar in WoW for anyone who played it. Big dead city from a bygone age with something horrible at it's heart.

    I'm actually with Zechk on this one, I kind of get chills when I look out into this dead city sometimes. It's beautiful, but it just seems like such a ghost town. If I had to wander the actual empty city in the further parts of it, I'd probably turn the game off and wait till a friend is over to play it, then annoy them because we're supposed to be meeting Greg at Double Yoke, but I just need to get past this one level first. 8)

    Zechk, I've known all along you played WoW haha. Actually funny you mention it, Ulduar is my favourite Raid. Though Ulduar never creeped me out in WoW, I can't really think of anything in that game that did.

    Tomb of giants and New Londo... damn skeleton dogs and phantoms...
    But as I said somewhere else, the worst part for me is Depths when you have to fight the Butchers. I hate them. I hate their sound, I don't know... They never killed me (except for my first try, where the first butcher actually saw me from below and came up on the stairs).
    Now you can imagine what I felt when I went down into the depths in NG+ and found them cursed, and there was this BP butcher waiting for me...

    I never actually raided after Vanilla, so I've never been in Ulduar, I just liked the concept and the screenshots. It wasn't creepy no, but it did have that same vibe of a once great city now filled with horrors.

    As for creepy in WoW? Darkshire. Best zone evar. The atmosphere could be cut with a knife. I was Horde and I used to go there and just wander around on my Rogue soaking it all up.

    Completely remodelled and all of the quests changed, I'm pretty sure now it's just full of Worgen and big battlegrounds against the Undead.

    *Wipes away the sweat on his brow*

    So yeah, creepiest thing I can think of in Dark Souls is the ghouls. Getting macked on by one of those things just never seems right.
