I vote 2. The classic RE games are used to be scary but I've played them so many times that they don't scare me anymore.

But classic RE games I basically mean any RE game preceeding RE4.

They're a helluva lot scarier than any of this ****.

Of course you'll have someone play the fear is relative bull****, but we all know it's crap.

Sad thing is the worst part isn't the loss of horror factor (which could maybe be forgiven), but the games are starting to suck ass massively. So much for that.

I've gotta agree with TC, it's the second one for me.

Resi 3 scared the crap outta me when I was a kid. Now its just business as usual.

Only certain moments of RE were scary. Once your first playhrough is done it's not as suspenseful anymore if you master the game and know what to expect.

I say RE is at it's scariest if it's a blind playthrough with no guides. After playing REmake for the first time I certainly didn't expect half the things that nearly obstructed me to progress.


(Such as the hanging man in the dormitories who committed suicide, cutting himself down and already being a Crimson Head after I re-entered the room upon Neptune's defeat by accident as Jill. Goddamn it, that made me jump out my socks. -___- )

I found RE2 genuinely creepy. I was nervous around every bend. When I played the B scenario, Mr. X just gave me the biggest heart attack. Also, the interrogation room licker nearly killed me IRL. True story, my brother was watching me play, I had the volume turned down really low, when it came out, he jumped really hard.

REmake was the only other game to give me a similar feeling but to a lesser degree since I knew what to expect. RE3 was more of me wondering when Nemesis was going to pop up. Not quiet as memorable as the initial two I mentioned.

The newer games are simply fun to play, but not at all scary.

Only on first, blind playthroughs are they scary.

Nemesis was scary (the monster itself) I didn't really find much else scary. Creepy sure...never really scary like a Fatal Frame or Silent Hill game though where I just wanted to turn the game off because it was too much. They had a whole lot more atmosphere too them than the newer games in the series though.
