The idea of grown ass men with alias accounts on Hello Kitty Online creeps me out.

(Not talking about you, Herb, or guys with kids of their own with.) Actually I did hear about something creepy that got posted on the Hello Kitty forum a while back. I think it raised a stink about web safety issues. Pretty sure there were changes since then. I hope.

back when Tabula Rasa was still running there was one particular instance where it was quite a creepy feeling roaming about the place. You'd run across a dead body now and then and a wrecked outpost eventually leading to a place where these creatures would literally burst outta the ground in front of you and behind you.
Those days are gone now but from the picture posted being from The Secret World they're likely to come back again in a greater force.

They really need to start putting locks on doors.

And installing doors.

Eve online I: Breaking through a 50+ man gatecamp with interdictor bubbles (and getting out alive with a covert ops Buzzard, as a nearby bubble expired a few seconds after entering the system).

Eve online II: Jumping a freighter loaded to the brim with minerals, into a low security system with only a covert ops alt to help out, and with pirates nearby.

Eve online III: Flying a faction battleship for any lvl4 mission in low sec space with pirates nearby.

Scary faces? Not so much.

EVE Online for me too absolutely... here is my story...

Half past 2 AM... I am ratting in the belts in my tottaly fresh, first Zealot, fitted with PVP stuff, but it was tottaly ok for ratting too. A neut shows up on local, d-scan on, aah, a Rupture, here we go. :)

He found me in the belt, I am 80 km away from the centre, he turns on the MWD, then I put a web and a scrambler on him, orbiting him around 8000 meters, just on optimal, out of his energy neut range (I didn't know that he fitted neuts or not, but caution is in the first)... everything goes well, he is in structure, when I tried to overload my modules to finish him... and then everything went wrong, suddenly my ship approached him (I missed the overload buttons twice...), he turned on the double small neuts, my cap went to 0 and in a second my beauty blew up... I went back to the station in my pod, logged out, get up from the seat, laid down on the floor... I was freakin' out :D still have nightmare about that night :(

I've never really been that creeped out by MMOs that much, I know it's happened but I can't remember when and where. But single player games, definitely more than a few. In particular Alien v Predator playing the Marine huddled in a dark corner hearing all these aliens lurking about while being low on ammo and too afraid to peek around the corner in case of extensible teeth.

I gave a cute sounding MMO-girl my IRL phone #. She started calling me 20 times a day. That was crazy creepy. She would stalk me in game too, just... watching.

mmo / creeped out? Well in a horror sense never, and I don't know if it will ever happen unless your 7. However back in SWG I did come across a vacant player city once only to find a few players acting out a little "scene" lets say. They were chatting in non-private chat and had no idea I was within range / viewing distance. It was very odd.

That picture is creeping me out pretty good.

That's from a scene in The Secret World trailer. An MMO that's all about creepy. Check out the video at:

Handing over money to Blizz so my GF can keep playing THAT game on a monthly basis creeps the shit out of me.

You pay for your GF to play MMO's?

Never gotten so into an MMO that it has had the opportunity to creep me out.

The last game to legitimately creep me out was SystemShock2 and sadly or perhaps for the best, it has never been turned into an MMO.

@Scuffles

Agreed. System Shock 2 was super creepy. A close second imo would be Clive Barker's Undying.

Kithicor Forest and Mistmoore were a little creepy in EQ, and some spots in HG:L were creepy. But in both of those cases I'd say they were moreso "on the edge of your seat knowing you were about to die to something horrible" than really "creepy".

Though I do agree that Hello Kitty Online is rather creepy...

Kithicor Forest creeped the hell out of me back in the day. I remember that you had to stay on the path, and get to the exit of the zone before nightfall, or you were almost assuredly dead meat (I remember guildies telling me that I could 'safely' cross the zone by walking along its edge, but that never seemed to work for me). Crossing Kithicor was a rite of passage for lowish level players, like Blackburrow was on the opposite coast. Placing it adjacent to the halfling newbie zone indicated to me that the EQ devs were truly sadistic.
