Horror, scares, and heebie-jeebies aren't usually applied to MMORPGs -- after all, when you're playing in a world alongside thousands of other people, it's hard for a game to give you the sense of isolation that is necessary for many frights.
And yet, it does
happen on occasion. A particular zone begins to get under your skin and makes you all twitchy. You get lost in a dark, forboding section of the game and something finally jumps out at you. The artists create a monster model that makes you scoot your chair back in utter revulsion. You get, to put it politely, creeped as all get out.
So when has an MMO ever creeped you out? Maybe none of them has ever outright scared you, but I think we're all grown up enough to admit that there are times we felt more like we were in a horror game than in an action, fantasy or sci-fi setting. Has there ever been a setting, a creature, an instance, or a moment that made you long to bolt back to the warm, comforting lights of civilization?
