Most TERRIFYING thing so far in TWD.

edited March 2014 in The Walking Dead

What do you think is the most terrifying thing to happen so far in the game?

You get the walkers for sure but it can also be kinda scary when there is a hostile group around like the bandits or Carver chasing you, I also found going into Crawford a daunting prospect before you find out it is overrun. Plus there is also the occasional psychopath like the 'Guy on the radio' who was scary at first but then he just turned out to be some sad dude, oh and don't forget Nate too! He's a hell of a nutjob.

For me I think the scariest is the massive zombie hoard that follows Lee's group to Savanah via the railroad track, there was thousands of them and it's the same hoard that Lee has to fight through in the last episode of the season. You first see them when Ben shouts "There's something coming!" and it's what looks like a massive swarm of bees on the horizon!



  • Pretty unpopular opinion my one, but the very first walker you kill, the police officer. Anyone remember when you're putting the shell in the shotgun only for it to fall out again? Generally the first-person view moments were always quite thrilling. Shame Season Two hasn't done them as much, I found them really cool.

    I be honest i do not scare easy but when lee had nightmare about clem as zombie i nearly sh** my pants shock rushed to my head danger of death then realization of what happen to clem my head overloaded in that 2 second cutscenes very well done.
    Everytime lost Clem and went missing i was so scared never see her again
    When i got bitten fell to my knees in fear and when ended up dieing fear and anger was immense to many feels for me to handle

  • The slow burn tension of s01e02 was very well done. You could tell something was wrong at the St John's farm. You knew they were hiding something. The tension just kept building and building until the dinner table scene. When I had to run down the stairs to stop Clem eating Mark's leg I was panicking.

  • Beautiful Idea, Hopefully they add some scenes like that, I totally forgot about those scenes.

    For me it was when Clem was out in the woods alone. I had no idea what kind of survival experience Christa has taught Clem but it was clear she wasn't done teaching her when Christa said something about Clem needing to learn how to build and maintain a fire.

  • When Lee got bit.

  • Yeah, that was up there with Carley not knowing how batteries work.

  • For me it was that random-tombie in the shed of se1ep4 in Crowfort it shocked me to death

    This, especially when it was the first time I played TWD. My heart was suddenly racing, thinking to myself, "Oh shit gotta hurry...Oh fuck!! Get the shell, get the shell--NO! Why'd you fucking drop it???!!! Pick it up slow-ass!!! RAAAGHH!!!...(bang)...phew...wait, why'd you throw the shotgun away?! Get it back, we need--oh well, nevermind."

  • My thoughts exactly. xD

  • The moment i realized that Kennys godlike Mustache is dead!

  • what? that never happens bro

  • When we were held hostage by Cannibals and we had to kill one of our group, That was just a fucked up yet Great Episode

  • I could name plenty of those moments but i'll just pick one. In S2 ep2 end when Carver took Clem hostage and pointed a gun at her, i know he couldn't had killed her, but damn that moment scared me... Made me wish to bring Lee back just for that moment so he could kick his sorry ass.

  • when you have to pick up the keys. god that scared me.

    From Season 2:

    When Carver pointed a gun at Clemmy.

    And when Omid died.

  • Nah, I agree. The shell dropping part always gets me.

    Another one for me is when the torso of that one zombie can be seen limping after you in episode 2 while you're avoiding the bandits.

  • Sam the Dog going feral and attacking Clementine scared the shit out of me. In hindsight I should have seen it coming, but you can't prepare yourself for every Walking Dead surprise.

    Yeah, it's a god like beard now, so powerful.

  • Yeah, this freaked me out quite a bit because it was just after a very gut-wrenching scene, and I could barely think about what would have to be done with Duck, then suddenly Clem "turns". All I could think was, "What the fuck is going on!" Everything just got ramped up into sheer terror for that moment, and it was unlike anything I've ever experienced in a game in my life.

  • I was making an unappropriate joke sorry, i thought that goes without saying. I know that Kennys Stache isn't dead. His Mustache evolved into a godlike and breath taking beard!

  • Nate at Wyatt's story gave me that "Jason" movie feel.

    Lol. Yeah, the first time I played I died during that part because I was fumbling around like an idiot. Thing is, you could totally see it coming. You drop the keys and the music gets all sketchy. You just knew he was going to lunge. Still, it scared me nonetheless.

    Yeah there haven't been many actual jump scares in the games so far in my opinion, but that was definitely one of them.

  • Around that scene there's a part where another zombie just drops from the sky; it's frickin terrifying.

  • It has not died, Kenny just levelled up.

  • I swear Lee is the most clumsy character I have ever played as. He slipped about 5 times in three minutes at the start haha.

  • With the police officer, in s1 e1 right? They fell right next to his mouth, and I was like, "shit, where is the slide them with my foot option?" Yeah, that was a small moment of panic for me, I thought for sure Lee was losing a hand in the first 10 minutes lol.

  • Does music count? Because if so, the slide music for episode 4 and 5 is so going to give me nightmares.

  • I'd say getting attacked by Sandra back at Clem's house in S1 E1 is up there.

  • Finding legless Mark...even though I laughed a little when it happened

  • Haha. Yeah, when he slips on the blood in the kitchen at Clem's...that was so ridiculous. There's no way to avoid it either. After playing it the first time, I tried to avoid it, but nope. You HAVE to slip on the blood and then you have to slip again and bump your head when the babysitter attacks you. It did make for some good slapstick comedy though. :)

    On Wyatt's story when Eddie went out and i had to stay in the car in all that fog i was feeling Eddie's body was going to fall in the windshield any moment

  • When you peek out of that stall in the barn and there's one of the St. Johns with a gun pointed right at your face.

  • Lee, Why you so silly XD

  • Lee! I choose you! [Summons Lee from a pokeball and beats the crap out of Carver]

  • edited March 2014

    This is what I wanted to do to Carver.

    Don't forget Episode 3's:

    And that's next! It's giving me the "Silent Hill" vibe... Well, there goes my good night's sleep.

  • No you dont have to slip first time if you hear the telephone messages... clementine will talk on the walkie talkie and lee will go on the side of the blood and not slip.

  • For me? The meat locker, full stop. The buildup during the dinner scene added to it, too. But here you were, locked in a small room, weaponless, with cannibals outside preparing to kill and eat you. You are completely helpless at that moment with no way out. Then, the biggest, strongest guy in your group has a heart attack, this being the very day you learned that people don't need to be bitten to turn into a zombie. There may as well have been giant, flashing letters all over the screen that spelled out "YOU ARE FUCKED" when that happened. That entire Episode was just messed up. But in a good way.
