I do believe my vote goes to the Regenerator/Iron Maiden in RE4



Just look at that motherfucker. The creepy music that plays when they're around is ace too.

You know, Nemesis didn't look very creepy but the god damn music and knowing that he's essentially invincible freaked me out a lot in RE3.

I stopped playing RE4 for half a month because I didn´t have the thermosight and taking the first Regenerator down took most of my Magnum ammo. I was freaked out by them ever since.

Lisa Trevor in REmake. I'm pretty immune when it comes to getting scared by anything in a game. But she...

your regular zombie in RE. creeped me out when i first played it in (half) japanese 14 years ago. it didn't help that i've played the first half in black and white, i swear i couldn't sleep for 2 weeks.

i can't bear the humanlike ugliness.

Spitters are fun as hell to play as though :lol

Personally, I just can't stand headcrabs. UGH.

the fact that they're totally silent and how when you turn around, that first one is just standing there looking at you. *shudder*

There's this one Majini in RE5 that mutates the whole body or whatever when you get a headshot. Like, it turns into a kind of spherical lookign thing on its head and kind of spreads along its body. Anyone know what that is?

Khezu (Monster Hunter) and Spitter (L4D2). The sound has a lot to do with both. Normally things in games dont creep me out much but those two are just fucking creepy with the audio.

Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, Resident Evil, never really scary to me.

System Shock 2 got me quite a bit as a kid though.
 

ULTROS!

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

Left 4 Dead 2. Didn't know they looked like that, though.
Wow, that's a creepy ass character. Oh, and the "babies" from Doom 3 were pretty creepy...

Although creatures from contemporary survival horror games obviously trump this fellow for objective creepiness, he will always have a very special place in my heart :lol

Not the creepiest, but when you first come across them it's sure as hell unnerving, especially once you start thinking about it.

First time I was able to get a close look at 'em, I thought "hmm, this guy's pretty messed up."
Then I went over and smacked one with a wrench.
"Oh."

...

"OH."

Sometimes, that Slime... he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a Slime... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ahh, then you hear that terrible high-pitched screaming. The grass turns red, and despite all the pounding and the hollering, they all come in and they... rip you to pieces.
