The ginger boss in Clive Barker's Undying. I don't know what it was about that dude, but I played that game for hours and hours, twice through, and each time I made it to that boss, I tried a couple times and then stopped playing the game. Freaked me out big style :D that said, I am a total wuss :D

Erm, Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2. There were underwater creatures called Drugons, took me a good couple of minutes to have the courage when i was younger to just jump in the water to get to the next area.

The haunted cathedral in Thief 1 - had been creeping along a wooden ledge to grab some key, fell off, panic ran out to the courtyard and didn't move a muscle as screams and howls were all around :D

Didn't realise it had a save function between missions too, so this was 30 mins in and everything to lose!

Yes! One of the few moments in gaming where I nearly crapped my pants. Thief is quite an eerie game anyway, with this level notching up the eeriness as well, I was on the verge of a panic attack. Don't think I could play it again lol.:p

The big mutant gorillas in metro 2033 don't have the ammo to kill more than 1 and you had to look them in the face as you backed away to stop them charging you. o.O

The Vore in Quake. That tremulous noise it made when it had seen you and you knew you were about to start running away from some homing missiles (or whatever the hell they were). Damn things used to hide out in dark corners just to make you jump more.
Also, how could I forget the poison headcrab in Half Life 2. Scary little blighter made me jump more than once.

Also the Shambler I thought was damn scary. Always made me jump when you jump through one of those portals to get somewhere, only to find a bloody Shambler at the other end throwing bolts of electricity at you.:eek:

Those things that climb the drainpipes in Ravenholm. I hate the noise they make when they get close to you.
