Scarecrow's hidden lair inside the elevator shaft was creepy as hell if you find it without intending to and it's 1 am and dark as heck (happened to me) and when you see the cape-less batman chowing down on that dead rat and making those horribly gross noises hahaha
You don't get it, son. This isn't a mudhole... It's an operating table. And I'm the surgeon.

Just seeing Bruce's parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne, open up from the body bags in the morgue scared me at first than really made me sad. Then, last but not least, just the mere sight of the Scarecrow in that third body bag really did me in (I had no idea he'd be that scary looking!)

I just replayed it, and first of all I must say that I simply love this game! It's been over two years (which is an awful long time, I know!) since the last time I played it, and man did it feel good!

Okey, over to the topic. I think the creepiest moments are the start of the first Scarecrow sequence at the mourge (heck, all the Scarecrow nightmares are creepy!) and when you're down in Croc's lair. I also jump every time a lunatic suddenly comes screaming at me and I don't see him before he is on my back!

For me it's Croc's lair or the penitentiary.

Another moment is when I was sneaking around in the vents and found a dead rat. O_O

I've just started my play through before GTA and Origins. What I remember freaking me out what the Joker laughing in the elevator at the beginning and of course the very first scarecrow bit.

Killercrock and the parts where the crazed inmates were let out and they could jump out at you at any moment...

I have to agree with what most people are saying. Croc's lair, the lunatics, and the doctors freaking out in Scarecrow's introduction. The only thing is I wish there were more frightening moments with him. A lot of really good build up (the flickering lights, the bugs, the whispers in the morgue), but he kind of gives a weak scare.

Also, before entering the holding cells for the lunatics, when you first approach and have your detective mode on, you just hear their screaming outside the room and see all their contorted skeletons moving around. It really freaked me out because, of course, you can't see that they're in their cells, so you assume that the crazies are all about to attack at once (can you imagine?) Even just entering the room, the screams and their looks are pretty creepy.

I find the music and hearing Jokers voice echoing from nearby really creepy, but thoroughly enjoyable :oldyella:




Also Scarecrows shadow before the morgue.

Scarecrow's first segment, the Lunatics, and Killer Croc's Lair all scared me the first time.

Now, though, I'm pretty used to all of them. Killer Croc's Lair still has me tense at times, though, since I play on Steam and can't always swivel my camera quick enough to see where he is.

Hands down, the creepiest moment of the game was the last Scarecrow sequence. First time I went down that corridor, and this is basically my reaction: "This hallway creeps me out. It's too quiet... The intercom sounds weird, and it's saying weird stuff. oh crap. The game is flickering. It broke... great, now what... WHAT THE CRAP IS GOING ON! WHY AM I JOKER? WHAT SICK NIGHTMARE IS THIS?!" Suffice to say, it was great.

Oh, the crazed inmates, how could I forget you? Did you know if you didn't defeat them all by the end of the game, the remaining lunatics will stay on the island?

So imagine me walking around the asylum, thinking I'm safe, when a crazed inmate starts screaming and hops on my back. Needless to say, I used the Line Launcher to get around after that.
