Recently rewatched a playthrough of AA, and the Killer Croc sequence still stared the hell out of me.

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.

This is exactly what happened to me. Scared me so much I paused the game and had to take a break to recuperate. :oldyella:

Croc's interview tapes. Sat there listening to them and thought "Geez no wonder you got so big, tubby. You should start eating s'more veggies than people fatso".

The thing that scared me most was probably the first inmate jumping at me or when waking near the inmates who are in cages. You can hear them screaming as the door opens.

One might think all the lunatics would be gone once the game was over.But NOPE! The one that scared the life out of me was in the Gardens near the "Flooded Chamber".That sewer-like room where you hear Joker sing, then try out the (incomplete) Titan formula on a henchman, only to kill him and throw him down the pipe, right next to you.Yeah that room.Thing is, that wasn't the scary part.After finishing the game, I looked for a trophy in that room.To get it, you need to travel through some floor grates.I was confident there were no more enemies, I had turned Detective Mode off to enjoy the scenery, and then BAM! he jumped right out of the grate.

I always say that I would love to live in Gotham, but I would never EVER go to Arkham.Leave it to the crazy guy dressed like a bat to deal with the crazies :P

I wouldn't call it creepy, but when you're underground getting through ruins and sewers, and some of the main buildings' more secluded rooms, it really had a thick eerie feeling and you kinda felt you were in the middle of a murder mystery no one had solved for 500 years

The lunatics, always. I mean of course the Batclaw is godsend for taking them out but still.

I agree with everyone who said LUNATICS. Because if you aren't expecting them/they aren't visible in detective mode... jeez.

But the other thing: finishing the game. It's so QUIET, and you can't help but wonder if you missed someone somewhere and an enemy is going to pop out at you suddenly. I hate pop-up surprises, so that's the worst. :lol: But I guess that's part of the tone of Asylum, really. It's MEANT to scare you.
