    Anyone here played Slender at all? Had a few friends over the other night to try it and couldn't believe how effective it was at terrifying us.

    Just been watching a bunch of reaction videos of people playing the downloadable horror indie title to see if anyone reacted like we did. Found a funny one in the video above. One guy freaks out worse than I did.

    So what does everyone else think of the game? As scary as they say? Or just hype?

    It must be scary I suppose when you're playing it, as the videos show.
    Just from watching it though, it looks total shit and not scary at all.
    I guess it's about immersing yourself in it.

    Didn;t erally scare me, but I'm 32. You get quite cynical at my age.

    My main reaction when I played it was one of disappointment.

    Glol. I had to read it aloud before I got that.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    I shat myself, then quit. Every time. It is far more effective when you play it rather than watch it, with that feeling that someone is right behind you, watching. Waiting. It's unsettling rather than outright scary most of the time, though later on it gets pretty freaky!

    Not your best work. In fact it'd like to log an offical objection, just too much of a stretch. No pun intended.

    If you watch people during the day it's not scary. Play it on your own at night with a set of headphones and it's a completely different story.

    I thought it was about as scary as having a slightly larger than normal poo. And I'm normally a pussy when it comes to scary games.

    Actually thats probably being a little unfair, a slightly larger than normal poo, and you'd been eating jalapenos the night before. Mild peril.

    It scares me that you only link to FanCensus content.

    Do you think he's a small pony you have sex with, or is his name micro and he loves ponies?

    That's only if you pre-ordered Alan Wake II.

    Must admit that I found Slender gets real boring real fast. It's a very tedious little game - if you want a truly great horror game with bags of atmosphere, play Amnesia: The Dark Descent (and look out for Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, due out early 2013 - possibly January).

    As an aside, here's my favourite Let's Play of Amnesia:
