* One of the victims from the first game is Amanda, who's been explicitly put in that game because 'she didn't learn her lesson'. Remember the serial killer who could be waiting to torture you for doing something wrong? Yeah, now bear in mind if you slip, you're not safe from having a 'refresher course' done on you.
* Another victim in the first game is Melissa Sing, the wife of Tapp's late partner Steven, whose life just went to Hell after Steven's death. She's let her grief over her husband's death and hatred of Tapp for supposedly getting him killed get so bad that she's been neglecting her son, sending him to school clothed in dirty clothes and unfed. And even after Child Protective Services have been called, she's still not changing. Really makes you feel scared for anyone in the son's shoes, even if you sympathize with Melissa's obvious depression.
* In the second game, you meet a victim named Zeke, who's in something like the glass box trap from Saw II. This destroys his hands. When you see him again, his hands are gone, and knives have been implanted on the ends of them. This can be ameliorated by the fact that Zeke is a child molester, but there's something else to bear in mind. When you first meet him, Zeke is acting perfectly normal. When you see him next, he's jibbering, 'slicey-slicey-kill-kill' mad. The movies show that regular minds are broken by this process. This is the first time one's been flat-out ''shattered''.

** Most (if not all) of the traps are based on actual torture or death devices. Screenwriter Leigh Whannell described it as "only scratching the surface of how horrible human beings have been to one another for all eternity."

* Meta example: Those traps are terrifying by themselves. What's more terrifying is that someone in the real world had to make sure they are somewhat plausible.

** The worst part is that many of the people who do survive (and nine out of ten times, come out very traumatized) by these traps ''[[StockholmSyndrome end up as his own most devoted disciples]]''.

* Also in the second game is Solomon, whose trap has him tied to a rack and placed over burners on a track. Michael has to push him around, solving the puzzles that unlock the gates to move on all while keeping him off of the burners that are spewing flames. Imagine being in that man's shoes: having to trust someone to keep you moving forwards out of the danger of being cooked alive, all while there's a fire igniting under you...

* Really, the concept of the movies. A psychopathic KnightTemplar with [[TheUbermensch an equally psychotic moral philosophy]] is forcing people to mutilate themselves as a form of "rehabilitation" or else they die... and that's because said psychopath believes they are wasting their lives in immorality without suffering for it. Now, if you happen to have done any of the things that got characters in the films killed, and then are foolish enough to watch the movies, good luck sleeping. You'll be checking your closets for girls in pig masks for weeks.
** The worst part is that the people who do survive (and surely got traumatized) by these traps ''[[StockholmSyndrome end up as his own most devoted disciples]]''.

!!''Saw: The Video Game'':
* The Iron Maiden trap. Interestingly enough, it kills the victim very fast (being two big metal slabs with ''[[ChainsawGood SPINNING SAWBLADES]]'' inside), but that's not comforting at all- if you mess up on the puzzle 6 times (which is not too difficult, [[GameBreakingBug considering a glitch in the puzzle]]), the victim [[TheScream screams]] and the maiden slams together, [[CruelAndUnusualDeath grinding the victim to a pulp.]] And it gets better- when you're 3 strikes away from failing, the maiden slams against the ground repeatedly. *SLAM SLAM SLAM SLAM*

* Really, the concept of the movies. A man is killing people who don't appreciate their lives enough. Now, if you happen to have done any of the things that got characters in the films killed, and then are foolish enough to watch the movies, good luck sleeping.
