Nightmare Fuel: Conker's Bad Fur Day
Here we have the most M rated game ever. And for certain sequences, it shows.
The zombies. The freaking zombies. One: well, duh, they are putrified reanimated squirrel corpses. With the left eye hanging out the socket. For all of them. Two: while they're usually slow, they'll pick up the pace upon noticing you, either by being close enough or by missing a shot, which may sometimes not give you enough time to properly take aim before they come for your brains. Three: speaking of shooting, they only go if you split their heads open with your boomstick. Shooting anywhere else causes gradual dismembering, and you may blow a kinda head-sized hole through their torsos. And the bastards still keep huddling towards you. Add to that the setting they're placed on, and there you have it.
The scene before you meet the Great Mighty Poo. You hear the dung beetle scream about a horrifying monster that ate his best friend, and then you throw screaming, pleading-for-their-lives pieces of corn into the poo. All while a booming voice screams at you.
When you play the first time near the start of the level, then once you enter the graveyard, zombies begin rising from the ground in creepy moans with some having eyes coming out of their heads and their decaying parts of themselves.
The creepy unsettling music that is heard in Batula's mansion once the zombies start to appear. What makes it even more unsettling and eerie is the fact that there are giggling children in the background.
Xenomorph, the large, black alien.
For acrophobes, Slam Dunk counts. It's a long, long climb up to the top. Once they reach the top and look down, panic sets in and they may use the tail helicopter move to the center, let go and hit the context sensitive button halfway through the drop out of pure fear of what was going on.
Rare was infamous for their brutal Game Over sequences back in the day. Conker is no different. They run the gamut of Conker's possible fates, from getting burnt and drowned, to a bloody mess. If he loses and he's in one piece, the Panther King gets his table "fixed", leaving Conker stuck to the damn thing for the rest of his life. What gets you, however, is his expression. On the Nintendo 64, he looks bummed and rather worried. On the Xbox, however, zooms in to show him gagged and in tears.
Let's not forget the moment when Batula snaps at Conker, roaring in anger when his ancestors get insulted. It just goes to show that it's not nice to disrespect elders, even if they ARE vampires.
