...or Doom 3 just isn't scary.
Come to think of it, I can't really think of any time when I've been overly scared of a game. Ever. The closest I've been to being scared is Resident Evil 4, when you fight the Regenerators for the first time. And by 'fight', I mean 'run for dear life until you can get an infrared scope so you have a chance to win'
I think it's because in Doom 3, you never really feel like you can't handle the situation. I mean, on my current save, I've got a wide variety of guns and ammo up the ying-yang. Honestly.
Plus, the parts which make it seem like they're trying to scare you are undone by other parts. Sure, the darkness may hide the enemy, but most of their attacks give off light, so you can see them. They do attack from unusual angles, but you hear them coming.
I felt more lost than I did afraid. Not a good thing.
