"Name the scariest moment in any horror game that just made your heart race and practically jump out your seat!"
For me I have 5 top moment's In a P.C horror game called Amnesia: The Dark Descent. (Spoiler Alert!)
1. When you go around a corner and a dead body is thrown at you.
2. In one moment of the game play you find yourself in a long tunnel and an enemy begins running towards you at high speed and there is no escape right when he finally reaches you he vanishes and you find out it was just an illusion.
3. Opening up Iron maiden's you have to becareful opening them because you do not know what maybe on the inside of the Iron Maiden one time I just opened it and an enemy stuck me dead.
4. In the water Horror scene it just got my heart pumping an enemy that you can not see that is in the water you must escape it as fast as you can closing door's behind you as it breaks threw each one! In this moment my heart practically stopped when I had finally reached the end of the labyrinth in the water horror scene.
5. Saved the best for last in the game play of amnesia there is this one moment when you have to go threw this long corridor, as you do so enemies break threw the door's chasing not just one but many! There is no turning back all you can do is move forward if you are to slow you will die and begin again at your last checkpoint.
For those who do not know Amnesia and are thinking on buying this P.C horror game below.
The last remaining memories fade away into darkness. Your mind is a mess and only a feeling of being hunted remains. You must escape.

You stumble through the narrow corridors as the distant cry is heard.

Exploring the eerie pathways, you must also take part of Daniels troubled memories. The horror does not only come from the outside, but from the inside as well.

By using a fully physically simulated world, cutting edge 3D graphics and a dynamic sound system, the game pulls no punches when trying to immerse you. Once the game starts, you will be in control from the beginning to the end. There are no cut-scenes or time-jumps, whatever happens will happen to you first hand.

I was just talking about that game with a friend the other day. I had the exact same reaction you did. There really wasn't much of a plot and the gameplay was pretty bad, but, just waiting and knowing that Jason would soon come flying on the screen (with that intense music) and attack, made me anxious as hell. I think I even had some nightmares about it.
I would say another game moment that had me on edge was in Condemned 2: Bloodshot, when the bear chases you. That was wicked intense.
