I was making a glass dome over a valley, and i was thinking to my self...hey I am way up here on top of this mountain, no possible way zombies/spiders could get me up here. So I am happily building away, take a look around and reaffirm that I am alone. Then from out of a tree hops a blows up and sends my body flying down into the valley........man, just about jumped through the ceiling.
I think the other reason it frightens me is there is actual consequence for dying. I mean it could of taken you the better part of an hour to collect all your materials and dying in the middle of some twisting dark cave may mean you will never find all your crap again.
Though things are a little better now that i have figured out a bucket full of lava is pretty much like a tactical nuke.
the one thing that scares me is the monster spawners. I have randomly stumbled upon them and its a surprise...i go ape crazy with bricks trying to make a wall. Then it takes hours just to destroy the spawner. I also get surprised when monsters sneak up on me outside...appear from no where.
It scares me sometimes, mostly just a few things though,
4: Cave noises, always catches me offguard
3: Random monster noises: I know they're lurking somewhere
2: Skeletons, Having an arrow land where you where just a few seconds ago can startle me, Also been having them get on my roof and snipe me constantly, not sure how they get up there, its well lit.
1: Sneaky Creepers, Constantly having them sneak up to me and blow a hole in whatever i'm doing.

I'm usually more startled than scared. I do get nervous though mining at lower depths since I'm never sure if I'll uncover lava or just more stone. Hearing, but not seeing the monsters also has me on edge because even though I try to light up my cave, I've had some monsters still spawn for some reason. I also get startled sometimes when the creepy cave music plays though there have been times I haven't been phased in the slightest.
All the time. I've never played a game that scared me before... But this one scares me all the time. Had a particularly bad encounter with a huge cave system filled with 4 , 3 , and 7 today. *shudders* It's a little ridiculous that this game scares me when Bioshock, Resident Evil, etc. never have... But that's what's brilliant about it.
Right now i am digging trenches and filling them with lava along the paths I take to my different mine sites. It works pretty well though it does take a bit to fill em....its pretty funny to watch, the only prob is you still get hit with arrows
yes minecraft has made me afraid of the dark, now when I'm doing anything i blow through torches like crazy and when I'm exploring and there's a dark area i need to go into I can barely talk myself into going into it plus whenever I'm in my house or mine minding my own business with peaceful music in the background and all i hear from nowhere is i freak and do like 5 360's with my character and search the entire area a few times over maybe adding a few extras torches to be safe
Once I was exploring a cave, unaware that there was a waterfall and a ledge above me.
I hear a distant "splosh" and look down into the water below. There's nothing there. About ten seconds later, a spider pounces from the ledge, nearly killing me.
I was so surprised at the realism- if you can call it that- that it made it even scarier.
Another time, a spider ambushed me. I was almost dead, and my mouse was glitching, so I couldn't scroll to my sword. It jumped for one final blow, and I pulled out my sword just in time. I imagine it like in the movies where you can't see anything but the spider, and then the hero emerges from beneath it with the beast skewered
How old are you? Lol..
Minecraft doesn't scare me, but it annoys me when I spend hours and hours digging a neat impressive mine, hit one block and the lava starts to flood, I lag and then die and lose everything :sad.gif:
