Shortly into Resident Evil 4, I found the enemies creepy and sort of menacing, but any actual terror was mitigated by a couple facts. First, while the villagers do have a tendency to pop up behind you, they walk like they're wading through a vat of maple syrup. Second, Leon Kennedy has seemingly built up a tolerance to getting stabbed by pitchforks and hand axes.
|Ah, good. The masseuse is here.|
This is what happened.
Just a little to the lef... no... wait... you got it.
In a series full of freakout moments, this is the one that sticks with me.
