I remember looking at a PC Gamer Magazine when Fallout 3 came out. It scared me. Really. Then the first place I really stumbled into was the Dunwich building....needless to say it took a few years to go back into that. That was a day of many firsts-
First time screaming at a computer game in terror
First time my family hearing my swear out loud
First time being 'afraid' of a bunch of pixels.

Now? They are fine. Ghouls in FO3 were my very first introduction to the horror genre, and made me less of a man-child! Thanks Ghouls! Smile

Cmon man, Ghouls are people too! Well, people who've been hideously mutated beyond all recognition by mass amounts of radiation - but people all the same!

Do they freak me out? Nah. I try to help em out whenever I'm given the opportunity. Unless I'm roleplaying as someone who hates ghouls or doing a bad karma run.

The first time i played any Fallout game ( i started with New Vegas), one of these cheeky rotten bastards made me jump. I never saw a ghoul before, so when i was exploring some poorly lit location and one of those radiated monsters jumped from behind a corner in my field of vision...well, i was quite "suprised" to be honest. Certainly not my finest moment, but besides that i don't find them to be scary at all. Nowadays i just shoot them the moment i see them and that's about it. No need to be afraid of something that is easily killed by some well placed lead.

-reffering to feral ghouls, because #ghoullivesmatter

They definitely are creepier when you add the Clicker mod that makes them sound like the enemies from The Last Of Us, and pair it with Darker Nights.When this pairing is used with More Enemies, it makes for some crazy firefights in Cambridge at night!

I didn't know about the clicker mod will have to check it out. It was fo3 when I first came in contact with feral ghouls. That plus a monster mod that added more types. So many ghouls with no heads, legs or arms coming back to life it was worse than the necromorphs from deadspace. In fo4 they only make me jump if they catch me off guard like in Jamican plains while trying to build the door auto opens and I thought I cleared them all out. Nope sure didn't bam out of nowhere right in my face a charhing at me. Was like holy hell where'd that one come from.

With true storms ghouls during rad storms sometimes you'll hear them roar or growl which ever before you see them as they can spawn out of nowhere.

That first time going into New Vegas blind. On top of that, New Vegas being my first Fallout gameplay experience. No spoilers, no knowledge, unaware of what awaited. Late one night, wandering up to REPCONN Test Site. Spotted my first ghouls, startling, but nothing that I couldn't handle. Continued further in, stepped inside, since it's my first time in there, no idea of the mapping. Then I heard those growls, it was one thing to blast them from afar, out in the daylight, a contrast experience, in numbers, the variants, and all rushing at you in the fairly dark building that feels like a labyrinth. Simply thought, "Oh. I guess we're doing THIS now!" And then came the "Demons". >_>

.....Good times. Heh.

They don't scare me, usually I blow them away when I see them. But they do gross me out at times. I really don't like ghouls. When they do that shaking twitching thing and make that sound, gross.
But not scary nope.

In FO3 and FNV ghouls were not too scary because they looked where all the same and they look like really really skinny orange people. FO4 was a very good improvement and made them much more scary. The way that they crawl out from under debris and clutter is a little creepy and their emaciated frame (or bloated charred mass) in combination with their torn up faces and insane screams made them far more menacing.

In the end of the day, a mini gun, flamer or fatman all put those freaks in the ground, but FO4 ghouls scare me a little more than those orange jerks from FNV or FO3.

Yeah they're only scary when you see them for the first time and they jumpscare you. Not once you have mastered the game.

Yeah, I mean when they jump at you out of nowhere, that's really scary, but most likely I'm more afraid of Radscorpions, specially when they just attack you when you least expect it.

The thing with me and Ghouls is that i will agree, in fallout 3 which was my first fallout game and will always probably be my fav, because you never forget your first, the subway tunnels and the sounds had always gave me the creeps from their heavy breathing and their foot steps had just rubbed me the wrong way, and if you didnt pay attention they would creep me out. Now in Fallout NV i got use to them and they were fine, but in FO4, when i went into the super market in Lexington, i had nightmares from their bright glowing yellow eyes, to their speed and how they lunged at you had made me quite fearful, so now every time i am in the commonwealth i do not hesitate to pop a ghoul on site!!

Not too scared of them in New Vegas, but in Fallout 3 they're pretty scary. Even now, if I sneak around the subway at a low level and I hear them, it's a bit spooky Smile

Not anymore; however I remember all too well the first time I encountered them on my way to GNR in Fallout 3. I didn't know what they were and all I could hear was their distinctive scream.

I noped my way out of that station so fast.

I agree in fo3 subways was like nope just the atmosphere in there along with the ghouls noises. I always snuck around. In fo4 without power armor. It feels like they try to bite you. One time at this one junk yard with the random settler killing the mole rats. I had to go afk and so I went into sneak mode. As my game seems to lag badly after being paused to long. When I came back aparently there was a radstorm had came so when I got back to the game it was dark. I seen what looked to be something crouching near me I'm like the hell? It was about 4 ghouls I'm like yeah time to become a dragon and breath some fire on these things.

Still tho when they come out of nowhere I get a flashback to deadspace 1 playing for the first time and the necromorph at the elevator.

If we're talking about the Fallout 3/New Vegas ghouls, i would say no.

If it's about the Fallout 4 ghouls i always manage to soil my underwear since they're fast and appear out of nowhere and their screams are pretty unnerving.

Not particularly, they're incredibly weak.

If anything I just feel kind of bad for killing them as it feels more like I'm killing elderly.

Often scared the shit out of me when I opened a door. That growl/screech followed by the telltale patter of their feet as they run. Stuff of nightmares man.
