CV didn't scare me at all apart from that opening cutscene where a dead body is dragged under that house. But I don't enjoy games just for their scare factor. I got this game, not knowing what to expect (I got it years ago, before I was part of any online community and had heard nothing of it). Put it in, and the sanity effects freaked me out. Scared me so much to the point after that bathroom cutscene, I just saved it and turned it off, and didn't dare play it again for at least another month.
