Vertical Slice used scientific methods to determine which Xbox 360 game was the scariest, and to determine what constitutes scariness in a game. They used both interviews and empirical data, and also objective scientific methods, including biometrics, including heart rate, skin surface temperature, and GSR (Galvanic Skin Response).
