Real world not giving you enough anxiety? Try being hunted down by the perfect organism in Alien: Isolation

I read an article a few years ago when Alien Isolation was new from a VR headset manufacturer (think it might have been the Oculus Rift) where they ran the game at demo sessions.

They said they had people tear the head sets off and run away screaming, and panicked.

There was some discussion at the time among game producers that games may need to tone the shocks down a little as there was the very real fear of scaring someone to death, and the resultant legal issues.
