Topic: Best Horror Video Games

Like the title suggests, what do you got? Please also name the console or if it's PC.

A few off the top of my head:
Silent Hill (ps1)
Clock Tower (ps1)
Splatterhouse (sega genesis)
Chiller (nes)

Re: Best Horror Video Games

I'd say Arkham Asylum and Arkham City for Xbox 360. Arkham City is the scariest in my opinion and the villain designs are creepily awesome. I loved Killer Croc's look and boss level.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

The Dead Space trilogy

Re: Best Horror Video Games

BLOODRAYNE RULES!!!

Then Silent Hill and Fatal Frame.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Resident Evil 1-4
Left 4 Dead 1 and 2
Manhunt
Fatal Frame II
Silent Hill 1 and 2
Parasite Eve

Can't think of any more off-hand.  I'll come back to this.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Resident Evil 4
Silent Hill
Dead Space
Obscure (ps2)
Fatal Frame
House of the Dead
Lollipop Chainsaw
Left 4 Dead
The Walking Dead (not the crappy first person shooter)

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Its a toss up between Left 4 Dead 2 (PC), Resident Evil 4 (PS2) and The Thing (PS2) for me.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Forgot about Manhunt! Still, Dead Space being a trilogy has the upper hand, IMO

Re: Best Horror Video Games

I forgot about Parasite Eve, I remember liking it back in the day. I think the sequel fell flat if I recall correctly though.I don't know that I would consider the Arkham games horror, though admittedly there is elements of it.

Surprised no one named Castlevania, I used to sesh those games back when I was a kid, now they I freaking suck at them.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Silent Hill 2 (PS2, Re-Released in the HD Collection for the 360 and PS3)
Alan Wake (360 and PC (only $2.99 on steam right now))
Slender: Eight Pages (PC)
Amnesia: The Dark Decent (PC)
Penumbra (PC)

I leave Dead Space out because for me it was all in the jump-scares, which just felt cheap after a while, but it was still a good series.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Old school Silent Hill and Dead Space IMO

Re: Best Horror Video Games

The first clocktower as well

Re: Best Horror Video Games

This Game, which I haven't played in years. big_smile

And as already mentioned a few times above, Resident Evil 4 (PS2). I've played that with my buddy, Alex, like a hundred times and beat it like 10.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Manhunt and Fatal Frame.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requim for the GameCube.

Heard Cryostasis was good, but haven't played it.
People say the SCPs, but I find them just annoying.
Amnesia has a bunch of custom games, several better than the original.  (White Night, Justine, Dark Room, La Caza)

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, for PC.  Played it year before last.  Very atmospheric and uncommonly creepy.  A couple really tough parts to get through (I just can't get used to playing on a keyboard rather than a controller) but overall, a nicely suspenseful and frequently intense game.

A GAMECUBE??? Woah man, that a console I loved. My friend had it and we played Metroid on it like nuts. Oh and Doom 3 too if I remember well.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

To be honest, I have an early Wii which can play Gamecube games.  1/2 the reason we go it was for Eternal Darkness, the other 1/2 was we got a friend's entire setup cheap.

Sweet. Motorola power!!! big_smile

Re: Best Horror Video Games

I lost interest in gaming years ago, but I kept hearing such good things about The Walking Dead game, I broke down and bought it.  I haven't regretted it yet.  Very intense.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Sweet Home is considered one of the first survival horror games. It was only released in Japan on the Famicom BUT if you want to emulate it has a translation hack

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Here is a Let's Play YT playlist for Sweet Home in case you don't feel like getting the emulation running.
