Re: Best Horror Video Games

My favorites are the Silent Hill series (yes, all of them. SH Homecoming and SH Downpour don't get enough love, I really like both of them).

I also like Resident Evil REmake, 2, 4, and 5.

Dead Space 1 and 2 are great, but 3 really let me down.

A game that nobody has mentioned yet is Condemned: Bloodshot for PS3 and Xbox 360. If you haven't played it, I suggest you do. The first game, Condemned: Criminal Origins, I can't comment on yet as I haven't played it.

Alice: Return To Madness also has some horror elements to it even though its largely a platformer.

A couple people have mentioned the Fatal Frame games, and while I own the second one (said to be the best in the series) for some reason I can't get into it. While I'm not that far into the game, what I've played of it so far has underwhelmed me. I hope it gets better.

I'm a HUGE Alice fan, not one has deceived me and can't wait to play this new one.

But as far as Horror, NOTHING you hear me, NOTHING will EVER beat Silent Hill one. Way too cool and what a freaking creepy as H3LL atmosphere.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

I agree, Silent Hill 1 is my favorite also.

The other world school is one of my favorite locations in the whole series.

And of course, the infamous alley scene is one huge ball of creepy what the fuck. I love it.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

I loved the first Silent Hill game.  So damned atmospheric, and yeah I totally dug the alley and school parts.  Those baby ghosts gave me a jump every damn time.

Liked the flick quite a bit, too.  Fine, so it was an amalgamation of SH 1 and 2, but the photography was stunning, and Radha Mitchell?  Yes, please!

I wish she was in the game too. Would've been even better. lol

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Parasite Eve I spent days playing this game. Everything about this game was great from the story to the music. I wish they remade this game.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Oh damn yes what a great cool creepy game it is. Gotta find it back. I miss playing it.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Alan Wake is pretty awesome! Great atmosphere and some cool game-play mechanics. Amazing graphics/lighting too!

Re: Best Horror Video Games

The last good horror game I played was The Last of Us. I know a few people who have told me that they didn't finish it because they thought it was too scary. I thought it was just right. And I'm a huge fan of the cinematic games like the Uncharted series and Heavy Rain (obvs PS3 user lol).

Re: Best Horror Video Games

I heard about this one and it looks absolutely very cool. Someday I'll get myself a console. Or a Graphic Card for my PC... Either way, I miss playing some of my old school XBox first gen games like mad...

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Just recently bought a Super Nintendo cartridge of Alien Vs. Predator. Awesome beyond words LOL

Re: Best Horror Video Games

^^^
H3LL yeah, I have it in my SNES Emulator.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

The Last of Us is worth checking out. It's great in every category, especially music.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Music is essential for me. Or noises. Best I've heard along with Myst Riven [old school adventure game] is Skyrim and all the freaking cool Elder Scrolls series. Just pure genius. smile

Half-Life series! Not strictly horror, but there are a handful of horror segments.

Same goes for Fallout. I can never tire of those games.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Very cool tracks. And man, Fallout, still play the old first one and I DIG IT!!! big_smile

I'm a huge fan of Morrowind the third Elder Scroll and the main theme is just fantastic...

But Riven's is very hard to beat. So damn great, fits the game play perfectly.

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas for 360 and PC have to be my favorite games. I know i must of put in at least 1000 hours on Fallout 3 and 500 on Fallout New Vegas. I can't stress how scary it is being chased by 3 death claws and no stimpaks Haha. Also triggering mines and traps get me still! The cannibals in Andale, inbred hillbillies on Point Lookout, The Trogs in The Pitt, and the Abominations on The Mothership Zeta are scary as hell. This game influenced what movies i like now. I lose myself in post-apocalypse sometimes. roll

Favorite track on Galaxy News Radio

Re: Best Horror Video Games

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem for GameCube was probably by far the best horror game I've ever played.  Also used to love the Fatal Frame games.
