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.
