Favorite horror games


#1. Post Posted: 10-30-2018, 01:41 AM
I'm a big fan of horror games and my favorites are:


Silent Hill - Playstation (the game that used console limitations to create it's amazing atmosphere, at the time there was nothing like it),

Fatal Frame II/Project Zero II: Crimson Butterfly - Playstation 2 (game that legitimately scared me and i'm not so easily scared  Smile , love ghost theme),

Resident Evil 2 - Playstation (great game, best of first three games imo and i like Leon S. Kennedy Big Grin ),

Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare - Dreamcast (great use of lighting and shadows, very tense atmosphere created by spooky music and sound effects),

Clive Barker's Undying - PC (very good horror FPS with magic and demons from creator of Hellraiser).


What are your favorites?

If Doom and Quake can be considered as horror games, then those are two of my favorite ones.

Personal nightmare and the Elvira saga - Amiga

I think the original Silent Hill can't be topped in terms of it nailing the atmosphere and generally unsettling 'spookiness'.

...and a special shout-out to Pac-Man - the original survival-horror! Wink

The Parasite Eve trilogy. I remember a friend of mine played the first game and was amused by it, so I decided to play the game years later.

Yeah, it's one of the best games on GameCube and unique because of sanity effects. I played it long ago but never finished it for some reason. Thanks for reminding me  Smile  , i'm gonna play it again these days for sure.

Yeah, absolutely, first three games are a must play and are the best in series. It's shame that HD Collection is full of bugs and glitches (tried Xbox 360 version which even didn't get any patches).

No love for 4 & 5 or the Spirit Camera spin-off?
The fan translation for 4 on the Wii (which was never released outside of Japan) is really good. Likewise, "Project Zero; Maiden of Black Water" (aka. Fatal Frame V) on the Wii U is also great - digital only release in the US, but Japan and Europe got physical... I picked up the limited edition before it started to rocket in price.

The first one is great... the second one, not so much. I kind of like The 3rd Birthday, but it strays so far from the formula of the original that it's barely a horror game anymore.
