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

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! ;)

Outlast ( Back before it became extremely popular. )
Silent Hill ( I watched the first one get played ) I really need to give the whole series a try though.

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.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R and Metro 2033 is no pure horror, but they have a true spooky moments.

Code Veronica is my all time favorito classic game from the mighty Dreamcast.

Amnesia: the dark descent... if you play this game with headspeakers, alone and at night, you will crap your pants. Guaranteed.

There are only two Parasite Eve games, you silly!

Jokes aside my favorites are the original Silent Hill, Parasite Eve 1-2, Forbidden Siren, the first Dead Space.
Honorable mentions for Cold Fear and Echo Night Beyond.

Favourite of all for me must be res evil remake on the cube, then I guess Silent Hill 2, I get goosebumps just thinking about the music for SH2.

There's just too many really good horror games (thankfully), even the fairly naff ones are decent, I'm playing Run Like Hell for the PS2 today, just got the crowbar !

Silent Hill games always had some good and scary music.
Never heard of Run Like Hell for PS2, i'm going to watch some gameplay vids.

Nice picks guys.
