Scariest Games

:iconavictoriay:
AvictoriaY Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I want to play a game that will leave me paranoid and scarred for life. I have an Wii and an Xbox 360 and I got Rise of Nightmares for Christmas (which is creepy but I haven't gotten very far in the game yet). What's the scariest video game you've ever played? Any suggestions? I've heard that Silent Hill 2 and Amnesia were pretty scary.

If you want something quick and jump-scare-y look up 'Slender'. It's an indie freebie, but it might tide you over between the bigger games. :)

Thanks but no thanks. I'm not a huge friend of Slender. But thanks anyway :)

Silent Hill scared the crap out of me when I was a kid... why the hell my parents actually bought that for me at age 12, I will never know lol. Fatal Frame, already mentioned as well, is another game that had me awake all night with the light on. There are also a lot of indie PC games out there that are pretty scary. You can find various sites that rate their top 10 scariest indie games. Some that I have played and loved were Amnesia the Dark Descent, Eri, and Penumbra: Overture. One thing I did like was their are a lot of mods/stories out for Amnesia that people have done.

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem is a fantastic Gamecube game, and one of the few games I can actually call scary.

That game changed my life for the better.
So much thought and effort put into it, it's a rare jewel indeed.

..And to think that once i could not see beyond the veil of our reality, to see those who dwell behind. I was once a fool...

Amnesia Dark Descent, and Penumbra are the only games that really destroy me. It all depends on what scares you though, but if subtlety is your weakness then Slender and Silent Hill 2 are a good fit.

You have to try Siren: Blood Curse! I love that it's not just straight-up horror by throwing gore and violence at you, but it's also got such a haunting and mind-fucking story. Gotta check it out, it's such an underrated game and not too well known, but it won't disappoint, imo.

Yeah, and they make disturbing giggling sounds too, haha. Later on, they sort of evolve into half human/insect zombies, which creeps me out since I hate bugs.

You should definitly take a look at Metro 2033 (PC and consoles). Just great amtosphere and survival elements. It's a linear FPS, so gameplay is VERY effective but not as overburdened as in rpg's or sandbox-games.

And if you don't dread playing games that are a tad older, I'd recommend
"System Shock 2" (PC). That game left in the fetal position in my chair, whimpering and clamping my shivering hands around the wrench it gave me to defend myself against the dangers it would throw at me... and that was maybe 2 hours after the tutorials and into the game.
It's a pretty long and complex fps-RPG, so not a everyones-game, but definitly deeper and more thoughtful than the whole garbage that gets filed under horror or rpg nowadays.

I too have heard Silent Hill 2 a lot, but I have also heard that the HD-rerelease is a pretty big f#ck-up. So the original Silent Hill 2, for the PS2, is probably where you want to go.

Amnesia is kind of a double-edged sword, but yes, it is pretty scary once it sucked you in. sometimes it just loses it's flow though...
And it's an indie-game which shows through sometimes. But definitly a worth a try.
(Unlike the whole hype around slender and it's various offsprings)

If you'd like some atmosphere to, but aren't totally focused on the "true horror"-aspect, I would recommend Limbo. It's a monochrome 2D-Platformer with physic-elements, that definitly gave me some chills. If you're into that sort of thing i could maybe give you some tips how to truly enjoy it, because it's like a gourmet menu, you can't just gulp it down like fast-food-casuel games.

Oh and wait, DON'T try any of the Dead Space games, or at least do a bigger research via Let's Plays and gameplay-videos. Why? Because if you're looking for actual Horror-Games they're a waste of money paired with a sleeping potion.

Hope I could help you ;)

Sadly, I don't have a PS2 so I'll have to play Silent Hill 2 on the Xbos 360. It can't be too terrible. But I'll definitely check out the others. Thank you :)

Dark Souls is pretty creepy but the scares really come from surprises and overwhelming odds.

Breakdown for original Xbox works on 360, it is very unique (ex:first person roundhouse kicks)
You run into enemies that are inhuman and seem unstoppable (sometimes they are so you run).
The whole game feels like a hallucination, but is one of the harder 3D games (that are good) that I have played.

Metro 2033, it has violence but it's scary. I would say it's a survival horror game, in a post-apocalyptic Russia. You should play it!

I LOVE System Shock 2. Although I wasn't terrified, the beginning of the game before you fight an infected crew mate was somewhat unnerving. After that, I just stuck to my guns (literally) and kept moving. Some of the monsters like the spiders and the cyborg midwife are another thing...
