The Top TenXW

1Silent Hill 2

By far one of the most scary and disturbing survival-horror games out there.
Great story, crazy characters, horrific environments, eerie atmosphere and what enemies make of Silent Hill 2 my all time favorite horror genre video game.

Surely a great game, it deserves the first place:). It is truely a game worth the invest your time in. Srry for bad englisch

Hell it's the best, must be number one. It can give chills down your back. Environment is horrifying and dark, monsters scary and most of all pyramid head.

One of the best games I have ever played. Ever.

2Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Oh yeah, the fact that these creatures are just straight up stalking about in the dark while you wonder around in an abandoned castle filled with monsters that will kill you with no way to defend yourself whatsoever in the dark is totally terrifying! Oh yeah, and you deal with all this while losing your sanity, slowly slipping into insanity with every moment that passes by while you explore that God forsaken place! Not only that, but multiple gamers, including the #1 subscribed channel in YouTube, Pewdiepie, have gained fame from playing this game (or slender, but we're not talking about that) due to the horror they had to face and share with the internet. Yeah, this deserves this spot since so many people peed in their pants to escape this game.

This should be the first! This game is very scary, good atmosphere, good sound effect, good story, challenging... imagine that you don't have any weapon to protect yourself from monster.. I think this gane is not the first because this game is new, you absolutely have to play it

Nothing scarier than Amnesia in a dark room with a headset on. Be prepared to crap your pants playing this game!

This game is legit frightening and will have your stomach cringing in fear at every corner. - Mcgillacuddy

4Five Nights at Freddy's

This game! Just, no! I got to the fourth night as I am typing this, and all I can say is no! This game isn't your average horror game, where you can walk around with a flashlight and get jumpscared while climbing up a ladder by some crazy alien and still be alive. This is a game where you can't move from your office chair and all you do is look at cameras, shut doors, and turn lights on/off. Doesn't sound scary yet? Well, there are four animatronics that have their minds of their own at night and try to break into your office and kill you. There is Bonnie the Bunny, the purple/bluish one that slowly creeps down the west hall to get to your office and jumpscare you while you are looking at your cameras. Often, you will see Bonnie at your door when you are flashing your lights, trying to see if any animatronic is there. There is also Chica the Duck, the yellow one that goes down the east hall and tries to break into your office. Chica attacking is a bit more rare than Bonnie attacking, ...more

The only game to leave me in literal tears, and I'm a 16 year old guy who listens to death metal.

I remember how scared I was of this... - FlowerlilySundrops

4? Above sh 3? This game sucks!

How is this not #1?! This game is INCREDIBLY realistic and yet still scares you!

Good storyline, great graphics, awesome gameplay, epic DLC.

Scariest game I've ever played. Its graphics, the jumpscares, the atmosphere... I barely slept for a week! How is this not #1?

This is actually a really good game compared to FNAF, full of intense scenes and making your heart pound. - IAmNotARobot

TO scary for all

6Dead Space

Dead Space is such an amazing game. The horror and skill required to play a third person shooter, combined with the kind of play style required for this game it is both challenging and fun for any gamer...

The game is refreshing and was a great start to an amazing series...

Should be higher, its just plain awesome.

I've never played the game, because I've heard it's insanely horrific. - Jammer196

Why is this not in the top 10? The most original horror game I've played.

7Slender

Very suspensful, because, who wouldn't be scared when there's a guy with NO FACE stalking you in the woods? And scary drums in the background that come from nowhere?

8F.E.A.R

I play previous version of this game. it's like a thriller game some places goast comes like a Hollywood movie... definitely I play this version you try it...

This game should be the first one on this list, if you've played it then you know what I mean, such a scary game with a great storyline.

This should be higher than all these games it scares the crap of me and it's so fun and the story line is amazing

9Silent Hill

This was the only game that I was scared to even play. Great story, great ambiance, great music, great puzzles.

Man, this game should be in te top of the list. The best Horror Game I ever played! Sorry for my bad English.

10Slender: The Eight Pages

This game so scary you walk in the dark with only a flashlight and a camera trying to find 8 pages that are hidden in the woods WHILE BEING STALKED AND HUNTED BY A TALL MAN IN A SUIT AND TIE named Slender and when slender is coming closer to you your camera gets covered in static and a high pinched sound comes you see tentacles then the pitch gets MAX loud the screen goes dark then Slenders face is on the camera covered in static and then you DIE! SCARIEST GAME IN MY LIVE!

The whole slender series scared the heck outta me I can't play them anymore

11Dead Space 2
12Metro: Last Light

This game is hard.
The graphics are amazing.
Great story.
Great gameplay.

13Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly

The best horror games are made in Japan. This game has original gameplay, and original story.

14SCP Contaiment Breach

This game is brilliant, because you never know with terrifying monster you'll encounter! Will it be SCP 173 The statue? Or will it be SCP 049 the plague doctor? Maybe SCP 106 the old man? Who knows? I recommend playing it

The problem with big industry horror games is that they're not even scary. This game got everything right about horror. You don't need jumpscares for horror. Jumpscares are for the weak. The variety of strange items is a bonus and the environment is extremely eerie. You never know when you'll see SCP-173 chilling around. Then you blink and you're dead. The blinking mechanic is brilliant and just adds onto the things this game got right. The game gives a sense of insecurity which isn't given with most horror games. - Cazaam

15Five Nights at Freddy's 2

This just is more scary than the first, but I like the time-feel of the earlier one. I actually feel it could be in the '90's and this game is to 2014-feeling for a game set in 1987. - lolfmn13

Best sequel to the best game ever.

16Manhunt 2
17Silent Hill 4: The Room

I'm a cold blooded person who plays horror games to laugh actually however, this is the only game I could NOT play alone. Just.. Scary as hell.

Scared the hell out of me when I Played it first time... very disturbing and scary atmosphere and the jump scares are like AHAAHAAH!

18Silent Hill 3
19Left 4 Dead

I wouldn't consider this horror, unless you are talking about a hunter appearing out of nowhere. Other than that it's not scary. In fact its not even in the horror genre, I don't know why its up here.

Probably the best zombie game ever made... Never get bored of this one
