The Top Ten

Amnesia: The Dark Descent
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
I love zombies, my favourite movie is Dawn Of The Dead 1978 and I love Doom 3, Painkiller and Bioshock... But I cried from fear when I saw the Amnesia monster, and jumped back in my dinner plate!
Nothing scarier than Amnesia in a dark room with a headset on. Be prepared to crap your pants playing this game!

2Silent 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 its 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.

3Slender: 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!
Cummon this is the game that really freaked me out

4Resident Evil 4

The best game I have ever played in my life

This is the best horror game ever created be sure to go toilet earlier playing this

5Resident Evil 6

6Resident Evil 5

7Left 4 Dead
Probably the best zombie game ever made... Never get bored of this one
Best videogame ever and it seems to tie in with 28 days later

8Penumbra: Overture
This game is FUN, especially when it gets your heart racing. Good fun!

9Resident Evil Outbreak File #2

10Doom 3
Doom 3 for its time had the best graphics and realistic lighting of any game, and was easily the scariest sci-fi shooter of all time. Even today, it's still a horror masterpiece. While not quite on the levels of say, Amnesia, the exceptional FPS aspect of the game makes up for it.

Imagine walking through an eerily quiet, dark, metallic, and claustrophobic corridor, flashlight in hand. The radio is now quiet after a good 10 minutes of hearing your fellow marines scream and desperately cry for help as they are brutally slaughtered. As you turn a corner, you hear a shriek behind you and instinctively turn just as a fireball hits you. You pull out your shotgun, but with your flashlight gone, you can barely see the thing that is rapidly approaching you, ready to pounce. As the 12-eyed demon slashes at your face, you fire and blow him to pieces, his body turning to a pile of glowing ashes as he lets out a final ear-splitting shriek.

I've beat this game so many times and while it does get less scary, every playthrough is pulse-pounding and exhilirating. Amazing game!

The Contenders

More comments about F.E.A.R

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?

17Fatal Frame III: The Tormented

18Silent Hill

19Resident Evil: Dead Aim

20Dead 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.
