Top 10 Best Horror Games


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 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.

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!

That's my favourite horror game, I have this game on computer and I am very proud of Amnesia the game, because it's very scary, but it has perfect quality and great story! Every day I play it before sleep and around afternoon when I am alone or I am with my friends! - AlexandraMoonDust

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

The best game I have ever played in my life

I'm not much for violent video games, but love this game! - HeavyDonkeyKong

4Five Nights at Freddy's

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

How is this 11? This game is amazing and not is it just frightning, its rumors and mysteries make it spectacular! If only foxy were a girl... Try to get this game way higher!

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

This is better then slender - spodermanfan1000

Its one of the few games that actually scared me O. O

I have this game and I can't play it any more

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?

7Dead 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.

8Slender: 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

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

9Silent Hill

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


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

?P.T. Silent Hills

The Contenders

11Silent Hill 3
12Five 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.

13Manhunt 2
14SCP Contaiment Breach

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

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

One of the best horror games I know.

15Slender: The Arrival
16Left 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

Best videogame ever and it seems to tie in with 28 days later

17Penumbra: Black Plague
18Metro: Last Light
19Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly
20Cry of Fear

Awesome game ever because it has many features and jumpscares I love it! Like you recieve messages on phone
