23SCP 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

One of the best horror games I know.

27Clock Tower
28Resident Evil 2
29Doom 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 ...more

30Five 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.

31Alone in the Dark
32Haunting Ground

This one is a masterpiece. Why it is not even in the top 10?

Should definitely be in the top 10, it's brilliant.
