Best Survival Horror Video Games

The Top TenXW

1Amnesia: The Dark Descent

You will crap your pants over and over again.

I punched my computer 8 times playing this

2Silent Hill

I like most Shattered Memories, Origins and the new one Downpour... Its way freaky but at the same thing intresting cause once you start playing it... You wanna finish it so bad... Damn

World's best game really! It's story line is so awesome! I've never seen such amazing story-lines!

3Dead Space

Set in the 26th century players are sent on a mission to rescue two mining ships in the far reaches of the galaxy. However, their ship is damaged while trying to dock and the discovery of alien life forces them to fight their way out against Necromorphs, which are deceased humans that have been animated by a mysterious alien organism. - Alexandr

4Resident Evil 2

I have one million problems with stalker being above this.

5Resident Evil: Remake

The original was good, RE4 is completely overrated, RE2 was a fine game but the Remake is Awesome. Keeping everything the same but improving the quality, Resident Evil for the GameCube is the greatest Survival Horror Game I've ever played.

6Resident Evil 4

I don't think Bioshock is horror, so I'm not voting for it. this game, however, is amazing. oit even beats the last of us! - HeavyDonkeyKong

7Outlast

The makers of this game were un-heard of until this masterpiece was released on PC. The vibe of the game is brilliant. I'm not saying the best, after playing Frictional Games Amnesia: The Dark Descent, but it gets you looking over your shoulder for most of the game. Unlike most games, the horror doesn't actually just come from jump scares, there are actually some pretty disturbing things if you haven't got a stomach for gore and torture. The worst, and I'm not spoiling is when your in the lair of The Man Downstairs who has some strange tastes, in the DLC, Outlast Whistleblower. On the subject of the DLC, it is worth playing as much as the first game. Now for me, if a games gameplay is good, its graphics don't have to be top notch. However, in Outlast, the graphics a beautiful. The shadows work, the enemies chasing you move smoothly, fire is excellent, faces are as realistic as anything... One thing that they have done perfectly, is the main characters body. The hands are almost life ...more

8Dead Space 2

It brings you through the dark descent of isaac clark as he goes aboard a ravaged space ship filled with a set of creatures called necromorphs and stands as one of the most frightening games I have ever played.

Dead Space 1 is a perfect horror game in all aspects. Atmosphere, action, combat, story, monsters, variety of gameplay, and characters. Then Dead Space 2 came along and was even better than 1.

Fight with zombies in the space! BEST IDEA EVER

9System Shock 2
10Resident Evil

This is the game that popularized the genre. Sure it hasn't aged well, mostly due to the voice acting and dialogue, but it was a revolutionary game in 1996.

The Contenders

11Slender
12Doom

Great game and the best of the Series!

13Extermination
14Alone in the Dark

Why isn't Alone in the Dark no Number 1?

15Fatal Frame
16Clock Tower

Is one of the first horror games and it's really sacary for me a lot better than silent hill and use a history very macabre.

17F.E.A.R. First Encounter Assault Recon

The spine-tingling tension of F.E.A.R. puts it near the top of the list of the most scary games. Mysterious paramilitary force and eerie interruptions of radio communications are just the beginning of this terrorizing supernatural storyline which will give you more scares than a horror movie! - Alexandr

18Silent Hill 2V1 Comment
19Siren Blood Curse

Siren was banned due to the content in the game. It is such a good game and it's a pity that you can't buy it anymore. - TheGrammarPolice

This game is one of the most dark, hard and realistic of all the times, the story is very incredible and sick.
