To be honest, I think the classic is scarier and more fun that the 2nd one. But it is definitely still scary.

86Call of Duty: World at War

Nothing is scarier than the reality of war. - aeromaxx777

Its terrifying when you realize this type of brutality was real and happened

How is it scary? It's just danger in a game. not scary. More just sad.

90Clive Barker's Undying
91Cry of Fear

One of the best horror games ever created with amazing gameplay and a depressing story which can drive you to suicide.

It's a standalone game on Steam which is FREE!

This game has the perfect jumpscare in my opiniĆ³n, in this game, you would be taking pictures on the walls and floors that has a x marked, if you take the last picture on the x, a door shows up, n when you go in you would hear someone screaming and when you go pass by it, a creepy face pops in front of you and jumpscares you, not knowing if its going to happen.

So there's a lot of debate over whether or not this is just a jumpscare... Trust me, it's not. First, you need to read the article on it (especially the expeditions down...). Then download the game. It's randomly generated, so you never know when something's behind you, and you never know when the end will come. All you feel is this building fear and realization that the further you go, the closer you are to it...


This game has... Secrets... Let's just say that something happens in the Dan and Phil play through that is never seen anyone do before. This is unique... the first. Exe.
If someone asked me for the one style of game that I refuse to play, then. Exe would be my choice.

Terrible. If you die at the beginning you go back to the beginning... of course? But... if you die in the middle of the game (making it through without dying) you go back to the beginning of the game... and if you make it through the whole game without dying and you die right as the game is about to end... YOU GO BACK TO THE BEGINNING AGAIN! MOST ANNOYING GAME I've EVER PLAYED.

How was this not on the list yet. It's not just difficult, but screws with you a LOT.
