Top 10 Best Horror Gamesbigblackdragon
The Top Ten
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 it's 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.
Scary as hellV 13 Comments
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!
I played it and I shat my pants so much, at some point I couldn't continueV 14 Comments Visit Website9
Man, I can't forget my first experience with this game... It's still unsurpassed in terms of how sick and twisted it is. The scariest game made so far.
How is this not #1?! This game is INCREDIBLY realistic and yet still scares you!
Good storyline, great graphics, awesome gameplay, epic DLC.
The scariest horror game I've ever seen.
Genuine horror right here...and on my face whilst first experiencing it!V 15 Comments
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.
First time I played it was on my home theater and total darkness. I almost needed new unaware! Amazing, best atmosphere ever
I've never played the game, because I've heard it's insanely horrific. - Jammer196
Best by far... on this list... Shouldn't alien isolation be on here? - molassesV 5 Comments
This game! Just, no! I got to the fourth night as I am typing this, and all I can say is no! This game isn't your average horror game, where you can walk around with a flashlight and get jumpscared while climbing up a ladder by some crazy alien and still be alive. This is a game where you can't move from your office chair and all you do is look at cameras, shut doors, and turn lights on/off. Doesn't sound scary yet? Well, there are four animatronics that have their minds of their own at night and try to break into your office and kill you. There is Bonnie the Bunny, the purple/bluish one that slowly creeps down the west hall to get to your office and jumpscare you while you are looking at your cameras. Often, you will see Bonnie at your door when you are flashing your lights, trying to see if any animatronic is there. There is also Chica the Duck, the yellow one that goes down the east hall and tries to break into your office. Chica attacking is a bit more rare than Bonnie attacking, ...more
I like the game, but I'm not a fan girl. I mean, it has a good and complex story (see Game Theory), but I'm still not a fan girl. - LaST_LiGHT
If you are talking about the original game, it isn't scary anymore, but back then, it was terrorifying. The gameplay was so unique and was never seen in a horror game, or any game. Nowadays, this is probably the last good horror series left.
I love this game!V 44 Comments
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
Great atmosphere. RE5 was good only with Co-Op, and RE6 was a generic action game. RE7 plain sucked. It was more like Outlast or something, where are the characters of the RE series? Resident Evil is dead.V 3 Comments
The best horror games are made in Japan. This game has original gameplay, and original story.
Its one of the few games that actually scared me O. O
This guy is so hard I can't even collect all of the pages!
I have this game and I can't play it any more
Not a scary game at all, just stupid the jumpscare isn't even scary - christangrantV 4 Comments
Do you guys play this game?
it's the best scary game everrr
This game isn't even a horror game.
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
An really amazing mixture of FPS and horror game... An All rounder horror game, will keep you at the edge of your seat
This game is very dated by today's standards and can be a lot to undertake if you've never played any other games like it before, however I must say that this game truly changed my life and the types of games that I was into when I first played it. I bought this game on the last day of 2012 on my PS3 that I had just got for Christmas along with the first Metal gear solid(my favorite video game of all time along with this and silent hill 2)and I was actually scared to play it because I had never owned a horror game before. When I finally got the nerve to play it it looked So old that I didn't think it was even gonna scare me at all. IT DID. This is still one of my all time favorite games even through it can be tough to follow at times. I love this game so much that I recently bought a mint condition original copy of it for the PS1(which I don't even own) just so that I could just so I could have it. If you are into adventure games this is one of the best, if you want a game with class ...more
This was the only game that I was scared to even play. Great story, great ambiance, great music, great puzzles.
Great suspense, great music and great horror - RainbowArtist191
Man, this game should be in te top of the list. The best Horror Game I ever played! Sorry for my bad English.
SOMA messed with me on a philosophical, existential level, that most horror games simply wouldn't attempt.
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!
The whole slender series scared the heck outta me I can't play them anymore
Cummon this is the game that really freaked me out
THIS GUY IS SO NOR SCARY he's JUST A GUY IN A TUXEDO AND WITH NO FACE AND STALKS YOU IN THE NIGHT! YOU CALL THAT SCARY?! (yes) - RainbowArtist191
Arguably the most well made horror game of all time. It has an incredible atmosphere and is a fantastic adaptation of the SCP Foundation series. It is fantastically well made as well, with over 20 SCP's if I'm not mistaken, all acting like their SCP Foundation descriptions, especially SCP-173, SCP-106 and SCP-420-J. Yes, SCP-420-J is a joke SCP but it still matches the description. As a huge fan of the SCP series, this is on my personal top 10 games of all time and it's sad to see that it isn't even in the top 10 of this 'Best Horror Games' list
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
SCP-106 Is WAY to scary because he can go in his pocket diemensionV 4 Comments
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
For this game to really fun you either need co op or online
Best videogame ever and it seems to tie in with 28 days later
Oh no someone is behind meh I'm gonna burn yoou alaiiive
The definitive horror game experience. Everything is this game is just about perfect, with choices that actually matter and many collectibles to be found around the landscapes. It is not only one of the best horror games of all time, but one of the greatest games in general. It is gaming's best attempt at an interactive movie, and it is absolutely fantastic. The story is engrossing, the characters are all likable, the acting is top notch, the gameplay is extremely fluid and easy, and the game throws huge plot twists that will blow your mind. This game also LOVES to throw jump scares out at you a lot, so be warned. Also, a little tip for the PlayStation Camera owners: if you plug the camera in and have it face you, the game will record all of your reactions to the jump scares, starting the recording seconds before and ending seconds after, so it won't take up too much space on your hard drive. I love looking back at those and seeing how much of a puss I am. This game is one of the few ...more
Seriously, how is this not in the top ten? How is it possibly not even in the top 50?
Its not really the scariest horror game but the beautiful and best horror game
This deserves to be higher on the list. Slender isn't that scary.V 3 Comments
I'm a cold blooded person who plays horror games to laugh actually however, this is the only game I could NOT play alone. Just.. Scary as hell.
Scared the hell out of me when I Played it first time... very disturbing and scary atmosphere and the jump scares are like AHAAHAAH!
THIS game is one of the most scariest games I ever played. The jumpscares are so creepy they scare the hell outta me and I almost made crap. This is like the Ouija 😬😬😬 - RainbowArtist191
Best horror game is this
Awesome game ever because it has many features and jumpscares I love it! Like you recieve messages on phone
This game is FUN, especially when it gets your heart racing. Good fun!
That's my favourite horror game on second place and it's very funny how I saw PewDiePie have been played it and when he saw a dog in his part 6 of gameplaying after he type the code, he said: Oh I forgot about the doggy, ooo ah! No, no, no, no, no girl screaming* and he insulted the dog "F*** you, F*** you" and he continue to screaming like a little girl and he made me laugh so hard, because from this moment! - AlexandraMoonDust
Scariest game from the Slender series! It’s so awesome! They put slender a face, he has a moving animation and more! I recommend you playing it! BEST HORROR GAME EVER! - Gabo147
This game is really so scary...
I still haven't completed it as yet - Ananya
This isn't your ordinary dating sim game. The females there are so psychologically disturbing and mysterious. I love how the game presents creepy twists. Not to mention this game is FREE. I recommend people to download it on Steam. - MillieTrina_Prower
Number 35? That is insane.
There is a lot of unnoticeable depth in this game that flies over the average player's head. I especially loved how Monika was self-conscious she was truly alone, and hacked the game from Steam. That probably means she logged into your account. I loved how she changed all the characters at her will. Who can forget the ending song either? Just perfect. - GodFlowey
Doki Doki at 33? This is wrong.
To all who read this, vote here even if you haven't played this game. And then head over to steam and download. You will know you've voted right.
This game breaks the 4th wall. this ain't any other game that just scares you with jumpscares. the horror in this game happens in your computer. you don't have a mask anymore. you, not any player you are playing, is in a high level of danger as you play the game, getting targeted by a character in the game. the amount of gore in this game and the eerieness with the music is insane in a good way. not some fnaf game (which is pretty eerie too). but you are not mike afton or william afton or anything, you are YOU, being tortured and forced to delete and listen to all the girls confessions as you watch them be tortured and forced to do horrible things, like die. its no simple logic game where you figure out puzzles. you actually have to go the games file, which have been manipulated IN the game. its like the game controls the files, not the files control the game. you have to fix everything that has happened. its backwards. its twisted. its sickening. its AMAZING! - ItsAShipDadV 1 Comment
Atmospherically amazing especielly for the time
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
This one is a masterpiece. Why it is not even in the top 10?
Should definitely be in the top 10, it's brilliant.
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
Why is the original in the top tens? This game should be in the top tens! WAY better then the original, and the most popular online, too!
Best sequel to the best game ever.
How can it be on 45 it should be on the top 10
Needs to be higher - Spiderman209942
This game is Supper well maid! its top 5 Worthy!
Why is this in 39th place this is one of the best games on earth and kids can play it too this is the best horror game on earth
One of my favorite horror games
The best horror game in my opinion! - SachiyoHasegawa
Terrifying why in the first minute these zombies suck you through the floor should be at least number 5
I liked the old alone in the dark for ps better
I heard this was bad...
This game is legitimately scary, with your childhood terrors of a teacher chasing you around with a yardstick. The title is a misnomer (do not get this for edutainment purposes).
Lol. This is the scariest game on planet earth! EDUCATIONAL GAMES ARE SCARY!
I LOVE THIS GAME ITS MY LIFE! I still hate math though.. please do not tell Baldi...
Truly the work of a genius. We need more horror games like this!
