Top 10 Best Survival Horror Video Games

The Top Ten
1 Silent Hill Silent Hill Product Image

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

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

2 Amnesia: The Dark Descent Amnesia: The Dark Descent Product Image

Amnesia is by far the scariest video game ever.
You control a character with amnesia who must navigate a castle with no weapons. The only thing he can do is run and hide from the Gatherers that seem to be constantly appearing. You do have a lantern, but the light attracts monsters. However, without it your character will slowly go insane and hallucinate crazy sights and sounds.
You have to really play the game to know how it can effect the amount of sleep you get at night! It is a terrifying horror that truly deserves the top spot.

You will crap your pants over and over again.

3 Dead Space Dead Space Product Image

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.

4 Resident Evil 2 Resident Evil 2 Product Image

Best in the series.

RE4 is not survival horror, it's a 3rd person action game with horror elements sprinkled in.

I have one million problems with stalker being above this.

5 Resident Evil: Remake Resident Evil: Remake Product Image

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.

Best remake ever.
It's a shame RE2 & 3 remakes are RE4 clones.

6 Silent Hill 2 Silent Hill 2 Product Image

This should be number one.

Horror at it's best!

7 Resident Evil 4 Resident Evil 4 Product Image

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!

8 Outlast Outlast Product Image

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

Why ain't this in top 3?

9 Fatal Frame Fatal Frame Product Image

It's not like most survival horror games, you use a camera as a weapon to fight ghosts. Strongly recommend this.

10 Slender Slender Product Image
The Contenders
11 Extermination Extermination Product Image
12 F.E.A.R. First Encounter Assault Recon F.E.A.R. First Encounter Assault Recon Product Image

This is an amzing action horror game but this is NOT a Survival horror game. You don't scavenge for supplies and ammo. No backtracking or puzzles. Not a survival horror. But it's really good as an action horror game.

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!

13 Doom Doom Product Image

Great game and the best of the Series!

14 Resident 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.

15 Dead Space 2 Dead Space 2 Product Image

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.

16 Clock Tower Clock Tower Product Image

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.

17 Galerians Galerians Product Image
18 Alone in the Dark Alone in the Dark Product Image

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

19 System Shock 2 System Shock 2 Product Image
20 Dead Rising Dead Rising Product Image
21 Parasite Eve Parasite Eve Product Image
22 Silent Hill 4: The Room Silent Hill 4: The Room Product Image
23 Silent Hill 3 Silent Hill 3 Product Image
24 Deep Fear
25 Siren Blood Curse Siren Blood Curse Product Image

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.

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