Top 10 Best Survival Horror Video Games

The Top Ten
1 Silent Hill

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 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.

3 Dead 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.

Pretty difficult but it's the best! No doubt.

4 Resident 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.

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

5 Resident Evil 2

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.

6 Resident Evil 4

RE4 is not a survival game, but it's too good to not give any credit. Consider this more as an honorable mention

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!

7 Silent Hill 2

Nobody can add to the conversation of what makes this game so special. Truly one of the all-time greats!

8 Outlast

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 like, while climbing you see the right parts of the body and not your shoulder for example. You can leave footprints when treading in blood. It all works perfectly and makes for a horror game with great potential. The story works as well, and after playing the game and its DLC, everything slots together without any moments of thinking "Hang on, what about...".If I were you, I'd be looking out for games made by Red Barrel, because they know what they're doing when making a game. Thank you.

9 Fatal Frame

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

10 Extermination
The Contenders
11 Slender
12 Galerians
13 Dead Space 2

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.

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 Alone in the Dark

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

16 F.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!

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.

17 Clock 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.

18 Enemy Zero
19 Parasite Eve
20 Silent Hill 3
21 Deep Fear
22 Silent Hill 4: The Room
23 Alien: Isolation
24 Siren 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.

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

25 Doom 3

Scared the crap out of me in every corner!
