Best RPG Horror Games

When it comes to horror games one of the most popular is the RPG Horror Games. But whenever it's Dark, Disturbing, Depressing or just gives you the daily dose of horrifying as long as they're in the RPG style anything goes!

The Top Ten

1 Ib Ib


I love how this game messes with your emotions. For example, when Garry dies, you feel really bad. However, the reason you do is because of some amazing character development. When Garry carried Ib to safety and saved her from Mary- even his ultimate death sacrificing himself for Ib made you fight back tears when he died. Well done.

The character Mary really puzzles me. I don't know who I like more- Garry or Mary. While Mary did try to kill Ib, it was probably because of how insane the gallery had made her. I think that's why she did most of these evil things. I also think that Mary is smarter than she's taken for. Like when Garry was talking about the roses, she instantly pretended like an ignorant child to change the subject- and it worked. I also think the reason she offered the rose trade is because she knew from after she closed in on Ib how much Garry cared for him. She used this as his weakness and sometimes wins. I do admit, she was kind of evil. ...more

Wow, how isn't this number one. It's crazy emotional; I almost cried. It has the most memorable characters. And, you don't even need any gaming skills to play! It's not too hard, but still a bit of a challenge. Love it!

I really love this game. It really makes you think. I personally think it has the best story out of all these. It's also well developed, and has some pretty awesome scares!

#1 on the list... HAH! SUCK IT UNDERTALE FANS...

2 Mad Father

Mad Father... It was really I ending how the ending went... Usually it would be the other way around because the character had learned the moral of everything that happened, but instead, she follows in her *spoilers* footstep. You may not know what I'm talking about until you've played the game.

The game has a lot of easy puzzle and the cute little couples were simply amazing.

Mad Father has an amazing plot and amazing scares! Definitely my favorite!

This game is pretty good I like the true ending cause not every hero have to had a good ending and live happily ever after

3 The Witch's House

The Witch's House gets better as it progresses. At first I did not think this game was serious because of the teddy bear part. I didn't find that as scary as I did hilarious.

The plot, art, details, and puzzles are all good. There are also multiple endings. No complaints. Very good for a free game.

4 Yume Nikki Yume Nikki

Really Yume Nikki is just one of if not the best horror game I've ever played. It does deliver in it's Dark, Disturbing and Scary aspects and seriously this game's levels & concepts are warped beyond all belief but really what this game succeeds at most is it's depressing factor.
Once you have gotten all 24 effects and place them as eggs in the nexus you wake up madotsuki head too the balcony find a step stool or something. And Madotsuki tries to do the unthinkable. She jumps off the balcony now normally in video games the suicide either doesn't go through or it doesn't kill them but here Madotsuki does die. All it took was that moment which made me think that this game is nothing but pure art. Yume Nikki's Ending theme is my favorite video game song of all time and it's designs being able too make anyone confused and horrified Yume Nikki is one experience you have to play for yourself but only if you are prepared for how Warped and sorrowful this game is. Well that ...more - nerffan8000

Boring. The concept seemed okay, but not well implemented at all. I have tried to play this game twice, but it is just so boring I keep dropping it. I'm not sure why it has so many votes. Maybe the ending is cool, but to me it's not worth the hours of doing practically nothing but getting lost. Nothing special about the art or soundtrack either.

Sorry to be so negative.

5 The Crooked Man

This games has some interesting details that other rpg games don't have, for example, shooting and killing the crooked man. Most rpg games just have you run away or it automatically makes the character you're playing do the actions for you. The crooked mans story is very sad and touching and how there are a lot of options, rather than just one at the very end.

This game feels like silent hill


This is a good story with great (believable) characters and many subtleties those who play horror games for jump scares and good graphics may miss out on.

*spoiler* what makes this game scary to me is the possibility that the Crooked Man is not actually some supernatural being, but a part of the character and by extension, a part of all of us. Someone any one of us could have to face at some point. If you enjoyed psychological horror films like the Babadook and Paper House, this game is a MUST for you.

6 Paranoiac

I always go back and play this once in a while. It's like a movie. If anyone wants to play just for the story, I suggest using walkthroughs, because it gets annoying sometimes.

7 Mogeko Castle

AaH! Why isn't this higher? This my absolute favorite game of all time! The characters are nice, we get a well though out plot, and some laughs along the way! Go MOGEKO CASTLE!

This is a confusing game mid way but is still a fun horror if you don't mind cute desings and a lot running, and murder don't forget murder.
I really recommend it if you enjoy games where you have little control of what you can do to them that are after you.

I'll be honest, out of all the RPG horror games I've played, this is actually the one I enjoyed most. What about it? I don't know. It might be because unlike most of these other games, it barely has backstory AT ALL. It's a simple idea: four kids stuck in a mansion they were exploring. It's so simple that it's fun. While the puzzles may seem somewhat unclear, that seems to be part of the theme of a lot of RPG horror games... for some reason. - Nebby_

It's a rather simple game. Not bad, but don't play if you don't like being chased.

10 Corpse Party

Probably the best game I've played; perhaps not that scary, but the Japanese voice acting, the sounds and the storyline are amazing! Definitely worth your time

Very intense. Scary. Fun. Characters are amazing. Great story. The feels. What more could ask for?

This game is a game that takes many hours to complete. With two more games involving the characters from this one, and another with new characters released, it's manyadays of fun and suspense as you delve into the world of Corpse Party!

It's the most scariest game I have never SEEN! �"☻

The Newcomers

? Off

This was one of the most strange, weird, disturbing games I have ever played. And I loved it. This may not be very much in the horror section of games, but it is still surreal enough to give you a few chills. Playing as the Batter throughout the game made you feel a sense of accomplishment in defeating the spectres. But as you go along in the game, a new sense of dread appears as you begin to think, "Whos the bad guy? " The battles could be a bit frustrating, though the auto fight option makes it slightly easier. The scenery is strange, as each place is either green, purple, red, and other colors. The whole backstory on where you even are is a mystery. Is it supposed to be in the future? The past? In a whole different universe? Maybe that question was already answered, but I'm not good at figuring things out. Which is why I used a walkthrough for most of the game. The puzzles could be hard if you're not a puzzle person. Although some of them could be fun. The battles are ...more

The Contenders

11 Blank Dream

It's an amazing rpg horror game that I just watched Markiplier play. It deals with dark subject matter but, overall it has a great story. It has 5 endings I think and ending #1 made me super happy. It is just an amazing horror game

This is just so amazing, it's really my favourite after Ib. The plot literally made me cry, like, A LOT. It's just... You need to play. Seriously.

It makes my cry, so it is good... Well, the backstories are good. The concept is cool. As a free game, it is amazing.

12 Misao

This game is really interesting- although... You die A LOT. The story line is really interesting. It's basically about a girl, Misao, who just disappeared 3 (I think) months ago. Everyone in the class spreads rumors that she's long dead but no one really knows. You play as a normal girl that wanted to be friends with Misao. You little by little learned why Misao died.

It was interesting how the believed culprit isn't the real culprit. (The one who killed Misao). Each character had their own back stories to their actions taken in the story which makes the story interesting because not very many rpg game have a back story to the characters.

13 Undertale

Not really a horror game, though...

Amazing game, with good character development and awesome story. Easily one of the best.

Excellent Rpg which might make you regret your action during your First blind playthrough!

Even though its not a horror rpg game its still scares me when I first saw omega flowey

14 A Hidden in the Shadows 2
15 Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea

Adorable. Pretty messed up, but adorable nonetheless. The "horror" aspect of this game won't be 'til later in the game, so have a little patience if you're looking for horror. Also, just a tip if you will play this game, don't grind because it becomes too easy when you're like leagues (lol, ocean pun) above your enemies, but then again, it IS the story we're after, are we knot? Lastly, I believe that the music is one of the best parts of this game

I really really loved this game I cried a bit and had a ton of fun playing it (tip: do some point farming it helps a lot! ) (tip:if you get the first normal ending don't end with it there try again)

16 Pocket Mirror

Pocket Mirror is completely perfect. I really live the grafics, the characters and the story. It have a incredibke development that any of the rest of RPG games have. It deserves more attention!

Ridiculously girly and the MC is so naive sometimes, but overall, it's a great game. The artwork and the cutscenes and the characters' designs are so beautiful and pretty and the personalities of the MCs are each unique. The plot line of this game leaves you theorizing who (spoiler) Goldia, Lisette, Harpae, Fleta, and Egliette are and what they did in the past. It is the perfect mix of creepy dolls, insane little girls (as if they aren't already in real life, amiroight), bloody murder, and beautiful graphics.

17 One Night Full Circle
18 Mermaid Swamp

This game was really nice to me it just has a good atmosphere, it's a little repeated but it has an ok story and I do think you should play
