Top Ten Scariest Video Games


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Dead Island

This game is not that scary. Gory above anything else. - Duncan99

82 SlendyTubbies 2

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

83 Sad Satan V 2 Comments
84 Elmo in Grouchland (Game Boy Color)

The intense fear I felt upon looking into the gaping black mouth of Elmo has been uncontested. True horror masterpiece.

HOWW IS THIS SCARY!? - SionicRelations

Gave nightmares for decades

87 Dying Lights
88 Daylight
89 Zumas Revenge V 1 Comment
90 Call 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.

91 S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat
92 Half-Life 2
93 Clive Barker's Undying
94 Cry 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.

95 Team Fortress 2

The scariest part was the microtransactions

96 Game Boy Camera

A camera? Oh and I wanted this when I was a kid and the printer.

Lol GameBoy camera

All because of the effing Run Button


97 Among the Sleep

It's just SCARY! - OakleyTheBeagle

Taking on a kids point of view, u wonder clueless threw a forest of pure death, eventually u hit a dark house almost like your own, you travel threw memories, and all threw it your being chased by the one thing a child can love. its own mother - GingersplashPlays

98 S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl

Oh come on guys this is the scariest game I have ever played and it isn't even on the list! Those creepy crawling mutants completely out of the blue were actually very scary. And when the huge tank jumped at me out of a dark corner I literally fell off my seat... Plus the realistic gun control and awesome environment make it a overall great game. I haven't seen a better storyline in a game in years. Although the rest of the game isn't as scary but the visits to the labs are the scariest ever in a game. You have to play the full game to realize the awesomeness of this game.


99 Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

I know this is new and all but this should be in the top 20 already

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...
