9 Scariest Video Games of All Time

Smosh writes: It's that time of the year to break out all of the classic horror games. There are so many now that it's really hard to wade through and remember which ones are the ones that are worth replaying. Luckily for you, I did that hard work for you. It took me a month and my hair is now completely white from shock, but it was worth. I just want to make you happy. Look how good I am to you. Here are the scariest video games. (Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly, Left 4 Dead, PC, PS3, Resident Evil 4, Silent Hill 2, Wii, Xbox 360)

Stopped reading at Resident Evil 4. Whoever wrote this is a wimp.

agree with Fatal frame 2 and Silent Hill 2 ONLY, nothing more...
Manhunt 2, really? COD zombies & left 4 dead really? :D :D :D

Fatal Frame 2 was freaky.

Shame my old fat PS3 died before I could finish it. I hope they give it the PS2 classic/HD remake treatment.

Along with, you know, the six-thousand or so other PS2 games that deserve it.

here are few games that were genuinely scary (old & new).

RE1
SH1/2
Dead Space 1/2

F.E.A.R. 1/2
Fatal Frame 2
DOOM 1-3
Alone in the Dark 1-3

Good list, and I'd add the Stalker series and Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth.
segamon  +   991d ago
agreed.

i honestly don't know how you could find RE1 scary
everything between 1 and 4(which i do think was quite scary) but re1 seemed a bit less scary/tensing, probably because of the light most of all.
butif you meant the remake then definently
segamon  +   991d ago
did you play it back in 1996? when you were still young? when gaming was young.. when such experiences were still unique..

if no then you won't understand.
if yes then something is missing.

no more bubbles (what a lame system)
regards,

No Eternal Darkness? GTFO.
zerocrossing  +   991d ago
None of these games are scary! did you upload the wrong list ?
amaguli  +   991d ago
I'm sorry, but I fail to see what makes RE 4, Splatterhouse 3, Manhunt 2, Left 4 Dead, and Call of Duty: Zombies so scary.
r21  +   991d ago
Agreed, list made me laugh XD No Amnesia, Siren or Ju-on game? Hah!
shaun mcwayne  +   991d ago
I think with games and movies you only get out what you take in, by that i mean yourself, if your scared of zombies then l4d will probably scare you. If your scared of repetitive gameplay then cod zombies will scare you to death. We are all born with only 2 fears, fear of sudden loud noises and the fear of falling, the rest we learn, so that means we can unlearn them.

What a poor list. How can you not mention Undying. Must be under 20 yrs old I guess
Games that offer kinect features! Gives me the chills!

Forbidden Siren on the PS3
