Halloween, for most of us gamers its just another holiday where bad movies are shown on cable. Forget that and forget handing out some candy.

I'd love to go through Dead Space 1 again to celebrate Halloween but I know I couldn't do so without getting a little depressed over the direction the franchise is taking. When the game first came out, I fell in love. It gave me the classic Resident Evil feel that I had been missing for so long. Then the second one came out and while still good, it was more action and less horror than its predecessor. Now with the third installment we seem to have even more focus on action, massive amounts of ammunition, and co-op among other fright-killers.
I hate to keep rambling on but GAH! It really irritates me when the potential for excellence is sacrificed to "appeal to a wider audience."

Find the original Fatal Frame wait till midnight. Turn your TV up so it's as loud as when you watch action movies.

And prepare to be scared..really scared.

In fact, you many not make it 20 minutes into the game before you drop the comtroller in fear.

I did this expiriment for year and a majoritiy of the people couldnt do it.

"This game feeds off its creepy atmosphere."

and i have too agree, a game dosnt have to feature blood and grueling deaths to be scary.

Venox20081431d ago (Edited 1431d ago )

atmosphere yes, it's great, but game is far from being scary.. I liked the phrase in a artice "some are saying that its more scarier than Silent Hill" :D nooo way :) and no Fatal frame in list!!!

Agreed, Alan Wake isnt that scary compared to the likes of Amnesia, Siren or Condemned :L

Gamescares1432d ago

Alan Wake could be damn creepy and had an amazing atmosphere, did you play it alone in the dark at night? Thought not.

jc485731432d ago

I'd rather play Deadly Premonition.

EVILDEAD3601432d ago

You clearly never played Alan Wake. Game is one of the most authentic horror experiences out there.

It's not the scariest of them all, but it had the goods.

Alan Wake is a psychological thriller designed for the intellectual.

Those who question it's relevance in a topic entitled "Top 10 Scariest Games to Play on Halloween" clearly don't have the intellectual capability to comprehend Alan Wake's scary tones.

Some people prefer the straight up, non-thinking gore as their preference as to what is scary like Firday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Streets, but understand there are many scare movies that are not all about the mindless violence and monsters. Silence of the Lambs is a great example of this because of it's intellectual level in which the story was being told.

I love Dead Space 1&2 but they are not scary.

Pintheshadows1432d ago

I'd go for Codemned or Amnesia.

Speaking of Codemned, where is 3? I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I know this will sound strange, but in my personal opinion, the 3rd act of Uncharted was the horror game of the generation.

Yeah, I know, it's not a horror game, but from "Unwelcome Guests" onward through the next few chapters the game managed to be terrifying without relying on either jump scares or bad controls. It was just atmospherically frightening, something that most other games just don't do nowadays.

In fact, it was this section of Uncharted that gives me confidence that The Last of Us will live up to expectations.
