It's in there, #5 - Fatal Frame was called Project Zero in Europe.

Me too but very happy they included the infamous 'Cradle level' from Thief 3, I dont think even Amnesia was as scary as that

The Evil Within could be the next list when the game released

Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb - That giant white crocodile and those sharks scared the hell out of me!

Good list. Take out resident evil and slender (horrible game) and you have an excellent list. And before the haters come, I love resident evil but the games were never scary even when I was young playing re1 for the first time. Thrilling very, scary only from a nostalgia perspective, go back and play re again and you see it's not scary but hilarious because of the awful voice acting.

sorry, but first RE remake was scary, at least for me... slender, not so much (didnt play arrival)

agreed REmake WAS scary with the hunchback witch-like woman and the crimson heads

I agree the resident evil games weren't scary back then and they aren't scary now it has jump scares but that's really it.

When I first played slender the folder was called forest explorer and the description said look for bunnies in the forest....and when i found my first page the hair on my neck stood straight when i saw the slender hahahaha,ctrl alt delete hahaha

Good list but I refuse to believe anyone was scared by any of the F.E.A.R games they have jump scares and jump scares are far different from actual horror.The kind of horror you see in games like silent hill and even slender

silent hill was the only game that jumped me and obscure the aftermath but no not scary to me guess im just to used to horror lol.
