4 Best Games to Play Alone In The Dark

NoBSGamers writes: "Horror movies are for wussies. If you want a real scare then you need to play a survival horror game. Let's be honest, when you watch a movie your level of engagement is limited, and it can be easy to zone out. Gaming however, keeps you focused by force. Lets take a look at some of the best of the creepers in gaming."

Don't see why Deadspace isn't on here, a lot of people are saying it's far scarier and seems to be everything that was done right that Resident Evil 5 should have done.

For me, Dead Space, RE-make for Cube, Doom 3, and Silent Hill 3 and 4 are all freaky as hell!

Doom III are you kidding? With the weapons you have there isn't anything to worry about. What is missing from that list though is Siren. It's one thing to face something evil with a BFG. It's another thing to do it with nothing or at best a shovel.

and you get like 8 shots of bfg all around the game ... the shotgun is your only frnd.

morganfell3517d ago

Yes I have and it just isn't a spooky title. There is a difference that at least 2 people do not understand, between being an action game shocks you versus being a spooky/chilling title.

yeah so the best way to explain doom 3 would be ... first 4 levels spooky/ scary... last 16 levels intense action !!!

Doom 3
Silent Hill 2
Dead Space
Resident Evil 5(haaa jokes)

Well, it kinda had that creepy atmosphere/mood and music.

I take it you never met Sander Cohen? =)

I didn't disagree btw.

ShabzS3517d ago

yah bioshock is kinda scary... atmospheiric scary.. not little girl covered in blood running at you with a knife scary .... or clown covered in blood running at you with a knife scary... yeah... clowns and little girls freak me out!!!

TheIneffableBob3517d ago

I thought BioShock was pretty tame. The atmosphere was decent, but not in a scary kind of way. System Shock 2 did a better job with the scares.

Too bad licensing prevented a true sequel to System Shock or even a direct remake. SS2 sits on my 5 best titles ever and was the spiritual grandfather of titles such as Bioshock and Deus Ex.

I am a man who walks alone
And when Im walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park

When the light begins to change
I sometimes feel a little strange
A little anxious when its dark

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that someones always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someones allways there
