With the much anticipated release of Alan Wake I felt it was time to put out a list of the horror games that any gamer worth their salt should play. Some of these games are hard to find, some are old, and some everyone ought to have already played. These are the thirteen games that define the horror genre and even to this day provide hours of entertainment that others try to match, but never quite meet. Though there are some obscure titles I skipped some such as Sweet Home a famicom game that featured a group of people exploring a mansion as traps and monsters kill them in gruesome ways, a real gem if you can find a rom of it. Still I felt that this list should be made up of both games people know and games they may not know. Without further ado, this is the list of 13 horror games you need to play.
