Resident Evil 4 not included. This list disappointed me o_0

RE4 was more of a shooter than a survival horror. RE 2+3 were better if you want a survival horror RE.

Remove Dead Space and FEAR because they were shooters. I would add Alan Wake and Dear Esther.

Yeh I know Dear Esther is not survival Horror (more of a ghost story) but it's so dam spooky and creepy that it should be on this list. I can only play it for like 10 minutes at a time before I get the heeby geebies and turn it off.

WOW i enjoyed Amnesia The Dark Descent. Now that's survival horror cause you get NO WEAPONS!

glad to see SH4 there, nice list overall.
i would add the first Dino Crisis game and Demon's Souls and yess they were scary at least for me :)
God, I REALLY hope SH: downpour turns out good!

Horror is probably my least favorite genre, though there are some great series like Resident Evil.

OMG i stop reading at: "#21 - Silent hill " reaaally ?

Peaceful_Jelly2455d ago

what's wrong with Silent Hill? I thought it was a really scary game for its time...

playnation2455d ago (Edited 2455d ago )

theres nothing wrong with Silenthill i love that game, whats wrong is the position.

JellyJelly2455d ago

Even more wrong is that Silent Hill 4:The Room is even on the list. Good to see Call of Cthulu on #6 but other than that the list is pretty wack.

Stopped reading at SH4. They haven't a clue what a horror game is. That and I bet SH2 is no. 1.

What a load of crap.

EDIT: @playnation: Yeah, I had a feeling the list was going to be shit when I saw that. Then I saw SH4 at no. 12.

Jesus Christ. The author must be a tween or something.

I don't know...even though SH4 was a letdown for the series, it did have some of the scariest and most disturbing imagery and atmosphere in the series. Stuff like the giant head, the deformed siamese-twin babies, the whole plot with the umbilical cord as the 'key' for Walter. It was all pretty...creepy.

zinkabass2455d ago (Edited 2455d ago )

Siren games, Clock tower, Fatal frame games,..even Call of Cthulhu and Penumbras are there,..

I kinda like the list, I think it is pretty good,.. Would put most games in very different order myself though,..

@techrave,.. I know bro.

Ordering lists is a very subjective matter!
