Dead Pixels compiles a list of the thirteen most atmospheric horror games of all time, including games you might expect and some you might not.
well not really but they left off STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl therefore by default the list is crappy. Sorry but STALKER not only redefined atmospheric in video games but pushed it to a new level. The first time you encounter a Bloodsucker underground you will know what I'm talking about. Play the game with a quality set of headphones and 1080p and you will feel the eeriness of The Zone.
lol, you're funny.
Oh man, how I dreaded those damn things.
Soon as I saw the title I was thinking 'System Shock 2, System Shock 2' and to my complete disbelief it was the first game in the list, i'm satisfied. :)
the only thing that STALKER pushed was the acceptable amount of bugs on release day
Call of Prypiat is sick. You were right dude.
Damn fatal frame 2 is by far the scariest so is Siren
Shadow-Of-Chernobyl probably should've replaced Shadows-Of-The-Damned.
You're a dick.
why you call this ofensive things in the internet? calm down dude..
I would personally replace Silent Hill 2 with Silent Hill 1. Since it came out before 2 and that game gave me a couple more nightmares than 2 did...
I'm sorry but where is Run Like Hell? (PS2 game) And imo, Dead Space 1 > Dead Space 2
Run Like Hell, is the least scary game I've played in my entire life. I've felt more tension in the Haunted Houses in Mario then I did in that game. The enemies looked kinda cool though. (The main reason I bought it)
I'm glad Fatal Frame 2 is on the list. Too many horror lists forget to include that series. If there's one series that needs to be revived, it's the Fatal Frame series.
where is resi4? one of the best, most acclaimed and most atmospheric games of all time http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I've been watching some people amnesia, and I've probably screamed like a little girl more than once.
I think Limbo should be on that list
Amnesia is definitely a scary game.
So is the Penumbra series.
I need to get me the Bioshock series.
I really want the system shock games.
Is Siren: New Translation on the list? If not, it should be.
I think Clock Tower 3 was pretty scary, for it's time. Especially that part when your running out the house after witnessing the slaughter. She ran so damn slow, Lol. Eternal Darkness was pretty eerie also.

No mention of Metro 2033? Good list save for that omission.
