L4D in a top 10 scariest list? Jesus... Where's Fatal Frame?
DeadSpace is a good game, but no more scary than Doom 3. No Fatal Frame aka Project Zero?
Dead space did great. Idk if he was aiming for the first 1-3 or what but resident evil is no where near scary(anymore). L4D really makes me question your decision making. Alan Wake i was kinda surprised but ill give it to you. kinda surprised Slender is on here. I watched a top 10 horror and that was on it, so i watched some videos and people were freaking out so i was interested. Personally, the atmosphere was great but slender man in general...is broken. I found its weak points and took advantage. And once you have advantage over something in game it isnt scary. Have to give the creator credit tho. did it by himself, scared many people AND started a new generation in Horror gaming. Thank you There are only two games in my life i can say it terrified me. and I love it. Silent Hill 1...Had to turn off the music. Bro and I took turns playing different parts lol Resident evil 2...Asked my brother before bed if zombies were real. Yes I was 7-8 years old but most "horror" games dont do that anymore, because its all about the action
Left 4 Dead should not really be on that list. I mean, it can get frantic when you're getting swarmed, but it is a full on action title and doesn't really have the atmosphere needed to be a true horror. Resident Evil I would have on the list, but probably only at number 10 because again, it isn't really all that scary. There's tension galore at times, and the dogs crashing through the windows got me just like it got everyone else, but it really is more of a B movie vibe...especially as the series goes on. Great games, but the horror is pretty mild in truth. Fatal Frame/Project Zero absolutely deserves a place on the list, that is a game that nails the creepy atmosphere and subtle scares that really send a chill up your spine. Very nice to see Condemned on the list, a truly underrated horror game. Great atmosphere, combat is visceral and scary and it's a very well paced game. If Amnesia is on the list, I'd also include Penumbra from the same developers. It's very similar to Amnesia, but no less nerve-jangling.
Silent Hill should be higher on the list then RE. Furthermore RE should only be on the list if it RE1-CVx, anything after that became an action game and lost all survival horror aspects. Also Silent Hill should only be on there if it SH 1-4, since they where the best SH games.
Dead space, what a game
