The Top 10 Horror Games of All Time (so far...) '09

DualShockers writes,

"October is almost upon us. Soon, all the ghouls and goblins of the world may potentially rise up for one night and… do whatever they do best. However – in this Pre-Halloween spirit I've decided to write my VERY FIRST editorial on something completely relevant. It's no lie, the genre of horror has to be my favourite above all others, and that is why I shall now be counting down, in my humble opinion, the top 10 scariest games of all time. From 10 - 5:"

1) Alone in The Dark 4: The New Nightmare
2) Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
3) Dino Crisis 2
4) Silent Hill

^ those 4 games beat them all. (Not in any particular order)

new nightmare is the best AITD game. It hasn't aged well, but i had it back when it first came out.

I'd hate to see Dead Space not make the list.

Thief 3 was scary, and while I really reaaaaaaally loved Dino Crisis 2, I saw it more as an action game than a horror one, same goes for RE3, the first RE was the scariest RE.

Also, have you played any "Siren" game?

Tomarcus5114d ago

I never really got into horror games, they always lacked something...

Tomarcus5114d ago

It's all in good fun. Plus they lack the technology to recreate the scariness of my face.

I enjoy Horror games, personally. And I would have to agree with the author on this one. Although Bioshock wasn't labeled as scary, the beginning of the game does make you jump a couple of times.

ReservoirDog3165114d ago

Yeah, I'm just barely trying to get into horror games. Just bought Silent Hill 1 on PSN.

And Bioshock just stopped being scary once you figure out you can't really die. Though the part in the dentist area early on got me. He just appears right behind you. Oh that part got me so bad.

kaveti66165114d ago

Aha, that scene is so memorable for me. My heart actually skipped a beat when I turned around. That dentist dude was just staring at me. I'm surprised that it's a successful scripted sequence because in all honesty there is no reason for the player to just stand there with his back facing the dentist. The only reason is there's an audiotape on the table, and I guess the developers thought that once the player gets the audiotape, they will just stand there and listen to it, providing for the dentist to appear behind the player and surprise him. I'm impressed that it seems to have worked.

Lavalamp5114d ago

Dead Space isn't on the list and Bioshock is? I'm not condemning Bioshock in any shape or form but rather, I just find it weird how a game can beat another in a genre it was never in.

hatchimatchi5114d ago

his list was 10-5, it'll probably be on the 5-1 list.

if not, he either has nerves of steel or he's never played it.

10 Movies That Could Be Really Great Video Games

Great stories come in all shapes and forms; while some people would rather watch movies, some others prefer the interactivity that only video games have to offer. For some reason, the practice of turning popular movies into console games has fallen out of fashion in recent years – and that’s terrible news for both film aficionados and gamers alike.

They already made a couple of " The Mummy " games, and honestly, they all sucked big time. The Last one I've played was the game iteration of Tom of the Dragon Emperor, and that was disappointing.

Dredd has been made into ... I think 4 games? the last one I played was Judge Dredd vs Death. It was based on the comics, and it ended in a cliffhanger. If only a sequel were to be made...

Edit: Still a great topic, though!

I think the closest you can have to Kill Bill is No More Heroes 1. The vibes, the coolness, the gore and everything just screams Kill Bill! Kill Bill! Kill BIll!!!! haha
