Hi,

This thread is dedicated to all horror games. Ones which either satisfy your darkest fantasies or chill your bones.

My personal favourites are Dead Space, Dead Space 2, Doom, etc. Though these are more action oriented than actual survival-horror (american sensibility of horror), the one I found to be genuinely scary is Amnesia:The Dark Descent.

There are some mods which are more spookier. Cry of Fear, Afraid of Monsters, SCP containment breach mods. Watch some vids to get the idea.

Hmm for me
1. RE Series
2. DS Series
3. FEAR Series
Although FEAR & RE Series has lost the glory as horror games.

Re: Quest for Scares - Horror Games Discussion

I've not played any of the RE series (except RE4, briefly) so not judgement here.

I've loved the ambiance of the DS series, though it has a lot of action for a horror game. Not to mention the huge arsenal.

FEAR is an action game more than horror.

I've not found any game, so far, creepier than Amnesia:The Dark Descent. Perfect survival horror. No weapons, only evasive tactics against enemies. Good puzzles and great storyline.

Is there any of the Silent Hill series for the PC? Would like to give it a try.

Yeah, Silent Hill 1 to 4, after that homecoming.

Those mods are probably on source engine or unreal engines. Here is a video;

^^the thing moves if you blink and don't make straight eye contact. Others game's gameplay is worth checking out too.

Another mod is Hidden:Source. Good multiplayer.

Hmmm...this one is pretty good:



I can't believe this one is a HL1.

Condemned: Criminal Origins. 'Nuff said.

If you ever get a PS3, we have Siren: Blood Curse. The game's start menu music will haunt you for the whole night.

I have no consoles, so cannot really experience the console games.

Didn't play FEAR 1 much, but player FEAR 2 and FEAR 3. Though its mainly action oriented, I found some parts pretty spooky. Such as the school mission in FEAR 2 where you get attacked by ghosts left right and center and the underground facility in FEAR 3, where you are constantly attacked by some nearly-invisible creature (Harlan Wade's avatar of some sort).

Looks like this was supposed to be released in Fall 2011, doesn't seem to be out. Concept looks good.

Lexis Numérique has released today a new trailer for AMY, a survival horror/action adventure game where players must protect, and escort the eponymous Amy - an enigmatic eight-year-old autistic girl with curious powers - as they try to get her out of a city overrun with wild creatures and dangerous enemies. Currently in development at VectorCell Studios, AMY takes place in December 2034 in Silver City (Midwest, USA) after a comet strikes, wreaking havoc on humanity and unleashing a deadly virus that has infected almost everyone. Players take on the role of Lana, who regains consciousness in the midst of all the mayhem. Lana feels the virus beginning to infect her and knows she must run as far as possible to escape the nightmare. The presence of the titular Amy, a seemingly defenseless eight-year-old autistic girl who has curious powers, forces her to make choices that will affect both their lives. AMY will be available in Fall 2011.

LOL! AMY has already released on the consoles and has got piss-poor rating. Don't even bother looking at it.

Whoops! No wonder I couldn't even find any reference about it elsewhere.

So far, the most scary game I've played is Amnesia:The Dark Descent. It is the manifestation of the perfect survival horror. No HUD, no weapons, Evasive tactics only, copious amounts of darkness, copious amount of gore, and a perpetual sense of creepiness and fear.

true. Saw gameplay on youtube and it pretty much sucks.

Limbo is also one of the scariest games other than RE, FEAR, Amnesia, SIlent Hill Series and did I forget Doom 3!

Nothing scary about Limbo, IMHO. The setting is a little dark does not mean its horror, even Diablo has a dark setting.

I loved Doom3 moving closer to survival horror than the shoot em up prequels.
