Scary games update

after reading comments from the first post I have to mention some things

I've played Dead Space already, For some reason that game didn't scare me much, too much action I guess?

Also I played a bit of the first FEAR game and I honestly got kinda bored with it =x though I want to try that series again.

Many are saying the Penumbra series, well if you'd been watching my streams you'd know thats what i'm currently playing right now =P I beat the first one before I played amnesia, after beating amnesia I went on to Penumbra Black, many scares to be had, check my library for the playthrough, I'll probably play (and stream) more tonight.

Also Alan Wake, yeah beat it, I didn't find that game to be anything close to scary, good game, but not scary.

Doom 3, played that game a billion times, so no scares to be had anymore.


Silent hill.... yeah see... I've played them, and I think that SH1 is the scariest game i've ever played and probably ever will. i've never in my life been so terrified from a game like the first Silent Hill, made me sick it scared me so bad.

Call of Chtululu or whatever its called, I have that on my list already ;o

And of course i've already played all the Resident Evil games

someone said Stalker, i've seen lots of people say Stalker is scary, I played that game for a good 10-15 hours and I never came across anything scary, maybe I just didn't get far enough.

I Made a list a few days ago that I shoulda specified in my first post.

the list of games I have currently that I want to play are:
System shock 2
Condemned
Call of chtlulu or whatever its called
Fatal Frame 2

  2. Nice list. Call of Cthulhu looks scary to me..I've watched a couple of clips recently and it made me buy one of the books from H.P Lovecraft and I absolutely love it =) I guess I'm going to buy the game too. I also bought the Penumbra Collection today. Scary as hell :O And yes, I gotta agree with you. Dead Space wasn't that scary..I don't like too much action in horror games. Fatal Frame looks freaky too. I don't know if you know 4PlayerPodcast, but they have a YouTube account with clips from their live stream including clips from the Fatal Frame series. The guy who played 'em got scared to a point that he just ran out of the room while he was streaming :D

  3. I would reccomend either Yume Nikki, or Yume 2kki. You might want to do some research on them first though, I'm not 100% sure you would like them. They're Japanese indie games, and they are a little bit of a hassle to install, but the payoff is magnificent. Their eerie music and creepy visuals result in a memorable experience.

  4. ECHO NIGHT. I suggested it but couldn't remember the name of it. Scariest freaking game I've ever played, besides the fact I was like 10 years old when I played it. LOL. It's for PS1

  6. I'll still go with Thief: Deadly Shadows, really recommend it. There're levels that will scare you to death (the Cradle for example or ship full of undead crew, check out the music - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Md0FLVpdPnw )and overall atmosphere is very dark and creepy.

  7. Found a couple of websites listing scary video games. Some of them you've mentioned as not finding scary or already played, but I figured I'd post them, because there are some ones unmentioned as well. Do with them what you wish.

  11. All the games that you've listed seem very top notch, however, I'd like to link you to the work of WeCreateStuff, the same guys who did Portal: The Flash Version, the flash map pack (or Portal: Still Alive Xbox DLC) and other quality products.

    They made a spectacular mod for Half-Life 2: Episode 2 known as Nightmare House 2.

    It really it quite amazing, and you should definitely check it out.

    http://nh2.wecreatestuff.com/

    'Nightmare House 2 is a free, horror-themed first-person-shooter game, and the direct successor of the first classic horror map pack "Nightmare House". Nightmare House 2 is based on the Source Engine by Valve, also considered a modification (mod) made for Half Life: Episode 2.

    The story resumes with the player lost and confused in a hospital known as "Never Lose Hope". With no understanding of how you came to be there, there's only a vague memory of the mysterious, haunting girl from Nightmare House. Soon it will be difficult to determine between a dream and reality. How long will it take you to realize that escape is not an option?'

  13. Siren is pretty scary, the list you have is some very good games. Condemned was always the scariest for me because it was the first game I've ever played that made combat scary. Fatal Frame is always a franchise of quality, but 2 is the best one arguably.

    Siren is a pretty scary game, get it if you can find it.

  14. I've seen a few endorsements for Nightmare House 2, and I'd agree with that one. It's an older mod, but still fantastic, and really well-made.

    Another game would be Vampire: The Masquerade-Bloodlines. This one is an old game 2004. It's not entirely centered around horror elements, but a lot of it is pretty freaky/scary. There's a particularly genius segment in a haunted house that is probably the scariest thing I've played so far. Just a thing to check out.

  15. Well- Personally, Dead Space scared the bejesus out of me. Maybe because I'm not used to playing horror/survival-type games? I'm a very cautious player (typical of girl gamers I guess, haha, or maybe it's just me), so the necropmorphs jumping up behind me while I was shooting someone else made me jump out of my flesh haha. Also, all the scenes where you get grabbed around the corner...the need to be constantly alert made my skin crawl and put me completely on edge.

    I guess after a while it gets repetitive. I only hope the new Dead Space games will be more unpredictable.

    On another note, I recently played a little of S.T.A.L.K.E.R (Shadow of Cherynoble). It's KINDA scary. Dunno if it's worth recommending though.

  16. Who the heck said STALKER? The only thing slightly scary about it is the labs and underground areas (also, bloodsuckers). I love the games, but they're not horror games.

    Austin, I suggest the Siren series. I've only played the first one, but that game is just downright terrifying.
