The FEAR games aren't really scary, but I enjoy them.

I played the Amnesia Demo with my cousin and i don't get how people can play these games! NTM it was pretty hard....redface.gif

The Tunnel, i donated and received a frame of the movie, but don't know what to do with it. Need to go back and get a close up of that monster....The Descent - probably my favorite horror movie, film buffs will laugh because it's not that old?

I also tried to get Amnesia, but it seems my computer doesn't want to make it work, sadly.

 

I will admit though, the scariest game moment I've ever had was from Mirror's Edge. No joke.

If you like condemned criminal origins you will like fear my friend, I have got every fear game that was released,i bought them after i played condemned and wanted more of the same and checked out monolith/day1 studios website and found fear and haven't looked back since!

Among the Sleep is a first person horror adventure, in which you play a two year old child. After being put to bed at night, mystical things will happen.

I really enjoyed Alan Wake.  Lots of flavor from Twin Peaks and Stephen King - really great at creating atmosphere and keeping you in the moment.  Be sure to play the DLC parts too - the main game itself ends in a fairly unsatisfying fashion, but the two short DLC packs button it up more nicely.  AW also has a fantastic soundtrack - listen to it at work all the time.

 

Amnesia is included in the current Humble Indie Bundle for those that have been on the fence.  I've definitely been tempted to play that one, but I'm a bit of a scaredy cat, so unsure.  I was effed up for months after watching The Ring!  beyersmile.png

 

I've also been thinking about going back and playing through F.E.A.R.  I know it's not pure horror, but it was definitely creepy in places and had some good jump scares.  I'd only played about a third of the way through it.

 

Did anyone mention the old Aliens vs Predator PC games (1 & 2)?  Those definitely had some good scary parts to them.

Wait - what was the scary part in Mirror's Edge?

What´s the best horror game for Xbox 360 right now???

Was looking into it a while ago and ended up with Alan Wake. While I loved the atmosphere and the graphics at times, all in all it was not very scary at all since the whole game repeated itself over and over and over again. Still worth a try though.

I agree it's a good game but not a patch on the first silent hill or resident evil archives!

I can't for the life of me take horror games seriously on the wii.

Game itself wise: Penumbra is a very awesome game, and the ending always makes me shiver.

 

As for "House of Dead," I haven't tried it but it does not look too scary to me. Reminds me of Zombieland. More of a comedy than horror

Will the penumbra collection work on a windows7 pc? p.s house of the dead overkill is a good game and i am glad i bought it now, the swearings gone a bit overboard though!
