I thought Slender was quite scary the first time, but after that was a breeze. It starts to get a bit predictable. I've gone games without seeing him until the moment he killed me... just didn't turn around.

 

SCP definitely doesn't set an atmosphere nearly as good. But opposite of Slender, it actually gets scarier when you "know" what to expect, except you never know when to expect it...

Also they have another game along with containment breach where you walk down an endless flight of stairs and strange things start happening and get worse and worse. Short and sort of boring after a few plays but it's a great exercise in tension building and atmosphere

 

I played the stair one. I think they could have made it much scarier. Then again, it's not really a game.

I think the creature is creepy in it's own way. But anything that uses the "weeping angels" concept is bound to freak me out more than any universal so-called "horror game" (Dead Space, Condemned, etc).

Yo,

 

Speaking of Dead Space, DS3 looks like crap to me. I loved 1&2 but 3 has co-op, universal ammo pick-ups, and even more action. It's going the RE5 route!

Glad somebody mentioned this. DS3 does indeed look like utter crap. I won't be buying it until it hits the bargain bin a month later...

 

Loved the atmosphere of the first and the fact Issac didn't talk. The second seemed to push action sequences to hard. Loved the reworked controls though.

The "school" section of DS2 was one of the freakiest portions in any new horror game hands down. Dat bell, Dat screaming.

I thought it was clever, but not scary. They could have made it SO much scarier. Too bad nothing really stood out to me in that game. I noticed they had a lot more jump scares, as opposed to DS1 which didn't need them.

Dead Space 3 is officially doomed.

 

"Despite being braised for reinventing the survival horror genre, Dead Space and Dead Space 2 sold less than 3 million units combined. EA investigated the reasons behind promising series’ underperformance and came with an interesting conclusion: The game is too scary. With that in mind, EA’s wonderful top brass decided that the best way to make the game more “mass appealing” is to make introduce coop-play to Dead Space 3."

 

Um, I'm officially at a lose for words...

Wow, the world is made of babys. IT'S NOT EVEN THAT SCARY Resident Evil 4 was much scarier and that game isn't too scary.

Yo,

 DS3 will suck. It's going the COD route and is adding in too much action. DS1&2 were too scary? I call bollocks on that. Neither were "too" scary but they had excellent atmosphere. Now DS3 is dumbing it down too much.

I've been following slenderman content since near the time Marble Hornets started, Now someone pops up with a free small game related to him. It would be really awesome if this inspires something bigger.

Yo,

 

Slenderman's Shadow has a more creepy environment, but Slender has much better pacing and atmosphere. Otherwise they are the same games.

Even better: Slender tv series. I'm thinking sort of a Fringe style series with a scarier, more helpless bent.
