For me its

1. Fear

2. Manhunt

3. Dead Space

4. Silent Hill

Amnesia, The Penumbra Games and Call of Cthulu: Dark Corners of the earth. Nothing else comes close really. The Stalker games at night can be quite terrifying at times as well. 

Fear was creepy and Dead Space was tense, but both are primarily action games in my eyes.

The Penumbra Games were good but they didn't scare me. Tension was there though. On the other hand, Amnesia was closest to doing it.

Haven't played Amnesia so i'll say Dead Space for the time being.

EDIT: just finished playing a bit of Alan Wake tonight and let me say it's so intense and i recommend it to anyone who hasn't played it yet, amazing deep story line too. I'd say this is up there for being scary.

Silent Hill 2.

Come on, guys. FEAR? Dead Space? I'd understand if you've only played My Little Pony games in the past.

Dead Space made me jump a lot! Silent Hill was creepy though and great.

Amnesia first and foremost. Then the Penumbra games. System shock 2 can be pretty creepy as well as STALKER at night time or underground

For me, FEAR always holds a special place in my scary-heart. First real game I played that had any horror elements in it.

Never been truly scared by a game, but Silent Hill 1/2, Call of Cthulhu and Harvester were pretty creepy

Barbie's Little Pony. Watching my litte niece play that on her computer scared the living crap out of me! Haven't been the same since.

Resident Evil 1 remastered for Gamecube

 

unquestionably. Game scared be when i was 14, and it still sends chills down my Spine, even thinking about it 10 years later. The Silent Hill games were pretty terrifying, but i don't have much playthrough time/experience to give feedback on. Dead Space 1 is a great contentender for me as well since that's all i can remember/comment for now.

 

People were always bragging about how Amnesia The Dark Descent was the G.O.A.T, but i beg to differ.  The controls were very stiff on that game, you got carried away too much, felt like a drag to continue, there was tension and atmosphere, but i just never felt the urge to play anymore after 2 hours.

F.E.A.R. and some parts of Half-Life 2

Nightmare house 2 the HL2 mod was pretty good.

Nothing. I avoid scary games like the plague.

So many people mentioning Amnesia. I never played that game, but it sounds interesting.

The most immersive scary moment I recall was in Thief III - the cradle mission.

I watched a video of Amnesia where the player was being chased through water-filled rooms by something invisible and very loud. It was extremely unnerving just to watch the video, so I imagine actually playing it would be terrifying.

Amnesia for sure.  

#30 Posted by SteverXIII (3829 posts) -
Anyone else think Amnesia is overrated? I didn't find that game to be slightly scary.

Slender...
Some people think it's tupid, but it's freaking intense, especially at night in the dark all alone...

It's a completely free game, so here's the link:
