Which shooter had the best horror elements to it. Please don't list games were horror is averted such as Duke Nukem. If you're so confident and bad ass that you'd take a **** on a demon's face it's not horror (but is, indeed, very bad ass). FEAR for me. It's the only one I have played, but I plan to play all the other classic when I get a gaming rig.

Yeah, same here.

I want to try that, never got to it though.

I love the Stalker game (shadow of chernobyl), beat it on normal, really fun.

And if it counts, Killzone 2 is kind of horror, it's really dark and forboding anyway.

I didn't even know Bioshock was considered to be a horror shooter, picked Fear anyways couldn't bring myself to complete the game it was just too tormenting for me. :P

The original FEAR was an outstanding game. Scary with a lot of it goes bump in the night aspects. Not to mention some absolutely outstanding AI
#8 Posted by sleepingzzz (2260 posts) -

What about Deep Space? Should of been on the poll instead of bioshock.

#9 Posted by topgunmv (10141 posts) -

I'm gonna go with Undying. Just reading the journal entries in the manual was grade A horror novel material.

Where is Condemned?! And Left 4 Dead?! :P

I'd have to go with Fear. STALKER is more bleak, but Fear is downright creepy, and suprisingly unpredictable.

Uh where's Condemned?
#13 Posted by coasterguy65 (5838 posts) -

No Dead Space? Well it gets my vote anyway.

edit

Oh man forgot Doom 3. That would win hands down.

#14 Posted by Zerocrossings (7988 posts) -

I voted STALKER. But im surprised no one chose System Shock.

Dead Space??

I assumed this was fps only.

#20 Posted by Sparky04 (3384 posts) -

Dead Space, the game has awesome weapons, terrifying enemies, and the absolute best sound design in any game ever.

#21 Posted by ksko (507 posts) -

dont know about u guys but condemned with light turned off is crazy freaky scary , still think the 1st one is more scary though I mean the game is DAAARRK :)

#22 Posted by akbar13 (2186 posts) -

Well Condemned isnt really a shooter.

#23 Posted by fiscope (2437 posts) -

I loved the first fear to death, but also highly recommend Condemned.

#24 Posted by arto1223 (4404 posts) -

Wow... I mean the STALKER games are amazing, but not better than System Shock 2. FEAR is also really good (the first one), but not as good as STALKER SoC or CoP and no where close to System Shock 2. I think the results of this poll just go to show how young people on SW are (or just a bunch of console fanboys (but then how would STALKER be in the lead???). But seriously, if you guys have never played either System Shock or System Shock 2 please get them digitally or of of Amazon or Ebay.

#25 Posted by Master_ShakeXXX (13361 posts) -

Dead Space by far.

#26 Posted by glez13 (8574 posts) -

Uh where's Condemned?Sollet

Well that game is hardly a shooter.

I actually prefer hack 'n' slashers and beat'em ups! :D FPSes bore me unless they have lots of fun powers and gimmicks. But in all games and genres I prefer melee combat in general.
#32 Posted by Blade8Aus (1819 posts) -

Doom 3. shame it isnt scary after the first time you play it though unless you first played it on easy and in the daytime and then play it on nightmare and alone in pitch black darkness the second time.

#33 Posted by October_Tide (5396 posts) -

The original FEAR was an amazing game, one of my favourite fps games for PC, the expansions were good as well. The sequal however wasn't that great.

If you like FPS blended with survival horror I definitely recommend cryostasis

#35 Posted by freek666 (22312 posts) -

I'll go with the Stalker series.

If it weren't for F.E.A.R. 2 I'd say F.E.A.R., which absolutely potatoed me... So I'll say STALKER or System Shock. :)

#39 Posted by skrat_01 (33767 posts) -
Cryostasis is a great suggestion. To be honest I would say the horror is the best there is in a shooter to date. And the narrative is absolutely superb.

Aliens Versus Predator 2 and Doom 3
