System Shock 2 and Doom 3 come to mind, other than Undying which is pretty freaky.

If there's one thing that the PC is truly lacking recently its some decent horror games. Not much recently comes to mind except maybe Condemned: Criminal Origins. Looking back I'd say System Shock 2 was awesome as well and Undying.

Hmm..lessee off the top of my me head you can try :

System Shock

Nocturne - very good game..kinda old but still cool.

Painkiller - some of the levels are creepy as hell.. cool shootem up

Undying - great game

F.E.A.R. - everybody knows this

Land of the Dead - Ya know, I like this game no matter how bad people say it is. There are tons of mods for this game that really makes it alot better than the original out of the box version.

Resident Evil 4 - Ugh, I will warn you now.. its out in Asia and they totally screwed the PC gamers on this one. They ported it half-assly and there are minimal shaders & lighting effects.. in other words -no atmosphere- whatsover.

Nosferatu : The Wrath Of Malachi - decent prety good atmosphere

Vampire - The Masquerade : Bloodlines - A decent RPG.. buggy as hell tho.

Evil Dead - Regeneration - Come on, ya get to be Ash! Fun action game..

The Suffering and its sequel The Suffering:Ties that bind. Both are good, but I like the first one better.

Blair Witch - it's ok. Theres a trilogy and the first 1 is the better of the lot.

Alone in the Dark - It's old ...can't wait for the new one!

Condemned: Criminal Origins

Stubbs the Zombie - Gah.. was looking forward to it, got it and played for few hours and now its dust. Gimme LOTD!

Some upcoming horror/somewhat horror games to look forward to:

Alan Wake

George Romero's City of  the Dead - For F sakes,  this game needs to be finished!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GAH@&*&#! Been sitting in limbo due to developers belly up issue...

BioShock

STALKER - Shadow of Chernobyl -not really horror per se but...

Hellgate London

Penumbra: Overture

Dead Island - ooooo! Looks cool as hell!

and for all the UNDYING fans... Clive Barkers JERICHO.


This is the genre of gaming that I mostly enjoy.. so its starting to look good for the future..

Sanitarium has some pretty freaky, disturbing moments!  And oh god, System Shock 2 is just nuts, the disembodied voice of the ship can REALLY get to you, tough to explain, I have one friend in particular that simply would not play that game because it got to him so much.

Condemned is much like F.E.A.R., including the prefabs and textures too. One of the weakness of Monolith games is their insistent need to reuse the same stuff in their games. Still have The Thing in it's box and never installed it yet. But that's suppose to be another horror related game. BTW, horror is also to the beholder. Some think blood and gore equals it; some think psychological terror more horrifying. So choose a sub-genre based on what scares the crap out of *you* not Joe Schmoo (and remember to play it at night and in a dark room for added creepiness!).

Yeah, thats what I hear. Too bad I've deleted the game so long ago.  Maybe one day I'll get around to giving it another try.

I think doom 3 and fear would be a good game for your xbox. I hope there's resident evil in pc so I can suggest it too. That game was really good and scary to death.

Playing Aliens Vs. Predetors 1 and 2 as a marine will have you jumping out of your seat and screaming for mommy.

The first was much scarier since you couldn't save..

Definitely Undying. Great game, almost feels like you're in a Clive Barker movie.

The first Shivers game, just for the atmosphere of it.

The Thing

American McGee's Alice, which can sometimes be found in a compilation that includes Undying as well as 2-3 other games.

Both of the Phantasmagoria games

Both Dark Fall games

Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare

Ripper

Zork Nemesis

Ghost Master, not a scary game, but very entertaining. Sort of like The sims, but with ghosts.

Sanitarium

Be sure to be on the look out of this one.

By the way, the graphics are amazing, it kinda looks like the Crytek engine.

There have been many good games mentioned.  I'll like to mention:

Thief: The Dark Project.

Some of the levels are very creepy and spooky.  It may not technically be a horror game, but it has some pretty creepy moments.

I was beginning to wonder if anyone would remember to put this game up there. I would highly recommend Call of Cthulu and Condemned. Both are a year or two old and hold up very well.

I agree with Thief series. Especially the "cradle" level in thief:deadly shadows was the most "horrorful" level I've ever played.

This is a very weird thing, I know. I enjoy horror games and one of the freakiest is a mod for Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind. There was a User Created Horror mod that was just so freaky and messed with your mind. It added plenty of puzzles, freaky monsters, unnatural darkness, NPCs and atmosphere to it's best. I don't say go out and find a Morrowind game (Still a VERY good game IMO), but if you have it laying around, search for the Horror mod.

Failing to look at dates doesn't make sence.This thread must have been on page 40 or something.You should have just started a new thread instead of looking though all the old ones and bumping them up.

Oh and welcome to gamespot :P

Thanks. I was searching for Horror PC Games on a Google browser and this specific topic came up on page 2 of that search. So it makes sense for me.
