Gonna be picking up a PS3 in about two weeks, and I need some recommendations for Horror games. My wife and I like to play those together, like Resident Evil and such...so we're looking for some to play through together. Not necessarily multiplayer, just something we can enjoy together.

Condemned 2 does horror quite well. The first one does too, but I don't know if it's available on the PS3.

altho not exclusive to ps3, I like me some dead space. Condemned 2 is also a good choice

Dead Space is quite good. Check out Forbidden Siren too. It's more of a 'hide and sneak' horror.

Siren Blood Curse, Condemned 1, Dead Space. I would avoid Silent Hill Homecoming personally.

Dead Space. Resident Evil 5 An under the radar choice might be Saw. It didn't get great reviews, and you can tell it was a bit low budget. But if you can get it cheap it should keep you entertained for one good solid playthrough (I.e. try to get it for like $15 or less). One caveat, you better like puzzles to enjoy this game.

Resident Evil 5 2Chalupas
If you're looking for horror, this probably won't fit the bill. RE has gone action over horror

Agreed, though it's still fun to play, especially co-op with a friend. It does provide a lot of background information about the RE universe (which I should read one day).

Dead Space, while not exclusive to the PS3, is IMO the best horror game of this generation.

Condemned 2 Dead Space Grab those and you won't regret it! Not only good for a scare, but overall good games as well.

The closet thing to a horror this gen is Siren Blood Curse. Dead Space will make you jump once or mayb twice but it isnt scary. And Resident Evil 5 is an action game now but has offline/online co-op

Deadspace, that or RE5 for the co-op.

The F.E.A.R games, Condemned 2 and Deadspace. I still want a really good horror to come out on this generation.

Siren is the scariest game this gen. Then Condemned 2, then Dead Space.

I'm going to recommend this to you but not the OP because I know he requested PS3 only, but there was a terrifically horrifying game that came out a couple years ago and many consider it one of the scariest video games made to date, it's just for PC. Alas, the game is called Amnesia: The Dark Descent. So if anyone here plays PC games too and you love horror, CHECK IT OUT!

Wait for Silent Hill Downpour, it's a 3d horror game, can't wait to see what it will be like in 3d.

Put "The Darkness II" on your wishlist. It's coming out next year on February 7th and is going to be amazing.

The only horror game I've played that I found creepy and pretty scary was Dead Space, not so much Dead Space 2.

"Condemned II: Bloodshot" with a set of headphones is a GREAT game, in fact, play ANY horror game with 'phones on... "Dead Space" surprised me with it's quality of scares (I'm not easily rattled), "Siren: Blood Curse" is remarkable and much inmproved from the PS2 title, I'm also a fan of "Alone in the Dark: Inferno".

Dead Space 2 gives you some scares and it's a brilliant game.

I love horror style games. I'd say trying the following : resident evil 4, resistance 2-3 (fps) killzone 2-3 (fps) these fps have some good gore in them . and good game campaine as well. also try fear !!!

#37 Posted by yayio (221 posts) -

fear 3, wasnt very scary, but it had its moments and it's one of the best split screens games I've played.

Silent Hill 2 and 3 are some of the scariest games ever! So the fact that they are now available together in an HD restoration collection is amazing!! I would def recommend those, but hear that SH:Homecoming isn't as good, but I'm sure it's still got its scary moments.

Resident Evil 5 isn't really that scary per se, but is a great action game with horror ELEMENTS, even though I would just label it as a very gory action game.

Dead Space and Dead Space 2 are also great choices. While I wasn't as scared playing Dead Space as I was playing the Resident Evil remake for the Gamecube, I still had a good time.

Dead Space is one of the games I've played that actually scared me to a point. Dark atmosphere, things at random moments, the use of sounds, it is honestly one game that would fit the bill.

Siren Blood Curse is a really good horror game, if you live in the US it's probably a good idea to import it from the UK because here in the US it's censored and only available as a download. I don't know about you but I perfer my games to be uncensored and on disc. ;) You can also import it from Hong Kong under the title Siren New Translation where it's available in English, that's where my copy came from.

Also the Yakuza games are coming out with a new game in March called Yakuza: Dead Souls which is about zombies. It's part of that new fad where companies take games that aren't normally about zombies and put zombies in them. It actually looks kind of scary to me, so you might like it.

Edit: Also the best thing about PS3 games is that they aren't region protected you so can import them from other countries and play them on your PS3.

True with another year of big names titles being released and the way the last few Silent Hill games have been received I kinda understand why people aren't that enthusiastic about this new game but its looking great, real creepy atmosphere in quite a big area. The gameplay vids that I've seen have me hooked and I'm not even a big Silent Hill fan, I've only ever played the first one so am really REALLY looking forward to the HD collection where I can play 2 and 3 both regarded as classics in their own right.

Good advice, GreySun. I've heard this before... What has been removed, do you or anyone else know? The download chapters are really great gaming, but I always like to know the options/ reasons as to why this sort of thing happens in a country that commits horrible attrocities domestically & internationally on an almost daily basis...

Thanks!

I'm not a massive SH fan either, but I want to play both of 'em.
