I didn't like it at first..but it turned out to be really....really good game. Still haven't finished it, but the tension in that game is unreal.

Stalker but it took a lot of mods and a ton of time before it was worth a damn. Fear and Skyrim both had good atmosphere too.

Bioshock was incredible for me. Otherwise the atmosphere in places for Xenoblade Chronicles were awesome.

Yeah, I hated the game in the beginning. Just seemed like a shitty low budget FPS with a terrible presentatio, voice acting, etc. But then you start exploring, getting anomalies n shit... Man it was intense. So intense that I don't think I'll ever touch it again lol.

Skyrim, I love wandering around the wilderness with that beautiful music in background

South Park Stick Of Truth - if it counts ? I like its atmosphere because it IS south park, and everything about the game looked and felt was south park, no game had done that until this.

Silent Hill 1-4 easily the best hands down. Too bad the HD collection was such a disastrous mess because after playing PCSX2 for a few weeks all I can say is that the experience is not very consistent. So you either hunt down a PS2 and force yourself to play through that blurry mess in 4:3 or don't play anything at all.

Why Silent Hill 2 is still the most disturbing game ever made

siren, the only thing that ruined that game is that it was episodic.

BioShock. Never before seen setting with creepy lighting, architecture, layouts... It also made old record music scary to hear.

Yeah really. That game kills all others in terms of atmosphere. The depressing, terrifying air in that game cannot be matched.

If the P.T demo is a good sign of what's to come in the Silent Hills then that game could take the spot from SH2.

A Link to the Past.

...a lot of Nintendo games.

lol at "realistic" environments creating the best atmostphere. I know there's not a real answer, but there's nothing there to those games to separate them from anything.

...Mario 64.

I would go for something like Deadspace 1/2 or the Souls games. Hell, Bloodborne looks like its gonna have some of the best atmosphere ever.

Red Dead Redemption

It's one of the few games I would consider as an art.

Also TC, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a highly overrated game and less immersing than Fallout 3.

Skyrim was neat too but music in MM is always superior

And Bastion had a pretty original mood

I'm sure there are a few games that I've played that would qualify for this title but off the top of my head I can think of the original "Dead Space". I remember turning up my surround sound to start playing it, the opening intro before the "press start" menu literally made me disoriented with how loud and skretchy it was between the segments. The use of sound throughout the game was done very well also and the visuals were impressive for it's time. Also the game was fun with made the atmosphere that much more engaging.

That's right, The Bad boy that started it all. CE had the best atmosphere game I play in my life when Xbox was still new to the gaming world and it still holds well to this day.

Can't wait to relive this Legendary atmosphere game on Xbox One this November.

There's a good chance I was going to say this.

Stepping out of the crashed escape pod at the beginning of level 2, after the tighter fighting on board the Pillar in level 1, was such an amazing feeling with all that space to explore.

I guess you haven´t played many games at all. This explains why you say Last of Us or PT demo.

Though it doesn't hold up today, Resident Evil around its launch would be my pick.

I see Demons Souls and SotC mentioned several times, and both are strong choices.
