A look back at some of the scariest games ever made. I find classics are usually more well thought out than the new scary games. The only thing I can really say better about the new releases are better graphics but otherwise, classics have always been able to give me the chills. Below is a list of the 10 scariest game that I’ve played.
10. Silent Hill 2-PlayStation 2, Xbox, PC
Silent Hill 2 is only a loose sequel to the 1999’s critically praised survival horror game. It has a similar town settings from its original. But new Protagonist and cast of characters made me play this game and finish it. This game offers 4 unique ending(cool). And upon playing this game again and again with different level of difficulty of course, you will be able to find hidden objects as well as special weapons such as the chain saw, which severs enemies completely in half. Silent Hill 2 suffers a bit from being too close to its predecessor in terms of gameplay, but it does manage to scare up enough dread to be a worthy game for fans of the genre.
9. Alone in the Dark-PC
This game is one of the oldest Survival Horror game out there just following the 1989 Sweet Home by Capcom.
Players are given the option of choosing between a male or female character (Edward Carnby or Emily Hartwood), and are then trapped inside the haunted mansion of Derceto after dark. From there you are to solve puzzles or hell you can choose to fight slave zombies, giant bipedal rat-like creatures along the way. The story is great, this is the kind of game you want to try to finish until you solve the mystery.
Scariest moment : As soon as the game starts. You got no weapons, bare hands to fight creatures. Yikes!
8. System Shock 2-PC
This game debuted summer 1999, to scare people. Utterly immersive in its use of character attachment and amnesiac story-telling, it is a game that will honestly give you the sweats. This game is very atmospheric from the beginning. The character models is just disgusting making you want to shoot them with what ever weapon you have. The sound also adds up, being very disturbing that is.
Scariest moment : Similar scenes from past movies and novels scares me. Restarting a generator anyone?
7. Condemned “Criminal Origins”-PC
This game is inspired by the movies such as Silence of the Lambs and Se7en. Released by Sega on April 11, 2006 Condemned offers new scary tactics. No zombies and Mansion, only blood squirting heads.
You take the role of Ethan Thomas, a SCU agent (Serial Crime Unit investigator that uses forensic tools) framed for a double cop murder who becomes trapped in the condemned sections of a fictional American city named “Metro City” while hunting a serial killer. Thomas’ investigation is further complicated by a mysterious phenomenon that is transforming the transient population of these areas into insane, violent psychotics. As Thomas, the player investigates crime scenes using forensic tools and techniques, while fighting off the constant assaults by “the influenced” in the hopes of catching the serial killer and escaping alive, and prove that he is innocent to the police.
You have to be fast killing criminals as the bullets are very hard to find ingame.
The game begins in 1923, after World War I veteran Patrick Galloway receives an urgent letter from his friend Jeremiah Covenant. Covenant, well aware of Galloway’s reputation for dealing with occult matters, is in failing health and raves about a curse that has destroyed his entire family. Galloway travels to the Covenant estate on the coast of Ireland to visit his friend, who relates an outlandish tale of supernatural terrors.
The curse then killed all Jeremiah’s family and turned them into monsters in which you have to get through later ingame. From there you get spooky places, cult books and gruesome monsters to deal with. Have i mentioned you also get to use spells ingame? Not only to damage monsters but also use to solve some puzzles to progress.
