I'm in the mood for something scary. And by scary, I don't just mean mile-a-minute thrills, or gore. I want really genuinely eerie, spooky, chilling content. I want to not want the lights off. I want to feel icy fingers down my spine.

Mostly, the video game industry has been woefully short on delivering that kind of game.

Roaring monsters trying to eat me? Not scary.

Moaning zombies trying to devour or infect me? Not scary.

Ghostly little girls moving in an unnatural herky-jerky motion (ala The Ring)? Kinda scary.

So far, the closest I've been able to find to something genuinely chilling is the haunted house chapter in Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. But that was too short. I want a whole game like that, a good story-driven chillfest. Any suggestions?

Clive Barker's Undying. It's a few years old but loaded with atmosphere, a great plot, and tons of spooky moments. It will make your skin crawl. I guarantee it.

How about Silent Hill, Fatal Frame (I couldn't finish the 2nd one), Siren or System Shock?

Either PC, or XBox 360. I'll probably eventually get around to picking up a PS2 or PS3, but right now, the PC and the 360 are all I've got to work with.

Dude, Undying is a masterpiece of gaming horror. I literally could not play it with the lights off.

7. Clive Barker's Undying (EA, PC)

Master storyteller Clive Barker made his debut in the game world with this underrated first-person shooter. Players played Patrick Galloway, a young man who comes to a wartime companion's haunted Irish mansion to help him deal with sinister family plot.

Unfortunately, as soon as you arrive, bad things start happening, like an attack by demonic hounds and the spirits of dead family members. Galloway, of course, will have use a combination of gunplay and ancient Druid powers to get to the bottom of this plot and stop a hideous evil from being unleashed on the world.

<!--- end image div -->
The scariness of Undying came from three things. First, the graphics were terrific, not so much for how advanced they were (they weren't), but for the art direction that went into them. The game made brilliant use of light and color and had spectacular skies in the outdoor scenes that really gave the sense of being trapped on some godforsaken Irish heath.

Second was the sound, especially the moaning of some of the monsters and the way the Hellhound baying and yipping would get louder as they got closer. Finally, there was the comparative lack of ammunition. The player was chronically low on ammo, meaning that every shot had to count and every enemy, no matter how small, became a source of fear not only for the immediate danger that it posed, but also by virtue of the fact that it might cause you to waste bullets you'd need later.

Underwear Destroying Moment: Traveling down a long, narrow corridor of open windows with curtains that keep blowing in your face, blocking your view (and your aim!) of the shadow-things that kept rising from the floor.

PC: System Shock (I can't describe how amazing this game is), Aliens vs Predator, F.E.A.R.,

360: Not a lot of horror type games out for it - Lots of original xbox titles that are backwards compatible though. Silent Hill 2, Fatal Frame, The Suffering.... Hold off til June 24th when Alone in the Dark comes to the 360 :)

And my point was exactly the opposite. It's not as scary as undying. It's really just a good first person shooter with aliens and predators. It's more like Aliens (awesome action) than Alien (pure horror).

And you know I'm not a console gamer. :D

Anyway I hope he plays Undying. I want to hear what he thinks. It scared the crap out of me and I was 19.

Phantasmagoria was great. I can't imagine it has aged real well. As has been said, the Silent Hill games are great. You have to deal with a bit of the mundane zombie shooting, but there also some amazingly eerie segments. Plus, they all give you a pretty good head f--k. I am also looking forward to the new Alone in the Dark. Looks promising.

There isn't a zombie in the entire Silent Hill series.
A good bit of nurses (slightly zombie-like) though :)

If you're a fan of HP Lovecraft type stuff, you might try out Eternal Darkness.. its for the gamecube.. but still. Good game. I don't really know how it compares to other horror games though, as it and Resident Evil are the only ones I've played.

Eternal Darkness was very good. I wouldnt call it frightening but its loaded with creepy and eerie events. At random times the game messes with you. My friend played through it 3 times, he says each time he played through it there were different mind****s that he hadnt seen previously.

Bioshock is a fun FPS, for sure. I've played through it once. I wouldn't consider it a horror game, as much as a sci-fi game with some horror elements (like the Resident Evil and Doom series). The Little Sisters definitely have a creepy feel to them, though.

If you check out silent hill, get Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams (you're only option anyways while playing on xbox - aside from the shit that is silent hill 4).
Silent Hill 2 has the best plot of any video game I've played... ever.
Within the first 4 minutes, you're reading a note from your dead wife and heading into the creepy town, Silent Hill.
This game will scare the ****ing shit out of you. You're warned.

While it doesn't fit the exact criteria you're looking for, I heartily recommend Condemned.

It delivers more traditional scares with the use of fantastic sound design, unique locals and aggressive enemy AI. One of the highlights from my playthrough came during a section where I was tracking someone that was moving from apartment to apartment. At one point during the chase, I entered a sloped garage area and bumped into a table, which knocked off a soda can. I heard it hit the ground and roll for five to ten seconds, and then abruptly stop. Only after I turned around and caught a wooden plank to my face did I realize the can was stopped by the enemy that had snuck behind me.

FATAL FRAME. i damn near pissed myself with that game. You have to play it with great audio though. The footsteps are creepy as hell, and the sounds that come from behind some of the doors, or the voice recordings that you play back.....ah hell the entire game is creepy. It's one of those games were you have to walk slowly, other wise something will scare the shit out of you. I remember running around trying to find where i needed to go...I found it, because some black spirit thing whipped its head around the corner and scared the crap out of me.

One time i was playing it with my roommate and we had the audio going through a shelf unit stereo. i was moving slowly, waiting for something to happen. All of a sudden, the stereo switched from AUX to the FM stereo and maxed out the volume. It scared the crap out of both of us and i havent touched that game since.

I forgot all about F.E.A.R. That's a good game too. Especially when the lights go out in the building and that damn little girl pops out of nowhere. But, you feel better in F.E.A.R because you can shoot everything but the little girl. The end is awesome.

I had that same issue, which was why i tried to play when some one was around. As far as Silent Hill goes...I played 1, some of 2 and a good portion of 3. It never got me like Fatal Frame did, but it is still top 2 or 3. I cant remember which one i was playing, but the scene were you walk into the school and there are all of those little children running between the desks scared the hell out of me. I hated the school.

The prison was the worst.. Hospital is a close second.

I haven't yet. With the weather finally evening out a bit, my work schedule has picked back up considerably. But when I've been at the video store, I've kept my eye out for Silent Hill 2, which I'll probably end up getting online if I can't find it on the shelf. I'll probably try out Condemned 2, also. Maybe some of the others later.

I played the Resident Evil Series through PS2 and Game Cube, enjoyed them a ton. I regret i have never played Silent Hill at all.

Silent Hill 1 and 2, are those for ps1 or 2? I know the movie was pretty ****ed up

It does work with the xbox 360 BC - but there are bugs.
The flashlight shines in all four directions when ur in the apartments (no matter which direction your character is facing).. And the big bug is you can only have 1 save file. If you happen to accidentally save more than one game file - the game will not load. Essentially, you have to overwrite your current save file every time you wish to save (which will be often). This is not a big deal to me, as I don't see it necessary to have more than one save file for this game...

You don't "need" to. Two different stories, same town.





I would play SH1 at some point though.

Ok cool, just wanted to make sure story wise i'd be good...but since its different. I honestly have no idea why i never even rented it considering i love the RE series, maybe i assumed it'd just be a knock off, but if its scarier, hell yeah!
