Last night, i was playing Call Of Duty: Black Ops Zombies on the map "Five" and the Pentagon Thief stole my only gun, so it was pretty terrifying playing a round without a weapon except for my knife.

Does that count?

Hhhm... Tough Choice Between Amnesia TDD and SCP containment breach.

Both are real creepy but the stone statue never fails to rustle my jimmies and SCP containment breach have nice updates over time. (And its free!)

So, I'd go for SCP containment breach and will be always waiting for new monsters and stuff...

SCP never really scared me but more on the lines of making me mad each time i got caught, i also had scary moments with that game you turned on generators and had some ghost girl chasing you

im a coward so i havnt played many horror games.

all the ones i played were really mellow and gentle but i did enjoy them all alot.

rule of rose (only play this for the story. the rest is awful but its still a great game in my opinion. also, you have a dog :3)

haunted ground (its like a hide and seek game where you have to solve puzzles while avoiding the stalker. also, you have a dog :3)

clock tower 3 (hide and seek again. also puzzle solving. you dont have a dog )

im pretty sure those were the only console horror games ive played.

as for small games you can download for free and use rpg maker i really recommend:

ib
witchs house
the crooked man
mad father

the console games (all ps2) dont really have any jump scares. rule of rose is by far the most gentle when it comes to scares but is also by far the most brutal when it comes to the dark creepy atmosphere.

the downloadable games all have jump scares but they pretty much have to in order to be horror games.

i personally think there are 2 kinds of horror video games. ones with the hero like main character that fights off the monsters and one with the defenseless character that just tries to survive or get away from something. i much more prefer the second style because the fear feels more realistic.

both of them are extremely different from 3. thats why i only played 3. 1 and 2 are point and click adventure while 3 is a hide and seek survival one.

Yeah, kinda agree on that; After awhile of getting used to, the monsters ain't very scary. But still, I find the Statue's sudden appearance always frightening.

Also, I wanna talk a bit about dead space... The first one was the most scary but after EA decided to milk the **** out of it, it had lost its scariness...

Though it's not specifically of the horror genre, Metroid is an awesome series with some pretty grotesque things involved. You're isolated and you have to kill horrendous things.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Zombies


Lol. Not horror in the slightest.

I was on the 3rd floor and I had to reach the 2nd floor before I died. I had no points.

I love Resident Evil & Forbidden Siren series

I forgot that the first RE games were under horror.

Obviously I'm too afraid that I didn't venture beyond Silent Hill...though I did play F.E.A.R., just the first one. I learned from several posts/reviews/comments that the sequels weren't good so I didn't bother with those.

I tried to play it at night...alone...but not in the dark 'cause I won't be able to see the controls very well, but yeah...at night and alone...I will never do that again.

Anyways, I'm curious about the Forbidden Siren you mentioned. I think I'll look it up.

Me! I am. Do they come to the Xbox 360 or PS3 or next-gen consoles?

As for me, I love Outlast for PC and Resident Evil 6.
