A simple gun is only 500 points


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.

im plyaing the first silent hill right now. i really like it. the begining is awfully creepy (for me) but after you get used to the gameplay its not too bad.

thats my case at least. usually i am such a coward that i play a horror game for 2 secs, then press the start button and try to get some moral support XD

but after i get used to the game its a little better

Dead Space 1 and 2 really really got me. I try to play shooters if the game is steeped in the horror genre, the explosions and bullets tend to help me focus away from the details!

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...

I really felt like Dead Space 2 improved on the horror aspect so much compared to DS1.
In DS1 I could always predict when a jump scare was going to happen and I didn't really get scared by the atmosphere, DS2 was completly different for me.

There was the introduction of new enemies every now and then that kept the horror fresh, each with a slightly twisted characteristic, then there also was more of a psychological horror than the first one with the dead wife, and I liked how the horror was no longer in a distant ship but now in your home area.

Forbidden Siren

I haven't played it personally but the one of the developers also worked on SIlent Hill and the gameplay I saw of it looked great. It had those good morbid monsters you look for in horror games.

I would say my favorite horror game is Bioshock, although I haven't played many other horror games and mostly read things about them or watched videos for lack of money/console.
I would say it's my favorite horror game because it has the world made in a way where at first appearance everyone looks insane, until you realize the reason for their lifestyle, except for the main bosses, which through their audio logs, sound pretty much just insane.
But then the little audio clips from the bosses make the game even more interesting because it adds to the atmosphere even though their work is mostly contained into one area.

I have heard Condemned: Criminal Origins is a good game, and bought it, but haven't played it yet.

F.E.A.R. I have played and liked but I feel like it is too action based to really be terrifying, like I'm mostly doing cool kill shots and ignoring the little things that are supposed to make you uneasy.

Amnesia I found to have way too easy of AI to really make formidable opponents and make the environment scary. The atmosphere was pretty good otherwise, but the AI is just so bad that it made it funny.


Right now I'm looking foward to trying Condemned and The Evil Within.

I've never really played a horror game, but there are some horror games I want to play. Like, Slender, Slender the Arrival, and Outlast.

i also had scary moments with that game you turned on generators and had some ghost girl chasing you


Sounds like the second chapter of Slender the Arrival.
