Horror games represent a large and growing demographic in the gaming world. Our Alan Stock is here for ComiConverse to share the horror: the 5 most terrifying games of all time.

Lights off, volume up, hunched towards the screen and gripping the controller. I was stressed. I was scared. Dammit – I was just trying to survive! Why was I doing this to myself, I kept wondering? I was playing Soma, a creepy sci-fi horror game which I finished recently, and being hunted by some horrid mutant thing. Brr. The experience made me recall some of most brilliant, terrifying games I’d ever played. I love (and kind of hate) to be terrified. I’ve played a lot of horror games over the years and I wanted to share my top 5 most scary games with you and explain what makes them so terrifying.

    Alien Isolation is definitely #1 hands down…but I’m dying to find out what’s #2!

    Click on the right arrows at the bottom of the article to find out 😉

  3. spideynut71 says:

    Soma wasn’t “terryfying”…just creepy. I’m surprised The Suffering and Condemned: Criminal Origins aren’t on your list, or even your cut list ; both were far scarier/creepier than most current or recent genre games.

  4. says:

    Yeah I agree Soma wasn’t terrifying, though I did have some horrible moments in it – Amnesia is definitely the horror crown for that. The Suffering I haven’t actually played and that was due to a lot of people telling me the game wasn’t very good or that scary, but maybe I should re-evaluate that? I seem to remember it was on PS2, I wonder if there have been any re-releases? I did think Condemned had a good atmosphere but the enemies just didn’t scare me for the most part, I think because they were so human for most of the game. Same goes for Outlast which also has a great ambience and some good jump scares. What scares you and gets really under your skin is definitely a personal thing, one of the reasons I’m keen to hear what other people found terrifying 🙂

  5. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  6. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  51. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  54. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
