What are some retro games that are similar to Junji Ito comics?

>> No.2724000

No other game comes close to giving me as many nightmares as Wolfenstein 3D has.

>> No.2724007

Famicon Detective Club 2 is pretty god damn terrifying at times

>> No.2724058

Does Silent Hill count as retro?

>> No.2724065

The first one does. As for the first 3 RE games and a few of its spin offs.

That being said I think RE2 gets my vote. I like Nemesis more for its ability to jump scare you, but overall RE2 is a better horror game.

>> No.2724097

Then Silent Hill should take the cake

>> No.2724112

Not in order but :

Clock Tower
Silent Hill
Resident Evil
I Have No Mouth
Project Firestart
Sweet Home

Special Mention :
Any Horrorsoft game, for amazing presentation but shit gameplay.

>> No.2724196

So pretty bare as far as gameplay/plot goes but with a really good/scary gimmick?

>> No.2724205

Alone in The Dark 1,2,3
Shadow of the Comet
Prisoners of Ice
7th Guest
Gabriel Knight: Sins of our fathers
Phantasmagoria I&II

>> No.2724208

More of being an awesome cult classic than actually being scary.

>> No.2724213

Number 3 was actually legit scary, though.

>> No.2724330

No Nocturne?

>> No.2724359

The atmosphere in all 3 is pretty legit imo

>> No.2724360

Great list. Project Forester was masterpiece on C64 and I can say that I enjoyed all Horrorsoft games despite them having bad gameplay.

I'd add It Came from Desert. It is basically tribute to B movies, but the atmosphere and music were awesome
I would also add Moonstone on Amiga as well.

>> No.2724503

The House of the Dead 1

>> No.2724586

Sweet Home

>> No.2724736

This. Silent Hill is not only the best pre-2000 horror game, it's the best PS1 game

>> No.2724741

Deadly Premonition was originally a dreamcast title.
It's not "scary" per se. but it's a great horror game.

>> No.2726134

Harvester. Just kidding, that wasn't scary - it was hilarious.

>> No.2726176


The fucking mud men in the red knight's corner. Their arrival still chills me to the bone.

Earliest jump scare I remember in games.

>> No.2726187

Clocktower (PS1)
Silent Hill
Parasite Eve
Mansion of Hidden Souls
