Hey /vr/
What are your favorite Horror games that are actually scary?
I am looking for some to play over the next couple months on stream

>> No.5037530

Silent Hill is still pretty scary, at least to me

>> No.5037532

>>5037524
Waxworks is pretty good

>> No.5037537

>>5037530
Its a great game, Already finished it on the PSx

>> No.5037545

Doom was scary to me as a kid. After that Undying was the only game to captivate me in such a way. Silent Hill and Sanitarium are unnerving, and great.

Just did a playthrough of doom, doom 2 and doom64

I have compiled a decent list, I am asking what people's favorites are

Gee ,seems like /vr/ autists are dying out ,thank god. Try Charnel House Trilogy OP. Its like a couple hours long and a decent way to pass your evening. Its not really /vr/ but i don't think i played horror games back then.

Ecco defender of the future (dreamcast)
Ecco (mega drive)
D2
Illbleed
Nosferathu Wrath of Malachi (must be played 100% blind, don't spoil anything about the game, not even how the game works/runs, it's worth it, it's very unique)
RE1 (but it's too well known by now)

>> No.5038660

Enemy Zero is also pretty unique, maybe not worth a full playthrough, but it is interesting

Dreamweb is not exactly scary, but dark as fuck.

>>5038861
You never played ecco? It's on the same level as silent hill2. It's a complete nightmare. It's like the movie aliens underwater in the open ocean without guns or armor with shit that you will hope doesn't exist in real life.

I'm not sure if you could say SotB is scary, it's just that some levels are... disturbing, maybe.

The game that I consider to be actually scary horror is not a retro, even if by just a couple of years.
IHNMAIMS wasn't even horror in my books, but still one of the better adventure games out there.

>> No.5040749

Clock Tower.

>>5040745
It's Basilisk-scale existential horror, but yeah the game itself isn't real spooky. Kinda like SOMA although that game is also actively terrifying (and not retro).

>>5040745
Fair enough, i might skip it

>> No.5040951

>>5040873
Don't.
It's an excellent adventure game. It's just not a horror, unless you REALLY get immersed in the characters and live their fears. But since most people don't, it's instead a great thriller, just not really scary, but simply very tense. And definitely top 10 of retro adventure games (my personal No. 5).

Eternal darkness scared me as kid but I never finished it.

I still want to play it maybe not as a part of a horror game marathon though

As far as /vr/ horror, I guess silent hill would be the best of the bunch. The alone on the dark games, System Shock 2 is kind of a horror game

>> No.5044124

The only game that ever legitimately scared me in my life was Thief: The Dark Project.

>> No.5044136

Oh yeah, SS2 as well.
I have fond remembers of huddling shivering in a dark corner of the crew quarters level playing the Gamepig to avoid having to think about the horrors awaiting me.

>> No.5044146

>>5041718
Not really. But I don't see why one would want to skip to Beast Within when Sins of the Fathers is just as good and doesn't have cringy FMV acting.
