    What is probably the best horror game out there? I've been looking for a scary game for awhile, I was going to pick up Fatal Frame 2 but dropping 50-60 on a ps2 game isn't something I want to do at the moment.

    Fatal Frames are supposed to be the best. I would get them on PS2, the Xbox ones I had looked shitty when I was playing them on my 360.

    Earlier Silent Hills were pretty creepy, haven't played newer ones.

    Fatal Frame is good.

    RE2 is the best survival horror game, but not the scariest.

    They should remake system shock 2 for the 360/ps3. I remember that one being pretty creepy

    Silent Hill was a great game. I don't know about 2 and on though. I need to play them I guess.

    I was going to say RE2, I'm actually in the middle of that game :o

    I got severely lost so I haven't gone back to it in like a week though. :hs:

    I never was good at RE games but I do like them. RE2 is the best imho.

    Others said system shock 2, it's a really good game but has pretty dated graphics that rival quake 2/unreal 1

    I'd say Silent Hill games, especially the first two.

    Though I gotta admit Fatal Frame makes me shit myself, if only because it makes me extremely paranoid always wondering what will be next and if I'll find it in the next corner or not.

    dead space was AWESOME. it's not the most scary game, but it's got an awesome creep factor and if you have a good audio setup it's pretty amazing. the way they eliminated the hud is also genius.

    All the ones mentioned are good, resevil, silenthill, deadspace, ss2,etc.

    However i never played it, i watched my gf play fatal frame and that shit was fucking scary. Busting out the camera and seeing a nasty fucking ghost coming straight for your ass.

    Woah. Really. Woah.

    Also, left 4 dead is one no one mentioned. While its heart is a shooter, the first couple days of playing it had me jumping and screaming into my mic like i was really getting chased by zombies.

    Wish i could have that moment again each time i played it. It was fucking great.

    Dead Space had its annoying parts but overall it was a fun game.

    I only know 360 games and the horror-type games on that that I've liked are Condemned and Dead space.

    Dead Space was the only one that actually freaked me out at times. Surprised the fuck out of me a few times.

    Dead Space and Left 4 Dead are the best you'll find at the moment. The new Fatal Frame for Wii is worth keeping an eye on, but who knows when it'll come out.

    I tried the demo for Siren on PSN and was not impressed. Yahtzee nailed it in his review.

    Silent Hill 2 is the best horror game of all time.

    Dead Space is the best horror game of the last couple years.

    Cliffs on System Shock 2?
    System? Story? Gameplay Style? 1st or 3rd person?
