Scariest Games By Year?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Scariest Games By Year?

It's nice to see good scary games made in this generation, but we can't forget the scariest games from years past.

Splatterhouse (1988):

Sweet Home (1989):

Space Gun (1990):

Alone in The Dark (1992):

Doom (1993):

I'd put more in but this post would be too long. What do you think are the scariest games by year? Any genre applies, as long as it's scarier than other games from that particular year.

Well, I'm too chicken to play horror games myself, and I only started watching horror let's plays this decade, so I'll start there.

2010- Amnesia: The Dark Descent
2011- Dead Space 2
2012- SCP: Containment Breach
2013- Outlast
2014- Alien Isolation
2015- Until Dawn
2016- Layers of Fear
2017- Resident Evil 7
2018- Visage (so far)



For 1999 it has to be Silent Hill. That game was really.... something.

For 2001 I'd say Silent Hill 2, because of Pyramid Head.

Here are some more old-school scary games.

System Shock (1994)

Clock Tower (1995)

Resident Evil (1996)

Blood (1997)

Resident Evil 2 (1998)

I had no idea Sweet Home existed. That looks like one SUPER advanced NES game. Plus it was produced by Juzo Itami, which is another plus



Muda Muda Muda Muda Muda Muda!!!!

Sweet Home actually inspired Capcom to make Resident Evil. :)
