I don't play survival horror games but one visual novel (I think?) on the DS that really gave me the chills was 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors. It has sci-fi, suspense and horror themes in it with multiple bad endings. When I played it, I got first the "neutral" ending which was more or less a cliffhanger. Then in my second playthrough, I got the WORST ending which is pure horror. Never in my life had I been so scared with a videogame or a movie or anything, I was literally trembling and almost could not sleep that night.

999 Spoilers:

Spoiler!
The ending where that girl becomes psycho and kills the main character? Because that one was very creepy.

Fear, it was the first game i played that made me jump out of my chair



Bloodborne. Something about the atmosphere an d the Cthulhu themes. I just wanted to finish that thing as soon as possible.

Valheim, or specifically, the Trolls.

The Trolls are probably the most ugliest and intimidating enemies in the entire game (besides the Swamp boss). You're there mining away in the black forest, the ground starts to shake and shudder, and the next thing you know, you're seeing a big blue mass marching slowly through the forest.

I've always felt some level of fear when you're in a game that gives you limited stamina, and a big foe to square off against. Trolls in that game can be taken down quite easily, provided to you good enough armor and dodging or enough space between you and the troll and some good arrows, but they are still a challenge in groups and they can cross water and even walk faster at times.

Certain OST pieces really emphasized the creepy aspects of certain scenes. The composer and Uchikoshi really understood where they were going with this kind of sound

Im gonna go with Dead Space because its the last horror game I legit found scary, something about the isolation and the fear of space that makes the atmosphere get really creepy for me. But other than that ehhh im really desensitized to horror games, so I usually just play them like its whatever.



Aliens Isolation. Out of every horror game i ever played this shit had my heart in my mouth so many times that i just had to stop playing and take breaks but i managed to finish it and damn it was good.



Paranormal Activity. Been watching horror movies most of my live and love them, but I had to stop playing this one at one point as it was freaking me out. Scariest VR experience for me. Non VR Resident Evil 2 on N64/PS1

lmao, I got that one in my third playthrough, second creepiest. I was referring to the one where you return to the main hall and find everyone killed, then try to escape but the killer finds and kills both you and your companions without the game even revealing who the killer was.

Speaking of endings, that reminds me of Cyberpunk's ending.

...or, uhhh, the ending I got, which certainly is a bad ending. Don't know if there's a name for it, but man, it got really creepy on a psychological level. You see V going insane on screen and it felt like I was going insane with her, it was not cool.

(edit: looking it up, apparently it's called the "Devil" ending)

Not saying it's as bad as the one you mentioned, I assume it isn't, but for me that was some really heavy shit. I loved it, to be fair

I have yet to try Cyberpunk but that ending sounds quite interesting.
