Completely terrifying..

Having never played any of the old Silent Hills (apart from the first, barely made it to the highschool when I was about 6 or something), I started SH2 the day before the HD collection came out - got delivered early. I think its fair to say I completely shit my pants throughout 90% of the game.

Maxed out Homecoming, not that scary so I wasn't expecting much of a scare but yeah, 19 and completely traumatized by a videogame.. anyone feel the same way? Haha

SH2 and SH3 were scary the first time, but nowhere near as scary as SH4 imo.

I'm 19 too, and I'm always looking forward to be traumatized by any good scary videogame! It happened to me with Resident Evil 4... I was 13 the first time I tried it. Because of that, the game still gives me shivers every time I try to play it, but... Actually, it's kind of nice. Fear is one of the best feelings I can ask for in a videogame. Really makes them to be remembered.

I'll be playing this one soon...

Two words. FATAL FRAME. Try those games. :L Then you'll know scary in video games.

Also, a bit of F.E.A.R too. Them two franchises are the shit with scares.

F.E.A.R. was something different. SH brings me back to the good old days. Awake past 1 AM trying to get down the street covered in fog... Oh God not that sound again... (Gets attacked).... (Dies)... GAME OVER. Happy trails!

Silent Hill is a much different type of scary from Dead Space. Dead Space starts atmospheric then turns into a shooter with a few atmospheric segments. Silent Hill (especially 2 vs 3) is best when you are alone, in the dark, and everything is quiet and the shadows scare you. 3 tries to push it a little more with more monsters and blood, but 2 lets you scare yourself more than the game ever scares you.

Plus 2 has probably the most brilliant blend of psychological horror, enemy design, and story of any game. Period.

I loved Dead Space 1 and 2 a metric ton, but for me they pale in comparison to the early Silent Hill games. I've gotten every ending on 2, and even then when I booted up the HD collection yesterday the apartment building still gave me the willies.

Oh, and 26 and love horror, so there's no shame in these freaking you out. :P

Oh, and props to the Fatal Frame drop. Fatal Frame II is scarier in it's first 5 minutes than almost any other game I've played. Those need an HD remake!

I fully don't see the deal with Amnesia. It's not that scary when half the time you're staring at a wall waiting for your screen to stop wobbling around. Now, Silent Hill on the other hand. Ho-ley-shit. It's not just throwing scares in your face, it's making you feel so insanely uncomfortable that you struggle to carry on. Dead Space, while amazing and possibly the greatest horror game this generation, always felt like you could just shoot your way out of anything.

I only really remember a few parts up to the Snake thing (never got further than that, I was like 5 at the time haha). Pretty scary game at the time but can't imagine it having the same impact now.

Finished Silent Hill 3 now, not so psychologically damaging as SH2, but damn scary nonetheless.. on the first playthrough anyway. As soon as I had the anime costume the atmosphere in the game was just gone haha.

This! NOTHING compares to Fatal Frame 1 and 2. That is a level of fear in game that has never been matched and it makes me sad that more people haven't played or didn't give time to play these. I always had to play in increments to finish these games and couldn't do long stretches at a time. As someone else stated Fatal Frame 2 is scarier in the first 5 minutes than any other game is in full. Damn I wish they would make a sequel that wasn't for the Wii.

Mmm. I love Fatal Frame. The Japanese sure do know how to make horror, weather it's video games or films. And no video game nor movie has ever really scared me, Fatal Frame has been the closest to ever scaring me. I appreciate creepy rather than silly jump scares, and I mean really creepy. I love it.

SH Homecoming was scary but FEAR1 is the best one, as far as scary goes, to me.

Hahah if they ever re-make the first F.E.A.R game with the RE(gamecube) graphics I would shit myself. Try playing Resident Evil 3 the first time. Something about NEMESIS stalking you through the whole game just sent shivers down my spine. The sound of them boots...those boots...

every single SH game has had me on edge and really wanting to get hold of the HD collection and downpour but F.E.A.R, dead space 1 and 2 have had to be the most recent games that have had me shitting myself.

I'll never forget the first time I encountered a crimsonhead, scared me ****less. I done a 180 and ran back through the door I came from, waited ages went in and could hear the savage breathing. Once I plucked up enough courage i went for it, Crimsonhead 1 - Jill 0.

I personally find SH2 scarier than SH3, seems the atmosphere of SH2 is darker.

Is this really what the worlds come to when people think dead space is scary? A few jump scares throughout a 8 hour game is terrible. Fatal Frame, Silent Hill, old school Resident Evil, and Amnesia/Penumbra are the way to go.

Yeah I never played any of the Silent Hill games before either. Just started up SH2 got halfway through the opening cutscene and said fuck this. Shit creeped me out. No way I'm playing this at 3am all by myself lmao.

Scariness is all subjective. I played every F.E.A.R. game, and didn't really find those to be all that scary. I loved both Dead Spaces, and found those to be moderately scary. Silent Hill is the only series to ever actually cause me to have a nightmare the night after. With that said, I love all of those series.

I will say, however, the one game that ever caused me to legitimately be scared to take another step was Alan Wake. That game was like a perfect blend of story, scares, and atmosphere. I have yet to play American Nightmare though. I typically don't care for arcade games, sadly.

I kind of agree, although the atmosphere in the first one was pretty scary throughout. It did a really good job of sucking you into the situation you were put in I thought, Dead Space 2 however, whilst still a good game, lost all sense of fear to me anyway.

But yeah, Silent Hill all the way for scares. Still haven't gone back to Silent Hill 2 since finishing it, I'm that scared! Haha
