It's a pretty old Horror game which always stuck in my mind but it was called Ecstatica.

I started playing Omori on steam. It’s more of a psychological horror game without the jumpscares. Very beautiful. Will recommend 10/10

I cannot decide if my favorite is Fatal Frame 2 or Silent Hill 2? Both games stuck with me for a long time after I beat them YEARS ago.

I still love revisiting the world and lore of both from time to time.

I also really enjoyed Clocktower 3 but that game is also a mess, haha. "Allyssaaaa"

whew lad. 
I need to dust off my ps2 and play these games again.

I think one horror game everyone should play is Alone in the Dark. It's hard to go back today and play it due to how dated it is, but it set a lot of the horror game trends in the 90s with it's fixed camera and tank controls like in Resident Evil.

One of my more modern favorite horror games is Cry of Fear. it super spooky uwu.

Manhunt has all the essentials of a Horror game. That's my favorite

I just bought a new horror game called "Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth" on GOG. So far i'm liking it. It has some good atmosphere.

@lord frank sinatra. I have postal 1 on steam. I played it a bit and i like the more horror atmosphere compared to the subsequent games, but Postal 2 is way more iconic.

yo, finished this small one just yesterday: https://orbpal.itch.io/fbc
the playtime is really short, it took me around an hour. in fact it's just an interactive visual experience for the most part. i think the setting might seem a little unusual for western players but believe me - its elegiac and eerie atmosphere will definitely worth playing it (-:

Honestly I gotta go with either the Corpse Party series or Angels of Death. Either are perfect, far from it, but I love their styles and they both hold a special place in my heart as the first horror games I actually finished without quitting

silent hill 2 is one of my fav

other than that I love the resident evil franchise I think its very cool

Silent Hill 2 is probably the game that stuck with me the longest. The imagery and amazing soundtrack makes it a masterpiece in my opinion. I still remember playing it as a teen and feeling this uneasy fear that lingered with me for hours after turning it off. I was actually afraid of revisiting the games because of how uneasy they made me feel. I can appreciate them now but I still have a difficult time replaying them. Ask any silent hill fan and they'll agree that these games leave something behind after you've finished them.

I'm about to start playing World of Horror again.

A retro lovecraft inspired game, with japanese vibes. 1 bit graphics.
The developer just came back from the dead and released some new updates.

Thinking about livestreaming it.

the only horror like games i've played is the remakes of two and three, resident evil seven, resident evil village and resident evil revelations.

my favourite out of the ones i have played is resident evil two remake, resident evil village and resident evil revelations. especially the remake of two. it was the first resident evil game i had ever played, and revelations is the latest one i have played.

the best resident evil in my opinion is resident evil two remake or resident evil village. Those two are exceptionally fun.

i think everyone should give resident evil villlage a try. it's the latest resident evil. it's also fun. lots of action as well as horror.

SILENT HILL 2!!! Nobody ever talks about it, at least nobody Ik IRL does lolol, I loved every part of that game I would call it a masterpiece, actually the whole SH series is good honestly :p I also like Amnesia and FNaF but SH2 is on a whole different level!! 


edit; I saw ppl in the comments saying Silent Hill lmaoo, I've found my ppl

I’m very into point-and-click psych horror!! My fav is definitely Fran Bow. The game itself is depraved and grim, and the music is top-notch. The entire game you’re left wondering if little Fran is a killer or not, and the artstyle is just *chefs kiss* would def recommend if you’re looking for an atypical yet fun horror-puzzle experience.

:P

I've sure been on the INTERWEBS for quite a long time....

i scream like a little kid whenever i play phasmophobia. But if you like more FPS, scifi like horror games- even though its old, Dead Space is always a nice classic.

My personal fav is the True Fear: Forsaken Souls series. It kinda started off as a spooky hidden object game but the plot and story building earned it a sequel. The sequel is more a puzzle game but still rlly good. The story is kinda confusing but the secondary plots r cool and the atmosphere and tension building is amazing. You can find it on almost all platforms.
