An old one, but a good one. Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a great game that uses the environment to scare you and keep you tense throughout the whole game. Just as you're getting comfortable in an area, you discover you're not alone.

The graphics are a little older and certainly aren't next-gen, but the hours of wandering around this creepy castle are well worth it--especially once things start to fall in to place in terms of plot and Daniel's past.

  • Jump Scare Rating (things that jump out and scare you): 7
  • Environmental Scare Rating (the need to pee your pants from walking around): 9

This game is available on PC on Steam.

    About Fatal Frame and the Wii. There are two games, a remake of Fatal Frame 2, and Fatal Frame 4, but they're separated games, it's not like FF4 is a remake,

    Nice list! I'm waiting for Dying Light, Alien: Isolation, and I might get The Evil Within. Another game that is similar to Outlast, Alien: Isolation, and Amnesia is Daylight for PS4 and PC coming out April 8th.

    See... I need to man up and just play through Amnesia. I only got 40 minutes in and something growled as I went to open a door. I was like NOPE!

    Oh man, Silent Hill. Why don't they make another one? :(

    Does anyone remember the Siren games...?

    I thought about adding Siren in here, but I can't remember why I didn't. I think Fatal Frame took Siren's place.

    Love this list! The Evil Within and Dying Light are 2 games I'm looking forward to for their horror aspect.

    Awesome list! I'm surprised by how many of these games I've actually played. I'm such a baby when it comes to horror games.

    Nice list. Do you think we'll have a triple A survival horror anytime soon? For example: The Evil Within?

    The Evil Within, obviously. Alien: Isolation is something I'm tentatively crossing my fingers for. Dying Light from Warner Bros. could be good, and Everybody's Gone To Rapture from The Chinese Room (whom I am not a fan of and is also considered 'indie') could also be alright.
