Top 5 Horror Games that Don't Depend on Jumpscares

3. Resident Evil 4

Considered by many to be the greatest Resident Evil title of all time, this one is yet another classic in the horror genre that gives you a good scare without any cheap tricks up its sleeves. 

The plot is simple: Leon Kennedy has to rescue the president's daughter and bring her safely home. But of course, that's not going to be as easy as it sounds.

Not only is there is a village of full of villagers straight out of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre trying to kill you, there's a giant castle full of possessed cult members and a mysterious island where things, well, get weird. 

Resident Evil 4 is all about atmosphere. You've seen chainsaw-wielding enemies and giants before, but this game becomes scarier the farther you progress through it -- and the creepy atmosphere just hangs over you like a fog, making everything worse.

Oh, and don't forget the Iron Maidens! Yeah, nothing says creepy like Medieval torture devices mating with faceless demons ...
