I absolutely love SH games, have so many favourites but have a bit of a backlog of SH games at the mo so am pretty overwhelmed (Dead Space, both Obscures, Cold Fear, Call Of Cthulhu DCOTE, Resi 5, Forbidden Siren 1&2, Silent Hill Origins, *loads* more). To be boring, my favourite ones are probably Silent Hill 1, SH2, Resi 1, 2 & 4, and I really love both The Suffering games. Don't know if SH-themed FPS games like Condemned and F.E.A.R. fit in here, but I played amd enjoyed them, too.
I never really got on with the first two Project Zero games, haven't tried 3 yet (but have it). Love these types of game so much, I even forced myself to sit through the godawful Deep Fear on Saturn, and am *still* thinking of persevering further with Alone In The Dark on 360.
PS: I never really got on with Eternal Darkness, either, slick game though it is.
Negative Creep wrote:Resident Evil 4, whilst a great game, is not scary in the slightest. The only genuine jump in the game (flaming zombie) is given away in the demo sequence
As much as I LOVED Resi 4 (it's one of the best games, period, imho) I have to agree that it was rarely that scary. There is one bit I found extremely sinister, though - the end credits. Basically, a montage of illustrations depicting how the parasite virus was introduced to the villagers as though it was a religion
, I found that proper creepy and a wonderful way to end such an awesome game.
