Any Good PC horror games?
Is there any really good horror games out for the PC, i love horror(esp the Sci-fi/fighting hell type) games mainly the RPG style of play. The ones i have got are (and got abit bored with)

Silent hill series(really bloody good)
CLive barkers Undying
Doom3
Realms of the Haunting(wish i could get that to work)
Fear(didnt really find that game all that scary)
System Shock2
AVP 2

Are there any other good ones out there to buy at the moment?

You find Doom 3 a good horror game but lack to find FEAR scary? That's like saying a kids crayon drawing is better than a Picasso.

Get the original AvP. Far more dirty-pants inducing than the sequal. Especially the original which didn't allow mid-mission saving. :shaking:

Freespace 2 Open: Transcend by Ransom Arceihn.

And that's not only to show loyality towards FS2_Open, it really gave me goosebumps. Great campaign.

Also play the Sync campaign from same guy.

Fear is a better game than doom butonly freaked me out a couple of times i found that after the first couple of levels it was pretty much the same but it still is a brillant game, i just prefer Doom's storyline alright it isnt well exacuted in the game but thats the kind of fiction i like. Fear has a good storyline but that isnt what i go for its just my taste to be all honest out of all of them i like silent hill 2 the most out of them all, its the only game i have played that has freaked me out every time i play it and i don't know why, i havent even seen all the endings yet. I really did enjoy Transcend, i had to play it about 5 times to figure out what was going on.

Re: Any Good PC horror games?
My computer class teacher reccommeds a game that I forgot the name of.  :D

It is a really old one, wherein you turn into a cockroach, and have to maneuver through a motel, facing puzzles. Excellent graphics for a decade-old game. Very graphic, very creepy. Memorable scene: a dead rat in a mousetrap that can come alive and eat you if you venture too close. Looks waay too real... *shudders* :shaking:

Can't remember... the... friggin'... name...  :mad:

Bad Mojo?


Goddamnit, I need a life. I never even played that game and I remembered it by your description (presuming that I'm correct about the game, which is very likely). :lol:

@ Dark Hunter: Yup, sounds like Bad Mojo.

I would recommend Call of Cthulhu - Dark Corners of the Earth. It's freaking freaky sometimes. And it's fun to get the hero to commit suicide. :D

I hear no mention of the Resident Evil Games here, I found them spooky enough, and in the original I fair jumped out of my seat when the dogs jumped through the window!  :nervous: Freaked me right out!

Then there's Return to Castle Wolfenstein, but that was a little Meh!

and what's that one with the female vampire who slays nazis?? I can't remember the name of it right now?

Seconded. Gamecube remake damn well scared the hell out of me now and then, and Resident Evil 4 was extremely atmospheric in certain sections.

That's the one! Although I would class this one more of an action game than a horror game!

Re: Any Good PC horror games?
Have you tried Condemned? It's by the same company as F.E.A.R., but (surprisingly) it actually has a decent story and at times excellent atmosphere. You might also be interested in The Suffering and its sequel, but that's less of a genuinely creepy game and more a horror themed action game with some cool stylistic elements.

I'll second Call of Cthulhu; while it starts to get more than a little tedious once you get your hands on a weapon, it's by far the best first person horror game I've come across. Most of the other games I'd care to name have already been mentioned, although it's good to see that for once I don't have to recommend Silent Hill.

Re: Any Good PC horror games?
i have tried to play the Res games, but they are im my opinion not very good ports to PC, the only console game that to me has ported well to pc was the Silent hill. I was told to avoid Call of Cthulhu by mates, mite start playing undying again, i ave been for ages trying to find Norturne, i remeber playing the demo and loved it. I got blood Rayne but the game kept skipping cutscenes and played at a stupid speed, it was like watching a DVD on fast forward.
