Suggest a really scary PS3 game?
March 3, 2011 10:46 AM   Subscribe

I've got this great new HDTV. I've got my 5.1 surround sound system. I've got my PS3. I've got my blackjack gum. Now all I need is a really terrifying game.

I loved Fatal Frame. I loved early Silent Hill. Heavy Rain isn't exactly horror, but it scared the crap out of me.

I'm not exactly opposed to survival horror, but I do think that it can end up being less scary and more 'ammo management' some of the time ... but regardless, a good game is a good game. I want something to make me wet myself.

Help me out, folks.

I don't have any suggestions, but the folks over at mefightclub probably do.

Condemed 2 and Siren: Blood Curse.

Dead Space or Bioshock, but in either case start with #1, because if you love the first episode you can move on to the second. Graphically either one will knock your socks off.

Is Amnesia: The Dark Descent available on that platform? Cuz that game requires diapers.

If you've got a reverse-compatible PS3, the PS2 game Rule of Rose is scary and disturbing.

F.E.A.R. and F.E.A.R. 2 have some seriously scary and immersive gameplay. Probably my favorite games of that genre.

2nding Bioshock. If played with the lights off, keep a pair of underwear handy.

Dead Space and Dead Space 2 (srsly, the pack is the creepiest baddie ever).

Silent Hill: Homecoming is really good. Especially if you can pretend it's not actually a Silent Hill game but rather a decent horror game that got jammed into an existing franchise to make money.

If you can do PS2 games Rule of Rose is creeeeeeepy.

Ooh, and you know, Amnesia isn't available for PS3, but it's available for my Mac, and I just happen to have the new TV set up as a second monitor ...

Yes. This is a good idea.

I'm playing Amnesia now, and holy crap.

Also, I've got Dead Space sitting in my trunk, and once Amnesia is done, I'll be checking it out.
