    Condemned was really good up until the end, the ending was stupid and alien isolation I found got boring fast.

    Holy crap, somebody else actually played Sylvio. Gutted that the sequel won't come to Xbox One though. :(
    Are you listening? Okay. Grass grows, birds fly, sun shines, and brother? I hurt people.

    I’d add soma to the list as well

    I read that Outlast 2 pales in comparison to what made the first great. I was warned not to waste my money on it (even when it was on sale for a Niner).
    Yeah Buddy!!!

    The only horror title missing I can see may be rise of nightmares...years since I've played it but did enjoy it. Great list though, played most and can agree
    Count your blessings.

    Great list! Condemned really does need another sequel.
    One thing I miss about being a kid playing games is being genuinely scared of a game. Playing Silent Hill 2 as a 10 year old was terrifying stuff!
    The most a game can do to me these days is make me jump which is sad!
    Now I fear taxes and responsibilities, the horror!

    Alien Isolation was a great game especially on Nightmare difficulty

    I thought Rise of Nightmares was X360.

    Kinda surprised the first Outlast isn't on here
    Every game with DLC that you pay for is a paid update.

    In my opinion, Outlast 1 was much scarier than the second. That may have been because it was one of the first horror games I played, but I think that it generally had more tension, and a much better atmosphere, being set in an insane asylum.

    Depends on how the game was played. Outlast was made scary by including perma death. And Dead space 2 also did it by limiting 3 saves, making players pay for mistakes on both.

    However, I found Outlast obscene far too often. Alien Isolation was by far the scariest on the list because the ALien seemed to know what you were thinking at time, and if you had the kinects, it could hear you!

    Alien Isolation is in my top 5 best games I've played I think.

    Resi 7 Biohazard - played the first chapter, what myself and haven't gone back again since...such a big girl.

    nice list, but the most scariest game that i remember is Project Zero on the original xbox. couldn`t play it in the darkness with headphones which usually is my sweet spot. goosebumps again and again after shocking moments. what a great nightmare this was!!!

    I would pay a stupid amount of money for the Condemned games to receive the remaster treatment. One of my favorite series of all time. Great list though! My only disagreement is Dying Light. Sure things got more tense at night, but I never felt scared for a second during the game. But either way it was a blast to play!
