Silent Hill 4 is pretty creepy...

Also Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem for the gamecube is also scary. It also happens to be one of my favourite games. And the whole RE series is pretty scary I guess... and it just so happens to be my favourite series of all time...

Fatal Frame scared the bejeebers outa me. I played it with one of my friends, and the results were hilarious. *Remembers being paranoid about going into each room and screaming when a ghost popped out* :lol: Ahh, good times. :)

anybody have any recommendations for survival horror that doesn't become combat based? Actually, I'd like it if there was no realistic way to fight the enemies at all and it was more of a run/hide simulator.

most survival horror games start on the 'run the heck away' side and then devolve into having to 'fight' things constantly. it's just not very scary for me when my greatest fear is running out of machine gun rounds...

as far as games I liked, fatal frame 2 and silent hill 4 both did well until the combat aspects were introduced. I really liked the idea of silent hill 4--going mad in a tiny apt...but then he found ways to leave and the game got terribly uncool fast.

If I remember correctly from the review I read of it a long time ago; Call of Cthulhu - Dark Corners of the Earth (http://www.callofcthulhu.com/) doesn't have a lot of practical combat in it, but I'm probably in error.

I read a review for a game called Rule of Rose once, and the reviewer was griping about there being almost no combat.

Evil Dead: Hail to the King had a few scary parts in it. You start out back in the house, and the record is stuck playing this one part over and over, and undead start jumping through the windows and crap. I haven't played the next two. Maybe some day. :( There's more scary games but I can't think of them. :(

Yes I was freaked the Hell out of that game (Especially the Diary you find where the guy progresses being turned into a Zombie (Ewww), not to mention you hear every creak and moan on that game, and the Zombies bangning against the windows (Which scared the Piss out of me almost literally, when they busted through the Window) Game gave me freakin' nightmares.

Lol Me and my friend used to play that in HIS DARK basement, it does scare the hell out of me once I try to go to sleep. But Does'nt scare me as much as Resident Evil.

10 years ago, when I was in Kindergarden, the Muppet Treasure Island game was the most terrifying thing I had ever seen or played. Muah... It still gives me the creepers!

For a Zelda game, I thought Majora's Mask was pretty disturbing. The kid who's dad was a zombie, the little cut-scene when Link put on masks and you saw his screaming face...some of it was quite creepy. It's still brilliant though.
The insanity effects in Eternal Darkness were pretty weird too.
