Halloween is great...
1) You have no obligation to go to your relatives' house...
2) you can dress however you want and no one bats an eye...
3)people give you free candy just because it's halloween...
4)You literally murder someone and leave the body there and no one will notice...
I love scary games. Its what I still game for now in my 40's. My most anticipated upcoming is, RE2 remaster. Made with the RE7 engine. I never played the first but in these modern times where multiplayer offerings rule the day. Thank goodness there are companies like Capcom still investing in single player scares.
I realize your list was only 7 games long and it was a good list although, Silent Hill wasn't even scary to me. It was more of a joke.
One I would suggest is Doom 3.
It got a lot of hate from Doom 1 and 2 players because they changed the formula and went for a more atmospheric experience.
Lights flickered, dark corners loomed everywhere. Its the first fps shooter I ever played that would orchestrate enemies attacking you from behind on a regular basis. So you always had to be on your toes. I refer to it as being in a haunted house.
If you haven't played Doom 3.
I would strongly recommend it. The graphics still hold up today and the campaign is lengthy coming in at about 30 hours+ on a first playthru. Even when you paused the game, the sound effects were creepy as hell. My first playthru. I was alone at home. Had the surround sound turned up and I constantly thought something was behind me in the room due to the sound effects.
Its my all time fav scare and you can't go wrong with a John Carmack game. Made me a fan of id for life.
P.S. I didn't even finish the 2016 Doom. They went back to the Quake style gameplay of the first few titles and I was hoping for another scare. Wasn't there.
Alien Isolation is a game I don't think I can ever play again. The part where it really got to me was when I was hiding in a locker waiting for that little dot to move away and it wasn't moving at all. Then it hit me. The alien wasn't moving because the AI was thinking. It was deciding whether or not to keep looking there or try somewhere else. Never had a game scare me so badly.
I reaaally want to get into horror games, I'm starting with Dead Space 3. Yes, I know that it's not a true horror game, it's more action then anything. Though the fact that I can't play it for long without getting stressed, yeah, I need to start slow. I certainly see the joy of being scared, I'd rather not get mentally scarred right off the bat. 😂
At 13 I first heard of Silent Hill by finding the original on PS1 in a box. Never made it past the street outside after the monsters first showed up, simply because I couldn't figure out *how* to continue.
Apparently I'm very brave... I've finished Outlast, RE7, Silent Hill 2 and Alien: Isolation... Well... Not Alien: Isolation... But only because of a bug that's broken my game and I have to restart from like mission 15 or something... >:( But if that hadn't happened, I would have finished it...
Still, Alien: Isolation is the scariest game I've ever played... I've never had to sing "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming." to myself except in Isolation and Outlast... That's it. Even SH2 & 3 don't scare me as much...
Halloween is totally a holiday though =| Forbidden Siren is the only game I ever owned that I never finished, it freaked me out so much (and the level with the slow old man and slow AF shotgun was so annoying) that I just sold it =| some days I'm tempted to try again, but then I just go "hmm, Naaaaa."
I still remember renting the first Silent Hill game (yes, Blockbuster - remember them? - actually rented out Playstation games at one time!) and playing it at home... alone... in the dark... oh the mistakes we make in life!
