    Horror games are much more involving, Amnesia is unbelievably scary, there's no movie that can do what that game did.

    While I haven't watched many horror films I do play horror games, and as a whole I would say the games do a great job of building tension and getting the heart rate slightly raised before trying to scare you. Notable examples are the basement in 'The Last Of Us' where you have to run from a generator to a door and have little to no hope of clearing the room of enemies, another game where it gets the atmosphere spot on is 'Resident Evil 4', I found some bits of this seriously jumpy, at the start alone when there's the guy with the chainsaw.

    Not really played many "scary" video games. Going to get a gaming PC soon so might play some.

    Dead Space 2 is an amazing game and can get a little scary at times, but only under the right conditions. You have to be sitting alone in a completely darkened room at night, playing with a hi-fi surround sound system, and it can get a bit scary.

    LoL, I wouldn't consider Dead Space a scary game. In fact I cant think of any triple A titles that are.

    All you need is a screen in front of you and a good headset then you're set for horror games. Bonues points if you can get a VR headset, then you better also get an adult diaper! Trust me it gets REALLY scary with VR XD

    I don't even play horror games because they stop me sleeping at night but horror movies don't affect me much. I think it's the active vs passive nature of video games.
