The website Soda Head made a public poll regarding which game was the scarier. And Silent Hill was considered the scariest videogame, against Resident Evil, Bioshock, F.E.A.R and others!
We hope your Halloween was as hair-raising and horrifying as a night spent playing “Fatal Frame” with the lights off — and we mean that in the best way possible. But “Fatal Frame” (our personal favorite) didn’t manage to grab the top spot in our Scariest Video Game poll. That honor went to “Silent Hill,” Konami’s legendary psychotic survival horror.
Of course, it was impossible to list all of the scary games out there, so we had to limit our choices to just a few popular titles, and we did regretfully leave out one important pick from our list of options, but we’ll get to that in a second. Even with the “Other” option, the clear winner in this poll was “Silent Hill.”
What Is the Scariest Video Game Ever?
31% Were Most Freaked Out by ‘Silent Hill’
Does it really come as a surprise? The “Silent Hill” series has been knocking down even the sturdiest horror aficionados for well over a decade, and the series just keeps getting weirder. While “Resident Evil” and “Fatal Frame” pit you against traditional monsters like zombies and ghosts, “Silent Hill” literally pits you against nightmares.
Your enemies range from the notorious Pyramid Head, who drags a six-foot blade and sodomizes mannequins, to two-faced baby monsters, who walk on their hands and cry when you attack them. Unless you’ve got nerves of steel, you’ll want to keep the lights and your friends close while you play any of the games in this effed-up series.
