Halloween is a perfect time to dig into the plethora of great horror games out there. Instead of touting Outlast, Amnesia, and the other usual suspects, we thought it might be fun to look at some classic examples of the genre. Every title on this list is at least 10 years old. These eight games are not only great horror games, they're just great games, period.

Think we forgot one? Tell us what it is in the comments!


Hailing from the far-off world of 1998, Sanitarium puts players in the shoes of a character known simply as "Max." He's an amnesiac who was knocked unconscious in a car accident, and awoke from a coma in a derelict sanitarium. Exploring the building, Max will be teleported to various locations, all of which are unnerving. Deformed children, ghosts from the character's past, and even ancient gods make an appearance. It nails the atmosphere, even if it is a 2D isometric adventure game.
