Most video games allow you to play as an unstoppable killing machine that can mow down dozens of puny enemies with ease. Horror games, however, are different; they tend to feature weak heroes that must simply try to survive with limited resources. Nothing makes a game scarier than a feeling of extreme vulnerability; although terrifying sights and sounds, spooky atmospheres and disturbing stories can certainly contribute as well. This list features games that excel in all of those categories.
