What are some PC games that were actually scary?

Besides Amnesia, Prenumbra, Metro 2033, Silent Hill series, RE series, Fatal Frame series, or Dead Space series.

Looking to get started in Cthulu though. Any other recommendations? Could be an old game too if you want.

Quake 1 scared the s$@% out of me when I first played it (1997). The Eviscerator (edit: actually called the Fiend) was the enemy that caused the scare factor to go off the scale. I also think that this game was so scary for me because it was the first FPS in full polygon 3D, and it was in a scary and creepy setting.

I've found Doom 3 to be scarier than pretty much everything else I've played.
Gamers: We want better performance in Dark Souls! PC Port plx!
FromSoft: So you want framerate issues on PC?! OK!

My friend showed me this endless stairs game last time I was at his house. I don't know that I would call it scary, necessarily, but it's definitely suspenseful. Then again, we lost not too horribly far down the stairs, so it could get worse. Plus I would think playing it alone at night could definitely induce some heart rate problems.
The world gets weirder every day.
