I need a game to scare a friend that watches a lot of horror movies lol. That also has somewhat easy controls.

Any suggestions?

Is Prey any good? It's pretty cheap right now because of the sale.

Prey is really fun but it's not really a horror game, same with Dead Space. Two excellent games, IMO, but placing them in the horror genre is a bit too far. They're just action games in creepy atmospheres/against creepy enemies. Still though, both fantastic. Prey is a steal at that price.

Edit: Unless you're a lightweight/have a weak stomach/are extremely jumpy, then I guess they're horror.

Ultimately I think your best best is the Condemned series. There's not much true horror on the system.

Condemned: Criminal Origins. A truly terrifying experience in places and has some of the best atmosphere in any game.

I would also vote Alan Wake, not massively scary but it's very tense and dark, plus it also has some of the best atmosphere. It's coupled with some extremely tight 3rd person shooting mechanics. A must play.

Silent Hill 2

Even though it's a survival horror game, it's still the best around.

It's backwards compatible.

Dead Space is just as much horror as resident evil 4, 5, and revelations that are all considered horror games, left RE6 off that list bc that game is just a joke
