Best Story In A Horror Game

#1Scott9843Posted 7/3/2013 7:46:56 PM
What, in your opinion, is the best story in a horror game. Any platform. I don't care which game has the most jump scares or is the most disturbing or twisted (although, that is a huge plus). I'm talking strictly story. Please state your recommendations and why.

I don't play a lot of horror games but I heard Silent Hill 2 had a good story.

I liked The Suffering's story the most out of any Horror game that I've played. It wasn't so much the MC's story as it was the back story of the prison and the island, and how they
presented it. It was cool to see how each monster and boss originated.

This one ranks in my top 5 Horror games.

Silent Hill 2 is the most personal I've encountered, and that makes it amazing.

I also love the lore behind the Fatal Frame series, especially Fatal Frame 2.

SH2 followed by SH4.
Also, Chess is a game of skill much like all gameplay only video games. So it is pretty mindless if you think about it.-mtjormitch

Although the story is ridiculous now, I have to say Resident Evil back in the day. Although Silent Hill 1 is pretty freaky. Never played 3 which is basically its sequel. But I do know what happens to a specific character in 3 that was in 1. And it pisses me off what happens! lol

Dead Space 1 was good too.
