I'd say Amnesia: Dark Descent. The inability to really fight back made it much scarier to me. That's the problem with many near-great horror games; they might have wonderful atmosphere and design and plot, but ultimately if I feel I can fight your creepy monster and survive, it's not going to scare me. Dead Space 1 is the poster child, in my mind. It's also why pre-RE4 RE games were scary... the controls were so clunky you might actually die. A flaw HELPED that game series.

I will agree Condemned: Criminal Origins also scared me quite a bit when I first played it. Something about the atmosphere really worked.

Honorable mention to Alan Wake, whose creepy forest and focus on unsettling rather than jump scaring went a looong way.

Eternal Darkness, especially the moment when you are told your memory card is corrupted. I wish I had a photo of my face the first time I saw that :P

Eternal Darkness.
Sanity. The most important, yet most lacking, thing in the world these days. Try sanity today! Accept no substitutes!

Only the first time I ever played Eternal Darkness.

Did a low sanity run.

That **** freaks you out.

I don't play horror games, but HL2's Ravenholm and the part where Batman first starts hallucinating from Scarecrow's fear gas in Arkham Asylum genuinely scared me.

I did play them both late at night though. <_<

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem. The sanity effects truly made the game awesome.
