Plenty of games have some spooky moments in them. Some parts of games jump out and scare you, while other bits creep up into your spine, sending shivers through your body like a wave of suspense. Some of these games scare you and it’s done before you can even realize what happened, as your instincts take over, you  blast out at whatever it is that scared the hell out of you and you move on.

You cannot kill or deal with the horror that is dogging you at your heels. Sometimes it’s all the more subtle too, all that needs to be done sometimes is to have some good auditory and lighting queues to make a player jump. Whatever the flavor of fear, developers have quite a few tricks up their sleeves these days. While there are undoubtedly countless numbers of moments in gaming where people have been scared out of their pants we are going to stick to the one’s that have stuck in our mind. Keep in mind there may be a few spoilers in here, so careful what you read.

1. Gone Home:

There is a scene in this game where you find a secret room with a pentagram painted on a small, antique table with candles set up on all its points, with a book about the “other side.” This entire game is pretty spooky, actually. The main character gets home very late at night, in the middle of a thunder and lightning storm to an old, dark, empty mansion. The audio creaks and cracks, there are sounds that resemble footprints clunking around, but there was just something about this small, claustrophobic room with spiritual markings in it.
