Wanting to do horror and actually managing to pull it off well are too very different things, as more than a few games have showed us in the past. At the same time, however, there’s no shortage of those that have shown that when you do pull it off, it can make for moments that stamp themselves in players’ memories. From heart-stopping jumpscares to unexpectedly terrifying sequences, games have found a variety of ways to crescendo to absolutely terrifying moments, and here, we’re going to talk about a few of them. 

FIRST HUNTER ENCOUNTER (DEAD SPACE)

Dead Space is a horrifying game that tries to scare you to your wit’s end in a number of different ways- which, of course, include specific sections where you have to escape from a terrifying stalker enemy in the form of the Hunter. The first time this happens is one of the scariest sequences in the game. After quickly realizing that wasting your ammo on this thing is going to do you no good and dashing out of the room in a panic, hearing the thing’s lumbering footsteps slowly moving in your direct can induce quite a panic.
