Spooky locations persist in a number of video games but there’s something especially eerie about forests. Perhaps it’s the surrounding trees and how they’re seemingly watching the player. Maybe it’s the atmosphere that can go from still to terrifying in an instant. Whatever the case may be, let’s take a look at 15 spooky forests from various games.

According to legends, the spirits of fallen samurai reside in the trees of Yagata Forest, apparently whispering among themselves. Jin will eventually investigate the legend and encounter hanging bodies before fighting off bandits. The bandits are revealed to be leveraging the legend and causing trouble for anyone who stumbled into the forest. But even with that aside, it’s the quiet, foreboding atmosphere that contributes to the spookiness more than anything else.
