Horror may have gotten its start in the pages of books, and later movies, but the one place it seems to have found a permanent home in the world of video games. There's something about playing a character being hunted by zombies, werewolves, or animatronic monsters that puts the player right into the action, which no movie can emulate. One of the best aspects when it comes to horror games is that each spine-tingling release is often followed by an equally chilling sequel, and developers don't seem to be stopping anytime soon.
Some of the best horror game series have been around for decades, and many of their most popular titles came out when graphics weren't nearly as immersive as they are today. Despite that technical problem, the best horror game franchises have easily overcome limitations on graphics and sound to become solid entries in the genre, but which horror game franchise is the most bone-chilling of them all?
From Resident Evil to Silent Hill to Left 4 Dead and more, vote up all your favorite series to see which is the most terrifying.
