Updated October 20, 2020 2.8k votes 388 voters 8.7k views49 items

There are tons of good horror games on Steam, but which games are really worth buying? This list seeks to answer that question by ranking the best horror games available right now. It seems like developers are making a lot of scary games on Steam these days, which is great in theory, but it also makes it kind of difficult to find the spookiest games Steam has to offer. What do you think are the top 10 best horror games in the Steam Store?

Below you'll find a ranked list of what other gamers believe to be the scariest horror games on Steam, including popular indie horror games like Amnesia: The Dark Descent, as well as super popular titles like Left 4 Dead 2, Resident Evil 4,  and Phasmophobia. One of the newer horror games on Steam is Observer, a cyberpunk horror game that messes with your head through a series of puzzles and crazy flashbacks. And if you're looking for free Steam horror games, The Grounding is a solid choice.

Vote up the top PC horror games that had the hair on your neck standing, and vote down all the duds.
