List Rules Vote for your favorite PlayStation horror game.

If you owned a PlayStation at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few horror games in your collection. After all, is there anything better than a scary video game that will make you jump out of your skin as you play it? The games on this list pit you against zombies, mutants, animals, and even other humans that are bent on killing you. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best PlayStation horror games of all time.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling horror games that were released for PlayStation. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. You can vote for any of these items, from Resident Evil to Silent Hill.
